We may not have the authentic Mr. Bean, but we do possess an authentic cricketing spirit, and Pakistanis have a funny knack for coming back from setbacks.

Thursday, following the cricket team’s victory against Pakistan, Zimbabwe President Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa congratulated them.

However, his mention of Mr. Bean caused some to take notice. “Wow, Zimbabwe has won! I’m happy for the Chevrons. Send the authentic Mr. Bean next time with #PakvsZim “he wrote.

President Emmerson made fun of Pakistani comedian Asif Muhammad, who is a spoof of actor Rowan Atkinson’s Mr. Bean character from the television series Mr. In 2016, Asif had gone to Zimbabwe under the guise of Mr. Bean.

“As Zimbabweans, we won’t forgive you…you once gave us that Fraud Pak Bean instead of Mr. Bean Rowan..we will settle the matter tomorrow just pray the rains will save you,” tweeted Ngugi Chasura in response to a Pakistan Cricket Board post about the team’s players practicing before the Zimbabwe match.

The Pakistan-Zimbabwe match was dubbed the “Mr. Bean Derby” as the post triggered a flurry of responses on social media.
