Summarizing the match, India posted a target of 151 runs on the board where Virat Kohli sparkled with the bat with his half-century. Shaheen Shah Afridi was absolutely stunning with the ball and got under the skin of Indian batters. He caught three big fishes of India while Mohammad Rizwan (79 off 55) and Babar Azam (68 off 52) went on to take Pakistan over the line by 10 wickets with their top-class batting show.

“This was the team’s effort, and the early wickets were very helpful. It gave us a lot of confidence and our spinners were very good as well. We applied our plans and got the results. We, the openers, kept it simple and built a partnership, and because the wicket was getting better so we just wanted to keep batting till the end, which we did. It won’t get easier just because we beat India. We will take the confidence, but we’re taking it one match at a time, and there’s a long way to go in the tournament,” said Babar Azam after the tournament.
