Pakistan pace bowler Mohammad Amir took a cheeky jab at former Indian bowler, Harbhajan Singh after Pakistan inflicted a 10-wicket defeat on India. Babar Azam‘s men dominated the match right from ball one against a lackluster Indian performance.
It was Pakistan’s first win over India in World Cups and it took them a whopping thirteen attempts to do so. The win was achieved in the most stomping fashion possible, with Babar and Mohammad Rizwan stitching a 152-run first-wicket partnership to take them over the line.
Following the win, former Pakistani players were elated and congratulated the team on Twitter. Others took to Twitter to hit back at certain people who were confident about India’s win, namely Harbhajan Singh.
Amir took to Twitter to write: “hello everyone woh pochna yeah tha @harbhajan_singh paa ji ne TV to ni tora apna koi ni hota hai end of the day its a game of cricket.”

It was in response to what Harbhajan had said prior to the T20 World Cup match. The former off-spinner had asked in jest for a walkover because of India’s impeccable record against Pakistan.
“I told Shoaib Akhtar that there is no point of playing against us, give us a walkover instead. You will play against us, we will beat you and you will be disappointed. There is no point,” Harbhajan had said.
The defeat would have hurt India’s morale and they quickly need to regroup in the match against New Zealand on October 31, Sunday.
