With team India winning the world cup 2019 match against Pakistan, the fans have started pouring in their wishes for the Indian team for its spectacular performance and victory.

Former Victorian wicketkeeper Darren Berry lost it watching India's win over Pakistan at the World Cup overnight, blaming a series of blunders on the unnecessary accessories on some players' hands. Here's a look at some of the best tweets as the India-Pakistan match unfolded.

Earlier, India went into the contest with an unblemished 6-0 record against their arch-rivals in a sell-out match that began under grey skies at Old Trafford.

They treated Mohammad Amir with respect and Hasan Ali with disdain, and were at ease when spinners Shadab Khan and Imad Hasim operated in tandem.

He put on an opening partnership of 136 with KL Rahul (57) and the top order assault continued when Kohli arrived at the crease.

But a quickfire stand of 98 with Kohli ended when Sharma, trying a needlessly extravagant scoop, flicked Hasan to short fine leg.

Rohit led the charge as he brought up his 50 in just 34 deliveries with the help of six fours and two sixes. Rohit eventually fell for a superb 140 and Kohli scored 77 in quick time while Hardik Pandya chipped in with a quick-fire 26.

Doing so would disrupt oil tankers travelling out of the Gulf region to the Indian Ocean and global export routes. The Houthis say they launched a cruise missile that struck the Abha airport Wednesday.

Chasing a mammoth total of 336 at the start, Pakistan faltered after a steady start.

Sharing the new ball with Jasprit Bumrah, Kumar was into his third over when he landed awkwardly and hobbled off the ground, leaving India one bowler short.

But Vijay Shankar, completing the over, struck first ball when he had opener Imam-ul-Haq lbw for seven.

Kohli was also relieved that Kuldeep Yadav was back in form.

Then Pakistan lost the wickets of Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik in quick succession and were down and out of the game.

But the umpires decided play could resume, only for Pakistan to be left needing an outlandish further 136 in just five more overs to reach a revised D/L winning score of 302 in 40 overs.
