As the most hyped match of ICC World Cup 2019 was played between India and Pakistan at Old Trafford of Machester in England on Sunday, both the nations including celebrities who were present at the stadium, cheered for their respective teams. The match was won by Men in Blue by 89 runs but the pictures and videos from the stadium were as much talked about as was the rain-affected match itself. While we saw Bollywood celebrities like actors Ranveer Singh, Saif Ali Khan, Rakul Preet Singh getting the limelight during their presence at the match, there were also some Pakistani artists who have worked in Bollywood, enjoying the match and in the company of Indian celebrities.
