ICC T20 World Cup 2024: India once again defeated Pakistan in the World Cup

India once again registered an impossible win over Pakistan in the World Cup. In a T20 match, there was a challenge to not let a team like Pakistan score 120 runs. Team India did it. This is a record win. Never before had India defended such a small score in a T20 International.

After India victory, the names of Virat or Rohit are not resonating. The heroes of victory have changed. Now there is talk of Rishabh Pant's unusual batting. Bumrah's bowling has surprised. One over of Akshar Patel became the winning factor.

This match was played at Nassau Stadium in New York, where the pitches have become a nightmare for the batsmen. 5 matches have been played in Nassau, including the India-Pakistan match. Of these, 3 matches have been won by the chasing team, while only two have been won by batting first. India is also included in these.

Match Winner - Bumrah

Bumrah clean bowled Rizwan on the very first ball of the 15th over.

12 balls left and 21 runs. Iftikhar and Imad Wasim were playing. Rohit called Bumrah to bowl. Bumrah gave only 3 runs. Dangerous batsman Iftikhar was out. After this Arshdeep had to bowl. He got 18 runs for his over. This over of Bumrah had turned the match around.

Rishabh Pant dangerous batting and good keeping

During India's batting, the Nassau pitch started showing its mood right from the beginning. Virat had returned to the pavilion. Rishabh Pant came to the crease in the second over. Rohit Sharma was also out in the third over. The conditions were difficult. Pant started batting in his own style. He fell down and hit a shot, played a switch hit. 3 catches were also missed, but Pant knew that it was important to score runs fast on the Nassau pitch, because batting would get difficult later on. Thanks to Pant's 42 run innings, India reached 119.

Axar Patel important role

When Team India was in trouble, 2 wickets fell for 19 runs. Then Axar Patel stopped the dangerous balls. Supported Rishabh Pant and made an important partnership of 39 runs. Scored 20 runs. When he came to bowl, he kept the Pakistani batsmen tied. Gave only 11 runs in 2 overs and took the wicket of Usman Khawaja.

The 16th over was amazing. Pakistan needed 37 runs in 30 balls. Gave only 2 runs in 6 balls and the pressure on Pakistan increased. After this over, the Pakistani team came under pressure, because now they needed 35 runs in 24 balls.

Arshdeep Singh brilliant last over

In the last over, Pakistan needed 18 runs to win. Created pressure by taking a wicket on the first ball. Did not let a boundary hit on the second and third ball. Naseem Shah hit a boundary on the fourth and fifth ball but Arshdeep kept his composure. Pakistan needed 8 runs to win. Arshdeep had to bowl only wides and no-balls. Arshdeep bowled a low full-toss on the off stump, only one run was scored. Pakistan lost the match by 6 runs.
