Cricket World Cup fever is at all-time high and Pakistani fans are super stoked for the match on Sunday with rival team, India. Earlier this week, Pakistan played against Australia in which Australia won by 41 runs. Ahead and during the match, a Twitter thread started whereby a user asked wife of former cricketing star, Wasim Akram, Shaniera Akram who she would be supporting. Shaniera is originally from Australia.

“I think we all know the answer to this question, I’m in it for the long haul, Pakistan ZINDABAD all the way .........sorry Dad!” she responded in response to the tweet.

After Pakistan’s loss, Shaniera took to Twitter to boost the team’s morale, saying “It’s not over yet Pakistan. We need to fly the flag higher than ever before!”

In later tweets, Shaniera went on to explain that she was unsure of who she would be supporting ahead of the match. Here’s what she had to say: “A lot of comments surrounding my post yesterday & I completely understand that. To be honest I didn’t know who I was going to support but when I saw our boys in green come out, I felt pride and I’m apart of that now, so I knew then and there who I was supporting.”

Her tweet was followed by an explanation as to why she would be supporting the boys in green. She told her followers how she has spent time in Pakistan and how the country and its people have always been good to her. She also feels that Pakistan played a big role in shaping the person she is today.

“I was born and bred an Australian but I have come to live my life for and with the people of Pakistan. Pakistan has been good to me and plays a big part of who I am today. I love Australia and always will but I am with Pakistan all the way , Pakistan ZINDABAD,” she asserted.
