The provocation started as Farooq cheered for Pakistan minutes after the victory adding that the victory was like an early Eid for the Kashmiris.

However, Indian cricketer Gautam who definitely was expecting the opposite results in the purview of his team’s previous performance lost his temper and retaliated by advising Farooq to cross the border to celebrate Eid.

The left-arm opener was also annoyed at cementing of Pakistan’s ties with China, proof of which could visibly be seen in his angered tweet.

Although Green Shirts were getting mammoth support from their countrymen during the tournament but a landslide majority in Indian occupied Kashmir also threw weight behind Pakistan.

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq had felicitated Pakistan on its victory against England as well that could have perturbed Indian elite trying to get hold of restive region with fruitless efforts.

It is relevant to mention that Green Shirts victory was celebrated in Pakistan with a group of young people pouring out on roads blaring patriotic songs and sloganeering in support of the playing XI but another celebration that happened in Srinagar was widely shared on social media.
