Malala Yousafzai congratulates Pakistan on win over England

Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai congratulated Pakistan on their nine-wicket victory over England in the first Test of the two-match series.

The 20-year-old activist attended Lord’s stadium in London along with her friends and posted a celebratory message on Twitter.

"A beautiful day at Lords cricket ground watching PakVsEng test match. Congratulations to Pakistan team on their spectacular victory," she wrote.

A big fan of cricket

Yousafzai, the youngest ever Nobel Prize winner, has declared her love for cricket on several occasions.

In an interview with Pakistani social news site MangoBaaz in March, Malala expressed her passion for the sport.

"My whole family loves cricket," she said. "I grew up playing cricket in streets with my brothers and friends. My family loves attending matches. I am really happy that Peshawar Zalmi is doing so well in the PSL 2018. And watching cricket at Oxford and being in the cricket club reminds me of home, of my family - and it’s a lot of fun."

Back in April, the activist for female education stated that her favorite cricketer is the Dhaka Dynamites’ all-rounder and former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi.
