Gambhir takes a jibe at Mirwaiz, suggests him to ‘cross the border’

Gautam Gambhir, the opener for Indian cricket team has taken a jibe at Mirwaiz Umar Faoooq after the later congratulated the Pakistan Cricket Team on their victory over Team India in the ICC Champions Trophy final held on Sunday.

Gambhir who was suspended for four matches by Delhi cricket board after a tussle between him and Delhi coach KP Bhaskar in March this year suggested Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to pack his bags and cross the border to go to Pakistan.

Gambhir tweeted, “A suggestion @MirwaizKashmir why don’t u cross the border? U will get better fireworks (Chinese?), Eid celebs there.I can help u wid packing.”

Farooq had earlier tweeted, “Fireworks all around, feels like an early Eid here. Better team took the day. Congratulations team #Pakistan.”

Mirwaiz, a few days back too, had cheered for the Pakistan Cricket Team after their win over England in the first semi-final match of the ICC Champions Trophy.

The chairman of Hurriyat Forum tweeted, “As we were finishing taraweeh, could hear the fire crackers bursting, well played team #Paksitan. Best of luck for the finals!”

This tweet of his earned the ire of many, including political leaders, who asked the media and the people to ignore the comments made by ‘anti-national elements like him.’

Pakistan yesterday came out with a splendid all-round performance as they defeated arch-rival India by 180 runs at The Oval to lift their maiden Champions Trophy title.

Chasing a challenging total of 339 runs, India bowed down before the Pakistani bowlers and got all out for a mere score of 158 runs in 33.3 overs.
