In a playful yet pointed gesture, renowned Pakistani TikToker Hareem Shah took a jab at Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi following India’s loss in the ICC World Cup final.
The high-stakes match concluded with Australia emerging victorious, clinching their sixth cricket world championship title after defeating India by 6 wickets at the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium in Ahmedabad.
In response to the defeat, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to the social networking platform X (formerly Twitter) to share a message of encouragement for the Indian team. Modi expressed, “You played with great passion throughout the World Cup, the nation is very proud of you, I and the whole of India always stand with you.”
However, Hareem Shah, known for her wit and humor, couldn’t resist adding a touch of satire. In response to Modi’s post, she playfully remarked, “Modi G, itni cheating kr k bhi har gye,” accompanied by a laughing emoji.

Ms Shah took to her official X account to share an image featuring Indian cricketer Virat Kohli lying face down on the ground in disappointment after the final loss, while Anushka Sharma sat nearby with a shocked expression. In her post, the TikToker expressed gratitude on behalf of the Pakistani nation to Australia for “teaching shameless India a lesson for life.”
This unexpected turn of events marked India’s first defeat in the tournament. Despite winning all nine league matches in the World Cup and securing a spot in the semi-finals, the Indian team faced a disappointing outcome in the final as the Kangaroos dashed their hopes.
The shocking defeat has left fans, as well as the Indian team, in disbelief, emphasizing the unpredictable nature of the sport and the emotional rollercoaster experienced by cricket enthusiasts around the world.
