Watch – ‘Maaro mujhe maaro’ guy goes mad after Pakistan’s win over India
Pakistan stunned India in the ICC T20 World Cup as the Babar Azam-led team ended their losing streak against the Men in Blue with an impressive 10-wicket win in Dubai. Pakistan cricket fans all over the world went mad as India were the favourites to win the game having beaten arch-rivals on 12 occasions.
However, with Shaheen Afridi removing the two openers, there was no comeback for the remaining batters despite Virat Kohli a well-compiled fifty. Babar Azam (68* off 52) and Mohammad Rizwan (79* off 55) stitched a sensational unbeaten 152-run stand to lead Pakistan to victory. Popular Pakistani cricket fan Momin Saqib, fondly known as ‘Maaro mujhe maaro’ guy following a video that went viral during the India-Pakistan match in the World Cup in 2019, couldn’t control his emotions and went wild.
“10 wickets se Pakistan jeeta hai, mera dil chah raha hai main ye mitti ko kha jaaun (Pakistan has won by 10 wickets, I feel like eating the mud). It is a historic win. The voice of Pakistan cricket supporters will echo for the next 200 years in this stadium” Saqib said in a video he shared on his Instagram account.
Shaheen Afridi took wickets of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli and was given the Man of the Match award for his bowling display.
