On 18th June, Pakistan defeated India in the ICC Champions Trophy final. On the same day, India attained victory over Pakistan in the hockey match in the Hockey World League semi-finals by 7-1. Both the matches were played in London.
Sania Mirza who is married to a Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik, took to Twitter to congratulate both the teams. She wrote: “India lost the cricket but won in hockey against Pak. Congratulations Team India and congratulations Team Pakistan! Sport is a great leveler!”

But as Twitter has a tradition to troll everyone, people started trolling her for being diplomatic. Check out some of the reaction:

*सानिया कब की खुशखबरी सुना चुकी होती….*
