On Sunday night, Pakistan made history, defeating India by 10 wickets for the first time in the history of the T20 World Cup at Dubai International Stadium.
Pakistan won the toss and opted to field first.
Indian captain Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav (11) tried to bring India’s innings back on track in the powerplay, after early wickets, but Hasan Ali struck in his first over to reduce India to 36/3 in six overs.
Skipper Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan cruised the run-chase without any hassle after they restricted arch-rivals to 151/7.
Chasing 152, captain Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan batted from start to finish as they made India’s ‘world class’ bowling attack look ordinary for once.
