The fiery exchanges between India and Pakistan cricket stars (current and former) continues with right-arm pacer Mohammed Shami latest to join the list. On Sunday, minutes after Pakistan’s defeat to England in the 2022 T20 World Cup final at the MCG, Shami’s response to a tweet by Shoaib Akhtar has gone viral.
Shoaib summed up his emotions at the defeat by sharing the emoji of a broken heart after England chased down the target of 138 in 19 overs to lift their second ever T20 world title and also became the first men’s team in history to simultaneously hold both T20 and ODI world titles.
Quoting the former Pakistan speedster’s tweet, Shami wrote, “Sorry brother” and added “It’s called karma” followed by emojis of broken heart.
