It seems that Pakistan Cricket Team has found a secret weapon. And it is not some batsman or bowler, but a sports journalist and presenter who happens to be covering the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. Meet Zainab Abbas, the girl who seems to have the strange “manhoos selfie” power.
It all started when Zainab Abbas took a selfie with the South African superstar AB De Villiers before the Pakistan vs South Africa match. She posted this picture on her Facebook page.
Guess what happened in the match? AB De Villiers got out on zero against Pakistan. And also, Pakistan won the match.
A Hero is Born…
It was at that moment when Pakistanis started to realise they had a new superhero with the secret selfie weapon.

What happened next, made her famous in India as well. She took a selfie with Virat Kohli, and the Indian captain got out on zero against Sri Lanka. And of course, India lost the match as well.
People started calling her a hero.

Indians are already scared…
Starting a petition to ensure @ZAbbasOfficial stays away from all the other Indian batsmen during ICC events.

Pakistanis are already demanding her to take a selfie with the next rival team.
Please. Next selfie with Angelo Mathews. Must get this done before Pakistan vs Srilanka.
