Listen to the news
Pakistan beat India by 10 wickets in the T20 World Cup 2021. This is the first time Pakistan has beaten India in a World Cup. Pakistan openers Babur Azam and Mohammad Rizwan batted brilliantly to chase down the target of 152 not out. Earlier, thanks to Shaheen Afridi’s superb bowling, Pakistan restricted India to just 151 runs. Here we are saying that the Indian team had to face defeat.
Three players cast blue shadows on the Indian team
Only three players from Pakistan picked up the match from the Indian team. First, Shaheen Afridi bowled and took three important wickets to break the Indian batting back. With this, the Indian team was able to score only 151 runs. Babur Azam scored 68 and Mohammad Rizwan 79 to give Pakistan the lead.
Excellent opening partnership for Pakistan
Babur and Rizwan gave Pakistan a good start as they entered the ring with a target of 152 and established a half-century partnership for the first wicket. Both players scored easily. The Indian bowlers, on the other hand, failed to give the first shock to Pakistan. Apart from this, Bhubaneswar and Shami also failed to stop runs in their openers. The Pakistan opening batsmen played an unbeaten innings of 79 and 68 to give their team a massive 10-wicket victory.
Varun Chakraborty Mystery failed
Varun Chakraborty joins the Indian team as a mystery spinner. Opposing batsmen found it difficult to play their deliveries and the selectors expected Varun to take wickets at any time, but that did not happen. Pakistan batsmen played emperor deliveries and made easy runs against him. The emperor initially stopped the run but could not take the wicket. In his last over, the Pakistan batsmen scored a lot and Chakraborty gave up 33 runs in his four overs without taking any wickets.
