Fan Following


The Pakistani cricket team gets huge support from Pakistani nationals wherever it plays a game of cricket. The fans of the teams are very passionate and expect nothing less than the best from their team. This high level of expectation sometimes leads to harsh reactions from the fans when the team fails to perform up to their expectations, especially against their bitter rivals India.
