Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan took to Twitter to congratulate Virat Kohli and his team for creating history in Australia. He congratulated Kohli and Co for becoming the first sub-continental country to achieve this feat Down Under. Kohli and his team beat Australia 2-1 to become the first Asian country to beat Australia. Imran, who has travelled in that country exactly knows how difficult-a feat it is as Australia is a dominant force in international cricket.
Imran took to Twitter and his post read, “Congratulations to Virat Kohli and the Indian cricket team for the first ever win by a subcontinent team in a test series in Australia.”
Now Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran has led his country to their maiden World Cup triumph in 1992 in the same country, following which he became a national hero.
It is heartwarming to see the Pakistan PM acknowledge the feat as India and Pakistan do not have good diplomatic ties. Such gestures certainly go a long way in bridging the tension between the two neighbours.
