In the current T20 world championship, the Pakistan men’s cricket team has suffered two consecutive losses. One was in a hard-fought match against their traditional opponent India, and the other – the more humiliating – came on Thursday against Zimbabwe, which is not considered a strong team in the cricket world. The result of the second match has been widely categorized as the biggest disruption to the tournament to date. Numerous critical comments have been made against “Men in Green” on social media in response to these losses.
Kunal Kamra, an Indian comedian and YouTuber, poked fun at Pakistani cricket captain Babar Azam by tweeting about his weak performance, which is strikingly similar to what Babar Azam posted about Indian cricketer Virat Kohli in July this year.

“Dear Babar Azam, this too shall pass,” Kunal Kamra wrote, adding emojis depicting hysterical laughter. This was in response to Babar’s tweet in July where he used Virat Kohli’s photo and said, “This too will pass. Stay strong. #ViratKohli”

Meanwhile, several former cricketers blame the cricketers and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Ramiz Raja for the team’s disappointing show in Australia.
Mohammed Amir, one of the best pacers to ever play for Pakistan, has asked Raja to step down as PCB chairman after the team’s embarrassing performance against minnows Zimbabwe.
Legendary pacesetter Shoaib Akhtar expressed disappointment after Pakistan’s defeats.
“I don’t know why it’s so hard for you to understand. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again that with our top and middle classes we can achieve great success. We cannot win consistently “Pakistan has a bad captaincy . Pakistan is out of the World Cup. Nawaz has bowled the last over in the three games we lost,” Akhtar said in a video uploaded to his YouTube channel.
