“Please send them a lot of love”, Popular journalist reveals the sorry state of Pakistan cricketers on the flight after the defeat to India

Pakistan was handed a tough loss by India on Sunday. At one point, it seemed to be an easy victory for the Pakistanis. However, Virat Kohli’s superhuman effort helped India win the game. A loss in such a manner would be difficult to handle for any team. The Pakistan squad was no different. Here, we take a look as a popular journalist reveals the sorry state of Pakistan cricketers on the flight after the defeat to India.

Pakistan players were distraught with their defeat to India

Although the start of the game did not go well, Pakistan did well to reach 159. With the strong bowling they had, they were in the game. Especially, with the start they had, it felt as if they would repeat the feat of the 2021 T20 World Cup. India was 31-4 and at that point, it was actually looking downhill for the Indians. However, Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya stitched a wonderful partnership. Even in the last over, things were looking Pakistan’s way. The men in green could not hold their nerves and hence, lost the match.

On the flight after the game, they were naturally gutted. A popular journalist and commentator, who was on the same flight with the Pakistanis, wrote about the state of the cricketers. Here is what he said:




The men in green can still make it to the semi-finals

While they lost the first game, it is not all over for the Babar Azam-led squad. They can still reach the final four, especially after South Africa’s game with Zimbabwe ended without a result.

Pakistan must now ensure that they win the remaining fixtures, importantly against the Proteas. With this performance, they would surely step inside the semi-finals. Even better, they could get a chance to meet India again if India also reaches the semi-finals and then wins the encounter. Pakistan should also reach the finals for that to happen.
