There has long been a saying:
Pakistan is run by three As
It has been proven true yet again. In some ways the developments have been pretty positive for both US & India - they get to consolidate a military leadership they're willing to work with vis-a-vis Afghanistan or Chinese influence, we get a civilian leadership we're willing to work with (Sharifs).
The biggest looser in all this? The Chinese.
Their civilian pawn (PTI/Imran Khan) has been ousted, their military pawn (Faiz Hameed) has been prevented from attaining power. China found out for the first time the grip the US govt. has on the Pak establishment/deep state. Their hard-earned "all-weather ally" has gone running back into American hands.
