Congrats to #IndianCricketTeam for a terrific performance & making the country proud. Pakistan lost but they surely made twitter more entertaining with their self deprecating humour.

Rohit Sharma’s superb 140 and Virat Kohli’s record-breaking innings of 77, let India put up a daunting total of 336 for the loss of five wickets from their 50 overs.
India, who have never lost a World Cup game to Pakistan, then produced an excellent effort in the field, with Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya and Kuldeep Yadav claiming two wickets apiece to reduce Pakistan to 212 for the loss of six wickets at the end of a rain-affected game.
