Former Pakistan captain and PCB Director of Cricket Mohammad Hafeez brutally trolled Babar Azam-led Men in Green after failing to qualify for the Super 8 stage of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024.

Pakistan have been officially knocked out of the tournament after the Group A match between the USA and Ireland was washed out without a toss due to torrential rain in Florida on Friday, June 14. The outcome of the match was crucial for Pakistan to have a realistic chances of qualifying for the second round. With the USA securing their Super 8 after India from Group A, Men in Green's hopes to proceed beyond group stage diminished.

Mohammad Hafeez, who have been very critical of Pakistan's squad selection and their performances in the showpiece event, took to his X handle (formerly Twitter) to take a brutal at Babar Azam-led side.

Pakistan had a disappointing start to their campaign as they suffered a shocking defeat at the hands of the co-hosts USA in the Super Over. Men in Green's qualification for Super 8 stage dented after losing to arch-rivals India by just 6 runs in New York. Pakistan managed to bounce back with a win over Canada.

Despite winning against Canada, Pakistan's chances of qualifying for the Super 8 stage were hanging in balance as Ireland should defeat the USA. With the USA accumulating 5 points in 4 matches, it is highly impossible for Pakistan to finish in top 2 as they win maximum 4 points if they win against Ireland in their final group stage fixture against Ireland.

Pakistan were the champions of 2009 T20 World Cup

Pakistan are the former champions of the T20 World Cup, winning the prestigious trophy in 2009 by defeating Sri Lanka in the final under the leadership of Younis Khan.

Since 2009, the Men in Green never get hold of the coveted trophy despite reaching the final of the 2021 edition of the T20 World Cup, where they lost to the 2nd time champions England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

After winning the 2009 T20 World Cup, Pakistan reached the semifinal twice on the trot in 2010 and 2012, but lost to Australia and Sri Lanka, respectively. After nine years, in 2021, the Men in Green reached semifinal again but again lost to Australia, who went to clinch the prestigious trophy for the first time.

The ongoing T20 World Cup 2024 is the first time Pakistan failed to go beyond the group stage of the tournament. With already being out of the tournament, Babar Azam and his team will look to end their campaign on high when they take on Ireland in Florida on June 16, Sunday.
