So pakistan was dismissed for 147 runs in 19.4 overs to start the game. So only opener Mohammed Rizwan (43) and Iftikhar Ahmed (28) were able to contribute much with the bat.
Therefore, wickets continued to fall frequently as pakistani hitters were absolutely outclassed by the pace and short deliveries of Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4/26), Hardik Pandya (3/25) and Arshdeep Singh (2/33) and Avesh Khan (1/19).
India’s 148-run chase began with KL Rahul being out for a duck in the first over. Following that, Virat Kohli (35) and the captain, Rohit Sharma (12), labored at the other end and put up a 49-run partnership, which served as the innings’ driving force. Sharma and Kohli were both dismissed as a result of Mohammed Nawaz’s twin strikes, which reduced India to 3/53.
After that, a 36-run partnership between Ravindra Jadeja and Suryakumar Yadav advanced the scoreboard before Suryakumar was struck out for 18 by youngster Naseem Shah. So thanks to a 52-run partnership between Jadeja (35) and Hardik Pandya (33*), India came close to winning the game. The in-form Pandya smashed a six with two balls left to give India a five-wicket victory.
Nawaz (3/33) and Naseem Shah (2/27) of Pakistan’s bowling team gave excellent performances, but not enough to win.
Pandya was named “Man of the Match” for his all-around effort.
