Sabyasachi Bagchi, Kolkata: India's two most proudest mothers are probably Kirat Gill and Rita Porel - the mothers of India's two protagonists behind the brilliant win over Pakistan on Tuesday in the ICC U19 World Cup. Shubman Gill has had a fantastic World Cup by any standards, this semi-final Man of the Match award  is his third of the tournament, and he has scored three half centuries along with ton today. On the other hand, Ishan Porel perhaps saved his best for the all important game against the famous neighbours in the semi final where he single handedly destroyed the Pakistani top-order by grabbing 4 crucial wickets in his opening spell to knock them out of the contest.

In an interaction with journalist Sabyasachi Bagchi, Ishan Porel's mother seemed to be very much emotional. Rita Porel is very much a lady who is a bit superstitious on her belief. She was saying, "Yes, I felt that my son got injured in the first game as I couldn't worship to the Almighty before the game. That is why I woke up at 1am at night and did two hours of worship to God. I believe this has been the result of it. It's a proud moment." She added, "He was a bit disappointed in the last couple of days with the way he got neglected in the IPL auction and didn't speak to us as well. I think this performance is the outburst of his anger."

On the flip side, Shubman Gill's mother Kirat Gill too seemed flooded with happiness and emotion. In a conversation with journalist Suman Chakravorty, she said, "It's a very special moment for us as parents. He has been playing really well in the tournament and now just a step away from glory. I will hope that he will replicate this performance in the final as well. He called me after the game and had a five minutes' chat. He was happy, but he knows that he needs to play well in the final."

Irrespective of all matches, the India vs Pakistan matches are always special and such match-winning performances against them in a world cup is no doubt offers an emotional moment to the proud mothers.
