While the capacity crowd at the magnificent Eden Gardens had the time of their lives, as India beat Pakistan convincingly with icons like Sachin Tendulkar and Amitabh Bachchan cheering from the stands, those on Twitter had a gala time, too.
There were a lot of hilarious tweets and Indian fans thoroughly trolled Pakistan fans from across the border. But even here, Chetan Bhagat waded in and managed to get thoroughly burned by a Pakistani fan. How does the guy do it?
Here are some highlights.
2. Honest Modi.
3. Kohli for PM.
