The high-voltage T20 World Cup clash between India and Pakistan was played in Dubai in front of a packed crowd. Many dignitaries were also seen enjoying the live action from the ground. The crowd was on its toes throughout the time of the match. Well, what caught the attention of the cricket fans was a section of the fans who were elated to see Shoaib Malik while he was fielding, and surprisingly, Sania Mirza has also reacted to this hilarious video in a fun way.
During the match on Sunday, while Shoaib Malik was fielding at the boundary, of course, near to the cricket fans, a group of fans started chanting Jijaji, which means brother in law. Well, Shoaib Malik has often been referred to by this term since he married Sania Mirza, the tennis star in 2008. The video of this chant has been circulating online for a while and thus, it has also caught the attention of Sania, who reacted hilariously.
This viral footage of the moment, which shows the cricketer turning around to look at the fans chanting jijaji for him, has been spreading on Twitter since the India-Pakistan match. It has gained over 4 lakh views on the microblogging platform. As Sania noticed this video, she reacted to it with some laughing and heart emoticons.
Well, by looking at this, many fans have appreciated the sportsmanship. A Twitter user wrote, “True audience of this game. win or lose is part of the game we should be proud of our legacy”. While another user commented, “Good one. Well played Shoaib and well played Pakistan. Deserving winners. He’s been around forever. 1999. Sania. And he hasn’t aged a bit. How he ran covering the boundaries in the match. Incredible.” Yet another user wrote, “Ab Shoaib Bhai to officially Jeeja ji hain hamare! Pukarna to banta hai!”
The video was initially posted by a Twitter user named mubeen. As the user uploaded the video, it had a caption that reads, “(@realshoaibmalik) Malik Sb itna pyar MashaAllah #PAKvIND #T20WorldCup”
Pakistan completed a 10-wicket victory against India during a match of the T20 World Cup 2021 at the Dubai International Stadium. So, Pakistan has ended their winless run against India in T20 World Cups as they successfully chased down the target of 152. The Men in Green rode on half-centuries from skipper Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan to scale the chase with all 10 wickets. Mohammad Rizwan hit 79* off 55, whereas Babar scored 68* off 52.
But the Player of the Match award was bestowed by Shaheen Afridi. The left-arm pacer indeed pushed India on the backfoot right in his first spell as he sent back KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma with just 6 runs on the board. He also dismissed Virat Kohli for 57.
Well, Malik didn’t get much of a role to play in the fixture as he didn’t bowl, and also, he didn’t get a chance to bat. India will now compete with New Zealand on October 31. Pakistan will next face Black Caps on Tuesday (October 26).
