Meet Zainab Abbas. A sports journalist from Pakistan who is currently in England to cover the ICC Champions Trophy. However, it is not just her beauty that’s got her in the spotlight. The journalist is now believed to be a curse! Yeah, that’s true!
Abbas took this selfie with AB de Villiers on June 7, the day of his game with Pakistan. AB de Villiers is one of the finest cricketers in the world.
In a striking coincidence, de Villiers ended up getting out for a golden duck. This happened the FIRST time in a 12-year-long career.
What happened next was quiet freaky and unbelievable at the same time. Abbas posted a selfie with Virat Kohli, another great batsman of our time.
Soon after which Kohli too got out for a duck – his first in three years.
After this, people have started tweeting about the cursed Abbas selfies:

Starting a petition to ensure @ZAbbasOfficial stays away from all the other Indian batsmen during ICC events.

Abbas herself is adding the most fuel to the fire, by happily retweeting every selfie request she gets. She is now threatening the fans to go after other teams with her doomed camera.
Strange ways to get famous! This one has been epic.
