The ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 was a rollercoaster of emotions for cricket fans worldwide. However, one of the most significant talking points of the tournament was Pakistan’s shocking exit from the group stages. The Pakistan National Cricket Team’s underwhelming performance left fans disheartened, and one man, in particular, took full advantage of their misfortune – Irfan Pathan.
The cricketing world had high hopes for Pakistan as they entered the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. With a rich history in the sport and a talented squad, expectations were running high. However, the team failed to live up to the hype, managing to secure only four victories out of the nine games they played during the group stage.
Their final game against England at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata sealed their fate with a crushing 93-run defeat. The loss not only marked the end of Pakistan’s campaign but also provided fodder for critics and trolls, none more prolific than Irfan Pathan.
Irfan Pathan, former all-rounder for the India National Cricket Team, has established himself as a master of wit and sarcasm, particularly when it comes to trolling arch-rivals Pakistan. His social media antics have become legendary, and he has consistently targeted Pakistan, especially after their dismal performances.
After each loss, Pathan wastes no time in taking a jab at Pakistan. Whether it’s a clever tweet or a humorous meme, he knows how to get under the skin of Pakistan cricket fans. And the final game against England was no exception.
Irfan Pathan Hits Back To Trolls Regarding His Dance With Rashid Khan
One incident that added fuel to the fire was Pathan’s dance with Rashid Khan after Afghanistan beat Pakistan in a thrilling World Cup 2023 encounter in Chennai. This dance became the talk of the town and further fueled the rivalry. Pakistan fans and former cricketers were quick to criticize Pathan for his actions, accusing him of mocking their team.
As Pakistan faced defeat against England in their final group stage game, Irfan Pathan seized the opportunity to troll them once more. He took to his official social media handle and posted a cheeky message that left Pakistan cricket fansfuming. His post, written in a mix of Hindi and English, read, “Kai padosi X cricketers ke dil ke arman ansuoo mein behe gaye. #dance,” which translates to “The desires of my heart swept away with my tears.”
This post not only taunted Pakistan but also ignited a social media storm. It was shared, commented on, and dissected by fans and media alike, keeping the spotlight firmly on Irfan Pathan and his relentless trolling.
