Captain Virat Kohli-led team beat its arch-rival Pakistan with 89 runs in an ICC World Cup match at the Old Trafford in Manchester, England, on Sunday.
Apart from Amit Shah, several other leaders also congratulated team India over its 89-run victory. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said that India played an amazing game and he was proud of the men in blue.
Former sports minister and BJP MP Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore hailed India's unbeaten record over Pakistan in World Cup.
The Congress party also congratulated the Men in Blue for its stellar performance. "Congratulations team India for incomparable victory against Pakistan. You continuously made the country feel proud. Thank you!," a tweet from the party's official handle read.
India, who have never lost a World Cup game to Pakistan, then produced an excellent effort in the field, with Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya and Kuldeep Yadav claiming two wickets apiece to reduce Pakistan to 212 for the loss of six wickets at the end of a rain-affected game.
