The Pakistan cricket team suffered a humiliating 8-wicket loss over Afghanistan in their fifth ODI World Cup 2023 game on October 23 at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Notably, Babar Azam and Co. have suffered three back-to-back losses over India, Australia, and Afghanistan in the ongoing marquee event and currently place themselves in the fifth spot in the points table after having two wins and three losses out of five games they have played so far in the ongoing event.

Following their great loss against the Shahidi-led Afghan side, former England skipper Michael Vaughan took a dig at Pakistan's cricket team after the game. The legendary cricketer took to Twitter and wrote that he presumed that Pakistan's 'Dil Dil Pakistani' song wasn't played in Chennai.

Notably, Michael Vaughan's remark came after legendary cricketer Micky Arthur made startling comments about their loss over arch-rivals India on October 14 during their third game of the marquee event.

"I presume ‘Dil Dil’ Pakistan wasn’t played in Chennai today." Michael Vaughan wrote on X.

I didn't hear Dil Dil Pakistan coming through the microphones too often tonight: Mickey Arthur

Earlier, Pakistan's team director, Mickey Arthur, made some baseless allegations against Team India and the Indian Cricket Board after their defeat against the hosts on October 14 at the iconic Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium in Ahmedabad. Notably, the former South African cricketer felt that the clash between India and Pakistan was a bilateral series over any major tournaments owing to the partial crowd in the stadium.

The former top-order batsman lashes out, saying he couldn't hear any of Pakistan's songs during the game, while the rest were Indian songs. "It didn't seem like an global event to be brutally honest. It seemed like a bilateral series; it seemed like a Indian event. I didn't hear Dil Dil Pakistan coming through the microphones too often tonight," Mickey Arthur said during the press conference.
