India South Africa Match: T20 World Cup: Pakistan fans want India to win today against South Africa; meme fest erupts on Twitter
For cricket lovers, especially those from Pakistan, it is a drama-filled Sunday. After Zimbabwe defeated Pakistan by one run, Babar Azam’s team’s hopes of advancing to the next round of the T20 World Cup were severely harmed. It was a terrific performance by India a few days ago when Virat Kohli’s valiant efforts enabled the team to snatch victory from Pakistan’s grasp. This was their second straight loss in the T20 World Cup, after Pakistan lost to Zimbabwe. However, if you factor in all the ifs and buts, Pakistan’s World Cup quest is far from over.
First and foremost, Pakistan have to win all three of its remaining Super 12 games and do so with a big margin to keep their hopes alive. The Craig Ervine-led team of Zimbabwe, on the other hand, has three games remaining in the Super 12 round, and Pakistan would be anxious for them to lose at least two of them.
Pakistan’s hopes may now be placed in India’s ability to defeat South Africa on Sunday. Pakistan’s chances to get to the semifinals would be bolstered by South Africa’s loss at the hands of Rohit Sharma’s team.
Pakistani supporters have enthusiastically backed India since there is so much at stake, and the epic rivalry has temporarily been put on hold.
Many Pakistanis (and even Indians) have created memes to show how Pakistani supporters would support India’s victory against South Africa. Here’ are some:
1.5 billion are going to support India tomorrow. Agar tab bhi na jeeta to ye qudrat ka nizam hai, qubool karlena.
