The 'Men in Blue' as Team India is called, managed to redeem themselves from a disappointing defeat dealt by England on 30 June. Thus expectedly, the Twitterati were abuzz with congratulatory messages for the cricketers who are being hailed as the toast of the nation.
Team India is set to play their last league game on 6 July against Sri Lanka. However, the match would be a dead rubber as India has already scored 13 points on the table, which is sufficient for a semi-final berth in the World Cup.
