Moments after Pakistan's heartbreaking loss in the final of the T20 World Cup, against England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday, Mohammed Shami became the most trending name on Twitter. It was because of brutal ‘karma’ dig he had taken at Pakistan bowling legend Shoaib Akhtar's post after Pakistan's loss. However, fans on Twitter failed to understand the reason behind Shami's tweet, until a theory was posed a group of few on the social-media website on Sunday night as they shared a video of Akhtar's comment on the India pacer a few days back.

Akhtar did not write a word after Pakistan's five-wicket loss. He only posted an emoticon of broken heart on Twitter to express his feeling after the match. Moments later, Shami retweeted it writing, “Sorry brother, its call karma”, and a few emoticons of broken heart followed.

Fans were left asking the reason behind Shami's tweet until a video surfaced on Twitter showing Akhtar's comment on the India pacer after the team's World Cup exit.
