There are very few things in the world that unite people as much as sports. A win of a favourite team or a club unites communities, sometimes even transcending national and linguistic barriers. After all the drama around the high-voltage and emotionally and politically charged India vs Pakistan match in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup is subsiding, an adorable video is doing the rounds on the internet. The short clip has yet again attracted all love and united arch-rivals India and Pakistan in a cute way.
In the video doing rounds on the internet, a little kid could be seen explaining what happened at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday. She said that Virat Kohli and Babar Azam play for the same team and it was actually Kohli who won the match.
The innocent way in which she explains the turn of events of the match has melted the hearts of several social media users around the world and given a much-needed break from the emotional rant from both segments of the fans.
The video was originally shared by Saahil Suhail, who is a journalist based in Srinagar and it is his daughter who is seen talking to him while on a car ride.
"My daughter tells me that @imVkohli & #BabarAzam are bothers and both of them won last night. #IndiaVsPak #Cricket is a game! So, Take it as a game," he wrote as he shared the video.

After the match in which Pakistan handed a comprehensive 10-wicket defeat to India, Team India mentor MS Dhoni was seen interacting with former Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik, all-rounder Imad Wasim, as well as skipper Babar Azam. Meanwhile, heartwarming pictures of Virat Kohli wholeheartedly congratulating Pakistan's Mohammad Rizwan while sharing a hug and wearing a wide smile also grabbed headlines.
Voice of Indian cricket Harsha Bhogle perhaps rightly summed it up while commentating on these visuals when he said, "This is the true story of India-Pakistan cricket outside all the hype and posturing."
While Pakistan have even managed to win their second match against New Zealand on October 26, India will now play the BlackCaps on October 31.
