India had to bear an embarrassing defeat against Pakistan by 10 wickets as they went on to lose their Super 12 opener. India were found absolutely clueless on the night when Pakistan players started attacking from the very beginning. They aced all the departments of the game and literally didn’t leave any room for Indians to breathe.

In the same line of events, many fans and experts wished the Indian team good luck for their much-awaited game against arch-rivals Pakistan. Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh also joined the bandwagon and had his usual hilarious way to extend the wishes to the team before the match.

Singh posted a picture on his official IG where he could be seen jumping on Ashish Nehra whereas Virat Kohli stood aside laughing. “Come on boys let’s do this! I mean let’s win the game this one for later. good luck @virat.Kohli and the boys go team india @rd.nehra,” he captioned his post.

Talking of the match, Pakistan won the toss and chose to show up with the ball first and Shaheen Shah Afridi turned out to be the wrecker in chief as he started sizzling from his very first over. He sent back all the big fishes of India and went on to clinch the player of the match award. India could post 151 runs on the board as skipper Kohli chipped in with a crucial fifty.

However, as soon as Pakistan started chasing, Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam made it a children’s play and pushed Pakistan over the line by 10 wickets.

“It is the good wishes of my parents and all Pakistanis. Very happy with my performance. The plan was to bring the ball back in. I was just trying to swing it and I was just looking to give the team a breakthrough. That was what I practiced in the nets as well yesterday. Batting against the new ball was tough. The credit goes to Babar and Rizwan for the way they played. All teams are good in the tournament and we will look to carry this momentum through and go to the finals,” said Afridi after the match.
