Pakistan are celebrating their famous win over India in the men’s T-20 World Cup.

As the group two match was on, fans watched the game in restaurants, shops and in cinemas.

When the winning moment came, people took to the streets to celebrate.

Pakistan's prime minister, the cricket legend Imran Khan, tweeted his congratulations.

Pakistan hammered India by 10 wickets, chasing down a target of 152.

Mohammad Rizwan made an unbeaten 78 and captain Babar Azam 68 not out as Pakistan registered their first win over India at a World Cup.

Both players leapt into the air after Babar hit the winning runs before the team came together to celebrate a famous night in Pakistan's cricket history.

Virat Kohli had earlier made 57 to anchor India in their 151-7, despite a thrilling 3-31 from fast bowler Shaheen Afridi.

It is the first time Pakistan have won a T20 by 10 wickets - and the first time India have lost one by such a margin.

There was a packed stadium in Dubai for the first meeting between these two sides since the 2019 World Cup.
