India beat Pakistan by 6 runs in T20 World Cup


NEW YORK: India beat Pakistan by six runs in the T20 World Cup 2024 Group A match at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York.

Pakistan bowled out India for 119 in 19 overs as Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf took three wickets each. Rishabh Pant top-scored for India with 42 off 31 balls.

Muhammad Rizwan top-scored with 31 in the chase but Jasprit Bumrah’s 3-14 secured the Player of the Match award.

India won their opening fixture against Ireland at the same venue.

Pakistan lost their opening match against tournament debutants and co-hosts USA in a shock result.

The match that everyone in the cricketing world had circled on their calendars ended up delivering a thrilling contest!

India, despite a subpar total of 119 on a tricky wicket, managed to beat Pakistan by six runs.

Pakistan, who looked in complete control in the first half of the innings, began to lose their way in the second.

Through a combination of disciplined bowling, ill-advised shots and dot ball pressure, their innings began to unravel.

This result now leaves them in a situation where they must win against both Canada and Ireland in order to have a chance at qualification into the Super Eights stage.

Mind you, USA and India both have four points after their two games, so they will certainly have something to say about that.

We hope you enjoyed this iconic matchup, and till the next time, this is Rohan Sharma, Kevin Hand and Hafsa Adil signing off for media.
