It was the most awaited match of the ICC Champions Trophy tournament between India and Pakistan yesterday. The all-round performance of team India is outstanding as they batted well, bowled superbly and not to forget, fielded well.
One of the best opening pairs of Indian Cricket Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan had though started slowly, they capitalized later by rotating strikes, hitting boundaries and allowing the Pakistani bowlers to go under pressure. As Dhawan was in full swing, he was caught at the midwicket playing the full toss of Shadab Khan in 25th over.
Later, skipper Virat Kohli joins Rohit Sharma for a 56-run partnership before Rohit was run out. However, Yuvraj’s experience and his shot selection helped India score big. He scored 53 runs off 32 balls. Later, Hardik gave an unbelievable finish with 3 sixes in the last over of the first innings.
After team India defeated Pakistan by 124 runs, Virat Kohli was asked few questions about the match against arch-rival Pakistan. “The way Yuvi batted, it was the game-changing innings, to be honest. The way he batted was the way only he can strike the ball,” Kohli said.
When asked about Rohit Sharma’s run out, Virat said, “I mean the bat was way past the line, it just bounced and these things happen on the field. There’s nothing I can say more to that dismissal. If you are trying to say it was my fault and laughed.”
