Last night team India defeated Pakistan by 89-runs at the ICC World Cup 2019 which took place at the Old Trafford cricket stadium in Manchester.
India is now 7-0 against Pakistan in a world cup tournament. Batting first India set a mammoth target of 337 runs. Batting second Pakistan, chasing 337 batted extremely poorly and dropped and lost six wickets with the score of only 166 before a rain delay saw their target revised to another 136 runs required from 30 balls via the Duckworth Lewis method.
Although Pakistan’s top order played well and after losing an early wicket both Babur Azam and Fakhar Zaman managed to score a 100-run partnership. But it didn’t last long as both batsmen fell prey to Kuldeep Yadav shortly after and soon the rest of the wickets started falling quickly.
As the Pakistani team has suffered another embarrassing defeat to India, emotional Pakistani fans are angry at the players after a video emerged of players smoking hookah and eating burgers at a cafe in Manchester.
Pakistan lost the match just because of 🍔 burger

“I just came to know that the Pakistani players were having pizza and burgers last night. The Pakistani players should go for wrestling instead of cricket. Look at their fitness. We had so many hopes pinned on them and they were having pizza and burgers,” said the emotional Pakistani fan.
