Mohammad Rizwan, the wicketkeeper and batsman for Pakistan, was ordered back to the pavilion after Babar Azam got a golden duck. The incident occurred at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). With 4 runs scored off 12 balls, Rizwan was eventually out. India’s Bhuvneshwar Kumar took his catch, putting Babar Azam’s team in a precarious position.
Pak vs Ind | Babar & Rizwan’s poor performance upsets fans
Pakistan’s opening combination let down fans who had put their faith in them before the much-anticipated match. As a result of India’s successful bowling attack, Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam was run out for a duck at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
With his first delivery of the second over, Arshdeep Singh bowled Babar (0) out with a full, straight ball that trapped him lbw. Thus, the Pakistani captain rolled his wrists to try to get rid of the ball, but it hit him in the shin.
Babar, one of the best batters in the world, has been an indispensable member of every Indian team he has played for. So, in a nail-biting finish at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, India defeated Pakistan by four wickets thanks in large part to an unbeaten 82 from Virat Kohli, who had one of the most impressive performances in T20 World Cup history.
India had a tough time reaching their target of 160 throughout the game, but Kohli first served as an anchor and then took on the duty of hitting the big knocks, finally leading India to a victory over Pakistan.
Kohli was responsible for 82 of them. As part of the Super 12 tournament, India, captained by Rohit Sharma, will take on Pakistan, captained by Babar Azam, at Melbourne Cricket Ground. India choose to field first after winning the toss and having Pakistan bat.
