Watch: Afghanistan celebrates India’s victory against Pakistan in T20 World Cup
After the Pakistan’s defeat in the T20 World Cup opener, India’s victory was celebrated not only in the arch-rival country but also in Kabul, Afghanistan.
Twitter user Nasr ullah shared a video regarding the high-octane match between arch-rival India and Pakistan.
It can be seen in the viral video that many people were present inside and outside the shop to watch the match and as soon as the Indian cricketer smashed the winning short against Pakistan, the people around the shop started celebrating the moment.
According to the user, this video is from the city of Kabul, Afghanistan, where Pakistan’s defeat and India’s victory were celebrated.
Yesterday, an unbeaten 82 from Virat Kohli led India to a stunning last-ball win over Pakistan to supercharge their bid for a first Twenty20 World Cup crown since 2007 in front of 90,000 fans at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday.
Indians restricted their fierce rivals to 159-8 and scraped home by four wickets after a remarkable final over, with superstar Kohli the hero.
It looked to be going badly wrong for India as they struggled to just 45-4 off 10 overs, halfway through their chase.
But Kohli and Hardik Pandya (40) launched a fightback with a century stand that left India needing 16 off the final over from a nervous Mohammad Nawaz, who peppered it with wides and no-balls to help them to their target.
Victory was critical in a group that also includes South Africa, Bangladesh and qualifiers Zimbabwe and the Netherlands, with only the top two making the semi-finals.
