“SAT Math course is really good because it helped me learn a lot in a short period of time and I made a perfect score on SAT Math.”- Josette Chang  

India won the toss, elected to bat first, set a target of 301 for Pakistan and backed their strong batting performance with a crushing bowling attack causing their arch-rival to be all out at 224 in 47 overs.

It was as simple as that. It was India all the way! 

Needless to say the whole country was thrown into a frenzy of jubilation and celebrations. The team India players' families back home has hundreds of visitors wanting to celebrate the victory with them. On the other hand, stories coming in from Pakistan were just the opposite as there were reports of crowd breaking their television sets in frustration.

For those of you who love cricket, but haven't been following the details, here are the five top post victory coverage the day after-  

# 1.The Headlines-

Indian Express-"An India-Pakistan story plays out again"

The Hindu- "India snaps Pakistan’s will, yet again"

Hindustan Times- "India crush Pakistan by 76 runs to launch campaign in style"

The Times Of India-"India hit Pakistan for six"

(Referring to India's 6-0 stat against Pakistan in World Cup confrontations).

Dawn: "Pakistan fail to break jinx as India record 76-run victory"

# 2. The Quotes-

Sachin Tendulkar- "Don't know what I did.. some fans are outside my house... Celebrating... Wish I could have joined them! "

Amitabh Bachchan-" A win for India against Pakistan .. and the ecstasy of joy and happiness .. a time spent inside the box for commentary among legends of cricket .. and a victory decisive .. !!!"

(Yes, Amitabh Bachchan was  in commentary box in Mumbai on Star during the match and it is said that he had practiced hard for the occasion)

# 3. The Congratulatory Notes- 

PM congratulated #TeamIndia and Virat Kholi replies

Congrats Team India. Well played. We are all very proud of you.


Thank You for your best wishes sir. We are ready to give it our all. Jai Hind!

#4. The Humor-

What happens when Pakistan loses against India yet again? Of course, people flood social media with jokes on anything and everything relating to the match. 

Indian Express shared "funny reactions to Pakistan's yet another defeat by India". Here are two interesting ones referring to the video at that we shared earlier that went viral.

Pakistan fan- "Our last hope! Sher aya sher.. (referring to Nawab Sharif)

#5. The Controversy-

India- Pakistan match cannot really be without any controversies. So here is what this one led to-

The Hindu reports that the All India Radio Twitter handle on Sunday re-tweeted obnoxious anti-Pakistan tweets by some of its followers after India beat Pakistan in their opening World Cup cricket match. This is what happened according to India's leading daily-

All India Radio invited tweets wishing Team India the best using #WCFirSe when the India-Pakistan World Cup match was under way in the Adelaide Oval on Sunday afternoon. "Best will get re-tweet from us,” it said. Some of its followers tweeted explosive anti-Pakistan tweets, which it re-tweeted. Now, considering that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is using cricket diplomacy to resume talks with Pakistan, the national radio broadcaster’s social media feed can snowball into a major controversy as per the daily. 

We say... 

Congratulations team India for winning this one, for setting the mood for an exciting World Cup 2015, but most importantly for maintaining the record of being unbeaten against Pakistan in World Cup. It is 6-0 for #TeamIndia in World Cup matches against Pakistan.

Special congratulations to Virat Kohli, the man of the match, who has become the first batsman to ever score a century against Pakistan in a World Cup. The previous highest was 98 by Sachin Tendulkar. Is that a sign that Virat Kohli is the new Sachin Tendulkar?
