While there is uproar over the loss suffered by the men in green in the World T20 match on Saturday, not much is being said about the Pakistan women’s victory over India at the Feroz Shah Kotla Grounds earlier the same day in New Delhi.

Granted, it may take some time for women's cricket to gain as much hype as the men's one, our female side is sure making their own rules and setting their own precedents when it comes to the traditional Pakistan-India rivalry.

Women’s win fails to inspire Men in Green

A surprisingly positive piece of news to come out of the Pakistan, India women’s clash in the World T20 was the image of Pakistan bowler Anam Amin tying Indian batswoman Harmanpreet Kaur's shoelace during the match.

While fans in Pakistan are venting their anger at the men’s loss to India, fans across the border are celebrating their Kohli-led win against the greenshirts. However, this picture from the women's match in the same tournament gives both nations a reason to celebrate regardless of who ultimately won.

Shocking tactics lead to another chastening defeat

The Pakistan’s women team also celebrated their win by dedicating a message to parents of Pakistan female cricketers.

brar | 5 years ago | Reply @Irtiza: Whether the match was in grip or not you on, so congratulations and also learn to digest defeat it is a game not war , It terrible Pak channels after analysis the people who were claiming the green shirts will in that too former crickters were saying this team can never win and the most hurting comments again Afridi by Mubashar Lucman who was claiming I know he is going to settle in India like Adnan Sammi , no player plays to loose every one want to win but only one team wins. My best wishes for Pak men team to win all matches and reach final.A soul longing for peace from across the border.
