For diehard Pakistani cricket fans, yesterday was no less than a huge disappointment!
Not just because our team lost against India, people were totally disheartened by the below average performance of our team in a top-notch match. Just like after winning a match Pakistani fans cannot stop praising our national team similarly, after this horrendous defeat, social media is now filled with disappointment and sadness.
And amidst all this tension, a picture of some Pakistani cricketers before PakvInd match have further sparked anger on social media and they cannot stop reacting to it.
In this picture, Shoaib Malik, Wahab Riaz, Imad Wasim, and Imam-ul-Haq can be seen sitting in a restaurant smoking Sheesha at 2 am on Sunday, just a few hours before the much-hyped Pakistan vs India world cup match.
Shoaib Malik’s wife and Indian tennis star, Sania Mirza can also be spotted in this picture alongside other friends.
Have a look at these pictures!
Where fans are looking for reasons to blame for the loss against India, this picture is being critically analyzed and is being held at the major reason for the shameful defeat.
The fans who spotted these Pakistani cricketers in the restaurant night before have posted a video message for them asking the reason of their super irresponsible attitude.

The passion and zeal that Pakistanis have for cricket is the reason why they cannot just let it go!
This man ruined team when he was captain by grouping and doing unjust with Razzaq and Shoaib Akhtar. His disgusting selection made It very Clear he tried his best to drop Amir who is now leading striker other than his relatives don't know for what reason he selected Shoaib Malik

Shoaib Malik out on zero. At 2am on Sunday, he was at the Winslow Road sheesha bar with his wife and mates. This was the kind of preparedness against India. Where’s the mighty ehsan mani and IK’s promise of taking pak cricket to new heights in Naya Pakistan.

After this picture went viral on the internet, Sania Mirza shut down a troll for disrespecting their privacy.
However, this Pakistani fan has an answer for this too!
No dear we are not angry but shoaib Malik will always receive lanats in deep fathom for the longer period. https://t.co/7R7oivm2pD

And all they want is some major changes in Pakistan cricket team to save ourselves from future embarrassment!
Professional team takes pride in being called ' the unpredictables '.. what can you say.. if shoaib Malik can still be a part of team, don't expect any good. @iamamirofficial should be considered for captaincy. Fire all senior players plzz..

I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again; don’t let Sarfraz, Shoaib Malik, Hafeez and anyone who’s not physically fit play again even if they perform in the remaining games
Don’t let them even if they won the world cup despite all odds for they’re highly unfit and fat

And some are taking a dig at our players in a humorous way *memes all the way*

Indians and Pakistanis spare no chance to troll each other when it comes to cricket. After India won against Pakistan yesterday, some Indian fans also thanked Shoaib Malik aka ‘Damad Ji’ for playing a part in their win.

Shoaib Malik has redeemed himself by getting out on zero in WC match against India. Request all to forgive him for his purported support to Paki jihaadis during India-Pak skirmishes post Pulawama killing. Let him visit India with love and in peace @MirzaSania @BJP4India

We all know that Pakistani are very enthusiastic about cricket more than any other sport. And, when it comes to Pakistan vs India matches, emotions and patriotism always play a major role.
After yesterday’s defeat, many Pakistani celebrities have also expressed their concern over our team performance.
Time to say goodbye to:

Where the fans want Pakistani cricketers to step up their game, they are also asking them to play as a team as they think there is no zeal in their performances except for a few players. Because at the end of the day, they will keep supporting the team in future matches but definitely expect a better game.
