Just after the match outcome, Umar tweeted:

A few days back, Farooq had cheered for the Pakistan Cricket Team after their win over England in the first semi-final match of the ICC Champions Trophy.
Hurriyat Forum chairman also tweeted, “As we were finishing Taraweeh, could hear the firecrackers bursting, well-played team #Paksitan. Best of luck for the finals!
This tweet of his outraged many, including political leaders, who asked media and other people to ignore the comments made by `anti-national elements like him.` This is not the first time Gambhir is sighted tweeting against the Kashmiri separatist but is often seen pulling them down prior to this final match as well.
Seems like the match is over but the game is still going on.
