Waqar Younis, Shoaib Malik's Dance Moves Go Viral after Pakistan Storm into T20 World Cup Final

A dominant Pakistan thrashed New Zealand by 7 wickets in the first semi-final encounter on Wednesday following which massive celebrations were witnessed at the SCG and on Twitter. Cricket greats Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Misbah-ul-Haq, and Shoaib Malik, who have mostly been critical of their side owing to Pakistan’s poor display in the first half of the T20 World Cup, couldn’t help but break into a jig after Babar Azam’s men stormed into the finals of the coveted tournament.

Once down and out, resilient Pakistan silenced their critics and scripted a historic comeback owing to all-around quality cricket shown by them despite losing their opening matches to India and Zimbabwe respectively.

Pakistan openers Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan announced their arrival at the semi-final stage against New Zealand with a bang as the celebrated duo fired in unison in a century stand with each hitting a half-century to set the base for a seven-wicket win. Babar exited after hitting 53 while Rizwan made 57 as Pakistan chased down 153 in 19.1 overs to complete a remarkable turnaround.

However, Pakistan made a superb start with their opening pair adding 105 runs. Mohammad Haris then struck 30 off 26 to all but end New Zealand’s hopes.
