One catch at the long off and the injury that followed was the tipping point that shattered the dreams of crores of Pakistani fans to see their team lift the coveted T20 World Cup for the second time.

Pakistan’s bowling was doing exceptionally well against the English batting and could have pulled it off as well had Shaheen Afridi remained to complete his spell. His knee injury returned to haunt Pakistan at the most crucial point in their T20 WC campaign.

Ben Stokes’s heroics yet again came to England’s rescue to win the world title for them and went on to become the first team in cricketing history to hold ODI and T20 World Cups together.

The heartbroken Pakistani fans are overwhelmed in sharing their thoughts on the crucial encounter between their team and the champion England and the moment of Shaheen Shah Afridi’s injury that could have possibly taken their World Cup hopes away.

Here are some of the tweets by Pakistani fans:

Sam Curran was adjudged the Man-of-the-Match for his stunning 3 wickets in the spell and went to lift the recognition of Player of the tournament for his staggering performance all throughout the campaign taking 13 wickets.

However, England’s big match hero Ben Stokes stitched the chase with a stable and patient innings scoring 50 to ensure he makes for his side, accompanied by Harry Brooks and later Moeen Ali towards the end.
