In the second game of the ODI World Cup 2023, it was Pakistan against the Netherlands at Hyderabad.

The Dutch won the toss and asked Pakistan to bat first and they dominated the Men in Green quite well.

During the first 10 overs, things seemed quite in control with the Netherlands as they sent back three Pakistani batters.

Fakhar Zaman was the first to be dismissed by Logan van Beek who caught him off his own bowling.

Then came skipper Babar Azam who decided to increase his team’s score by batting well in today’s game.

But, he looked under a lot of pressure as he failed to live up to the expectations of his fans.

They looked quite disappointed with the performance of the Pakistani skipper and even showed anger.

Babar Azam was dismissed for just 5 runs by Colin Ackerman who got him caught out by Saqib Zulfiqar at short mid-wicket.

Meanwhile, the Dutch enjoyed their outing even more when they dismissed Imam-ul-Haq and made Pakistan reel at 38/3 in just 9.1 overs.

However, Mohammad Rizwan and Saud Shakeel came to the rescue and made a good partnership of 50 runs.

After the end of 18 overs, Pakistan was 90/3 with Rizwan and Shakeel playing handy knocks for the team.

For the Netherlands, Logan van Beek, Colin Ackerman, and Paul van Meekeren were the prominent wicket-takers.

Babar’s disappointing performance did not go down well with his fans and they trolled him massively on social media.

The world’s No.1 batter in the ICC rankings had to face the brutal comment made by fans on Twitter who made all sorts of memes about him.

However, Pakistan did manage to win their opening game against the Netherlands by 81 runs and have got a positive start to the tournament.
