Anushka Sharma Celebrates with Dhanashree Verma After India’s Historic T20 WC Win Over Pakistan


The entire nation was brimming with pride as Team India etched their name in history with a thrilling six-run victory over Pakistan in their high-octane ICC T20 World Cup clash. This match, held at the Nassau County Stadium in New York, saw India defending the lowest total ever in the tournament’s history, a feat that kept cricket fans worldwide on the edge of their seats.

Among the sea of emotions that flowed throughout the match, one of the most heartwarming moments was when Anushka Sharma, the ardent supporter and wife of star cricketer Virat Kohli, was seen overwhelmed with joy following the team’s spectacular win. Anushka, beaming with pride, happily posed for pictures with Yuzvendra Chahal’s wife, Dhanashree Verma, and other friends.

Dhanashree Verma captured this celebratory moment and shared a group picture post-match on her Instagram handle, captioned, “Hum Jeet gaye.” In the picture, Anushka Sharma radiated joy, donning a blue oversized shirt over a white tee, paired perfectly with blue denim, reflecting the Indian team’s colors.

The atmosphere at the Nassau County Stadium was electric as fans broke into energetic dance moves to the sounds of drums, celebrating India’s remarkable victory. Jasprit Bumrah’s stellar performance, with a miserly three-wicket haul, applied immense pressure on the Pakistani batters. This, combined with a counter-attacking, match-saving knock by Rishabh Pant, powered India to a narrow win, keeping their World Cup dreams alive with two more group stage games to go.

The match began with Pakistan winning the toss and opting to bat first. The Indian batters struggled on the challenging surface, with star openers Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma failing to score big, managing only 4 and 13 runs respectively. However, Rishabh Pant’s aggressive 42 off 31 balls, featuring six boundaries, kept India in the game. Useful contributions came from Axar Patel (20 off 18 balls) and Suryakumar Yadav (7 off 8 balls), but the lower middle order crumbled, and India was bowled out for 119 in 19 overs.

Pakistan’s bowlers, particularly Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah, shone with figures of 3/21 each. Mohammad Amir and Shaheen Shah Afridi also made crucial breakthroughs. During the run chase, Pakistan adopted a measured approach with Mohammad Rizwan anchoring the innings with 31 runs off 44 balls. However, key wickets taken by Bumrah (3/14) and Hardik Pandya (2/24) maintained pressure on Pakistan. Despite a late surge, Pakistan fell short by six runs, thanks to Arshdeep Singh’s calm final over.

Jasprit Bumrah was rightfully awarded the ‘Player of the Match’ for his match-winning spell that played a crucial role in India’s victory. With this win, India sits at the top of Group A with two wins in two games and four points. In contrast, Pakistan’s chances of progressing to the knockout stage look slim as they sit in fourth place, having lost both their games to the USA and India.

The celebratory moment shared by Anushka Sharma and Dhanashree Verma post-match encapsulates the joy and pride felt by millions of Indian fans. It highlights not just the cricketing triumph but also the emotional connect and unity that sports bring to the nation.
