Google CEO Sundar Pichai in awe of India’s win over Pakistan, takes cheeky dig at troll
Former Indian captain Virat Kohli led from the front to score a match-winning 82 runs off 53 balls.
Pichai is an avid cricket fan, something he has proven in the past with the appearances he made at games as well as through his tweets.
Wishing everyone a happy Diwali, the Google chief executive said he celebrated by watching reruns of the last three overs of the nail-biting India-Pakistan clash, which India won on the last delivery of the game.
“I celebrated by watching the last three overs again today, what a game and performance #Diwali #TeamIndia #T20WC2022”, read Pichai’s tweet. The game was one to remember for a long time as it kept swinging from one team to another, particularly in the last three overs, before India sealed the deal.
Happy Diwali! Hope everyone celebrating has a great time with your friends and family. 🪔 I celebrated by watching… https://t.co/rhRGbXVuPz
