Yesterday, Babar Azam became the first captain to lead Pakistan to a win over India in the world cup. Pakistan displayed complete dominance in the game on Sunday, winning by ten wickets. Shaheen Afridi (3/31) provided the much-needed start to Pakistan, dismantling the Indian strong batting lineup and sending openers quickly.
He claimed the in-form Rahul, Rohit, and the most important, Virat Kohli. The Indian skipper got out for the first time against Pakistan in the world cup. Virat remained unbeaten in all the previous three outings. Getting Virat out after 226 runs is something Pakistan will cherish for a long time.
After winning the toss, Pakistan opted to bowl, and the decision worked in favor of Babar Azam as Shaheen Afridi got the initial breakthrough early in the match. Pakistan bowlers mounted pressure on India regularly and successfully restricted India at 152.
Chasing 152 for victory, Babar Azam(68) and Rizwan(79) steered Pakistan home with 13 balls remaining. Indian bowling couldn’t trouble Babar and Rizwan as the openers remained unbeaten and guided the team to a historic win. Shaheen Afridi was declared Man of the Match for his splendid bowling that brought the match in their control. India will face New Zealand in their upcoming match.
