Imran Khan’s Warm Gesture of Congratulating Indian Cricket Team Wins Hearts On Both Sides Of The Border

Improvement in Indo-Pak relationships has been on the incumbent government’s priority list. While significant steps have been taken to numb this centuries-old rivalry (including the groundbreaking Kartarpur corridor), we must not ignore the smaller gestures that have a big impact as well. The relationship has cost both the countries a lot. According to a report, the rivalry between India and Pakistan costs $35 billion annually.

The report suggests that the trade between the two largest economies of South Asia can grow from $2.1 billion to $36.9 billion if they decide to set aside the differences and open barriers to trade.

A small yet powerful gesture by PM Imran Khan has made waves across the internet, winning hearts on both sides of the border. On Indian cricket team’s historic win against Australia on Monday, Khan not only appreciated the performance but also congratulated the team captain Virat Kohli.

India’s cricket team, after a brilliant performance, secured victory in the four-Test series. Having first toured in 1947-48, this is the first time in 71 years that India won a series in Australia. On this historic win, captain Virat Kohli said that he is confident it will serve as a stepping stone for further games.

“I see this series as a stepping stone for this team to inspire the next lot of Test cricketers” – he said speaking to media.

Imran Khan took to Twitter to appreciate the performance and congratulated the team.

”Congratulations to Virat Kohli and the Indian cricket team for the first ever win by a subcontinent team in a test series in Australia” – he wrote.

The twitter community also celebrated the gesture and called it positive. Here is what they had to say:
