During the Australia-Pakistan match, a female spectator was seen in the stands roaring for her side, and Pakistani Twitter believes she is all-rounder Shadab Khan’s doppelgänger.
Pakistan was knocked out of the T20 World Cup after losing in the semi-finals to Australia last week, but the Pakistanis appear to have bounced back and are now focused on the fun aspect of cricket.

Pakistani cricket supporters responded to their team’s elimination from the Twenty20 World Cup with grace and laughter, after an unbroken run to the semi-finals had given the nation hope of winning the tournament for the second time.
On Thursday night, the team was eliminated after losing by five wickets to Australia in a nail-biting encounter in Dubai that was decided with an over to spare.

Prime Minister Imran Khan, a former captain and one of cricket’s all-time greats, summed up the national sentiment when he declared the team should be proud.
He wrote, “I know precisely how all of you are feeling right now, since I have experienced similar disappointments on the cricket pitch.”
“However, you should all be proud of the level of cricket you played and the humility with which you accepted your victories.”
After defeating New Zealand by 8 wickets in Dubai, Australia went on to win the T20 World Cup for the first time in the tournament’s history, becoming the first Australian side to do so.
