India has taken the lead of 1-0 in the series by defeating New Zealand in the first T20 match by 53 runs and with this match, an era has came to an end with Indian bowler Ashish Nehra bidding goodbye to cricket.
This match may have been won by India but Pakistani cricket has also got benefit from India’s victory and Pakistan is now number one in ICC T20 ranking. Before this match, New Zealand was at the number one spot with 125 points and Pakistan was at the second spot with 124 points. But after losing this first T20, New Zealand suffered a loss of 4 points which resulted in Pakistan coming at number one automatically.
Pakistani fans also rejoiced after India’s win but they were happy because their team has become number one. Pak cricket followers even took to Twitter to thank the Indian team, however with a touch of humour.
Here are some of the selected tweets made in this concern:
