The moment Shahid Afridi's shot off Ravichandran Ashwin's bowling soared over the boundary ropes, entire Pakistan went delirious with joy as fireworks and gunshots were blazing in the air.        

Aerial firing was reported from Quetta, Peshawar, Karachi and even Rawalpindi seconds after Pakistan won the nail-biting match against arch-rivals India.        

Fireworks too lighted the sky as the country erupted in joy. People danced on the streets with Punjabi music being played in the background.        

Like in most cities, there was less than normal traffic on the roads in Islamabad today during the time when the match was being played.        

Special screenings were organized in various restaurants in Islamabad where youngsters watched the encounter on giant screens.
