“Punjab Sindh Gujarat Maratha Dravida Utkala Banga,” he added.
Meanwhile, another Pakistani fan wrote: “Hum tou Abhinandan ko bhi chai pilaatay hain, Kohli tou phir humaaray dilon mai rehta hai. Tum saala gora loag humaari jooti ke neechay. (We even offer tea to Indian Air Force’s wing-commander Abhinandan and Kohli (Virat) rules our heart)
“Definitely backing India for two reasons: 1 – they’re neighbours, 2- they’re passionate about cricket,” another fan wrote.
Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli on Sunday acknowledged the support of arch-rival Pakistani fans ahead of India’s World Cup match against England at Edgbaston.
