Soon after India’s Cricket World Cup dream was shattered by New Zealand in the tournament’s semi-final round, residents of Srinagar in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) could not hide their joy and took to streets to celebrate the defeat Wednesday night.

The Indian team who were widely seen as one of the favourites to lift the trophy were bundled out for 221 at Old Trafford with Matt Henry’s bowling spell wreaking havoc on their batting top order.

Message that India sent out but everyone missed during England defeat

Videos and images soon vent viral of the people of Srinagar setting off firecrackers and chanting slogans against the Indian regime in the war-torn valley.

Social media reacts

Twitterati also went into overdrive following the Men in Blue loss with users trolling Indian team’s captain Virat Kohli saying: “Kohli tujhse nahin hota chase.”

While others poked fun at the team’s wicket keeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni who was run out in the match in the semi-final drawing comparisons to Indian fighter jets shot down by the Pakistan Air Force in the Pakistani territory in February by saying, “Two lines India crossed that they will never forget.”
