The result of the Pakistan Vs Zimbabwe game in the T20 World Cup 2022 yesterday was unexpected, not just because Zimbabwe was a comparatively lower-ranked team than Pakistan in T20 international cricket, but also because Perth was a venue that was supposed to suit the Pakistan bowlers more than Zimbabwe.

But, as it turned out, it was actually the Zimbabwean players who used the conditions better and pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the tournament by beating Pakistan, which had already suffered a defeat in their first group game in the World Cup against India.

After Zimbabwe completed this famous victory yesterday, a video surfaced on social media where people at Harare Cricket Club, one of the only two test grounds in Zimbabwe, could be seen dancing and jumping in joy.

Few Zimbabwe fans had gathered at Harare Sports Club to watch Pakistan Vs Zimbabwe

Cricket is not the most popular sport in Zimbabwe, but there is a certain section of fans in the country who love the sport and a few of those fans had gathered at Harare Sports Club to watch the Pakistan Vs Zimbabwe game together and have some fun.

However, they might also not be expecting their players to put on the kind of performance they actually did on a very bouncy Perth pitch. Zimbabwe’s game in T20 cricket has improved in recent times, but to beat Pakistan on a bouncy track despite the fast bowlers that Pakistan has, it’s a significant result for the African nation.

The video of Zimbabwe fans celebrating on social media, after Shaheen Afridi got run out off the last ball trying to take two runs, is going viral on social media, as the fans are hugging each other, jumping and dancing, and making a lot of noise.

With this victory, Zimbabwe has now given themselves a chance to qualify for the semi-final of the tournament, if they pull off a couple more results and a couple of results of the other teams go in their favor as well.
