Pakistan are going to replace West Indies as the second finalist of World T20 and take the field against England at the Eden Gardens on Sunday. Shocking right? This is what a media channel in Pakistan has been telecasting on Friday to fool their audience on April 1st, which is the April Fools’ day.
It may be noted that all throughout the day, shocking news about different sportspersons are flooding the cyber space, with an objective to trick the readers on April Fools’ day. However, this Pakistan channel went a step ahead as their anchors constantly repeated that ICC had given permission to the Pakistan Cri`cket Team to take West Indies’ place in the World T20 final.
It may sound funny but there’s serious doubt whether the Pak supporters, disheartened by their team’s early exit from the tournament, will be amused by this act.
