Celebrations in GMC Srinagar Girls Hostel As Pakistan marks their first World Cup victory over arch-rivals India
Shortly after captain Babar Azam and his partner Mohammad Rizwan sealed a crushing win in their Twenty20 World Cup group match in Dubai on Sunday, cheers echoed from corridors, common room of Girls Hostel, GMC Srinagar.
On Sunday evening, loud celebrations were held in parts of India-controlled Kashmir, a Muslim majority region that has been at the heart of much of the tension between the two countries.
Fans in central Srinagar city burst crackers and shouted pro-Pakistan and pro-independence slogans.
New Delhi has struggled for decades to dampen pro-freedom sentiments in the region where most Kashmiris favour complete independence or a merger with Pakistan.
India went into the match with a 12-0 record in World Cups against their neighbours, but Pakistan snapped that streak with a 10-wicket romp at the Dubai International Stadium.
Azam scored a 52-ball 68 not out while fellow opener Rizwan hit an undefeated 55-ball 79 as Pakistan achieved their first 10-wicket win in all Twenty20 internationals by comfortably chasing down their target of 152. The loss was also India’s first 10-wicket defeat in Twenty20 cricket.
Indian skipper Kohli reacted with disbelief when asked if their unblemished track record made them complacent against the arch-rivals ahead of the Group Two blockbuster.
