Pakistan journalist, who wanted to trade Virat Kohli for his national team, got trolled on social media for expressing her desire after the opening clash between the two rivals in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017.

While rain interrupted the game more than once and damped the spirit at the Edgbaston stadium, there was no dampening the spirit of India vs Pakistan on Twitter. Fans came out in large numbers from both the countries to express emotions during the clash.

One of the fans was a Pakistan journalist Nazrana Gaffar who posted a series of tweets during and after the match to show her frustration as India thrashed their arch rivals and won the game by 124 runs. One of her tweets went viral when she said that India can take all their team but give them Virat Kohli in return for a year.

Many from across the border responded to the Pakistan journalist, one of them going ahead and saying that Pakistan is obsessed with ‘K’ but they would neither get K’ashmir nor K’ohli.

Gaffar, who tagged rain as the Man of the Match, also tweeted “Dear Pakistan groups of players – at least pretend that you are trying to win. Pathetic performance as ever.”

Yuvraj Singh and Virat Kohli half centuries helped India to make 319/3 in 48 overs. Pakistan in return only managed to make 164/9 in 33.4 overs, losing the first match of the tournament by 124 runs.

    Don't worry Nazrana Ghaffar. stan had great players like SARFRAZ NAWAZ, IMRANKHAN, WASIMAKRAM, ZAHIRABBAS, RAMEEZ RAJA, JAVADMIANDAD,INZAMAMULHAQ in the past. It is only a lean period and some great players will come up in course of time. You know once West Indies ruled the Cricket World but now they have not qualified for the tournament. Just wait and give moral support to players and don't let them drown by your comments. From the heart of the cricket lover.

        Muslims of India lets unite and rebel against the Indian state. The Indian cricket team is kafir. Let's not support India. Let's drown all the Hindus of India in Indian ocean.

            kohli is nothing if pak want to win . you have no cricket sense. if pak can beat south africa then they can easily beat india. only needs some changings that we made in against south africa. as a cricket player i m not seeing india is better than pak. if india better then how they lost 72 matches from pak. lolz . and i know may be this guy who tweeted is anti . if he is not then i think he got very less knowledge actually how cricket teams stands.

                  Oh yes, you are the great masters of cricket and all the rest are just minnows compared to the mightiest green caps! Everything is rigged I tell ya! They were 'planted' as number 8th seed in the tournament, in a tournament of 8 nations......ohh see, India got so lucky! Our 12th player, "rain" tried all his best, but got sunned out, but SA wasn't, haha! See our 12th man is just like the team's 12th finger
