The nail-biting match between Pakistan and Zimbabwe has taken a political turn after the two country’s presidents got involved into a funny banter. Actually, it was Zimbabwe’s president who started the dialogue and within hours it spread like wild-fire in the open.

Let us start from the beginning!!

On Thursday, in the match between Zimbabwe and Pakistan, something happened that people least expected. Zimbabwe defeated the mighty Pakistan team by 1 run. In the last minute, it was 3 runs that Pakistan needed from 1 ball to win and 2 runs to make a draw but when the ball got delivered, the last two batsmen trying taking two runs could not succeed and lost the match by one run remaining.

What was then? Time for celebration folks!!

For Zimbabweans it was a huge win. Now it was time for more twists to take place, and that twist was directly from the Zimbabwean president, who took the win to his official twitter handle tweeted, congratulating his team and also taking a jibe at Pakistan for a half-hearted favor they showcased to their country in 2016. First have a look at what president of Zimbabwe, EmmersonDambudzo Mnangagwa said,

“What a win for Zimbabwe! Congratulations to the Chevrons.

Next time, send the real Mr Bean…#PakvsZim”

Well, for those who did not understand the point made, is a story back from 2016, when the Pakistan sent doppelganger of the famous Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean) to Zimbabwe as showcasing him the real one, which obviously left the Chevrons infuriated. 

Therefore, in a match like we just spoke about became the ultimate platform for the Zimbabwean’s this time to take a sly jibe at Pakistan.

The sarcastically but hilariously taken jibe from the president of Zimbabwe was well received by not only the president of Pakistan, Shehbaz Sharif, but also by the people too. Look at how Shehbaz Sharif responded,

“We may not have the real Mr. Bean, but we have real cricketing spirit .. and we Pakistanis have a funny habit of bouncing back :)”

“Mr. President: Congratulations. Your team played really well today”

Undoubtedly, the match between the two was an interesting one which every cricket lover enjoyed.
