When the ICC World Cup is approaching, a lot of Pakistani cricket fans look for parallels to the 1992 World Cup, which was the only time the Men in Green were successful in taking home the precious trophy.
One of the Pakistani users of the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, shared an amusing video comparing the Green Shirts’ World Cup 2023
Some of the commonalities mentioned in the film included India winning the Asia Cup, a Pakistani bowler getting hurt, Pakistan’s ODI rankings, and the team leader not being married.
