The Pakistan cricket team is almost out of the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023 after New Zealand thrashed Sri Lanka on Thursday in Bengaluru. Following the thrilling game, former Indian opener Virender Sehwag, known for his hilarious and witty Tweets, took to his social media and roasted the Babar Azam-captained side.
Virender Sehwag Trolled Pakistan Ahead Of England Match
After the Kane Williamson-led New Zealand cricket team pulled off a comprehensive five-wicket win against Sri Lanka, Pakistan’s task to get to the semi-finals got trickier. Pakistan can equal the Kiwis at 10 points, however, they have got a lot to cover in terms of net run rate.
Meanwhile, ever since New Zealand defeated Sri Lanka in the game last night, social media has been buzzing with reactions from the fans, who are trolling the Pakistan cricket team left, right, and center. Among many, former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag also took to his Twitter and trolled the Pakistan cricket team.
With it now next-to-impossible to go through, Sehwag shared a hilarious Tweet, that read: “Bye, Bye, Pakistan”. Sehwag cheekily also wished them a safe flight back, the Tweet read: “Pakistan Zindabhaag! Have a safe flight back home.”
In another Tweet, Sehwag trolled Pakistan’s fate by writing: “Pakistan ki khaas baat hai ki jis team ko Pakistan support karti hai, woh team Pakistan ki tarah khelne lagti hai 😂.
Sorry Sri Lanka.”

Can Pakistan Still Qualify for Semi-Finals?
Well, it is an impossible mission. The Pakistan cricket team will now take on England. To qualify, Pakistan would like to bat first in the crucial game and must maintain a winning margin of at least 287 runs.
So, if the Pakistan cricket team manages to score 300 runs they will have to bowl out England on just 13 runs. In another scenario, if they are asked to bowl first, they must chase down the total in just 2.5 overs. New Zealand’s 5-wicket win over Sri Lanka with as many as 160 balls to spare has given an advantage to them by boosting their Net Run Rate up to +0.743 and has almost assured them of a semi-final spot.
