Breaking TV sets, burning posters to crying on roads; How Indian fans found closure after Champions Trophy defeat

While some broke television sets, burned posters of Indian players, many got down on the roads to chant angry slogans against the team.

Unable to chase a mammoth total of 339, India were bowled out for just 158 in the 31st over of the second innings.

While some broke television sets and burned posters of Indian players, many got down on the roads to chant angry slogans against the team.

Infuriated Kanpur fans burned posters of Virat Kohli, Ashwin and Yuvraj Singh among other players, while people in Ahemdabad broke their TVs on roads.

Holy city of Haridwar in Uttarakhand too saw residents uneasy and breaking their TVs amidst angry chants against Indian cricketers.

Meanwhile, security was beefed up at MS Dhoni’s Ranchi residence to quell any attempts of stone-pelting or untoward violence.

On the other hand, youths in Kashmir burst into rapture at Pakistan’s victory in the one-sided cricket final of the ICC Champions Trophy.

At most places the celebrating youths kept bursting firecrackers and dancing on the streets in Farah Kadal and Sekidafar areas of old city in Srinagar. Some exuberant youths threw firecrackers inside a CRPF camp and the local police station.

Even women took to streets at many places in the Valley singing to express joy at Pakistan’s victory against the defending champions.

In villages where the youths could not lay their hands on firecrackers, they beat drums to express their joy.
