Pakistan won from India after 12 matches. Captain Babar Azam and opening partner Mohammad Rizwan in an enthralling partnership chased the target of 152 flawlessly without losing a wicket with India scoring 151/7.
Team India Captain Virat Kohli was also seen having a chat with both Pakistan openers and appreciating them for their performance.
The Pakistani cricketers also took selfies with MS Dhoni – the internet was flooded with their photos where he was seen interacting with all the players.
Babar said in an interview that their plans were well-executed and the early wickets they took were very helpful. He also stated he wasn’t thinking about the record that has been going on for so long, and wanted to give their best.
It was Pakistan’s biggest victory by winning a match by 10 wickets ever seen in T20 World Cup. On the other side, India faced the backlash of losing the game with such a big margin for the first time.
Before 2021, Pakistan first won a match against India in T20 World Cup was 2007 and in 2009 as well.
Virat Kohli on the other hand said in the interview that when a team loses 3 wickets, it is difficult to come back and also that the tournament has just begun and there is a long way to go.
