Indian and Pakistani’s celebrate each other’s culture (dance, art, movies, etc) but turn frenemies once they are on the cricket pitch. While those across the border rejoiced when India lost a recent match, netizens here had a blast when they lost yesterday.
For those who do not know, Pakistan, one of the main contenders for the T20 World Cup, lost in the semi-finals to Australia. The Aussie completed Pakistan’s 177 runs in 19 overs thus securing a spot for themselves in the finale. They will not face New Zealand in the final, thus shattering Pakistan’s dream of winning the World Cup for the second time.
While this defeat of the Pakistan cricket team at the T20 semi-finals has left its nationals sad, many Indian cricket fans (and several others) were seen cheering. Taking their happiness to social media, many even started sharing memes celebrating the loss with loads of laughter. A Twitter page shared a picture reading “Ab jaake aaya mere bechain dil ko qaraar” with the caption “Indians after Pakistan’s loss today.” Another tweeted, “All of India celebrating this Pakistan loss against Australia” along with a scene from the Akshay Kumar starrer Welcome.
