It was the most eagerly awaited match of the World Cup and the venue -- Adelaide Oval -- was 'under virtual siege' as Indian fans took complete control of the city outnumbering their Pakistani counterparts.

The green jerseys of the Pakistani fans looked like dots in an 'Ocean of Blue'. Indians and Pakistanis also exchanged barbs on the social media.
