Football might the most followed sport in the world, but the tables are turned when the arch rivals and possibly the best batting team and the best bowling team face each other. Yes I’m talking about India vs Pakistan. Not only in Cricket but in any sport, whenever the two countries are playing, the world is following the game closely. India vs Pakistan rivalry has been intense and has been going on for quite sometime now. The clashes have give us a lot of memories which come alive the moment we hear about India vs Pakistan and one of them is Sachin Tecndulkar hitting Shoaib Akhtar for a six over third man in 2003 world Cup.
With the emergence of Twitter and the hashtags, India vs Pakistan rivalry is now happening virtually too. With various hashtags: #IndvPak, #PakvInd, #IndiavPakistan and others, the fans are rooting for their favorite team. Fans from both the countries are at it much before the game beings. For example you can see that it’s about 2 in the afternoon and #IndvPak is already trending on Twitter even though the match is 4 hours away ! There are different types of fans you will find on Twitter. Some for whom #IndvPak is life and for others, well there are no other people ! For instance you can have my conversation with this gentleman on Twitter who was deeply rooting for Pakistan to win.
