LONDON: Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai was targeted by some Indians on social media after she trolled India for coming in last in the 60 seconds challenge.
Malala is known for her sharp wit and excellent sense of humour. Every time the activist makes an appearance, her statements make headlines worldwide.
After she played the 60 seconds challenge with former Pakistan skipper Azhar Ali at the opening ceremon of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Malala was asked to say a few words.
When asked about the 60 seconds challenge, Malala said,”Well, it didn’t go well. We came in at number seven but India finished last so…,” she said, laughing.
It was obvious that Malala, representing Pakistan, made the comment in a light-hearted manner. However, some Indians on social media were angered by her comment.

However, some Pakistanis were quite elated at her cheeky comment. They couldn’t help but express their delight at the joke on India’s expense.

Malala also spoke about how sports united countries and had no boundaries. The education activist said that Sana Mir and other women cricketers in Pakistan were inspiring other girls to play cricket in Pakistan as well.
