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.

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.

Even Twitterati who were expecting a heated debate were left in awe of Shoaib’s reply.

Asad | 5 years ago | Reply @jay: Pakistan is surely way behind India when it come to Economy, its obvious because Pakistan is a small country. But we are still good in numbers when it comes to sports and mind you we are a small country :)
