Pakistan Changes History By Beating India in T20 World Cup

Babar Azam becomes highest T20I scorer from Pakistan

Web Desk — Finally Pakistan re-writes history by beating India with 10 wickets in a T20 World Cup match.

Captain Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan crushed the Indian side on Sunday to register their first win over their arch-rivals in the Twenty20 World Cup.

The opening pair were comfortable from the start, easily facing the Indian bowlers while pursuing a 152-run target.

The victory is extra special for Pakistan as it is their first over India in a World Cup event, bringing an end to a losing streak that started in 1992. Since then, Pakistan has faced India in 12 World Cup encounters — 7 in 50-over contests, while another 5 in T20 World Cups. While one match (in 2007) ended in a tie, India were awarded the game through a bowl-out.

However, with this victory, Pakistan has officially ended a 29-year-old losing streak, and opened their 2021 ICC T20 World Cup campaign with a comfortable victory.

Teams

Pakistan: Babar Azam (capt), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, Hasan Ali, Haris Rauf, Shaheen Shah Afridi

India: KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (capt), Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Varun Chakravarthy, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah
