Yasir Shah has registered his name in history with a spectacular performance in the second test match against New Zealand. People are even saying he should be recognized as a legend for taking a historic number of wickets.
Pakistan has won the second test of the series thanks to Yasir Shah who has also been named as the ‘Man of the Match’.
That's a wrap of the Test match! Yasir Shah gets rid of Trent Boult with a ripping leg-break and how about that for a celebration!?!?? Pakistan win the second Test by an innings and 16 runs and square the series 1-1

Junaid Khan, fellow circketer, also happened to be one wishing Yasir and the rest of the team and he happened to call Yasir “soora“
But he also made sure he clarified that this word wasn’t what most people may have believed, it was actually the Pushto word for ‘red faced’, probably alluding to Yasir’s face turning red when he plays with a lot of focus.
Congratulations team Pakistan on winning the match. Well played @theharissohail and @babarazam258
Once again excellent bowling by Soora (meaning red face in pushto) @Shah64Y

People found this especially funny

Many even thanked Junaid because they would otherwise have thought he was learning new vocabulary from Khadim Rizvi
Haha dare khaa JUNAID lala for the translation, otherwise public will took it as Khadim Rizvi's soora

This is particularly funny that Junaid had to clarify because of the recent exchange between Babar Azam and Zainab Abbas
After Zainab mentioned how Mickey Arthur, the coach, was Babar’s “father” and people were congratulating him. Babar understood the words to be a diss at him and he snapped back at Zainab, providing a lot of fodder for social media, and also a bunch of comic relief.
