In a game that was completely dominated by India, Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir was the only bright spot as he returned figures of 3/47 from his 10 overs. And the loss has not gone down well with the Pakistan fans as they took to social media to express their displeasure. But Amir has requested them to not use bad words even though they are free to criticise the players.
Taking to Twitter, Amir wrote: "Pls don't use bad words for the players yes u guys can criticise our performance we will bounce back InshAllah we need ur support (sic)."
As various social media platforms went berserk after India's historic win over arch-rival Pakistan in the World Cup, the unanimous winner was twitterati from the other side of the border that created jokes, memes, GIFs and one-liners on the Sarfaraz Ahmed-led team.
The moment the rain-hit match at the Old Trafford in Manchester on Sunday went into final overs, users from Pakistan began bashing their team, although keeping the humour intact - be it Ahmed's yawning face on the field or Shoaib Malik being dismissed for a duck.
