With the defeat against Zimbabwe, the chances of the Pakistani team reaching the semi-finals are almost over. In such a situation, after the end of the match, Zimbabwe President Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa took the fun of Pakistan through a tweet.

What was it then? Even the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Shehbaz Sharif, did not stay. He has also retaliated through a tweet. Now, what is the whole matter? We tell you that.

Zimbabwe President Made A Joke

In this tweet, Emerson wrote, Great victory for Zimbabwe. Congratulations to the team. Next time send the real Mr Bean.

We will tell you further why the mention of Mr Bean came here and what it has to do with both countries. But before that, know what the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Shahbaz Sharif gave.

He tweeted and wrote, We may not have the real Mr Bean, but we have the real cricketing spirit. And we Pakistanis have a funny habit of making a comeback. Mr President, congratulations to you. Your team played well today.

You must wonder where Mr Bean came from in Pakistan’s defeat and Zimbabwe’s victory—not bothered. We tell. Two-three days ago, a person named Ngugi Chasura fired shells at Pakistan through social media. Who is the reason for the irritation? Mr Bean.

Ngugi claimed that in 2016 there was an incident in Zimbabwe. Its name was Agriculture Show. A Pakistani company was also a participant in this. In this event, the real Mr Bean, i.e. Rowan Atkinson, was to come as a guest, but the Pakistanis sent their fake Mr Bean there.

This angered the person so much that after six years of the event, he tweeted and talked about taking revenge. Ngugi, while replying to the Pakistan Cricket Board’s tweet two days before the match.

He Wrote, We will never forgive you as a Zimbabwean citizen. Once, you showed a fake Pak Bean instead of the real Mr Bean. We will look into this matter on the field tomorrow. Pray that tomorrow the rain will save you.’
