KARACHI – Enthusiastic cricket fans who just spent a day celebrating Pakistan’s historic win against India to snatch Champions Trophy swarmed outside captain Sarfaraz Ahmed’s house, early Tuesday.
As soon as television channels began flickering news of Sarfaraz Ahmed’s return to Karachi, preparations were started with his neighbourhood lit up and cleaned in a bid to give a rousing welcome to the triumphant captain.
The cricket-frenzy fans in the metropolis started gathering outside Sarfaraz’s house even before his arrival to catch a glimpse of the captain who earned the title for Pakistan for the first time in history.
Despite holy month of Ramazan being observed in Pakistan, the crowd continued to cheer for Pakistan and its cricket team.
Sarfaraz, who visibly looked happy, joined in with the crowd and chanted ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogans.

The captain himself sung ‘Mouqa Mouqa, once used to troll Pakistan by Indian media for repetitive defeats in the past.
