Thus, Pakistan’s innings ended after 19.4 overs with 147 runs off of it. Therefore, only the opener Mohammed Rizwan (43) and Iftikhar Ahmed (28) were able to make a significant batting contribution.
Because Pakistani batters were completely overpowered 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), wickets continued to fall frequently.
KL Rahul was dismissed for a duck in the opening over of India’s 148-run chase. Following that, the innings’ driving force was provided by a 49-run partnership between the skipper, Rohit Sharma (12), and Virat Kohli (35) who toiled at the other end. Mohammed Nawaz’s consecutive strikes reduced India to 3/53 and led to the dismissal of both Sharma and Kohli.
After then, the scoreboard was pushed by a 36-run partnership between Ravindra Jadeja and Suryakumar Yadav before Suryakumar was hit out for 18 by rookie Naseem Shah. India came close to winning the match owing to a 52-run partnership between Jadeja (35) and Hardik Pandya (33*). So with two balls remaining, the in-form Pandya hit a six to give India a five-wicket victory.
