Dubai: The wait was finally over as Babar Azam and his Pakistan team beat India in a World Cup game for the first time ever on Sunday in Dubai. The 10-wicket win was enough for Pakistan to celebrate like there was no tomorrow. While fans took to the streets, ex-Pakistan cricketers also took to social media and hailed Babar and Co.

All of them – from Pakistan’s ex-captain and current Prime Minister Imran Khan to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Ramiz Raja – hailed Babar and Co.

“Congratulations to the Pakistan Team & esp to Babar Azam who led from the front, as well as to the brilliant performances of Rizwan & Shaheen Afridi. The nation is proud of you all,” tweeted Imran as he shared a picture of how he watched the match.

“This was the team’s effort, and the early wickets were very helpful. It gave us a lot of confidence and our spinners were very good as well. We applied our plans and got the results,” Babar said at the post-match presentation.
