in the 2023 World Cup to his “brothers and sisters in Gaza”
Pakistan defeated Sri Lanka in the Cricket World Cup 2023, with Muhammad Rizwan being the team’s standout player.Star player Mohammed Rizwan of Pakistan’s cricket team dedicated his side’s record-breaking victory over Sri Lanka in the 2023 Cricket World Cup to the “brothers and sisters in Gaza” in light of the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine. Pakistan achieved a record goal of 345 on Tuesday, but Abdullah Shafique hammered his first ODI century and Rizwan was the standout player for the team. Although Rizwan received a lot of appreciation for his knock, his opinions about the problem did not sit well with social media users. Some readers expressed their opinion that Indian cricket team players would never make such words, while others pointed out that he should focus on his game and not meddle in international politics.
“It was done in honour of our Gaza-based siblings. I’m glad I could help the victory. Shoutouts to Abdullah Shafique and Hassan Ali in particular for making things simpler. Well done, team. Many thanks to the Hyderabadi people for their wonderful hospitality and support all along the way
In response to Rizwan’s post on X, one person wrote, “Rizwan, try to focus on cricket.”
“How would they benefit in Gaza from a win or a century? Instead, you and the entire Pakistani squad ought to give Palestinians all of your World Cup earnings—match money, prizes, endorsements, etc. That would really help a lot. If not, this tweet is pure hogwash, a different user said.
Following the deadliest bombardment in Israel’s history, the death toll has risen to 1,200, while Gaza officials have confirmed that 900 Palestinians have died so far. The Israeli army also declared that it had found the corpses of some 1,500 Hamas agents inside of Israel.
Israel carried out overnight strikes on Hamas locations in Gaza, resulting in the deaths of at least 30 individuals. Fighter planes, according to the Israel Army, destroyed “advanced detection systems” that Hamas was using to identify military aircraft.
Every time Israel launches an unexpected bomb on a Palestinian house in the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian organisation has promised to carry out the execution of one hostage. The armed wing of Hamas has threatened Israel, saying, “Every targeting of our people without warning will be met with the execution of one of the civilian hostages.” There are 150 hostages in the group, including kids.
Following Israel’s complete blockade of the Gaza Strip, which severed the region’s water supply, the threat emerged. There are worries that this action could worsen the already terrible humanitarian situation.
