With this, India maintained an incredible winning record, making it 7-0, against Pakistan in World Cups.
A century from Rohit Sharma, and some inspired bowling from Kuldeep Yadav and Hardik Pandya saw India beat Pakistan by 89 runs (D/L method). As soon as India notched seventh world cup triumph over Pakistan, congratulatory messages started to pour in from Bollywood celebs. Salman Khan led congratulatory wishes for The Men in Blue.
Salman, who is currently basking in the success of his recently released Bharat, congratulated Team India in typical "Salman" style.
Sharing a picture of himself wearing a Team India jersey, Salman wrote, "Congratulations team Bharat... from #Bharat."
Actor Anil Kapoor also gave a shout-out to Virat Kohli's men, tweeting, "All eyes were glued to the screens today! A fantastic match & a great win! Sunday well spent! Congratulations #TeamIndia!"

"India, India! What a win," posted actress Tamannaah Bhatia.
Singer Mika Singh tweeted, "Heartiest congratulations to our Indian cricket team.. Proud to be an Indian!"
To cheer for Team India, several Bollywood celebrities flew down to the UK.
