The Indian cricket team has once again defeated its arch-rival Pakistan in the ongoing Asia Cup. In fact, it won’t be wrong to say that in the second encounter, Indian players crushed Pak cricketers. The match was played in Dubai and Pakistan gave a target of 238 runs to India which the team achieved with 10.3 overs remaining.
Shoaib Malik was the highest scorer for Pakistan with 78 runs and there was no other Pak batsman who was comfortable in front of Indian bowlers. Among the Indian bowlers, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav took three wickets each.
The start of the Indian innings was awesome as the Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan played a record opening partnership of 210 runs. Both the batsmen scored centuries; Shikhar Dhawan scored 114 before getting run out while the skipper remained not-out on 111 and took his team to the finals of the tournament. This is the biggest victory of India against Pakistan in terms of wickets and the opening partnership of 210 runs is also the highest opening partnership for India against its arch-rival in the One-Day Internationals.
Indian Twitter users were already making fun of Pakistani cricketers after the last match’s defeat but yesterday, Pakistani fans were also so upset that they trolled their own cricketers.
Here are some selected tweets that express the disappointment of Pakistani citizens:

They batted Shit.
They bowled Shit.
They fielded Shit.
Dropping 6 catches is not a bad luck. Its just poor performance.#PAKvIND
