India were hit by Pakistan in the finals of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, in a similar way in which they defeat Pakistan in their opening game of the tournament.
The Men in Green outplayed the defending champions in all three departments of the game to justify their first-ever win in the tournament. Hasan Ali received the golden ball, while Shikhar Dhawan won the golden bat.
Disappointed Indian fans tried to find console in India’s win over Pakistan in another sport – hockey. India’s daughter and Pakistan’s daughter-in-law Sania Mirza, wife of cricketer Shoaib Malik, expressed emotions in her tweet after the final.
The Indian tennis expert congratulated India’s hockey team and Pakistan’s cricket team, saying the sport is a great leveller after all.
As far as the performance of her husband was concerned, he could not contribute much to Pakistan’s mammoth score of 338, walking back on only 12 runs. Their journey to the finals, and then to the title, was heartwarming.
India hammered Pakistan 7-1 in the semifinal of the World Hockey League also in London, something that was historic for the Indian team. And just as Mrs Malik said, that is the beauty of sports.
