When last AUS vs PAK clash at World Cup witnessed cricket’s most iconic meme

Angry Meme Guy became famous after Asif Ali dropped David Warner during Australia vs Pakistan match at 2019 World Cup.

There are some moments in sports that are etched in fans’ memories forever. Cricket has had its moments too, and the last World Cup was replete with such instances. The MS Dhoni run-out against New Zealand in the semifinal, or Ben Stokes’ accidental six runs in the final, are classic examples. But out of those too, the one incident that got the most attention was Pakistan’s ‘Angry Meme Guy’, whose expression at the drop of the catch is unforgettable.

What Happened During AUS vs PAK Encounter

The ‘Angry Meme Guy’ happened during the Australia vs Pakistan match at the 2019 World Cup in Taunton. The former beat the Asian side in a one-sided affair. Batting first, the Aussies scored a massive 107 runs to take the score to 307. What was noteworthy was Pakistan’s poor fielding. On one occasion, Asif Ali dropped Warner, which even cost them dear, as they lost the match by 41 runs. That was when a Pakistani spectator was left mighty disappointed, and at that very moment, ‘Angry Meme Guy’ became viral.

Who is ‘Angry Meme Guy’?

As per various media reports, his real name is Muhammad Sarim Akhtar and works as a manager for a multinational company. His Linkedin profile reads, “I am an all-round risk assurance professional with management roles in Risk Management, Internal Audit, Fraud Investigation, Compliance, and Project Management.
