New Delhi: England’s weak team defeated Pakistan by 52 runs in the second ODI on Saturday to take a 2-0 lead in the three-match series after the main players were hit by the corona virus. Pakistan’s team was a complete flop in the second consecutive match.
The main players were infected with Corona
For the first time since the start of the pandemic last year, there was no limit on the entry of spectators into the stadium and about 23,000 spectators arrived at Lord’s to watch this match. England was forced to choose a second-class team for the ODI series due to the players going on isolation after the case of corona virus infection in the main team.
Fans made fun of
As soon as Pakistan’s team had to face defeat against the new team of England, then people started trolling them fiercely on social media. Fans say that Pakistan should play against Zimbabwe again only then they will win. At the same time, many fans are trolling Pakistan’s star batsman Babar Azam.
