Afghan Mystery Girl Turns 'Blue' After India THRASH Pakistan In Asia Cup 2023 Super 4s; See Pic
The Afghanistan cricket team was knocked out of the Asia Cup 2023, but the team's biggest fan still watches the game with the same enthusiasm.
Remember Wazhma Ayoubi, the mysterious girl from the Asia Cup 2023 who went popular after she was seen wearing traditional clothes while watching Afghanistan play Bangladesh. She hasn't gone to Sri Lanka to watch Asia Cup games, but she still cheers from the UAE, where she lives and works.
After Afghanistan was eliminated, Wazhma became a fan of India, her second "home" team. During the group games, she cheered for the Men in Blue against Pakistan and Nepal.
When India played Pakistan in the Super 4s on September 10 and 11, Wazhma again cheered for India. She praised Rohit Sharma and the rest of the team after they crushed Pakistan by 228 runs.
Wazhma didn't just tell India how happy she was for them, she also picked her words carefully. Wazhma wrote 'Bharat' instead of 'India' to thank the Men in Blue.
Earlier, when Kohli hit more than 13,000 runs in ODIs, she praised him as well. Wazhma said that she was a "lucky charm" and that Team India seems to be in good shape right now. She also praised 'King Kohli' for scoring a hundred against Pakistan. Wazhma wrote, "Century of the GOAT" when he talked about his hundred.
Pakistan won the coin toss and asked India to bat first in the game, which lasted two days. Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill both hit 50s, which got India's batting off to a good start. Before Rohit fell, the first pair had scored 121 runs.
Gill also got out, and then Virat Kohli and KL Rahul worked together to get the team to 356 for 2 after 50 overs. Both Virat and Rahul hit tonnes, and the Pakistani bowlers got beat up badly.
Shaheen Afridi lost one wicket and gave up 79 runs in 10 overs. The pacers Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah both got hurt, which was another bad thing for Pakistan. In 32 overs, Pakistan was bowled out for just 128 runs as it tried to reach the goal. This is the most that India has won by against Pakistan in an ODI.
India and Pakistan will probably play each other again in the tournament's final on September 17. On Tuesday, September 12, India plays Sri Lanka in the second match of the event.
