The green shirts are back in the game with a stunning victory over hosts England. The match proved to be an absolute thriller till the very last over with Pakistan winning by 14 runs against one of the favorites of CWC 2019.
After a horrendous defeat against West Indies in their first match, Pakistan made a massive comeback in their second match and we cannot be more proud of our national team!
The unpredictable Pakistan cricket team does it again and the social media is going crazy!

Congratulations to the Pakistan cricket team for a great win and for coming back into form after a poor start in the warm up matches and the first WC match. You have the talent, all you need is the self belief that you can go all the way.

And Ian Bishop says ‘Never Write off Pakistan’!
Lose 4 nil to the Worlds No1 team coming into the World Cup. Get demolished by a team that had to qualify for the CWC in your 1st game. Lose your last 11 completed ODI’s. Take down the No 1 ranked team next game. Never write off Pakistan👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻.
