After beating Namibia, Pakistan cricketers visited their dressing room to personally congratulate the team for putting up an impressive show.
In a video shared by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on its official Twitter handle, players can be seen inside the Namibia dressing room indulging in a warm interaction.
“#SpiritofCricket – Pakistan team visited the Namibia dressing room to congratulate them on their journey in the @T20WorldCup,” the video description said.
“Congratulations on qualifying and playing this [brand of] cricket. You have done a great job and played some brilliant cricket. We see a very, very good future in you. All the best to you guys,” said a PCB official congratulating the Namibia team before the players of both sides shook hands and clicked a few photographs with each other.
Playing their maiden T20I tournament, Namibia displayed an impressive brand of cricket to first sail through the qualifiers and reach into the Super12 before managing to defeat Scotland in the main draw to register their first-ever World Cup victory. While they have lost the other two group stage encounters so far, against Afghanistan and Pakistan, they are yet to face India and New Zealand.
Former South Africa pacer Albie Morkel, who is currently the Assistant Coach of Namibia, thanked Pakistan for their thoughtful gesture. “Thank you @TheRealPC for making some time to visit our change room. The @CricketNamibia1 guys really enjoyed playing against you,” Morkel’s tweeted.
