Virender Sehwag trolls Pakistan after Indian women’s Asia Cup victory

Indian women’s cricket team’s sixth consecutive Asia Cup triumph was more sweeter as it came at the expense of their arch rivals Pakistan and Virender Sehwag didn’t waste the opportunity to troll the neighbours.

“Congratulations Girls on beating Pakistan in the Women’s #AsiaCup . The Girls played really well. No Mauka for the opposition,” tweeted Sehwag referring to the iconic advertisement of broadcaster Star Sports.

This ad became famous since the 2015 ICC Men’s World Cup. In the original commercial was a hilarious take on Pakistan’s inability to beat India in World Cup matches and soon it went viral with different versions flocking the internet.

Veteran Mithali Raj, who was removed as T20 captain before the start of the tournament, made a statement with an unbeaten 73 to guide India to 121 for five in 20 overs. The bowlers then bowled brilliantly to limit Pakistan to 104 for six, completing a comprehensive 17-run win. The star with ball once against was left-arm spinner Ekta Bisht, who took two wickets conceding 22 runs in her four overs.

It was the second time that India got the better of Pakistan in the competition, having beaten them by five wickets in the league stage besides remaining unbeaten in five games en route to the final. It was also a sweet revenge of sorts for India, who had lost to Pakistan during the World T20 at home in March.
