Izzat mitti mein mil gayi: Twitter reacts hilariously to Afridi-Wasim photo after Pakistan's World T20 exit

Pakistan were handed their third defeat in four games after they lost to Australia by 21 runs at Mohali to get knocked out of the ongoing ICC World T20.

Australia finished on a score of 193 for four at the end of 20 overs, with skipper Steve Smith (61 not out) helping his side recover from an early scare along with Shane Watson (44 not out) and Glenn Maxwell (30).

The Pakistan batsmen, in reply, got off to good starts but were not able to cope with the mounting pressure throughout the course of their run-chase, nor could they keep up with the escalating required run-rate.

With Pakistan out of the tournament, the match in all probability turned out to be Afridi's swansong — unless he has another u-turn in store for his fans.

On Friday, following the match, Firstpost Sports asked Twitter users to come up with the wittiest captions on an image which shows Afridi standing alongside Pakistan pace legend Wasim Akram, staring down and appearing engaged in some kind of conversation.

There were several hilarious responses that followed, which are listed below:











While one wishes Afridi got a better farewell, especially after a glittering career spanning two decades, let us hope his second innings turns out to be an equally joyous one.
