In the middle of all this cricket drama, former Pakistani fast bowling star Shoaib Akhtar went on Twitter to make fun of the situation. In a funny tweet, he quoted the popular Bollywood song “Barso re megha megha,” which roughly means “Let the rain pour, O clouds.” Akhtar’s tweet seemed to say that the rain should keep coming down, which could mean that the match would be cancelled and both teams would get one point. His clever tweet made the tense mood around the game a little bit funnier.
But, to Akhtar’s and many fans’ sorrow, the game did finally start up again, and Pakistan lost badly to India. Cricket fans on both sides of the line had a lot of different feelings after this heated match.
Three days later, in the Super 4 round of the Asia Cup 2023, Pakistan are in a “do or die” position against Sri Lanka. The stakes are high: if Pakistan wins, they will be in the final, but if they lose, they will be out and Sri Lanka will move on. But the weather report, which said it might rain, added an air of doubt to the game.
PAK vs SL Asia Cup 2023: Indian Fans Recall And Troll Shoaib Akhtar’s ‘Barsho Re Megha’ Tweet
Heavy rain put off the toss and the start of the match, which made me think of Shoaib Akhtar’s funny tweet from the India vs. Pakistan game. Indian fans couldn’t stop thinking about his “Barsho re megha megha” tweet, and some of them even made fun of him on social media.
One clever reply said, “When your wish comes true, but at the wrong time,” which summed up Akhtar’s earlier tweet’s irony nicely. Even though this joking made the situation more fun, it also showed how random cricket is and how the weather can affect the result of a game.
As cricket fans eagerly waited for the result of the match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, they couldn’t help but wonder if Akhtar’s tweet about rain would hit them back now. There was a good chance that it would rain, and if it did, Sri Lanka would make it to the final because they had a better net run rate.
In the end, cricket has a unique way of mixing stress and humour, especially when things like rain happen that aren’t expected. Shoaib Akhtar’s tweet “Barsho re megha megha” was a warning that anything can happen in the world of cricket, and fans are always ready to enjoy the ride, rain or shine.
