With Pakistan feeling insulted after New Zealand and England both cancelled their tours to the country, T20 World Cup became all the more important. Fans were waiting, biting their nails, to see the performance of the Pakistani team. It seems all the nail-biting was not really required as Pakistan kept securing monumental wins.
Pakistan’s track record in the World Cup
The streak began with India which was probably the most important win. Given the match was with its archrival, the game became possibly as important as if it was the World Cup final. Incredible that the performance was, Pakistan chased the target without losing a single wicket.
The second instalment was with New Zealand and while the fans were scared, the Pakistani team emerged victorious there as well. With the cultural ties attached to Afghanistan, Twitter did not see too many memes but the fans could not hide the glee.
Pakistan Vs Namibia
The recent team Pakistan encountered was Namibia. Against them, our team won the toss and chose to bat. While playing carefully in the first ten overs, all the players chose to strike big in the next ten, taking the target up to 190 runs.
Namibia could not follow through and was able to score only 144 runs. In their own space, the team played well but were a no match against Pakistan.
With the win in the bag, Twitter was showering congrats from all over the world and onto the Pakistani team.

Four wins in a row for Pakistan. One more win and it'll be partying like it's 1999, two more wins and it'll be partying like it's 1992. An exciting run, up to now. #PAKvsNAM

With the hope that the overconfidence of the fans does not jinx the performance, Pakistan is now gearing up for the match against Scotland. Win or lose, the team has already qualified for the semi-final. Let’s pray that not only do we get to the final but also bring the World Cup home. Keeping an eye on the Indian team’s performance never gets old either. Hence, until Sunday which is when Pakistan plays against Scotland, how about watching India vs Afghanistan?
