From Lahore to Islamabad. After losing to India for the first time on the World Cup stage, the whole of Pakistan is in a frenzy. The sound of gunfire came with the fireworks.
And in the atmosphere of that festival, Babar Azam is going to respond again on Tuesday. The name of the opponent is New Zealand! Last month, Trent Bolt returned to Pakistan after canceling his tour due to lack of security. That insult has left a deep scar on the minds of the Pak people.
As Shoaib Akhtar said on a Pakistani television channel on Monday, India has lost, but remember New Zealand is also our enemy. The manner in which they canceled the tour was an insult to the whole country. You have to give his answer on the field.
Why did Williamson have to face the bouncer in the press conference on that day? Who gave the message of peace before the battle began. He said that the friendly relations between the cricketers of the two countries are the same as before. So hopefully, the game will be played while maintaining the cricketing tradition. Williamson said the two teams have had a good relationship for a long time. We have played a lot of matches against each other in the past. I believe that Pakistan will erase the memory of that unfortunate incident a month ago.
No matter what Williamson says, the attitude of retaliation is more than peace in the Pak camp. That message was given by Ramiz Raja before the start of the World Cup. The new chairman of the Pakistan board remarked that at one time our goal was neighboring India. Two more countries have been added to it this time. New Zealand and England. Pakistan will have to give a worthy answer in the World Cup.
Today, Pakistan is getting another chance to take revenge. The Babar-Rizwans will play their second match in the Super Twelve against New Zealand tonight at 10 pm ET.
Toxic inswing with Shaheen Shah Afridi's speed. Rule of Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan with bat. With the fighting mentality of two experienced Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik. All in all, New Zealand has to face the ordeal in the first match.
