Pakistan

NEW DELHI – Indian film star Rishi Kapoor congratulated team Pakistan for its victory against Kohli-11 in the Champions Trophy final on Sunday.

Kapoor tweeted: “Yes Pakistan, you have defeated us. Well played, outplayed us in all departments. Many congratulations, I concede. Best wishes!”

The veteran actor’s tweet was appreciated by his fans from across the border after he had earlier 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.
