IND vs PAK Brief Report:

Arshdeep Singh was asked to defend 17 runs in the last over and he did an amazing job. He gave away just 11 runs to ensure a six-run victory for the Indian cricket team. Arshdeep also dismissed Imad Wasim in the first delivery of the over to end up with the figures of 1/31 in his four overs.

Earlier in the game, the Men in Blue didn’t get off to an ideal start after being sent into bat by Pakistan captain Babar Azam. Superstar batters Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma failed to make it big on a slugging New York pitch and were dismissed after scoring just 4 and 13 runs, respectively.

Rishabh Pant played a crucial knock of 42 runs in 31 balls, with six fours. He formed crucial partnerships with Axar Patel (20 in 18 balls, with two fours and a six) and Suryakumar Yadav (7 off 8 balls). However, the lower middle order bundled up and India was bowled out for 119 runs in 19 overs.
