On Monday, October 23, Afghanistan handed Pakistan a crushing eight-wicket loss, marking a watershed moment in cricket history. This unprecedented triumph not only broke all previous standards in cricket, but also rocked the sport to its very core. The joyous festivities that broke out throughout Afghanistan became legendary and were heard well beyond the country’s boundaries.
The victory of Afghanistan’s cricket team was more than just a win; it was a demonstration of the squad’s unyielding determination. On the pitch, the Men in Blue displayed extraordinary skill, with their batting and bowling units working in perfect harmony. The world took notice of their historic victory, and not only because it won them national acclaim.
The celebrations were not limited to Afghanistan; rather, they were joined by cricket lovers from India. Their raucous applause resounded as they celebrated Afghanistan’s historic success and slyly poked fun at their bitter enemies, the Pakistani cricket team.
Kamran Akmal Slams Irfan Pathan On Dancing With Rashid Khan Post Pakistan’s Defeat
Former Indian cricketer and current World Cup host Irfan Pathan got lost in the crowd’s euphoria. His enthusiasm was contagious, and he even danced with Rashid Khan during a live broadcast. As an illustration of the tremendous friendship and sportsmanship that links players and fans together, this spontaneous celebration video quickly became a worldwide hit.
Irfan Pathan’s victory dance may have been entertaining to some, but it was not well received by Pakistanis. Upon hearing that Afghanistan had defeated Pakistan, former Pakistan wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal said, “I was surprised to see Irfan Pathan dance after Afghanistan beat Pakistan. When India beat Pakistan in Australia last year, that time also this kind of happiness was not seen.”
He added: “It was sad to see, not just for me, but for the nation. The broadcasters should make sure commentators are neural.”
Afghanistan’s historic win against Pakistan was more than just a cricket match; it was a moment of unity, celebration, and shared joy among Indian and Afghanistan fans.
