Pakistan thrashed India to clinch a 180-run victory over defending champions India in Champions Trophy final to claim the glittering silverware for the first time. On the other hand, the scenes were completely opposite in other side of London where India thrashed Pakistan in Hockey League semi-final with a huge margin of 7-1. The Blue sticks showed what they are actually capable off and held the Indian flag high against arch rivals.
Many still have those wounds of the loss of cricket but there are optimistic people still taking pride in the way India fought in the finals of Champions Trophy. Srikanth won the Indonesia SSP on the same day to which India lost in finals in cricket and Indian hockey too left no stone unturned to give Indian fans something to cheer about.
While there were mixed reactions to the final result of India’s loss and Pakistan’s win on Twitter regarding cricket, Tennis star Sania Mirza has congratulated both the countries for their victories in cricket and hockey games.
Sania Mirza tweeted:
Lost the cricket but won in hockey against Pakistan. Congratulations Team India and congratulations Team Pakistan sport is a great leveller!
