India Vs Pakistan Champions Trophy 2017 Final : Twitter in unforgiving mood as India faces Pakistan

India Vs Pakistan Champions Trophy 2017 Final : Twitter in unforgiving mood as India faces Pakistan
Written by Aiman

When India closed in on Bangladesh yesterday, defeating them by a comfortable margin of 9 wickets and 10 overs, they set up an unlikely and historic clash with arch rivals and neighbours Pakistan in the finals of the Champions Trophy 2017. This is the first instance that cricket’s most feared rivalry has been set up on the final of a major ICC tournament, something that the fans were praying for hard apparently, as was evident from the trending tweets on Twitter after India sealed their place in the final yesterday.

There was also much grumbling and ranting about the semi-final lineup – India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, clubbed with former colonial masters England – and Twitter was in no mood to let that go, with plenty of hilarious tweets highlighting the issue for our knowledge.

The victory over Pakistan in the opening match of the tournament for both teams has given Indian fans a special cockiness, as is apparent from the mood on Twitter.

The match itself is scheduled to take place on Father’s Day, and plenty of parody accounts and celebrities have taken to light hearted banter where they have styled India as the father and Pakistan as the child, in a somewhat crass reference to the Partition of pre-independence India.

 

What happens ultimately is between the cricketers who will clash at the Oval on Sunday, and it promises to be an exciting encounter as both teams will be charged up. A win will give India their fourth Champions Trophy crown, they have won in 2000, 2002 and 2013 previously. India definitely walk into the match as somewhat favourite to win, with their batting and bowling departments looking stronger than ever. Pakistan’s batting has looked weak in the previous matches, and they have done well to balance that with some sensational pace bowling, which India would have to watch out for. However, the mood of the fans is quite unforgiving, as can be seen from the trending tweets which border on the vicious, and each team would be under tremendous pressure to win when they turn out for their respective countries on Sunday.
