DUBLIN – A video of vice-captain Shadab Khan sobbing in the pavilion during Pakistan’s loss to Zimbabwe in the 2017 T20 World Cup has gone viral.

Shadab broke down in tears in one of his recordings as he was seen on his knees, visibly devastated after the rare loss against underdog Zimbabwe. The second consecutive defeat in a span of three days not only displeased the fans but also the players.

Shadab, one of the most successful T20I bowlers, gave it his all in a thrilling Group 2 match in Perth, but Zimbabwe overcame Men in Green, putting Babar’s team in risk of leaving the mega-event early.

As Shahab’s video circulates online, some cricket fans defend him, while others claim that the game can occasionally be harsh.

Others who follow the all-rounder on social media comfort him by explaining that losing is inevitable in sports.

The humiliating loss also spurred a discussion on social media as netizens questioned how the team was chosen.
