LAHORE – An Indian woman, Archana Mohan posted a heart-warming letter to Pakistan team in which she thanked the Pakistan team for winning the match and for “being an inspiration.”
Archana wrote as her Facebook status that she woke up the morning after the match expecting a “soul-wrenching hangover after [Pakistan] pulverized [her] team yesterday”, but instead, she found her family commending and appreciating the Pakistani team and players.
Her mother-in-law talked about Muhammad Amir, saying that he had got his redemption after a mistake in his youth. She said, “God works in mysterious ways.”
Mohan’s husband expressed his wish that India had players like Pakistan, calling them “cricketers in the purest form”.
Her father-in-law, who is an ex-serviceman, appreciated Fakhar Zaman, saying that he did what “a soldier does for his country”.
Her colleague, who had been involved in the social media war against Pakistan, confessed that he had watched “everything there was on YouTube about Sarfaraz Ahmed”, and said that the player is “something else.”
Mohan went on to write that she saw a post on her social media saying “Marry me, Babar Azam.”
Mohan said that it has been a tough few years for Pakistan recently because of lack of finances and reluctance of other teams to play in the country because of security reasons, but the win shows that “you can never write [Pakistan] off.”
