‘Jaldi out hojata hun fir biryani bhi toh khani hai’ – Fans react as Netherlands stun Pakistan by dismissing Babar Azam for meager 5 runs in ODI World Cup Clash



In the second match of the ODI World Cup 2023, Pakistan are taking on the Netherlands at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Friday, October 6. The Dutch team won the toss and decided to put Pakistan into bat first. Their decision turned out to be a masterstroke as they quickly put pressure on the Pakistani batting lineup.

One of the major setbacks for Pakistan came early in the match when their star batter and captain, Babar Azam, was dismissed for just 5 runs after facing 18 balls. This was a major blow to Pakistan’s hopes of posting a formidable total on the board. With this embarrassing knock, Babar gave a chance to the fans to troll him on social media.

Netherlands’ bowlers displayed remarkable skill and precision during the first powerplay, taking three important wickets and keeping the pressure on the Pakistani batters. Logan van Beek provided the first breakthrough by dismissing Fakhar Zaman on just 12 runs. Colin Ackermann got Babar in the 9th over while in the very next over Imam-ul-Haq was also dismissed by Paul van Meekeren.

Their disciplined bowling performance was instrumental in stifling the Pakistanis and limiting their scoring opportunities. Interestingly, Babar, during the toss, said that they will aim for a 300+ total.

“We will try our best with the bat. We believe in our openers, Imam and Fakhar. Shaheen is there as well. Hasan is back in the side. We are looking at 290-300 plus.” Babar said during the toss.

The game is poised delicately, and cricket fans around the world are eagerly watching to see if Pakistan can recover from their early setbacks and post a competitive total, or if the Netherlands will continue their impressive bowling display and secure a vital victory in this crucial ODI World Cup clash.
