In a shocking incident in Pakistan, a security guard shot a young YouTuber who was filming him after the India vs Pakistan match in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. Fans from both nations are quite invested in cricket, and when the match is between the arch-rivals, the interest increases. This time, from breaking TVs to shooting another person, Pakistan has gone a bit too far.

The heartbreaking incident occurred in Karachi, where a YouTuber called Saad Ahmed went to the city’s mobile market to record a vlog of the build-up of the India vs. Pakistan match in New York. Moreover, after speaking with many people about the face-off, he met a security guard who wasn’t interested in featuring in the video. After being asked repeatedly, the guard lost his cool and shot the YouTuber. 

Talking to Pakistan's Geo TV, Saad's friend said before shooting the video, he had called him to tell him he was going to the mobile market to record. His friend also said that Saad was the family's sole breadwinner, and now the family will suffer. While he was rushed to the hospital after being shot, he was declared dead on arrival. After the incident, the security guard was arrested by the police. 

India vs Pakistan match turned into a last-ball thriller

In the 19th match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, India crushed Pakistan's batting attack and won the game by six runs. Rishabh Pant's batting saved the day for India, as none of the batters went past 10 runs except Pant, Axar Patel, and Rohit Sharma. Pakistan's bowling was fantastic as they dominated the batters like Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav. 

However, India's bowling attack, which included Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya, destroyed Pakistan's batting attack, as they couldn't even score 120 runs in the second innings. The batters played a disappointing match and hence lost the match by six runs.
