“Padosiyon jeet ati jaati rehti hai, lekin GRACE apke bas ki baat nahi hai (Neighbours, winning and losing is part and parcel of the game but grace doesn’t come naturally to you),” Irfan had tweeted on Friday, after a scientific present from the Pakistan aspect noticed them attain their first T20 World Cup ultimate since 2009 and first at an ICC occasion in 5 years.

“Haha. Thodi badatamizi stadium mein or uska reaction. Baaki u know me manage to hum hi karte hai. Lots of love brother,” Irfan responded to Akhtar’s tweet.
