Champions Trophy 2017 was set to witness a high voltage clash as arch rivals India and Pakistan battled it out in London for the coveted title. While India had cruised into the final, Pakistan scripted a dramatic turn around, having been written off before the commencement of the tournament, the dark horses scripted one of the most unexpected turn around to reach the final. And when it came to the big day the Pakistani players played with all their heart thumping India by 180 runs, the biggest margin of victory in a CT final. While India had an off day and were no match for their opponents, we have to credit Pakistan for such a clinical performance. But hey! amidst all the hype, pressure and match moments you just cannot neglect the Twitterati as they went buzzing about the final. Here are some twitter reactions for the match;
Well that’s how Pandya’s lonely fight felt like

When your captain not only stands up during defeat, but also earns respect…
Virat Kohli, full of respect towards arch rivals and victorious opponents today, is such a remarkable ambassador for the game.
