Web Desk (June 20, 2017):There is a pall of gloom in India after the team lost Champions Trophy final against its arch rival Pakistan. Many memes and social media posts have been expressing disappointment and anger at Team India’s ‘monumental’ loss. But a Twitter post by Pakistani cricketer Azhar Ali will surely bring smile on Indian faces.
In the post, Ali thanks MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh and Virat Kohli for meeting with his children.
Thanks to these legends for sparing their time for my kids they were so happy
— Azhar Ali (@AzharAli_) June 20, 2017
The gesture is being widely appreciated on social media.
Pakistan registered a remarkable turnaround win after widespread criticism following a 124-run drubbing by India in the opening group match of the tournament. It went on to defeat South Africa and England before their epic final triumph against India.
Hardik Pandya’s fireworks were the only entertainment for Indian fans in India’s 339-run chase. Pandya smashed 76 off 43 balls.
