‘Two Upsets in Two Days’: Islamabad United Trolls India after Afghanistan’s Win Over England

In a surprising turn of events at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, Afghanistan secured a stunning 69-run victory over England during the 13th match held in Delhi. This remarkable win marked Afghanistan’s second triumph in the history of the ODI World Cup, with their first being a victory over Scotland during the 2015 World Cup. The Afghan team displayed exceptional skills and resilience, bowling out England for just 186 runs in pursuit of a target of 256. This win underscored the competitive nature of the World Cup, with underdog teams capable of causing upsets on any given day.

Amid the World Cup excitement, Islamabad United, a prominent franchise in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), playfully teased India after their recent victory over Pakistan in Ahmedabad. The franchise’s light-hearted post on social media humorously referred to two “upsets” within days. This playful banter was well-received by many Pakistanis, adding a touch of friendly rivalry to the cricketing atmosphere.

India’s performance in the ICC World Cup 2023 continued to shine, securing a commanding seven-wicket victory over Pakistan. Rohit Sharma was once again the star, displaying his exceptional batting skills with 86 runs off 63 deliveries, including 12 boundaries. Shreyas Iyer’s contribution as the second-highest scorer further solidified India’s win.

This victory extended India’s impressive record against Pakistan in World Cup matches, marking their eighth consecutive triumph over their arch-rivals. The result also improved India’s net run rate (NRR), positioning them well in the tournament. The World Cup 2023 promises more exciting matches and intense rivalries as teams vie for cricketing glory.
