Finally the long, long wait of Pakistan for a Test victory over Australia came to an end as Pakistan overwhelmed mighty Australia by three wickets to achieve historic victory at Headingley ground on Saturday.
Cricket fans all across the country took to the streets in Pakistan to celebrate their side’s first Test victory over Australia in 15 years, after a tense fourth-day finish at Headingley.

Salman Butt is being praised by all for as he made a winning start as captain and became the eighth Pakistani captain after Fazal Mahmood, Mushtaq Mohammed, Javed Miandad, Waqar Younis, Salim Malik, Ramiz Raja and Mohammed Yousuf to win his maiden Test match as captain.

“It was a bit nerve-wracking, when you have this added responsibility,” Salman Butt told reporters. “You tend to think more, thank God it went positively and we won.”
It means a lot, it’s a new beginning for Pakistan” he said.

Pakistan, set 180 to win, lost four wickets for 40 runs before finishing on 180 for seven and a three-wicket win as they levelled this two-Test series at 1-1.

21st June 09 is undoubtedly one of the happiest and biggest days of my life! And not only mine in fact the 17crore Pakistanis nation plus the Pakistanis living all over the globe.. 🙂
Yesss! We did it! Pakistani cricket team won the T20 World Cup final against Sri Lanka last night, making us all so proud of our team – one great achievement for Pakistan cricket in the last 17 years.
And the feeling is so damn sweet and great that no words can describe it perhaps.. 🙂
I am just too happy to write..
We played some brilliant cricket on the ground of Lords and alongwith the prayers of the nation our team came out victorious! And the team will be bringing the cup home tomorrow. This is such a feel-good factor that it spread happiness and joy all over the country- including the parts in distress and misery. I hope we will come out victorious on the home ground too defeating enemies.
InshAllahh!!
Pakistan Zindabaaaaad! 🙂
