After Mohammad Amir accounted for Pant and Ravindra Jadeja (0) off successive balls, India were reeling at 96/7. Ind vs Pak World Cup 2024



The Indian men’s cricket team scripted an incredible turnaround to beat arch-rivals Pakistan by six runs in its second ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 Group A match at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on Sunday.

After a rain-interrupted start, India’s innings suffered two early blows as both Rohit Sharma (13) and Virat Kohli (4) departed early. India were struggling at 19/2 at the stage.

With the Nassau County pitch, damp from the preceding showers, offering a lot of purchase to the bowlers, Rishabh Pant and Axar Patel (20 off 18) lived dangerously but managed to string together a partnership to steady the ship before Naseem cleaned up Axar’s stumps.

While Rishabh Pant continued to try and play his natural aggressive game at one end, India kept leaking wickets from the other as Suryakumar Yadav (7) and Shivam Dube (3) departed in quick succession.

After Mohammad Amir accounted for Pant and Ravindra Jadeja (0) off successive balls, India were reeling at 96/7.

Hardik Pandya, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj also failed to mount a late surge as India’s innings wrapped up for 119 in 19 overs.

Jasprit Bumrah provided India with an early breakthrough by removing Azam (13) in the fifth over. Usman Khan (13) and Mohammad Rizwan took Pakistan past the 50-run mark before Axar trapped the former LBW.

Pant’s fantastic catch to help Hardik remove Fakhar Zaman from the board opened up a crack of opportunity for India. Bumrah’s reintroduction in the 15th over stretched it even wider as the Indian ace knocked over Rizwan’s middle stump with the first ball

With 37 to get from the final five overs, the match was only slightly tilted towards Pakistan due to their wickets in hand.
