No rivalry in cricket has ever been as enthralling as the India Pakistan cricket encounters especially in during World Cups and other major ICC tournaments. The same excitement surrounded the India Pakistan clash in the semifinals of the Under 19 World Cup.
India thrashed Pakistan by not just a few runs but by a mammoth margin of 203 runs to storm into the finals of the ICC Under 19 World Cup 2018. As India gave Pakistan a stiff target of 273 to chase, the neighbors got all out for just 69 runs and became the butt of Twitter jokes.
Batting first India gave Pakistan a target of 273 as Shubhman Gill clobbered a brilliant century to see his team reach 272. Prithvi Shaw chipped in with a knock of 41 and stitched an 89 run opening partnership with Manoj Kalra who scored 47. In the lower middle order Ankul Roy played a handsome cameo of 33.
Shubhman Gill has been in sensational form throughout the tournament. He completed his century in the last over of the innings and remained unbeaten on 102 from just 94 balls. This batsman is surely taking long strides in international cricket. People have already started to hail him as the ‘Next Virat Kohli’ given the similarities in their batting styles.
This is one of the biggest victories ever as Indian bowlers did the rest in the second innings. For India Ishan Porel was the pick of the bowlers as he picked up 4 wickets for 17 runs. Pakistan was bowled out for just 69 in 29.3 overs as India registered a historic and an authoritative win.
TWITTER IS SAVAGELY TROLLING THE PAK TEAM FOR GETTING JUST ’69’
Twitter is at its sarcastic best yet again as they take sly digs at the Pakistan team for getting all out for 69. Twitter calls it a perfect position for the Pakistan team as the Indian team got on top of it. The Pak team is being roasted badly for making exactly 69 runs which as we all know happens to be a sex position.
Here is how Twitter roasted the Pakistan team

India beat Pakistan by 203 Runs in U19 W.C.Semi Final. Pakistan 69/10.
No one scored more than 18 runs in this Pakistani innings. I hope they understood the meaning of "Under-19" cricket correctly. #INDvPAK #ICCU19WorldCup @cric_blog
