Pakistan got the hands of England in the final match of T20 World Cup 2022 and their dream of winning the World Cup was shattered.
Mohammed Shami made fun of the legendary player of Pakistan
The Pakistan team, which made a wonderful comeback in the T20 World Cup, could not win the title despite all the coincidences. In the final match, England defeated Pakistan by five wickets and won the title for the second time. With this, Pakistan missed the chance to repeat 30 years old history at Melbourne Cricket Ground. There is an atmosphere of mourning in Pakistan due to this defeat. When veteran player Shoaib Akhtar expressed his grief, Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami reminded him of ‘karma’.
Pakistan was being considered as the contender for victory. The team scored 137 runs while batting first in the final. England achieved the target easily. It is very difficult for Pakistani fans and veterans to digest this defeat and they expressed their disappointment on social media. Pakistani captain Babar Azam’s desire to match the achievement of his country’s great cricketer Imran Khan (50-over World Cup winning team of 1992) could not be fulfilled at this ground.
Shami sprinkled salt on Akhtar’s wound
Shoaib Akhtar did not write any caption on social media immediately after this defeat, just posted an emoji of a broken heart. Responding to this, Mohammed Shami wrote, ‘Sorry brother, this is karma.’ With this tweet, Shami sprinkled salt on Akhtar’s wounds.
Its call karma 💔💔💔 https://t.co/DpaIliRYkd

Shami praised Pakistan’s bowling
Shoaib Akhtar said, ‘Pakistan lost the World Cup but the team showed a great game. You were nowhere but played the final. The turning point of the match was Shaheen Afridi’s injury. Never mind, don’t let us drop our heads from here. Like Ben Stokes had defeated the first World Cup by hitting five sixes and won it today. We will also lift the trophy in India. Shami also praised Pakistan after teasing Shoaib. He wrote, ‘Happy Jos Buttler and England. You deserved this win. Ben Stokes played a brilliant inning. Well bowled by Pakistan.
