When cricket made men cry !
Cricket has always produced moments that can remembered for ages and are part of a country’s history. This results in the fact that there is always a winner and a looser. The winning side is always remembered in history but the side ending in the wrong side is usually forgotten. Today we look at some of those moments which can not be forgotten by any cricket fan and are emotional to an extent.
The South Africans side was knocked out by New Zealand in the semi finals of the world cup and their tag of choking in the knockout stage remained there. This was an emotional moment for many players and this was evident from the photos that were captured.
Pakistan were also knocked out by the Aussies in the quarter final but Wahab Riaz won everyone’s heart by bowling a spell that is termed by many as the spell of the decade. When Pakistan lost, it was a huge mental blow to Pakistan cricketers and especially Wahab.
Pakistan’s greatest batsman Inzamam ul haq called it a day after Pakistan failed to qualify for the next stage of the 2007 world cup in West Indies. Pakistan last pool match versus Zimbabwe proved to be his last and when he was finally dismissed in his last innings, he made his way back to the pavilion with a heavy heart.
Bangladesh had a brilliant campaign in the 2012 Asia cup as they left behind both India and Sri Lanka to make it to the final against all odds but lost to Pakistan in a thrilling final match. This defeat was extremely difficult to digest for the Bangladesh players as they had never come this close to winning a big tournament.
Philip Hughes was a fantastic young batsman and he was just coming to terms with international cricket but his untimely death in a domestic match came as as hock to the cricket world. Michael Clarke who was close to the youngster found it extremely difficult to control himself in front of media when giving out the official announcemnet of his death.
