T20WC: India Beat Pak by 4 Wickets

What an insane finish here. India have somehow pulled out victory! The Rohit Sharma led India went up against Babar Azam’s Pakistan in their Super 12 match at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground. Winning the toss, India put Pakistan in to bat first. The men in green finished their quote of 20 overs at 159/8, courtesy of fifties from Shan Masood and Iftikhar Ahmed as well as some late hitting from Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf.

Karthik added a single, before Virat claimed a couple of runs. Then came the ball that changed the match, a six no ball for seven runs from Virat.

Virat Kohli played one of the memorable innings in the history of T20 World Cup as he played an unbeaten knock of 82 as India defeated Pakistan by four wickets in a last-ball thriller at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. India were in trouble throughout the chase of 160, but Kohli first played an anchor role, and then he took on the mantle of hitting the big ones, and in the end, it was his class that helped India triumph over Pakistan. Earlier, Arshdeep Singh and Hardik Pandya took three wickets each as India restricted Pakistan to 159/8 in 20 overs.
