Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry expressed his happiness over New Zealand’s defeat against Pakistan. In a video message shared on social media, the minister can be heard saying, “Asal ghussa toh New Zealand par tha, yeh India raaste mein aagaya.”

Pakistan defeated New Zealand by 5 wickets in the Super 12 fixture of the ongoing T20 World Cup in a nerve-wracking match. Pakistanis were looking forward to the match because in September, the New Zealand team had unilaterally postponed the series with Pakistan minutes before the first match was scheduled to start at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, a move that had shocked fans and officials.
