Indian film star Rishi Kapoor congratulated team Pakistan for its victory against Kohli-11 in the Champions Trophy final on Sunday.
Kapoor tweeted: âYes Pakistan, you have defeated us. Well played, outplayed us in all departments. Many congratulations, I concede. Best wishes!â
The veteran actor’s tweet was appreciated by his fans from across the border as surprisingly earlier he tweeted provocative words against the Pakistani team before the final game.
But the young Pakistani team, ranked eighth at the beginning of the tournament, proved naysayers like Kapoor wrong, stunning the world by reaching the final and thrashing an in-form and star-studded Indian side by 180 runs to lift the Champions Trophy.Â
After setting a mammoth 339 run target, Pakistan shot India down at 158 runs to secure one of the greatest victories in the history of cricket.
Mohammad Amir tore apart the famed Indian top three, shaking India to the core as Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan headed back to the pavilion.Â
