Pakistan has not won in the World Cup to date

What is Jersey Controversy?
In the picture of this jersey that has surfaced on social media, Pakistan captain Babar Azam can be seen sporting the kit for the tournament with UAE written on it as the host. "ICC Men's T20 World Cup UAE 2021", reads the top right of the jersey of the batsman. The name of UAE is written on the logo of the tournament instead of India. Whereas India is the host country of the T20 World Cup, BCCI is still the official host of the mega event and hence, all team jerseys should have 'ICC Men's T20 World Cup India 2021' written on them, according to ICC rules. Due to Corona, this tournament is not being held in India but in UAE and Oman.
Pak writes #UAE 2021 instead of #Indian 2021 on their T20 #World Cup Jersey, instead of India being true host.
