England crowned T20 world champions after final victory over Pakistan; Indians shower hate memes

With the win, England became the first ever men’s team to simultaneously hold both the ODI and T20 world titles.

A patient, gritty innings of an unbeaten 52 by Ben Stokes took England to their second T20 World Cup win, this time against Pakistan on Sunday at the MCG. After restricting Pakistan to a below-par score of 137/8, England had a shaky early start, losing Alex Hales, Phil Salt, and the dangerous Jos Buttler inside the Powerplay. Pakistan fought hard but in the end, didn’t have enough runs on the board as Shaheen Afridi hobbled off in the slog overs, unable to complete his quota of overs.

With the win, England became the first ever men’s team to simultaneously hold both the ODI and T20 world titles. As for Stokes, the England all-rounder registered his first half-century in the T20 format.

Seeing Pakistan on the losing side brought the Indian cricket Twitter alive as the desis came out to avenge the humiliation they had faced from the arch-rivals online after Rohit Sharma’s team recorded a 10-wicket defeat to England in the semi-final encounter.
