Netizens Blamed of losing Asia Cup Final Because of Rizwan

Mohammad Rizwan got 55 runs in 49 balls, but Pakistan missed the 171-run goal set by the Islanders by 23 runs.  Some people on the social networking site Twitter called Rizwan’s innings “selfish.”

Others, on the other hand, thought Rizwan’s innings were “criminal” given what the team needed.

Sri Lanka beat Pakistan and won their sixth Asia Cup by getting seven wickets from Pramod Madushan and Wanindu Hasaranga.

Pakistan had to get 171 runs to win, but they only got 147 runs before Madushan took four wickets and Hasaranga took three wickets in Dubai. Bhanuka Rajapaksa had smashed an unbeaten 71 to lift Sri Lanka to 170-6 from a precarious 58-5 after being put in to bat by Pakistan.
