can I just say that as much as I love Pakistan winning, I love the fact that both teams thanked each other, congratulated each other and showed genuine professionalism and showmanship and friendship beyond the political bullshit both teams are forced to endure. Kudos. As buzzed as I am by PK winning, this was a victory for BROWN cricket and I’m so freaking here for it
We got my country, Pakistan trending at number 1 for their awesome win against India then 3rd is one of my favorite YouTubers, the Game Grumps and then Paul McCartney at 7th cause he’s survived another year of this world’s bs
Today is a fucking great day
I love how collectively we’re all celebrating. Even with worries and struggles in life, the whole pakistan is lit right now; every city, every place and it’s just… so lovely. And idk I just live for these beautiful moments. I love you all so much.
the guy who took home 2 awards, hassan, had a translator present and spoke in urdu. it moved me to tears. the rest of our players speak weak english and often become the subject of mockery- do you not see the country suffering from post-colonial effects still? its absurd that we’re made to believe pride only comes with a fluency in the language that has nothing to do with our heritage whatsoever but is rather a reminder of the years of oppression our people had to go through. pakistan is battling on every front right now and it will not stop bleeding till we ourselves bleed green as a nation.
today was Historic, you’ve done us proud boys
Ok so I’m a big fan of “junkrat and satya are unlikely brainweird friends” but consider this: cricket.
They’re both from countries where cricket is HUGE and I imagine they both love the game.
They’re fine with matches between other countries, satya sitting primly with a glass of iced chai and junkrat sprawled over his big bfs lap halfway down a bag of chips.
But no one in overwatch dares set foot in the break room during India vs Australia matches.
lovely speech from Virat Kohli congratulating Pakistan on our win and commending our talent. It takes a big man, and a professional one, to be so supportive of an opposing team, especially with a sports rivalry as deep as India and Pakistan. Props. It’s a good day to be Desi today ☺️
