"Aap aur hum mein yehi fark hai" - Irfan Pathan gives befitting response to Pakistan PM's trolling tweet on Team India
After a horrible exit from the T20 World Cup, the dream of winning the T20 World Cup ended in the worst way possible. This didn't go well with the many former Indian players and fans, while it also gave some across the border a chance to make fun of Team India.
One such instance happened when Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif took a dig at India's World Cup exit after the 10-wicket loss at the hands of England at the Adelaide Oval. This win helped England advance to the final to play Pakistan on Sunday at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Paksitan PM tweeted after India's 10-wicket loss, and it went viral on the internet within a short period of time. It didn't come well to many Indian fans, and on Saturday, former Indian all-rounder and 2007 World Cup-winning member Irfan Pathan responded to it.
It happened when England crushed India in the second semi-final by 10 wickets, and India were simply outplayed by the way the English team played in all three departments. Jos Buttler and Alex Hales added an unbeaten opening stand of 170 runs and chased down the target in 16 overs. Both batters also scored in the 80s.
Just after that, Pakistan's PM shared a post from his official Twitter account, "So, this Sunday, it’s: 152/0 vs 170/0 #T20WorldCup," which indicates the two 10-wicket losses India had in the T20 World Cup. Last time, it was Pakistan that defeated India by 10 wickets chasing 152, and now it was England.

On Saturday, Irfan responded to the tweet and replied, "Aap mein or hum mein fark yehi hai. Hum apni khushi se khush or aap dusre ke taklif se. Is liye khud ke mulk ko behtar karne pe dhyan nahi hai (This is the difference between you and us. We are happy with ourselves, you look for happiness when others are in trouble. That is why you are not concentrating on your country's well-being)."

Earlier in the day, during the pre-match press conference, Pakistan captain Babar Azam was asked about the PM tweet and if such social media things put extra pressure on the players. However, he replied that he was not aware of such a tweet and that there was no such pressure.
