Yesterday was a testing time for both the nations. Be it India or Pakistan.

As the Pakistan Cricket team emerged victorious over defending champions India in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, elsewhere in London the Indian Men’s Hockey team completed a hat trick of wins after a stellar performance over Pakistan yesterday.

While it is an understatement to say that most talked about cricket more and probably weren’t entirely aware of the World Hockey League semi-finals happening almost simultaneously, the unforeseen twist of events sent people on a congratulatory, supportive as well as a ‘change of sports preference’ modes:

Here’s a roundup on some of the tweets and memes that surfaced on the social media sphere:

The sudden realisation of having a sport other than cricket

Celebrities weren’t any far behind

How to channel your anger into something constructive

The people who found the glass half full

And a surge in hailing Hockey as the national sport

A ‘Chak de’ moment

And like they say, you win some and then you lose some. But the true spirit of sport must never die and one should always be in support of our players, be it victory or failure.
