Today, the entire nation witnessed the brutal reality of Pakistan’s national cricket team in the ODIs. Just after being ranked as number 1 test team in the world, the whole country opened its eyes to see the other side of the coin; Pakistan Cricket Team’s ODI performance.
As if the British rule on the subcontinent was not enough, Pakistan knelt like a slave once again and gave away first three ODIs to England. Being 3-0 up in a 5 ODI series, England has won the series and would only be looking forward to improving their ICC rankings.
People have reacted in a lot of ways. Some suggested a change in captaincy, while others preferred to express their dissatisfaction after watching England score a blistering 443 runs; the highest target in ODI format by any team.

However, Misbah ul Haq, a villain-turned-hero in the eyes of the Pakistanis, came to the team’s rescue and tried to console the defeat with these words:
We all fall down in life the question is who gets up?Winners are not those who never fail but those who never quit! Still three to go.

While some tried to spin the situation towards humor
Look what we discovered:
Wahab Riaz becomes first Pakistan bowler ever to concede 100 runs in ODIs. #EngvPak

The Indians were not going to be the ones who would let such an auspicious occasion to pass by. This is what some of them had to say:

Let us now hope, and pray, that the lads pick themselves up, and show a good fighting in the remainder of the tour to England.
