India defeated Bangladesh with a comprehensive nine-wicket margin to storm into the final of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. Even though a confident yet humble Indian skipper Virat Kohli said, “We didn’t expect to win by nine wickets, but that’s the quality of our top order”, it seems fans knew about this victory all along. After Pakistan’s impressive eight-wicket victory against England in the first semi-finals, it was only fair, that India set the target high. After all, it’s not every day these two teams play each other.

While on Twitter the battle of the arch-rivals had begun on Wednesday, even before India won today’s semis, we have to wait until Sunday to actually witness the epic clash.

As soon has India’s terrific three — Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan — secured the total, Indian fans just couldn’t handle it. In fact, they just needed to decide what made them happier — defeating Bangladesh by a great margin, or the excitement of an India-Pakistan final. The arch-rivals had last locked horns in a final at the 2007 T20 World Cup, so it’s understandable why people can’t keep calm.
