Christian Turner, the British High Commissioner to Pakistan, congratulated Babar Azam’s team on winning hearts despite losing to the Kangaroos in the T20 World Cup Semi-final.
Turner rushed to Twitter and sent an Urdu tweet. Match chahaay haar gaye par dil jeet liya [You win the heart even if you lose the match]. The tweet reads, “Well played Team Pakistan,” as the British envoy anticipates the upcoming visit between Pakistan and England.
Turner sent out an unusual tweet as New Zealand cruised to a five-wicket victory over England. “Whew, that was a ride. Now I’m waiting for my other squad to finish! Pakistan par sab sab sab sab sab sab sab “Congratulations,” read the caption.
