PDP leader and former J&K Chief Minister also celebrated India's victory and enjoyed Pakistani team's “self deprecating humour".
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.— Mehbooba Mufti (@MehboobaMufti) June 16, 2019
India's victory was led by vice-captain Rohit Sharma who scored a brilliant innings of 140 runs to lead the team to a huge total of 336 runs. Pakistan's response was tame as they kept losing wickets throughout the innings and ended up with 212 runs for the loss of six wickets in 40 overs. Fakhar Zaman was the lone warrior as he played a well-crafted innings of 62 runs. This was India's seventh victory against Pakistan in the World Cup, taking their tally to 7-0.
