Shreyas Iyer reached his half century while also hitting the winning runs.
India’s captain Rohit Sharma seemed to have continued where he left off in the match against Afghanistan, as India stormed to a 191 all out lead over Pakistan in their pursuit. In their 56-run partnership, which came in just 42 balls, he scored 39 runs off 24 balls with Virat Kohli. In his first inning since returning from dengue, Shubman Gill got off to a strong start. Before falling to Shaheen Afridi, he scored 16 runs off of 11 balls. Before losing to Hasan Ali and leaving Shreyas Iyer in the middle with Rohit, Kohli was also playing well.In this tournament, Rohit went on to lose out on a second straight century, eventually falling for 86 off 63. Shreyas Iyer reached his 50th run in the process of hitting a four, which was the winning run.
Earlier, India bowled Pakistan out for 191 after mounting an incredible comeback in the middle over. Pakistan lost eight wickets from 155/2 for just 39 runs, with Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Siraj, and Ravindra Jadeja taking two wickets apiece. When Mohammed Siraj and Hardik Pandya eliminated the Pakistan openers with two quick hits, Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan formed a partnership that appeared to be rather dangerous for India.
However, Pakistan lost momentum after Siraj got the captain of Pakistan to play on, breaking the 82-run partnership. After bowling Iftikhar Ahmed around the legs, Kuldeep had Saud Shakeel out LBW. Bumrah dismissed Shadab Khan in the next over after dismissing Rizwan with a peach-bowled over. Pakistan’s slide persisted, and in the end, they were completely out for 191.
