Gautam Gambhir reacting first among the cricket fraternity to the news of Indian Air Force barging into Jaish-e-Mohammad training camp comes as no surprise. The former Indian captain was pretty vocal during the whole course of this traumatic and sensitive period and was palpably elated after the Indian Armed Forces reciprocated brilliantly on Tuesday.
At around 3.30 AM on Tuesday, the Indian Air Force personnel broke into the Pakistani territory and blasted the largest training camp of Jaish-e-Mohammad, which led to the death of over 300 terrorists according to reports. This attack jeopardizes the negotiations proposal by PM Imran Khan and the coming times are going to be very critical on the border.
Gautam Gambhir reacted just a couple of hours after the incident took place and seemed pretty elated with this astronomic effort from the Indian Air Force personnel. The whole of India was mourning the death of 40 CRPF jawans who sacrificed their lives in the Pulwama attack on 14th February and this reciprocation came in as a huge sigh of relief for the Indian public.
Gambhir wrote in his tweet, “We decided the time, we decided the place and we have decided the fate.” Prior to this, Gambhir had also urged the Indian government to give a cracking response on the battlefield on the day of the Pulwama attack and he along with many other Indians got their wish granted.
Here’s what Gambhir tweeted.

India-Pakistan World Cup tie in further jeopardy
After the Pulwama attack, the Indian public and BCCI were very keen to boycott the clash against Pakistan in the World Cup, but no decision was eventually taken. After today’s events, the future of this clash is in further danger.
All this while, the protest was coming from the Indian side to boycott the World Cup game but there’s a potential situation where both sides might want to back out. If ever that happens, India and Pakistan might share a point and it will be interesting to see what decision BCCI takes in this regard.
