Yes, we are all-set for the ‘mother of all battles’ on Sunday. Pakistan take on arch-rivals and defending champions India for the title bid. The match will be played at the Oval, which is a good hunting ground for team India. India are defending its title and are the more fancied team to win it, going by current form which is sublime. India defeated Bangladesh even without breaking a sweat or flexing a muscle by 9 wickets. India’s star batsman Rohit Sharma got to an unbeaten ton and Virat Kohli too remained not out on 95. With Indian batsman in rich form, the task will be cut out for the Pakistani bowlers who have shown they have a potent bowling outfit that can decimate the best of line-ups.
Social media has already gone in frenzy once they came to know the two finalists. India already got the better of them in the league stage, where they defeated Pakistan by 124 runs. In the meanwhile, the nawab of Najafgarh has come out and taken to social media. It seems even after retirement, he does not fall short when it comes to entertaining his fans. He has an opinion on issues ranging from politics to cricket. A wide range, one must admit.
After India won against Bangladesh Virender Sehwag took to Twitter and congratulated Bangladesh for putting up a good show. He touted the Bangladesh team as the grandson of India. He then went on to refer to Pakistanis as the children and as it is Father’s Day on the 18th of June, the day of the finals. He feels that the father, that is India in this case will hammer its kids and show them who is the real dad. It is all right to speak like that provided people take it on a lighter note.
Well tried Pote. Great effort to reach semis.Ghar ki hi baat hai.
Father’s Day par Bete ke saath final hai. Mazaak ko serious mat liyo bete.

His tweet read, “Well tried Pote (grandchild). Great effort to reach semis.Ghar ki hi baat hai (It’s all household matter). Father’s Day par Bete ke saath final hai. Mazaak ko serious mat liyo bete. (On Father’s Day, India will play their son (Pakistan) in the final. It’s a joke, don’t take it seriously!)”
