New Delhi, June 17: After torturing the Pakistani team with his bat on field, India's Hitman Rohit Sharma went a step further off the field by rubbing salt on Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed's injury. The moment came after the marquee clash in Manchester where India humiliated Pakistan for the seventh time in World Cup.
Addressing the press conference after the match, Rohit Sharma was at his wittiest best. A Pakistan journalist asked Rohit what was his advice for the Pak team, which is in a major crisis. Hitman's response was quick and one that made the jounalists laugh. "Jab main Pakistan team ka coach banoonga tab jawab doonga (I will answer when I become Pakistan coach)," quipped Rohit.

Pakistan now need to win all remaining four matches to get a place in semi-final.
Irked at the defeat, Pakistan twitterati has gone hammer and tongs against its team with jokes, memes, GIFs and one-liners.
The moment the rain-hit match at the Old Trafford in Manchester on Sunday went into final overs, users from Pakistan began bashing their team, although keeping the humour intact -- be it Ahmed's yawning face on the field or Shoaib Malik being dismissed for a duck.
"Don't call me a traitor, but look at the Indian players, they look like proper athletes, our players look like they've eaten two plates of waris nihari with feeqay ki lassi and benazir kulfa, all at once," tweeted one user. The tweet immediately went viral and Indian users started retweeting it.
Another tweet from across the border read: "Dear India thora hath hola rakhen... Hamary Sarfraz ne ro dena ha abi."
As the skipper returned to the pavilion after scoring just 12 runs in 30 balls, a user posted: "When I die I want Sarfaraz to lower me into my grave so he can let me down one last time".
"Aree humari toh team hai, toh hum dekh rahe hai. Apko kitna aur time pass karna hai inn nikammo ko haarta dekh ke," a user wrote to an Indian follower.
Aleena from Lahore wrote: "Na partition hoti na hum zaleel ho rahe hote."
"Dollar ka rate aur India k runs control karna hamare bas ki baat nahi," one Twitter user posted from Pakistan.
Knowing well that Pakistan is frantically looking for an economic bailout, one user tweeted: "India to aisay dho rahi hai jesay IMF se qarza nahin in se letay hn hum".
