Letter Published in Gulf NewsUAE on 23June 17,Trophy win, a great achievement for Pakistan
The recent thumping victory for Pakistan against India in the International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy and the huge difference in runs was a great achievement for the Pakistan team. Despite winning the toss, Indian captain Virat Kohli should have chosen for batting, allowing Pakistan to chase.
Above all, the top batsmen miserably failed and only Hardik Pandya proved his mettle. The Indian team has completely disappointed millions of viewers and this defeat cannot be digested. I do agree that cricket is a game of luck, but no sincere attempt has been made by the Indian team is my opinion. Kudos to Pakistan team for their excellent performance!
