The clash between Pakistan and South Africa at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 was in full swing at Lord’s stadium.
A resurgent Pakistan made an emphatic comeback from their dismal performance against India last week with a 47-run victory over South Africa in the 30th match of the World Cup at Lord’s Cricket Ground on Sunday.
The Greenshirts won the toss and batted first, setting a hefty 309-run target for the Proteas that they struggled valiantly to meet, ultimately crashing out of the tournament.
Moments after a much-needed victory by Pakistan in their match against South Africa at Lord’s on Sunday, Twitter was abuzz with cricket enthusiasts weighing in on the Green Shirts’ performance.
Another thing which captured people attention was Imran Tahir’s celebration. The 40-year-old South Africa bowler celebrated with his distinctive style – running around wildly from one end to another. The social media users had their take on it.
While some people compare him with Usain Bolt, others suggest not to book a flight ticket for Tahir and let him get a wicket at the last moment of the game so that he could himself travel to the next venue by running.
Here are a few hilarious tweets and memes:
