Tagging the New York Police Department (NYPD), the Delhi Police post said: “Hey, @NYPDnews, We heard two loud noises. One is ‘Indiaaa..India!’, and another is probably of broken televisions. Can you please confirm?”

Dressed up with trending hashtags on the match, this post has gone viral, with 1 million views, 45,000 likes, and 7,600 reposts. It was immediately met with laughter and appreciation from netizens.

An X user replied: “Hey, @DelhiPolice, You should ask the same question to Pak army as well. Heard some India-India sounds from other side as well and numerous broken TV sets.”

Another user wrote, “Matter of grave concern Delhi Police must investigate this,” and finished with smileys. The India-Pakistan cricket rivalry, one of the most intense in the sporting world, never fails to captivate audiences.
