We all witnessed a match yesterday that we wouldn’t have imagined. Pakistan, which was bottom-ranked in this tournament among the top eight sides, gave India a high total of 339 to chase in the finals of the ICC Champions Trophy. Even though Pakistan defeated India, Twitteratti agreed that the former team indeed put up a great show. But Gautam Gambhir wasn’t happy with one of the tweets, and it was of a Kashmiri separatist leader.
While Bollywood celebrities and other Twitter users congratulated Team Pakistan for their historic victory against India, the situation turned opposite when Kashmiris started to post tweets, celebrating Pakistan’s victory.

But Gautam Gambhir got really angry when Kashmiri separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who is also the Chairman of the Awami Action Committee, tweeted to express his happiness over Pakistan’s win. The former Indian opening batsman couldn’t control his anger, and reacted on the tweet.
Fireworks all around, feels like an early Eid here. Better team took the day. Congratulations team #Pakistan
