Three die over Pakistan defeat
Three Pakistanis died over the defeat of Pakistan team in semi finals. Pakistani newspapers gave more prominence to politics over cricket in today’s stories. In Karachi, a comedian died while participating in a TV show. Comedian Liaqat Soldier, 55, died to heart attack. He also performed in India. Two more Pakistanis also died of heart attacks after their team lost to India. Pakistan failed to achieve target of 261 at Mohali. Australia set 261 target for India in quarter finals and India chased easily. Five lives to Sachin Tendulkar made the difference. Even if Sachin had completed his 100th century with those lives, he could not have taken much pride in that 100. It is for the first time Sachin got so many lives in such an important match.
