Cricket Desk: If you are a Pakistan supporter, then 24th October 2021 is a day that you will never forget. For, the Babar Azam-led Pakistan side scripted history, beating India for the first time ever in World Cup cricket to start their campaign in the 2021 T20 World Cup on a rousing note.

The Pakistan side outplayed India in every department of the game. Batting first, the Indian side posted a total of 151/7 on the board, and it was batting maestro Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant who helped India reach there. While Kohli scored a sedate 57, Pant scored a 30-ball 39. Pakistan left-arm seamer Shaheen Afridi produced a superb performance with the ball and picked up 3 wickets.

In reply, Pakistan broke no sweat at all. The Pakistan openers came out with a positive mindset and made the Indian side chase leather. And, Pakistan won the match with a whopping 10 wickets to spare and hammered India in Dubai.

And, former Pakistan bowling legend, Shoaib Akhtar took a dig at Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh following Pakistan’s thumping victory over India. Before the match between India and Pakistan, Harbhajan Singh told Shoaib Akhtar that Pakistan should give a walkover to India.

And now, Akhtar has given it back to Harbhajan after Pakistan’s resounding triumph. In a tweet posted by Akhtar, the ‘Rawalpindi Express’ is asking Harbhajan Singh whether Pakistan should give a walkover to the Indian side. Akhtar also asked Harbhajan to relax and enjoy the day.

“Haan Bhaaji, walkover dena hai? Nahi dena hai? Achcha. Kya kar sakte hai. Relax yaar. Enjoy the day,” said Akhtar in the video.

Shoaib Akhtar is one of the all-time bowling greats of Pakistan cricket. Akhtar represented Pakistan in 46 Tests, 163 ODIs, and 15 T20Is. While the right arm pacer scalped 178 wickets in the whites, Akhtar also picked up 247 wickets in ODI cricket. In the T20I format of the game, Akhtar prized out 19 willow wielders. Shoaib Akhtar played his last international match for Pakistan in March 2011.
