Speaking to ANI, Khanna said, “It is a big victory. Series of India’s win over Pakistan continues. The performance of the Indian team in the Asia Cup has been magnificent. The way our team is playing so confidently, I’m certain that the day isn’t far when we get the Asia Cup home.”

Khanna also praised India’s stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma and opener Shikhar Dhawan for their brilliant batting performance against Pakistan.

“The opening pair is emerging out as one of the best opening pairs in the world,” he added.

Sharma and Dhawan stitched together an impressive 210-run partnership at the top as their side notched up a convincing win over Pakistan with 63 balls to spare.

The 210-run partnership between the two was the best opening stand by India against Pakistan. It was also India’s biggest win in terms of wickets against Pakistan in One-Day Internationals.

Soon after the Indian team defeated Pakistan, cricket fans all over India were seen bursting firecrackers as a mark of celebration.
