Pakistan Beats India in High-Voltage T20 World Cup match
Pakistan makes history by beating India in a World Cup match
Pakistan beats India by ten wickets in both teams’ first Super 12 game in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 at the Dubai International Stadium, Dubai.
According to the details, Pakistan openers Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan set up a strong platform in search of a first-ever World Cup win over India. Pakistani skipper Babar Azam played a brilliant knock of 68 on 52 deliveries, while Muhammad Rizwan scored 79 runs in 55 balls.
This is the first ever victory of team Pakistan against India in any cricket World Cup match.
Earlier Virat Kohli produced a captain’s knock to help India recover from a shaky start to set Pakistan 152 to win in the crunch Group 2 game in Dubai.
Kohli’s 57 off 48 deliveries was his 29th T20 half-century for India and his 10th at World Cups, and came at a particularly important time for his team after a fiery opening spell from Shaheen Shah Afridi blew apart the top order.
Afridi produced two stunning deliveries to get Pakistan off to a flier, after Babar Azam had won the toss and opted to bowl first. The 21-year-old’s rocket of a yorker had Rohit Sharma trapped plumb in front for a first-ball duck inside the opening over. The Pakistan left-armer bagged the scalp of KL Rahul in his second over, swinging one back through the gate at high pace to castle the opener’s stumps.
