The “mauka mauka” joke never gets old, particularly for Indians trying to provoke Pakistanis whenever we have lost to them. But sometimes, the joke doesn't work and the tables turn.
India may have secured another victory over Pakistan, but our very own Rawalpindi Express made sure not to let India get the ‘mauka'.
It all started when Indian opener Virender Sehwag tried to taunt former pacer Shoaib Akhtar on Twitter after India thrashed the Greenshirts 5-1 in the 2016 Sultan Azlan Shah Cup match.
Former Pakistani cricketers praise India for money: Sehwag
Sehwag tagged Shoaib in a picture of the scoreline captioned 'Sorry Shoaib, Pakistan also lost the ‘mauka’ in hockey'.
But Sehwag did not get the response he may have been looking for. Instead of responding with another taunt, Shoaib took the 'mauka' to be be the bigger person.
Whatever my brother Viru say he's forgiven..bcoz he has heart of gold and he doesn't mean bad but he's funny I'll give him that...— Shoaib Akhtar (@shoaib100mph) April 12, 2016
I was unable to see Shoaib Akhtar's ball on ODI debut, says Sehwag
Even Twitterati who were expecting a heated debate were left in awe of Shoaib’s reply.
@shoaib100mph this attitude of yours shows you were just not a best bowler of your time but a fantastic human being of all time. Cheers!— Mafaz (@mafaz009) April 12, 2016
