Stars React to Pakistan’s First Ever Kabaddi World Cup Title

Pakistan has finally managed to win their first-ever Kabaddi World Cup title after suffering losses in four consecutive finals at the hands of India. Fittingly, Pakistan defeated India at home to clinch the prestigious trophy this time around.

The successful event also gave out a strong message to the world that Pakistan is safe for sports.

After squash, hockey, cricket, and snooker, Pakistan has now done it in kabaddi. The grand finale attracted an electric crowd in Lahore’s Punjab Stadium as Pakistan took on India in the all-important clash of the rivals on Sunday.

Looks like February is a not a lucky month for India (pun intended). Pakistan captain, Muhammad Irfan aka Manna Jutt, is a Pakistan Air Force officer, according to some reports.

After a see-saw battle, the Green Shirts managed to finish 2 points clear of India, winning the final by a scoreline of 43-41. It was a come-from-behind victory for Pakistan, taking the defending champions by surprise.

Social media was, and still is, abuzz with messages of love for theย pehlwansย who didn’t disappoint. It was also the first time Pakistan got to host the mega event. Let’s have a look at some of the tweets from politicians, celebrities and cricketers, congratulating the team on their impressive win.
