Pakistan hammer India at T20 World Cup

ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai
India 151-7 (20 overs): Kohli 57 (49), Pant 39; Shaheen 3-31

Pakistan win by 10 wickets

Pakistan hammered India by 10 wickets to claim a famous win over their great rivals at the Men’s T20 World Cup in Dubai.

Chasing 152, Mohammad Rizwan made an unbeaten 78 and captain Babar Azam 68 not out as Pakistan registered their first win over India at a World Cup.

Both players leapt into the air after Azam hit the winning runs before the team came together to celebrate a famous night in Pakistan’s cricket history.

Virat Kohli had earlier made 57 to anchor India in their 151-7, despite a thrilling 3-31 from fast bowler Shaheen Afridi.

It is the first time Pakistan have won a T20 by 10 wickets – and the first time India have lost one by such a margin.

There was a packed stadium in Dubai for the first meeting between these two sides since the 2019 World Cup.

Bollywood stars and former players were among the crowd, who never let up on the noise.

They saw Pakistan produce a brilliant batting performance to stun India, one of the tournament favourites, and overturn their long history of losing to India at major events.

Pakistan shared a huddle at the end of the innings as they soaked in what is a remarkable win.
