The Men in Green are now the Men in Hats as they turned cowboys for the promos of the T20 Cricket World Cup!

Promo photos rarely catch our eye, but then we saw the cowboy themed pictures and knew we couldn’t let it slide. Also, please excuse our pun in the excerpt, we couldn’t help ourselves.

Obviously the ICC had a fun video to share too, complete with old western music and a lot of old school swagger. Also, can we just say, Iftikhar was made to be a cowboy.

Erin Holland agrees with us — she wants him to be in the next season of Yellowstone, our favourite modern-day cowboy drama.

Why the cowboy theme, you may ask? Well, several of the matches are being held in Texas! We don’t know why no other teams have done similarly themed photoshoots, but they have done some dance challenges. Guess not everyone was made for the cowboy life — including captain Babar Azam who was MIA from the fun photoshoot!

X (formerly Twitter) was abuzz when the pictures from the photoshoot dropped.

People were as convinced as we are about how legit the Pakistan team looks as cowboys.

Some team members may have taken more convincing to play cowboys…

But they got in the spirit of things.

The Pakistan team is there for a good time — and hopefully a long time too!

Us when we get our US visas. Yeehaw!

We think so too!

We’re now eagerly awaiting June 9, when Pakistan takes on India in New York. That’ll be a real showdown.

Simply great and beautiful, this team can make a difference in this T20 World Cup 2024.

The Pakistani team has better cosplaying skills than cricketing skills.

Really liked the photoshoots

Whenever there is politcal turmoil at home, team never does well, as it is demoralized.

Need to show their skills inside the ground. Till now no good performance enough to win against good teams. Old retired players are now playing and merit young players are left out!!!

While the images are flattering, the question is why emulate the host country's head gear ? Does the English team when it visits India or Pakistan don turbans for a photo shoot ? No they do not !

Useless pursuits. Should concentrate more on their jobs. They are professionals, not school boys on a summer trip.

I hope we don't start with the "unpredictable" mantra again. After getting pasted by both NZ and England, I don't have much hope in this team "unpredictable". A good team should NOT be "unpredictable". It should be consistent.
Please Take care of them! Jun 05, 2024 10:15am
Most of them go just for vacationing. Get ready to hear excuses like "Inshallah we will do better next time", " It is somebody else's fault", Watch Selectors resign and come back after 2 years.
