‘Cheap Shot’: England’s Barmy Army Pokes Fun at Pakistani Fans After Series Win

Talk about rubbing salt into our wounds.

England’s Barmy Army trolled Pakistan fans after the visitors defeated the home side in the final Test match of the three-match series in Karachi on Tuesday.

The UK supporter’s Twitter handle shared a picture of its local passenger bus, and asked Pakistani to spot something odd about the picture.

As it turns out, the Barmy Army placed a customized number plate on the bus that read:

ENG 3-0

It seems like UK’s gora supporters have taken advantage of Pakistani awaam‘s open-hearted hospitality and decided to rub salt in their wounds.

However, despite the cheap shot, as well as several conniving Indian fans joining in on the joke, Pakistani supporters remained hospitable on social media and congratulated the English side on their series victory.


The Ben Stokes-led England clinched the series after they comfortably won the Karachi Test on Tuesday. It is the first time in the last 22 years that they won a Test series on Pakistani soil.

The Barmy Army is a company that provides tickets and arranges touring parties for some of its members to follow and support the English cricket team in the UK and abroad.

It started out as an informal organization but later developed into a company registered in England and Wales.

The Barmy Army’s supporters enjoyed their stay in Pakistan and even won over a few fans when they sang Dil Dil Pakistan in the stands during the first Test match in Rawalpindi.
