The most-awaited match of this year’s Cricket World Cup just happened yesterday and oh, boy! It created huge chaos worldwide. Pakistan playing against India is just another story for true cricket fans from both sides of the border. The emotions involved and the urge to see your team win makes it even crazier.
Well, Pakistan Cricket Team’s performance in the current World Cup is not going pretty much in its favor. Consistent loses and showing no effort on the field is now making people question Sarfraz Ahmed’s captaincy and the strategies made beforehand. Considered as the least favorite team of the tournament is leaving Pakistani fans in sheer anger.
Every time, every tournament, cricket fans desperately wait for the Pakistan VS India game and hope for their national team to win. The exact same enthusiasm was witnessed yesterday in the pre-match scenes and the Old Trafford Cricket Ground was totally full. Being interrupted by rain twice didn’t even lower the morale of the fans present in the stadium. But as expected, Pakistan’s performance in the match was a total disaster and India won the match through the DLS method.
A set of pictures and videos were shared on the internet numerous times and it started a whole new debate among the masses. Some players from Pakistan Cricket Team were captured smoking sheesha in a club in the United Kingdom (UK) following the Pakistan VS India match. Shoaib Malik along with her wife Sania Mirza, Imam ul Haq, Imad Wasim, and Wahab Riaz were seen chilling with friends a night before the most important match of the tournament.
Here’s the video that went viral and raised a lot of questions!
Shoaib Malik with other team players was smoking Sheesha 7 hours before the start of match against India…

The video became the trending topic on the internet overnight and a roar of criticism was seen from the Pakistani fans. Predictions were made regarding the Pakistan Cricket Team’s performance and Sania Mirza served as the main target. Players lobbying against each other and calling Sania Mirza the main reason behind the defeat (as she is an Indian) were the major allegations that circulated the social media.
People took to Twitter to share their opinions on Pakistan Cricket Team’s performance. Here are some of the tweets:
Baat to theek hai magar baat hai ruswai ki!

Maybe, maybe not!
Imam ul Haq
Something is fishy, unuty against Sarfraz's captaincy. Is Imad Wasim or Shoaib Malik are trying to lobby team mates to become Captain?

The Indian Cricket Team was praised by Pakistanis as they played exceptionally well like they always do. Coming back to the matter, Sania Mirza tried to clear out the sheesha feud afterward. She replied in the context of the video that caught everybody’s attention.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has yet not issued any statement regarding the issue or the team’s performance. Now, Pakistan has to win every single match to qualify further or else instead of World Cup Trophy, Pakistan Cricket Team will be coming back home.
