The team who hasn’t played a game in its home country since 3 years. A country whose players are banned to gain T20 experience in the IPL. A team whose players don’t get nominated for awards. A team whose players are paid the lowest salaries in the world. A team whose tricked into scandals. A team who has qualified for the semis and finals of all the last 7-8 major tournaments, including WT20 and Asia Cup glories in 2009 and 2012 respectively. A team whose bowlers are on the top of all the bowling rankings. A team who has given us so many moments of pride. A team who has given us so many unexpected wins. Don’t forget, we were T20 World Champions in 2009. We love you all. 180 million people back here are proud of you boys. God bless you all. TEAM PAKISTAN ZINDABAAD!
Green team you never fail to amaze me. What a start and what an end. Though we lost but that’s another chance to win again. On a serious note I’m Glad i shared some good moments with my family and friends.
Pakistani Cricket team was under dire consequences I.e. as the trails in the court ended in UK and 3 of the best Pakistani Cricket players were jailed abroad in case of spot-fixing. This gave a hard blow to Pakistan’s Cricket future, but even under these consequences Pakistan took the challenge and challenged the world-cup finalists aka The Sri Lankans.
Entire series was planed out, with Test Matches, One Day Matches and a T20 Match at the end. There was not much hope in this series but as always Pakistani team was determined to win the hearts of its Nation.
The whole series was won by the Pakistani Team. Despite all the dark spots, they struggled to reveal their identity, Sri Lanka’s team Played well but they weren’t able to chase our tigers like Afridi, Misbah etc.
This win means alot to Pakistani teams though it also gives Sri Lankan Players a lesson for their upcoming series with South Africa.
Pakistani crowd at the stadium in Abu Dhabi raised their hoots to support the team and the captain of Pakistan’s Cricket team Misbah-ul-Haq said that “Due to supporters response we were motivated alot and we felt like if we were playing in our own home”
