The fans of Pakistan and Zimbabwe teams are engaged in a heated Twitter debate as the two teams get ready for their important match in the 2022 T20 World Cup on Thursday (October 27) at the Optus Stadium in Perth.

Many are surprised to learn that the controversy on both sides has nothing to do with cricket and is instead a result of a bogus Mr Bean. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) post on their pre-match training session received a response from a Zimbabwean supporter, which sparked debates on both sides.

“As Zimbabweans we wont forgive you…you once gave us that Fraud Pak Bean instead of Mr Bean Rowan..we will settle the matter tomorrow just pray the rains will save you…#ZIMVSPAK,” a fan wrote on the micro-blogging site.


Later, it was discovered that a Pakistani guy named Asif Muhammed had visited Zimbabwe in 2016 and resembled the famous role portrayed by Rowan Atkinson. According to reports, the person who performed at roadshows, went to a comedy event and participated in the Harare Agricultural Show.

Speaking of the game, Pakistan will attempt to avenge their tragic last-ball loss to Team India in the opening encounter of the 2022 T20 World Cup on Sunday at the MCG. To keep their chances of making the semi-finals alive, the Men in Green are in desperate need of a victory.

Despite the Proteas being on the verge of winning in Hobart on Monday, Zimbabwe’s match against South Africa ended in a draw, giving them an unexpected point to open their campaign.
