Pakistan fan sings Indian national anthem, wins hearts

Manchester, June 17 (TIWN) Keeping the age-old rivalry aside, a Pakistan supporter was seen singing the Indian national anthem before the two teams crossed swords for their marquee World Cup clash at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Clad in a black t-shirt with the Pakistan flag around his neck, the fan was singing the anthem aloud and even those around him clapped once the anthem got over.   The Sarfaraz Ahmed-led side were brushed aside by all-round India riding Rohit Sharma's 140 to set a target of 337.  Pakistan, in reply, reached 166/6 in 35 overs before rain caused a temporary halt to the proceedings. On resumption, their revised target was 302 and they had to chase it down in 40 overs. Only managing to reach 212/6, they fell to their third defeat of the tournament.
