The entire population of two neighbouring nations, India and Pakistan, watched with bated breath today as their national teams competed against each other in the finals of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 at Lord’s Cricket Ground, London.
Having won the series in the last tournament that was held in 2013, team India were the defending champions and being in top form, many predicted that it would be the men in blue who would take the coveted trophy home. However, displaying extraordinary form on the pitch, with batsman Fakhar Zaman scoring his maiden century and deathly seamer Mohammad Amir dismissing the Indian top order with his lethal spell, 1.2 billion Indians watched stumped as the Pakistani skipper Sarfraz Ahmed led his team to victory.
Extending their heartfelt wishes and congratulatory messages, Bollywood celebrities took to social media to wish the proud winners on this remarkable feat. Check out the messages:
