Pak vs Ban – Pakistan Cricket Team have been in a winning mood and the mood is definitely infectious
From bagging a 4 streak match win in the T20 world cup 2021 to making it a 3 match clean sweep in the T20 Pak vs Ban series today, fans are tweeting their love, pride, and,…most of all the debut of the very new, very fast, new bowler on the block – Shahnawaz Dahani! Catch the tweets as we celebrate the win!
Team Pakistan just clean swept the T20 series with Bangladesh and Pakistani fans are over the moon, but of course!
“What a Match!!!
Congratulations Team Pakistan
well played Bangladesh”
Muhammad Rizwan is getting all the love as he bags Player of the Series, and the stats speak for themselves!
Another Player of the Series to Mohammad Rizwan 90 Runs and 7 Catches behind the Stumps
But the highlight of the day was fast bowler Shahnawaz Dahani’s international debut!
“Alhamdulillah, I am going to represent my country today. I am extremely happy and excited to play in green. All this happened due to prayers of my mother. Thank you everyone for loving me and supporting me, and Pray that I make my country proud”.
Yeah, if you’re not following him, now would be a good time, because …
His growing fanbase speaks for itself. But what really added the cherry on top was a debut with a wicket in his first game!
Shahnawaz Dahani was born in 1998 in Larkana, Pakistan.
Dahani’s inspiring story, from Larkana to the National Cricket team is one of hard work, hope and commitment to training. He sports an ever ready smile, whether carrying the refreshments for his team or coming in to bowl in a T20 game! Fans had been rooting for his debut and today, they got it finally (in the 3rd and final Pak vs Ban T20), along with a wicket! Shahnawaz Dahani is a right arm, medium fast bowler and a right handed batsman.
Here he is, receiving his debut cap from Sarfraz Ahmed as the team cheers him on!
Dahani started his career by being hit for a four on the first ball he bowled. But then he got even on the fourth ball, getting the wicket of Najmul Hossain Shanto with a near yorker.
Sarfraz Ahmed was over the moon with the wicket!
Human rights lawyer & activist Jiban Nasir tweeted his elation & applause: “ShahnawazDahani‘s happiness is contagious. The guy just makes your day with his smile. May he continue to find success at all levels.”
If you didn’t catch it then, get it here! The moment of triumph in all its glory!
“Shahnawaz Dahani picks his first international T20I wicket. An unforgettable moment for him. What a start by The Larkana Express #dhani..”

And if you want to know more about this 23 year old ‘rising up the ranks’ player. He carries 5 pairs of spike shoes when on tour, a pair of trainers, his protein powder, electronic roller to get rid of muscle cramps, wrist bands to train in the room, when covid restrictions are strict, and most treasured possession of all – his Team Pakistan Helmet for which he says with pride in his eyes- Jaan Bhi haazir Hai!
Isn’t that just love!
On the other end of the spectrum, Pak vs Ban had some moments though, and this one, fans would like to forget!
“This Hurts More Than Breakup”
Yeah, we bet it does!
We do stretch it to the end though! That’s just how we like to do things as a team!
And then, for the pure love of cricket – Pakistani Virat Kohli fans still dreaming of 2025!
“Imagine Virat Kohli Hitting a ton at the ‘National stadium, Karachi in 2025 CT, a sight , me and almost every Pakistani would Love to see”
While some celebrated the win off the field!
“Long Live Iron Brotherhood”
The Inevitable Team Selfie For Sweet Memories
But THIS tweet says it all! Pakistan will win, but in signature Pakistani style … but why??? Question fans!
Everything is temporary but mini heart attack is permanent. literally in the last over it feels like that I’m in the ICU
What a match! Pakistani team you nailed it! 3-0 Keep going
And that’s all folks, till we play again!
