Meet Zainab Abbas, a Pakistan sports journalist who covered the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 as a sports anchor and analyst for Dunya News.
According to the Internet, a selfie with Zainab is the reason behind the team loses against Pakistan during the ODI matches.
The anchor took a selfie with the South African Captain AB De Villiers. She even captioned it as, “Told him to go easy on us tomorrow.” The right-handed took her seriously and got out on a duck against Pakistan. South Africa lost the match and Pakistan earned 2 crucial points.
Even South African speedster Kagiso Rabada couldn’t escape her curse. Well, he didn’t take any wickets and got out at 5.
Ahead of Pakistan’s virtual quarter-final against Sri Lanka, a lot of Pakistan fans requested her to take a selfie with Angelo Mathews and she obliged. She took a selfie with the Lankan skipper and the next day, his team got knocked out of the competition while the Men in Green progressed to the semi-finals.
Similarly, Zainab clicked selfies with the Indian cricketers and the rest is history.
Though these 3 selfies were clicked by the beautiful journalist ahead of India’s match against Sri Lanka, but still fans on social media are suggesting that a picture with Zainab Abbas was the reason behind the trio failing to fire in the final of Champion Trophy played at the Oval.
