As India were trying on Saturday to recover from an insulting defeat in a Test match against Australia, former Pakistani pacer Shoaib Akhtar and former actress Veena Malik came out to rub salt into their injuries.

According to AFP, “A devastated India crashed to their lowest ever score of 36 on Saturday as Australia ran riot to win the opening Test in Adelaide by eight wickets after Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins produced a bowling masterclass.

“India started the third day of the pink-ball Test on nine for one and with a 62-run lead, looking to build a competitive second innings total for the hosts to chase. But their hopes were left in tatters by a wicket with bounce and deviation as Hazlewood took 5-8, including his 200th Test wicket, and Cummins 4-21. Wicketkeeper Tim Paine claimed five catches as the bowlers found the edge.”

In a blistering attack, Shoaib wrote on Twitter, “I woke up & saw the score 369. I couldn’t believe it. Then I washed my eyes and saw the score 36/9. I couldn’t believe it either & went back to sleep.”

He didn’t stop here and wrote, “This will not be forgotten easily. Must come back very strongly from here. Theek thaak phentii pari hai.”

Although it’s not her cup of tea, but Pakistani film actor Veena Malik wasted no time to take advantage of Indian team’s helplessness against the Australians. She compared Australia’s thrashing of 11 players of the Indian cricket team to Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s thrashing of 11 opposition political parties, which are currently trying to topple the federal government led by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

Zainab Abbas, presenter for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Pakistan Super League, T10, Cricingif, Ten Sports & Sony, occasional writer for Dawn and former employee of Dunya News, was totally in a state of disbelief after learning about the Indian cricket team’s humiliating defeat against Australia.

Zainab took to Twitter to express her feelings in these words, “36 all out? Am I reading this right? What happened overnight?! Absolute Disbelief #AUSvIND”
