Indian cricket team chants slogan from anti-Pakistan movie
The Indian team broke into the chant after thumping New Zealand
WELLINGTON: The Indian cricket team broke into a chant from an anti-Pakistan movie after their series victory against New Zealand, on Sunday.
Ever since 1967 when India started touring New Zealand, this was the first time that the boys in blue have beaten the Kiwis with such a huge margin, 4-1.
The fifth ODI victory was a special one for Kohli’s boys as they came from down under to beat New Zealand.
However, after they got their hands on the trophy, the men in blue shouted a chant from an anti-Pakistan Bollywood flick ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’.

“How’s the Josh?”, “High sir” was the chant. The slogan has become quite popular after the Vicky Kaushal-starrer Bollywood movie released.
A couple of Indian politicians and celebrities have also used the chant, which has gained traction with the Indian masses.
“Coming here and beating New Zealand 4-1 is a massive achievement. They play very good cricket, so it is a great take away for us. Last time we were thrashed 4-0. We didn’t have a point to prove but we just wanted to play good cricket, which we have been doing for the past 8-10 months now,” said Rohit Sharma after winning the match.
