Pakistan’s dismal show against India on Sunday has forced various visiting families to alter their travel dates and return home earlier than planned.

A good number of Pakistanis were seen queuing outside the Sri Lankan Airlines office at World Trade Centre of Colombo and cutting short their stay on the island, as they were no longer interested in watching the remaining matches of the tournament. It seemed that most of them flew in just for the battle of the arch-rivals that India coasted home in. Airline officials also confirmed that a lot of requests have been received by Pakistani travellers who wanted to change their return date to something earlier than planned.

Lets be positive as we still have a game in our hands and still we can prove to be the best team in the world, but for that we have to plan accordingly. Everyone has to play his part which includes, captainship, batting, balling and specially fielding to its best. Wish you good Luck Pakistan, Allah will help us Inshallah, ameen.
