Asia Cup 2022: 'Raw emotions and celebrations' from Pakistan players after their win over India
Pakistan chased down India's daunting 181/7 to kick-off their Super 4s campaign for the Asia Cup 2022 with a bang.
Pakistan players were seen expressing their "raw emotions" and celebrating the Super 4s stage victory against India in Dubai on Sunday (September 4) for the Asia Cup 2022.
The Babar Azam led side had a split of emotions and went up and down with their reactions for a while seeing the on-field happenings from inside the dressing room.
They finally breathe a sigh of relief and stood jubilant in the shed when Pakistan reached home on the penultimate ball of the innings, chasing down India's massive 181/7 in good batting conditions under pressure.
In a clip posted over their official Twitter handle, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) unveiled how the likes of Babar and his younger teammates Shadab Khan and Naseem Shah led the celebrations for the night inside the team dressing room.
The clip is of the final three-minute duration of the keenly followed thriller in the Middle East, where Pakistan cricketers were seen feeling the nerves and the tension that their teammates Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah felt on the ground, before erupting in a bundle of sheer joy.
The bandwagon was led by skipper Babar Azam, the glee on whose face was there for everyone to see as he stood beside the glass shield that covered the space just before the boundary cushion.
Behind him, as witnessed in the clip, were Shadab, Naseem, Mohammad Hasnain, Haris Rauf and members of the coaching staff, keenly awaiting the final result.
