Sharing the spine-chilling video on Twitter, Mumbai Police wrote, “The country and anthem we all rise up for. #JaiHind #TeamIndia #IndVSPak2022”.

In the clip, Indian fans were seen singing the national anthem verse while waving the Indian flag high. The voices of around 90,000 Indians just filled the Melbourne Cricket Ground. This electrifying atmosphere not only left Indian cricket captain Rohit Sharma teary-eyed but also gave goosebumps to everyone online.
Meanwhile, coming back to the match, India was in deep trouble after losing 4 wickets in just 6.1 overs, however, a century partnership between Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya kept the team’s hopes alive. Kohli played an unbelievable knock of 82 runs and stayed unbeaten till the end. The victory of Team India was sealed on the final ball of the game with Ravichandran Ashwin hitting the winning runs.
After the win, speaking at a press conference, India skipper Rohit Sharma hailed his bowlers, saying the starting of the match against Pakistan felt like a “Test match”.
“I felt really good. That felt really good. We spoke of certain things in our team meetings and stuff like that. We spoke of how we want to utilise our bigger boundary and try and challenge the batsmen a little bit. You’ve got to sometimes understand what the pitch is doing, as well. That back of a length, slightly back of a length, slightly full, was not easy to hit, and what happened in today’s game will tell you that,” Rohit Sharma added.
