Lucknow:There were celebrations all the way for the victorious Team India as they celebrated the 22nd birthday of Robin Utthapa in style in Lucknow.
The two teams arrived at the Sahara Shahar after the match.
Indian players including skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni attended the party, organised at the main hall of the Sahara Shahar.
Pak players skipped
However, Pakistani cricketers stayed away from the birthday party, leaving room for speculations whether it had a connection with the on-field verbal duel between Gautam Gambhir and Shahid Afridi.
Heated arguments were exchanged between the two, when Gambhir was batting and Afridi bowing during the third ODI in Kanpur, which Pakistan lost by 46 runs.
The Pakistani players went straight to their rooms after arriving in Lucknow.
When asked about their absence, a senior Sahara official said that the players were very tired.
"They are here to relax and enjoy they must have been very tired," he said.
