Pakistanis and their love for English
  1. ‘Mother from another brother’, Umar Akmal’s caption blunder on twitter leads to meme fest- Umar Akmal, who is playing for the Quetta Gladiators, was on board a flight to Karachi to join the 2020 Pakistan Super League when he snapped up a selfie with his team’s assistant coach and former Pakistani all-rounder Abdul Razzak. The 29-year-old ran the weirdest of captions that read: “Mother from another brother.”
  2. Shoaib Aktar’s incomprehensible tweet in English- Akhtar tweeted about having the honour of meeting Samina Baig – first Pakistani woman to conquer Mt. Everest – but his English confused everyone on the micro-blogging site. Aktar tweeted- “Honour of meeting the first lady of Pakistan who concerned Mount Everest with her share will proud of you Samina the whole country”.
  3. Fawad Chaudhary’s spelling mistake while mocking India’s failed Chandrayaan Moon mission- Fawad Chaudhary is well known for his tweets against India. While trolling India on its failed Moon mission Fawad got trolled himself by spelling “Satellite” incorrectly. He spelt “Sattelite” and the irony is that he is the minister of Science & Technology of Pakistan.
  4. Nervous Sarfaraz Ahamed- After a hugely impressive win against Sri Lanka, when the entire nation was going gung ho about their team’s remarkable rise, Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed was in a quandary. He had just pulled off an amazing victory and yet when he had to speak about it in front of the media, a nervous Sarfaraz was caught on the video asking whether all the reporters around him spoke only English. His words “Saray English Ke Hain kya (Everyone here is from English news?) gave trolls on social media a chance to revive the history of Pakistani cricketers stuttering when it came to speaking English. Perhaps because language is hugely dependent on ethos and historically, the majority of Indian players have had better exposure to a society conversing in English, which is not always the case in Pakistan.
