Lo and behold, Our green shirts did it again. Pakistan bagged another victory against New Zealand in the T20i world cup. And we cannot contain our excitement. The intense atmosphere that took over Sharjah with the jam packed crowd chanting for Pakistan, undoubtedly created pressure for the kiwis. Although New Zealand’s captain made a statement prior to the match saying he hopes Pakistan won’t hold any grudge for abandoning the tour and will play in full spirit. Well, can’t say anything about the grudge but the game was played not just in full spirit but also in full bouncing back action.
Pakistan won the toss and chose to bowl which again proved to be a great decision by the captain Babar, as the boys bowled Yorkers, LBW’s and managed to make perfect catches taking 8 of NZ’s wickets. And the entire atmosphere of the ground changed in hopes of bagging this victory against our abandoners.
As the green shirts began to bat, the match became unexpectedly intense and most of us were definitely biting our nails as our 5th wicket fell. After all, we had to show NZ what they missed out on by abandoning the tour and we had to avenge our heartbreak. The hopes of everyone stuck with Asif Ali and Shoaib Malik on the pitch and Boy, they did not disappoint.
Here we go again.

Let’s not forget, the majority crowd in Sharjah were chanting for Pakistan and they could just not stop mocking the Kiwis in ground. Akhir humour main Pakistanion ko kon peechay chor sakta hai.
Nevertheless, Congratulations to Pakistan for securing another victory and making the nation extremely proud. Our respect and support for the Green shirts are immense and we hope to bring home the Trophy soon.

As for New Zealand, don’t worry we surely did not hold any grudge.
