But then only, a video went viral that proved that cricket is just a game not a war between the two countries. In video, players from both the team were spotted sharing good moments. And now this moment has been termed as the ICC's 'best moment of the year'.

During that time, all the players including skipper Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh were standing with Pakistani cricketers and there was no tension in the atmosphere. On the field, the players from both the teams were laughing by cracking jokes with each other. Kohli also said that only one team had to win.
