On Sunday, India kept its World Cup record against arch rivals Pakistan intact by trouncing our beloved neighbours once more in the largest cricket show on the planet.

In India, 5.9 million people had 16.9 interactions about the match, while in Pakistan 1.1 million people had 3.3 interactions. The match generated a total of 1,694,510 tweets.

On Facebook, Virat Kohli of India and Sohail Khan of Pakistan were the Men of the Match while on Twitter Kohli shared the honours with Misbah-ul-Haq.

On Facebook, the maximum interaction came from Virat Kohli’s post that he was “feeling awesome” and had the “best Sunday ever,” while the Indian Cricket Team’s video of fans going crazy in the stands also got a lot of reach.

On Twitter, Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulating the team on its win was on top followed by tweets from BCCI and Shah Rukh Khan.
