 ‘Another stike’

NEW DELHI AFP: India’s powerful home minister Amit Shah hailed the country’s cricket World Cup win over Pakistan as “another strike” -- months after his country launched air attacks over Pakistani territory in an escalation of tension between the two rivals. “Another strike on Pakistan by #TeamIndia and the result is same,” Shah, considered number two in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government, said on Twitter.

“Congratulations to the entire team for this superb performance. Every Indian is feeling proud and celebrating this impressive win,” added Shah, who heads the cricket association in his home state of Gujarat.

India cut bilateral cricket ties with its neighbour after the 2008 Mumbai attacks, with authorities blaming Pakistani militants.
