Dubai: Tonight, a crucial night in Pakistan Cricket History as it defeats India in T20 World Cup first time ever since its inception in 2007 and that too, spectacularly.
Pakistan defeats India for the first time in T20 World Cup and that too by 10 Wickets
It only took 2 of the Pakistan Batsmen to chase the not-so-easy target of 152 runs set by the Indian Team, which crumbled down easily against their attacking opponent bowlers.
As he had talked about the win before the game, Babar Azam put on a spectacular show as he goes on to make 66 of 51balls, not to forget the asterisk with the name. The openers for Pakistan did not give Virat Kohli & Co. a single chance to score a wicket, winning the game with 13 balls left.
The Pakistan Team Captain has proved his words right that this Pakistan team knows how to win a match on the land of Dubai, having the experience of playing for 3 -4 years.
In a seemingly one-sided match, Pakistan’s bowlers brought India under pressure sending the star players back to stands before they could do anything with their bats, Rohit (0), Rahul (3), Suryakumar Yadav (11), Jadeja (13), and Hardik Pandya (11).
Shaheen Afridi, the star bowler for Pakistan, relieved his team within the first few minutes of the game as he was behind, sending India’s openers, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, back to the pavilion.
Mohammad Rizwan not only finished his half-century as the openers but also took the pivotal catch of Virat Kohli as he hit Afrisi’s ball in the air only to land in Rizwan’s hands.
The games of both the teams were seen to be reversed today in Dubai as Pakistan knew their game from start, dominating the ‘powerful squad’ of India.
The Indian fans on the ground saw something unexpected as the team loses to their green opponents, that too, rather harshly.
