ISLAMABAD: Nationwide celebration were observed as the Nation joyously celebrated Pakistan’s crushing victory over their West Indies rivals, pushing the National Cricket Team into semi-finals, right on Pakistan Day.
According to details, immediately following the final winning boundary, the entire Nation burst into tumultuous joy, by converging on major roads and highways of Country, and celebrated the historical victory in their traditional ways.
The traditional Bhangra dance was enjoyed on the beat of local drums (Dhol) while the female fans of the game and team also celebrated the occasion with great zeal.
Fans exchanged congratulatory SMS (short message services) and telephones, while sweetmeats were also distributed.
Pakistan weren’t going to ease their way to the target and after two overs had 25 on the board – it had taken West Indies until the 12th over to reach that point. Hafeez rode on the confidence of his bowling display, but some of the bowling served up was as bad as the earlier batting. A couple of tough half chances were spilled without affecting the result.
The victory means their first journey to India since 2007 to face either the co-hosts or defending champions in Mohali. Pakistan won’t care who the opposition are, it will take an exceptional performance to stop them.
