'Another Strike On Pak...': Amit Shah Praises Team India After Big Win

Home Minister Amit Shah praised India's cricket World Cup win over Pakistan in a Twitter message


New Delhi: 

The Indian cricket team's comfortable 89-run victory over Pakistan yesterday at the ongoing cricket World Cup in England earned them lavish praise from Home Minister Amit Shah and other top leaders. "Another strike on Pakistan by team India and the result is the same," Mr Shah tweeted.

India extended their unbeaten World Cup run against Pakistan to seven matches after their victory via DLS method in Manchester.

"Another strike on Pakistan by team India and the result is the same. Congratulations to the entire team for this superb performance. Every Indian is feeling proud and celebrating this impressive win," the Home Minister tweeted.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh also congratulated the team for an "amazing game".

His colleagues and senior BJP leaders Nitin Gadkari, Piyush Goyal and Kiren Rijiju, who is Minister of State (independent) for Sports, also tweeted congratulations.

"Thank you," the Congress tweeted, congratulating the Men in Blue for the thumping win.

"Congratulations team India for incomparable victory against Pakistan. You continuously made the country feel proud. Thank you!" a tweet in Hindi from the Congress' official handle read.

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot also extended their wishes to team India.

"Congratulations team India for this magnificent victory over Pakistan. You have given all Indians a moment of pride!" Mr Gehlot tweeted.

"Heartiest congratulations to team India for keeping their invincible order against Pakistan and wishes for the matches ahead. We hope that you will bring honour to the country by winning the World Cup. We are proud of Team India," Mr Pilot tweeted in Hindi.

The Aam Admi Party (AAP) called the Indian cricket team "unstoppable".

"Congrats to Indian Cricket Team for a terrific performance and making the country proud. Pakistan lost but they surely made Twitter more entertaining with their self-deprecating humour," former Jamu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti tweeted.

Led by Rohit Sharma's superb 140 and Virat Kohli's record-breaking innings of 77, India posted a daunting total of 336 for the loss of five wickets from their 50 overs.

India, who have never lost a World Cup game to Pakistan, then produced an excellent effort in the field, with Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya and Kuldeep Yadav claiming two wickets apiece to reduce Pakistan to 212 for the loss of six wickets at the end of a rain-affected game.
