Cricket may be one of the most popular sports of the world but this is also true that it is just the men’s cricket which mostly gets love of the cricket fans and women’s cricket lacks far behind in terms of popularity in comparison to men’s cricket. However, the good part is that women’s cricket is slowly getting famous and we can see pretty good number of viewers in the stadiums during the matches. Social media is also playing an important role in increasing the popularity of women’s cricket and women cricketers.
ICC T20 Women Cricket World Cup 2020 is being played in Australia nowadays and recently, a video was shared by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in which Pakistani female cricketers were seen dancing and having fun. In the video, Pakistani women cricketers Iram Javed and Muneeba Ali were seen along with two Pak players and one of them was using cricket bat as a mic.
ICC shared the video with the caption, “The @TheRealPCB team are absolute rockstars!”

As soon as the video was posted, social media users started reacting on it, while there were some who were happy to see these cricketers using music as stress-buster, many Pakistanis slammed the cricketers as dance and music are considered as bad (Haraam) in Islam. There were also few who criticised them for their game and advised them to play cricket in a good manner rather than just enjoying over there.
Here are some of the selected tweets:
