Gautam Gambhir was in no mood to let away a separatist leader who cheered Pakistan after they defeated India in the finals of the ICC Champions Trophy. Here is what he tweeted –

Surprisingly, the leader is a citizen of India.

Pakistan defeated India in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy by a big margin of 180 runs to win the elusive Cup for the first time in history. Before the start of the game, no one gave even an outside chance to Pakistan but riding on howlers from the Indian team, Pakistan was able to turn the table and get the job done.

Fakhar Zaman shone for the team with the bat, as opening the innings for his side, batsman went onto cash the opportunity which he got after Jasprit Bumrah got him with a no-ball and after that, there was no stopping and the Navy man took a sigh of relief after scoring a century, to help his side post a huge total of 338 on the board. He was supported well by other batsmen, especially Mohammad Hafeez, who played a Yuvraj Singh style innings in the death overs and the aggressive innings of 57* off 37 made a huge difference in the end.

To chase down the target, India needed a good opening partnership but this was not the case, as Rohit Sharma departed in the very first over of the game, which saw Pakistan making few more inroads in form of Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan soon. Hardik Pandya’s cameo later in the innings though generated some hopes, but a strange run-out was enough to tell how subdued the team was under pressure in the given situation.
