Malala Just Threw Shade At India At The World Cup Opening Ceremony And The Competition Is On

By Biya Haq | 30 May, 2019

LOL, didn’t see that coming but glad it came.

Malala threw shade at the Indian cricket team at the ICC opening ceremony today and honestly, it was pretty epic.


Lol, okay so we all know Malala Yousafzai as the World’s youngest Nobel Peace Prize recipient, humanitarian, an activist for women’s education and overall badass. What we DIDN’T KNOW, was that the girl can trash talk.

Malala took part in a 60-second ‘gully’ challenge during the ceremony in Buckingham Palace after which she was interviewed as a representative of Pakistan. During that interview, Malala said that she was happy with Pakistan’s performance and though they came in seventh place, “India came last!”


And before anyone gets offended, this is Malala we are talking about. The sweet, kind and in no way malicious human we have come to know and love. It was obviously just a joke and a chance for friendly competition between the teams to begin.

Of course, everyone on Twitter pretty much collectively lost their mind at Malala’s remark.

And it’s been hilarious to watch.

Most people found the comments hilarious.

While others, not so much.

Regardless of opinion, the statement got a ton of laughs in Buckingham Palace and Malala even ended her interview with praises for the Indian team’s performance as well as appreciating their hard work.

It’s nice to see that amid tensions between the two countries and its history, we can take a break and play a bit of cricket to truly enjoy the nature and merriment of the game. The World Cup kicks off today with a match between England and South Africa and we can’t wait to see what other trash talk Malala has up her sleeve for the remainder of the tournament, hehe.

Have you seen the interview clip? Let us know what you think in the comments below. Love you!
