Rate this post

World cup fever 2015, the crucial match between India and Pakistan, Sunday morning.. what an ultimate combination to keep the eyes glued to the idiot box. Everyone stood still to watch the match ball-by-ball and the match fever was so much so loud that its affect could be easily seen on the social networking sites with people posting comments for the two teams playing against each other.

India vs Pakistan match is all the more hyped-up and crucial with the spectators of both the countries anticipating to win over each other every-time. The matches even though are played in healthy sportsmanship spirit but still that zing factor is added especially when it is India vs Pakistan.


People celebrated the V-Day a day prior to the nail-biting match. While Indians celebrated the V-Day in its true sense only after the match. Interestingly, V-Day refers to the Victory-Day for all the Indians who were celebrating the big win in all forms. Besides the orthodox form of beating drums (dhols), bursting fire-crackers, shouting and hooting, something that came across very evidently was that people conveyed their emotions by reflecting them on social networking sites.

The anthem to win was so much so hard that ‘Wont Give It Back’ could be seen and heard since 4 years back India bagged the ICC World Cup Championship trophy. This anthem became viral and instilled in a feeling of strong motivation that will remain there as the zeal and vigour to keep the precious World Cup Trophy with the last time winners is quiet strong. The sheer willpower and determination of the players was backed by strong motivation which resulted in the clear win of India over the competing team Pakistan.

With every minute postings on Facebook, tweets on Twitter cheering the respective teams, the cricket fever was surely at its all time peak. Expressing their thoughts on social networking sites is a great way to cheer the teams and showcase the love and support to them.

The big win saw very important contribution from Indian cricket team’s Vice Captain Virat Kohli.  India beat Pakistan not only in the match but also on the social media.

Conveying his heartiest wishes to the entire Indian cricket team, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also tweeted to congratulate them on their big win. #‎WontGiveItBack‬ ‪#‎IndvsPak‬ ‪#‎CWC15‬ were some of the most commonly used Twitter hashtags that conveyed how the Indian felt like.  The match generated a total of 1,694,510 tweets.
