  1. India is a land where communal harmony disrupts the peace of the nation and other times, some beautiful examples warm our hearts and instils our faith in humanity. It's Eid today and the celebrations are not just limited to our Muslim brethren. © Twitter Atif Anwar stood at the India gate with a blindfold over his eyes with a message that garnered a lot of attention. He quoted a very simple requested to break his ‘roza' with his Hindu brothers. © Facebook The video that records this social experiment is proof that humanity and love overcomes any evil that any political or religious boundaries may portray. The video is now going viral and why not, it's a wonderful lesson in communal harmony for all of us.
  2. Photo: File Indian police Saturday said one person has been arrested after a mob stabbed a Muslim teenager to death on suspicion of carrying beef, an offence in many parts of the Hindu-majority country. Cows are revered by Hindus and slaughtering them as well as possession or consumption of beef is banned in most Indian states, with some imposing life sentences for breaking the law. Junaid Khan, 15, was travelling from New Delhi on Friday with three of his brothers when a fight erupted over seats. Between 15 and 20 men pulled out knives and set upon the brothers while making anti-Muslim comments and insisting one of the packets they were carrying contained beef. While Khan was stabbed to death, his brother Shakir sustained injuries on the throat, chest and hands, police said. "The fight started over seats. We are looking into the matter and we have arrested one of the accused who is a 35-year-old old man from (northern state of) Haryana," Ajay Kumar, a government railway police official told AFP. Khan´s brother Hassem told reporters the mob ignored their repeated pleas that they were not carrying any beef. "They were pointing at a packet which had food and saying we should not be allowed to sit since we were carrying beef," Haseem said. The incident is the latest such attack by Hindu vigilantes in India, where there have been a spate of assaults against Muslims and low-caste Dalits. In the last two years, nearly a dozen Muslim men have been killed across the country on suspicion of eating beef or smuggling cows. Critics say vigilantes have been emboldened by the election in 2014 of Prime Minister Narendra Modi´s Hindu right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party. Last year Modi criticised the cow protection vigilantes and urged a crackdown against groups using religion as a cover for committing crimes.
  3. LONDON: India had their second big win in hockey against Pakistan in the past six days.

  4. A six-year-old girl in India was killed for soiling the bed, reported India Times. According to the police, Rabi, was killed by her mother's lover whom they were living with. The police added Rabi and her mother Parul were living with the latter's lover Saurabh. On Monday night, Rabi urinated on the bed. When Saurabh got to know he got enraged, banging the six-year-old's head against a wall due to which she fell unconscious. However, after a while, he took Rabi to the hospital where the doctors pronounced her as brought dead. Hospital staff informed the police about the incident. Subsequently, Saurabh was arrested and a murder case registered against him. Parul had separated with her husband three years ago, after which she along with Rabi started living with Saurabh, said the police.

  6. LEFT: India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Mexico City, Mexico, June 8, 2016. REUTERS/Edgard Garrido; RIGHT: US President Donald Trump in Washington, US, March 19, 2017. REUTERS/Joshua Roberts The United States is on track to announce plans to supply India with 22 Guardian drones in a deal worth more than $2 billion, a source familiar with the deal said on Thursday. The approval of the sale of the naval variant of the Predator drone comes ahead of a visit by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the United States as he tries to revitalise relations with Washington. The deal would still require approval by Congress. Securing agreement on the purchase of 22 unarmed drones is seen in New Delhi as a key test of defence ties that flourished under former President Barack Obama but have drifted under President Donald Trump, who has courted Asian rival China as he seeks Beijing's help to contain North Korea's nuclear program. Modi's two-day visit to Washington begins on Sunday.
  7. File Photo. NEW DELHI: Indian police said Thursday that 15 Muslims arrested for celebrating a recent Pakistani cricket victory over India would not be charged with sedition, but could still face prison for cheering the rival side. The villagers from central Madhya Pradesh state were arrested Monday after letting off fireworks and cheering for Pakistan as the underdogs thrashed India by 180 runs in the final of the Champions Trophy in England. A Hindu neighbour in Burhanpur district complained to police and the men were detained for sedition -- which can carry a life sentence -- among other offences, drawing criticism from rights groups. 20 arrested in India for celebrating Pakistan?s Champions Trophy victory Individuals were arrested on charges of sedition. But Burhanpur police chief Raja Ram Parihar said the sedition charges had been dropped as there was no evidence the men chanted anti-India slogans. "They did shout slogans in favour of the Pakistan cricket team and lit firecrackers, but that does not warrant sedition charges," Parihar told AFP. However, they still face charges of disrupting communal harmony and criminal conspiracy for the rowdy celebration in Burhanpur, which has large Muslim and Hindu populations and a history of religious violence. Rights group Amnesty international slammed the arrests and demanded the men be immediately released. At least eight other cricket fans were arrested around India on sedition charges after celebrating Pakistan?s thumping win against the arch-rivals. Passions run high in both countries over cricket, especially when the hostile neighbours meet on the pitch. Cricket fans in both countries have been arrested in the past for supporting rival teams. Around 60 Indian students were arrested for sedition in 2014 after being accused of cheering for Pakistan after a similar upset over India. Last year a Pakistani man was arrested for waving an Indian flag after his idol Virat Kohli, India?s cricket captain, made a match-winning century.

  9. Ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) surprised everyone by inviting fresh applications for the job of their national team's coach. With the availability of Anil Kumble who took the Indian team to new heights within a year of his appointment, the move clearly made no sense. While many would have expected Kumble to get an automatic extension, the BCCI claimed that his contract - which supposedly lacked a performance clause - was flawed and had, thereon, instigated their decision to invite new applications for the coaching job. But, there was something much bigger and more serious that had in fact led to those developments. Soon, reports of an alleged rift between Kumble and Virat Kohli surfaced which had everyone speculating. However, the Indian captain quashed all those reports, labelling them as nothing, but mere speculations. Since then, the BCCI's Committee of Administrators (COA) and Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) were busy brokering a deal between Kumble and Kohli. And, while many believed that the duo would eventually work their differences out for the betterment of the team, the cat is finally out of the hat. Thank you! pic.twitter.com/eF5qVzdBRj — Anil Kumble (@anilkumble1074) June 20, 2017 Kumble has stepped down as Team India's coach citing his untenable differences with skipper Kohli as the main reason. But, what really happened? What were the differences between the two? And, more importantly, how on earth did the BCCI ended up making a complete mess of the situation? We're confused. Headmaster, Not A Coach? © BCCL Ever since his appointment as coach, Kumble brought his valuable expertise and vast knowledge of the game to the Indian team. The veteran leggie introduced new drills in training, contributed to the development of bowlers and was nothing less than a father-figure to the Indian players. For a man who played cricket on his own terms - aggressive and with the desire to win, Kumble was looking to inject similar notions in the Indian team. However, irrespective of his agenda, the Indian players including Kohli weren't happy with the ways of their coach. The players claimed that there was no freedom in the dressing room and insisted that Kumble did not enjoy cordial relations with them. Other than that, there were consistent differences between Kohli and Kumble on the team selection. And, more recently, his half-an-hour dressing down session where he blasted the players for their shambolic show in the ICC Champions Trophy final apparently didn't go down well with the Indian cricketers. Wait, what? So the Indian players want a coach that says 'it's ok, let's move on' after a forgetful outing. Someone who is not a hard taskmaster. Probably the one who allows them to go shopping and not really question their performances. It's like a school kid complaining about his strict teacher, only to realise his/her importance later in life. Did Kohli Betray Kumble? © BCCL It is a known fact that Kohli shared a very close relationship with then Team Director Ravi Shastri who was considered a front-runner for the post of India's coach. While Kumble's appointment ahead of Shastri for the top job clearly surprised many, the former Indian spinner probably did all he could to ensure Kohli didn't really miss Shastri. During the second Test against England in November last year, Kumble threw his weight behind the Indian captain who was being accused of ball tampering. Much earlier in his career, it was Kumble who had backed Kohli to the hilt in Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by retaining him after the first three years in the IPL. So much so that, in February this year, Kohli had himself revealed how Kumble helped him use his aggression and channelise it for the greater good. Then, what really changed in the past few months? How can you laud someone by highlighting his importance and then completely make a U-turn to brand him as someone who's impossible to work with? If that's not betrayal, what is? What Was The BCCI Doing? © BCCL Irrespective of the amount of runs they've scored or the popularity they enjoy, no cricketer should be allowed to dictate terms on the matters concerning the team as a whole. While a captain is surely allowed to express his views, at the end of the day, he is not above a cricket board. If that's the case, then why was the BCCI quietly following Kohli's script during the sensitive Kumble saga? This was more a clash of Kohli's personal ego against a player who has played 403 international games for India. So, what if he was a disciplinarian or a tough task-master? He led India to 12 victories in 17 Test matches and, more recently, to the final of the Champions Trophy. He was getting the results for India, nonetheless. Kohli had the opportunity to emerge as a great leader by understanding reasons of conflict with Kumble and by finding ways to rise above it. But, rather than burying the hatchet, Kohli has only set a bad precedent by asserting his superstar status and take control of the Indian dressing room. And, more importantly, the BCCI is playing into Kohli's hands by allowing him to have his way rather than stamp its authority and tell Kohli & Co. to get on with the game. Though it's a pity that Kohli couldn't rise above his differences with Kumble for the greater good of his team, BCCI's incompetence to handle the situation is surely a signal for the next coach to either bow down to what players want you to do, or suffer a fate similar to the veteran leg-spinner. A Great Failing © BCCL The entire episode will arguably go down as one of Indian cricket's greatest failings after its gifted batsman and one of the shrewdest tacticians of the game could not be on the same page. And, the chorus within the sports fraternity was no different. If it is true that @anilkumble1074 has stepped down as coach, Indian cricket has let itself lose an outstanding resource. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) June 20, 2017 India are losing a Great man in @anilkumble1074 ... realty hope he stays in some role .... far too good a bloke to lose ... #India — Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) June 20, 2017 The fact that Kumble will not go to West Indies shows how hurt he is the way he's been treated. Not the way to treat a legend. https://t.co/JvQzt1IJ51 — Zakka Jacob (@Zakka_Jacob) June 20, 2017 My biggest teachers was coach Uwe.I hated him!But stuck with him for 20 years.He always told me things I did not want to hear.#justsaying — Abhinav Bindra (@Abhinav_Bindra) June 20, 2017 Sometimes that's the important part of training 🙈 I remember my sir doing the same...he still does it!!! — Gutta Jwala (@Guttajwala) June 20, 2017 Not surprised w/Kumble quitting-no self-respecting wud've carried on n such environment!Crkt Ind needed 'Jumbo' more than other way around?! — Bishan Bedi (@BishanBedi) June 20, 2017 Whether losing Kumble as coach is good or bad for Indian cricket, only time will tell. But, while Kohli's ego clearly won the battle, the Indian cricket team undeniably lost a coach who will surely be hard to replace, especially with the World Cup just two years away.
  10. Twenty years ago Bollywood created a film that made history. ‘Mr India' is one such film that got a cult status and it always manages to entertain you no matter when you watch it. The dialogue “Mogambo khush hua” and Sridevi's Hawa Hawaii performance are still remembered. Imagine if we could get a chance to watch its sequel! Wouldn't it be one of the greatest news B-town has to offer this year? © Narsimha Enterprises This Anil Kapoor and Sridevi film was based on the concept of invisibility. The concept attracted the viewers and they loved how the story was presented on screen. The film became the highest grossing picture then. And now they are all set to entertain the audience yet again and we just can't keep calm! As per media reports, the sequel to the film is in pipeline. Talks are going on and if everything goes as per the plan, soon Mr. India 2 will be all set to be shot. The latest sequel will also feature a new couple along with Anil and Sridevi. This isn't the first time that the talks of this 1987 film sequel are going on. However, this time Boney Kapoor has given a heads-up, clearing the air and confirming the news. © Narsimha Enterprises Talking to Pinkvilla, he said, "Yes Mr. India sequel is definitely on. However, I can't talk any more now or reveal any more details. We will make the official announcements after everything is worked out creatively." Sridevi at present is busy promoting her film ‘MOM' while Anil is gearing up for his film ‘Mubarakan'. © Narsimha Enterprises Well, Boney Kapoor just made our day and we are keeping our fingers crossed. Are you rooting for ‘Mr India' sequel as well?
  11. Police in India have arrested 15 Muslims for allegedly celebrating Pakistan?s stunning victory against India in the Champions Trophy finale. The 15 people were arrested in the Madhya Pradesh state on Monday over charges of sedition. They were shouting slogans in favour of Pakistan and bursting crackers, police claimed. The accused would be presented before the court on Tuesday. Pakistan thrashed India by 180 runs to clinch their maiden Champions Trophy title, in a historic victory featuring a quickfire hundred by batting sensation Fakhar Zaman and a magical spell by Mohammad Amir which removed both the Indian openers and skipper Virat Kohli.
  12. While Anil Kapoor and Sridevi have been one of the best on-screen couples in the past, their movie my India also broke many records in the Bollywood. The duo was not only famous for their on-screen chemistry but also allegedly had an affair in the past. Anil Kapoor and Sridevi did not share the screen together after Sridevi married Anil Kapoor's elder brother Boney Kapoor. But according to Indian media sources, after almost two decades, the duo is all set to share the screen together again for the sequel of Mr. India. As per the source close to the sequel?s production, ?The idea is to take the story forward, but not just for the heck of it. We wanted a solid plot, and we have got it.? The source also revealed that Sridevi and Anil Kapoor wouldn?t be the only important actors working in the sequel. The film will be helmed by a new director and will also feature two fresh faces in the lead roles Shekhar Kapoor directed the original Mr. India and the film had one of its iconic character Mogambo, played by Amrish Puri.

  14. LE BOURGET: Lockheed Martin has agreed with Tata Advanced Systems Ltd to jointly build F-16 fighter planes equipped with new-generation electronics in India, both companies said on Monday. The fighters are of the Block 70 type, "the newest and most technologically advanced F-16 ever", they said. "The F-16 Block 70 is ideally suited to meet the Indian Air Force´s single-engine fighter needs and this unmatched US-Indian industry partnership directly supports India´s initiative to develop private aerospace and defense manufacturing capacity in India," said the statement, released on the Paris air show´s opening day. The Indian air force does not currently use F-16s, but industry experts say that local production would be a strong argument in favour of the US plane against its rivals, including French company Dassault´s Rafale, in future procurement decisions. India in 2016 agreed to buy 36 Rafale combat planes for around eight billion euros. Accompanying that deal was a partnership agreement between Dassault and India´s Reliance Group and a promise by Dassault to invest about half of the value of the contract in India. The French company recently said it was in talks for India to buy at least 50 more. India, the world´s top defence importer, is conducting a $100-billion upgrade of its Soviet-era military hardware, facing border disputes with its northern and western neighbours, China and Pakistan. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has moved to reduce India´s reliance on expensive imports and called for the manufacturing of defence equipment locally. Modi´s government has raised the limit on foreign investment in the defence sector and encouraged tie-ups between foreign and local companies. The announcement comes a week before Modi visits Washington for talks with President Donald Trump, who has been putting pressure on American companies to keep production at home. The multi-role F-16 has been in production since 1978, with Lockheed so far producing a total of 4,500 units of the aircraft of which 3,200 are currently in service. Tata Advanced Systems Ltd, a subsidiary of Tata Sons, already runs manufacturing partnerships with several global players, including Boeing, Airbus and Sikorsky.
  15. Labelled as one of the top contenders to win the ICC Champions Trophy title, the Indian cricket team fell flat on its face after a shambolic 180-run loss against Pakistan - who were not only ranked the lowest of all the sides playing in the tournament, but also happen to be their arch-rivals. On a day when literally nothing worked in their favour, Virat Kohli's side was hammered for a whopping 338 runs and then bowled out for a paltry 158 runs to concede the biggest defeat by a team in the final of an ICC tournament. © Reuters Despite boasting of a formidable batting line-up, none of the big guns including Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh came to the rescue of India who were left reeling at 54-5 in under 14 overs of their innings. 🎥🇮🇳 The @BCCI scorecard didn't make for pretty reading, except for @hardikpandya7's blistering lone hand 76 off 43 deliveries #PAKvIND #CT17 pic.twitter.com/iI2u0LNWOM — ICC (@ICC) June 18, 2017 Hardik Pandya gave India a ray of hope with his blistering 43-ball 76, but the explosive batsman was left fuming after Ravindra Jadeja got him run-out in the 27th over. The better team won today.. but my heart will always #BleedBlue next time team India.. @hardikpandya7 u fought so well!! — Huma Qureshi (@humasqureshi) June 18, 2017 Facing Hasan Ali, Jadeja punched the ball into the cover region as Pandya called for a run. However, rather than responding to his partner's call, Jadeja was ball-watching before leaving Pandya stranded in the middle. The young Indian batsman who was looking good for India was furious with Jadeja's exploits before taking the long walk back into the pavilion. Meanwhile #HardikPandya to #Jadeja in dressing room 😂😂😂👇 #INDvPAK #CT2017Final #PAKvIND pic.twitter.com/jCUAJQ5bwZ — Amrita (@amritabirdie) June 18, 2017 While the incident was clearly part and parcel of the game, Pandya seems to have taken it to heart. The 23-year-old took to Twitter and expressed his displeasure after India's heavy loss to Pakistan. © Twitter "Hume to apno ne loota, gairo me kahan dum tha (We were looted by one of us, why blame others)," Pandya tweeted. While no one was specifically mentioned in his tweet, it wasn't hard to ascertain who was being targetted by Pandya there. But, soon after his comments, Pandya's tweet attracted a lot of flak which forced the budding Indian cricketer to delete it. The anger of Hardik Pandya on getting out showed he thought he could take us home. #attitude 👍👍 — Yusuf Unjhawala 🇮🇳 (@YusufDFI) June 18, 2017 In a game where Indian bowlers were smashed all over the park, Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were the only silver lining for their side. After the impressing everyone with the ball, Pandya also notched up a 32-ball fifty - fastest by a player in the final of an ICC tournament. He surpassed Adam Gilchrist who slammed a 33-ball half-century at the 1999 World Cup.
  16. After Pakistan beat India on Sunday taking home their first Champions Trophy, Pakistani anchor Aamir Liaquat lost his shit and launched an insane rant against India, Indian players, Indian actors, and Indian Prime Minister (basically everything Indian) on his current affairs show titled ‘Aisay Nahi Chalay Ga’ on BOL News. Instead of staying on topic, the anchor starts criticizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Indian captain Virat Kohli and Rishi Kapoor. The show starts with the following – “Indian mothers would tell their children, be afraid of the Pakistani team because when they arrive they would defeat you by 180 runs.” Highlighting the entire baap-beta trend over the internet, he rants “tumhaare asal baap hum hai, baap baap hota hai aur paap paap hota hai”. He goes on addressing the Prime minister as Darindar Modi, asking him to drown in the ‘chullu bhar paani’ that he has banned Pakistan from using. Watch the video here – The anchor does not even spare Bollywood actor, Rishi Kapoor by saying, “We don’t use Kapoor in our names, we eat Kapoor”, in response to the actor’s tweets taking a dig at Pakistan prior to the contest.

He has been known for regularly inviting trouble on himself for his big mouth and had been recently banned by the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority for hate speech against activists. © Aamir Liaquat Well, our response to this over excited anchor would be, “Father’s Day pe bachon ke liye itna toh banta hai.”
  17. India's captain Virat Kohli walks back to the pavilion after losing his wicket during the ICC Champions Trophy final cricket match between India and Pakistan at The Oval in London on June 18, 2017. AFP / Ian Kington LONDON: Indian captain Virat Kohli said the pressure created by Pakistan's bowlers proved too much for his title-holders to handle in a stunning 180-run Champions Trophy final defeat at The Oval. After Kohli won the toss and, surprisingly, opted to field first, Pakistan posted an imposing total of 338 for four featuring Fakhar Zaman's maiden one-day international hundred, an innings where he might have been run out for one and was caught off a no-ball on three. It all left India needing to set a new tournament record for a team batting second to win if they were to retain the title they won in England four years ago. Ironically, the mark they had to top was the 322 for three made by Sri Lanka in the seven-wicket win over India at The Oval on June 8 ? the lone group-stage loss suffered by Kohli's side. The already considerable scoreboard pressure became impossible for India to cope with when Mohammad Amir reduced them to 33 for three. The Pakistan left-arm quick's brilliant burst of three for 16 in 28 balls saw him snare opener Rohit Sharma lbw for a duck and have Kohli, the world's leading ODI batsman, caught off a leading edge for just five. "They made us make those mistakes with the way they were bowling, creating that pressure," Kohli told reporters. 'High risk' If left-handed opener Fakhar rode his luck at times, he also produced an array of superb shots, notably in a first-wicket stand of 128 with Azhar Ali. "When players like that get going on their day, it becomes really difficult to stop them because I think 80 percent of his shots were high-risk ? and they were all coming off," said Kohli. "As a bowler and as a captain when that is happening? sometimes you have to sit and say 'the guy is good enough on the day to tackle anything'. "We certainly tried to make them hit in areas that we felt it would be uncomfortable, but we just didn't have anything going our way in that partnership." Meanwhile, reflecting on India's tournament as a whole, Kohli insisted: "We can (still) be very proud ... and we leave here with our heads held high. "Credit to everyone for standing up and showing that resilience and reaching the finals ? (but) we were outplayed in all departments. "In the end? you have to accept and admire sometimes the skill of the opposition," Kohli added sportingly.
  18. In a tournament that was featuring the world's top-eight ODI sides, Pakistan were the lowest ranked of all the teams taking part in the ICC Champions Trophy. They had also slipped to the ninth spot in the ICC ODI rankings after a shocking loss to Zimbabwe, just four days after the cut-off date to qualify for the ICC mega event. For all the fans, cricket pundits and even the so-called astrologers, there was no way Pakistan was going to pose a threat to anyone, let alone win the coveted title. And, after their first game against a team they cannot lose to, Pakistan were dead and buried. The only being which airline they would use to book their flight back home. There was no way Sarfraz Ahmed-led side was going to march ahead in the tournament. But, then came the resurrection from the dead, the kind even the Gods would be proud of, to not just reach the final, but to annihilate an opponent they had developed a habit of losing to in the ICC events.

A bolt so impressive that it even reminded everyone of their glory days, when the likes of Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Saeed Anwar ran the show. Congratulations Pakistan on a really comprehensive victory today. Well played, deserved winners and a great result for Pakistan cricket. — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) June 18, 2017 Riding on the back of three commendable wins, Pakistan were expected to run out of steam against a much-superior and more-proven Indian side in the summit clash. They were up against a team that had impressed everyone with their formidable batting line-up and the one that looked the most complete side in the tournament. But, high on self-belief and with much-needed momentum on their side, a spirited Pakistani brigade did what no one could have possibly imagined - wreak havoc on Virat Kohli's men. © Reuters Asked to bat first, Pakistan were off to a nervy start with both Fakhar Zaman and Azhar Ali looking vulnerable against the disciplined line and lengths of India's opening bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah. And then, just one mistake from India - a no-ball from Bumrah - and Pakistan literally ran away with the game. Pakistan's batting line-up that was probably their achilles heel in the tournament was not expected to stand a chance against the innovative Indian seamers. And even somehow if they ended up surviving early on, they were surely no match for India's world-class spin duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, right? Wrong. #Scenes.

The only thing that was on display turned out to be some attacking and fearless batting of the highest order, the one that left the Indian bowlers clueless and captain Kohli wondering just how it had all gone wrong so quickly. © Reuters Just one no-ball, one extra chance for opener Fakhar Zaman was all Pakistan needed to put on arguably the best batting show by any team in this year's ICC Champions Trophy. Pakistan had already won the psychological battle with their batting. The target of 339 runs was never going to be easy for any team, let alone India whose middle-order was yet to get tested in the tournament. I was hoping a team in green and gold would win. Seems there was a mix up in countries though 😉 Well done Pakistan, congrats Mickey — Dale Steyn (@DaleSteyn62) June 18, 2017 And when the pressure was on India, the more experienced side, the Men in Blue crumbled, making a cookie look like the sturdiest object in the universe.

In the end, it was a 180-run victory for Pakistan, an unlikely winner that had pulled off the biggest win in the history of an ICC tournament final.

  19. Photo from Indian media shows disgruntled fans breaking their TV sets in anger. It appears that some Indian citizens have taken their national cricket team's defeat against Pakistan a little too hard. Shocked silence reverberated across New Delhi on Sunday night following the historic upset by Pakistan in the Champions Trophy final at The Oval in London. Delhi's streets were all but deserted after the game ended with fans storming out of public screenings after Hardik Pandya?s 76-run blitz ended with India staring down the barrel at 152-7. "I am shocked... we thought we would have them for dinner, but it has turned the other way," Amit Sharma told news agency AFP at Delhi's Connaught Place. Rishi Kapoor ?concedes?, congratulates Pakistan on victory ?Yes Pakistan, you have defeated us. Well played, outplayed us in all departments! "We had planned big celebrations for what seemed like a sure shot victory for us with the way we were playing and also how Pakistan had just scraped into the final," Sharma added. Disgruntled Indian fans quietly walked away from open air screenings in disbelief. While some fireworks were ignited at the National Stadium near India Gate, Sanjay, a disappointed fan, said they were "fireworks of anger". "A loss against Pakistan is always a bitter pill to swallow. But you have to applaud their brand of cricket and their comeback in this tournament after being crushed by India," Raju Verma, an auto driver, said. Disappointed fans break TV sets in anger Some heart-broken Indian fans responded with anger. India media showed one emotional fan crying as he spoke to journalists after India's defeat at the hand of the Green Shirts. Photos showed others breaking their television sets in anger on the streets of Delhi. The rather extreme reaction, ironically, came after Indian sports journalist Vikrant Gupta claimed that if India loses the match against Pakistan, "at least nobody in India would react by breaking TV sets in anger". Gupta's claim was a jab at emotional Pakistani cricket fans, some of whom have in the past reacted to Pakistan's defeat against India in a similar manner.

Meanwhile, residents of Indian Occupied Kashmir celebrated Pakistan's victory over their arch-rivals with defiant pro-Pakistan chants and fireworks.

"This was long overdue."

Pakistan, the bottom-ranked side in the eight-team event, rode on opener Fakhar Zaman's maiden one-day international century to post 338-4 and then bundled out India for a paltry 158 in 30.3 overs. It was Pakistan's first global 50-over title since the 1992 World Cup.
  20. Pakistan´s players celebrate their victory over India on the pitch after the ICC Champions Trophy final cricket match between India and Pakistan at The Oval in London ?AFP LONDON: Mohammad Hafeez hailed Pakistan´s team spirit as the key to their stunning Champions Trophy final triumph against India. Just two weeks ago, Pakistan were at a low ebb after crashing to a humiliating 124-run defeat against India in the group stage. But Pakistan batsman Hafeez says his team-mates vowed to stick together despite the avalanche of criticism and they reaped the rewards in memorable fashion on Sunday. Gaining sweet revenge over India, Pakistan thrashed their arch-rivals by 180 runs at The Oval to win the Champions Trophy for the first time. "It´s a great team effort. After losing the first game, we had no chance to lose again," said Hafeez, who played an important role in the win with a classy 57 not out. "We showed great character. I´m so happy for the nation of Pakistan who have been waiting for this for a long time." Fakhar Zaman´s maiden one-day international hundred laid the foundations for Pakistan´s formidable total of 338-4. After man of the match Fakhar finished on 114, Pakistan pace bowler Mohammad Amir ripped the heart out of the India batting line-up with the wickets of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli. India, looking to retain the Champions Trophy, went down without a fight as they collapsed to 158 all out and Amir felt his spell was crucial. "Rohit, Dhawan and Kohli have been in tremendous form so I was looking for early wickets -- and I did it," he said. Pakistan´s first global 50-over title since the 1992 World Cup reflected well on their Australian coach Mickey Arthur, who kept his squad from losing focus after their dismal display against the Indians earlier in the tournament. Arthur admitted Pakistan were desperate to prove they could go toe to toe with tournament favourites India with the title up for grabs. "It´s been an up and down ride for us but I´m so proud of the boys," Arthur said. "The whole group kept believing, we knew we were better than what we showed in the first game against India. "That was an aberration. We want to be more consistent as a team. We will work really hard to keep this momentum going."
  21. The date 18th June was being looked upon as one of the biggest days in the history of the sporting rivalry between India and Pakistan. While the cricket teams from both the nations were gearing up for the ICC Champions Trophy final, the hockey teams from the two countries were also looking to renew their rivalry in the Hockey World League Semifinal. However, it wasn't really surprising to witness the Indian fans choosing the cricket match over the hockey encounter with Virat Kohli's men on the cusp of winning the Champions Trophy for a second consecutive time. However, what eventually unfolded at The Oval, didn't just leave the Indian fans red-faced, but a bit frustrated as well. Tipped to overcome Pakistan's challenge in the final, the Kohli brigade failed miserably in an absolute shambolic performance in the final. Chasing a mammoth total of 338, the Indian cricket team was bowled out for a mere 158 runs. Clearly, the Indian fans were miffed, with some of them leaving the stadium much before the game ended. Reuters While Kohli's side was being hammered and staring at a heavy defeat at The Oval, the Indian hockey team led by Manpreet Singh registered their biggest-ever win over Pakistan following a 7-1 rout at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre just 10 miles away.

While the scoreline might highlight India's dominance, it was Pakistan who made a bright start early on but couldn't keep up the pressure beyond 10 minutes. After getting an early chance to take the lead, Pakistan failed to convert a penalty corner that sailed over the bar.

The second half witnessed the same intensity from India who found their fourth goal through Harmanpreet's set piece three minutes later. While India was running riot, Pakistan, too, had their share of chances but they failed to get past an alert kash Chikte who was guarding the Indian goal-post. Twitter/@mansukhmandviya Chinglensana Singh came close to scoring the fifth goal for his side, but he was unfortunately denied by Pakistan goalkeeper Amjad Ali.

  22. geo_embedgallery Who would have believed that new batting sensation Fakhar Zaman would score a maiden century against India in the final of Champions Trophy? But he?s done exactly that and put Pakistan in a strong Position. Fakhar scored 12 fours and three sixes in his brilliant innings and along with Azhar Ali, gave Pakistan an incredible 128-run opening stand. Here are some of the highlights of his innings:

But Pakistan made one change, with the fit-again Mohammad Amir, who missed Wednesday´s impressive eight-wicket semi-final win over previously unbeaten tournament hosts England with a back spasm, returning. Amir replaced fellow left-arm quick Rumman Raees, who marked his one-day international debut with two wickets against England.
