When it comes to cricket, each match between India and Pakistan, is a memorable one. In another such incident at the 2022 ICC Women’s World Cup, the Indian women’s cricket team had a marvelous win against Pakistan.
However, it was the team’s selfie with Pakistani cricketer Bismah Maroof and her daughter, Fatima that took Twitter by storm, after ICC tweeting the image. This truly sends the message “Make sports, not war.”
After ICC’s post, Twitter was soon flooded with other photos and videos of the team with the skipper’s baby and we’re loving it.
When lil’ Fatima grows up, she will be shown this picture and the one when entering the ground, and hopefully she will be told that she lit up so many phone-screens and faces across the border, and the world too#CWC22 https://t.co/W3XafEnSzv— Shirshendu Roy (@Shirsh9) March 7, 2022

Ultimately, this is what the #sport is all about. Playing it tough out there, but pre & post-match, having mutual respect as well as sharing a laugh or two. #Sportsmanship https://t.co/lpPzDrXsWU— Anubhav Srivastava (@imAnubhavS) March 6, 2022

These girls have achieved more with this selfie, than summit talks and diplomats in suits ever will.— The Cricketing Life (@lifecricketing) March 6, 2022
Well done 👍🏼 https://t.co/6VTDcKmSYJ
The team won by 107 runs in their opening match at Bay Oval, New Zealand, on 6 February 2022. With this win, the Indian women’s cricket team maintains its winning streak against Pakistan.
In 2017, India lost to England in the finals. This will be the last World Cup for captain, Mithali Raj, and ace bowler Jhulan Goswami.
I hope the haters are able to digest all the love that this one image is serving them.
