T20 World Cup: India lose to Pak by 10 wickets

India crumbled to a 10-wicket loss to arch rivals Pakistan in their opening match of the Super 12 stage of the ICC T20 World Cup. The only silver-lining for the ‘Men in Blue’ was a gritty knock from the blade of captain Virat Kohli. Kohli led from the front to take Team India to a total of 151/7 against Pakistan in the Super 12 fixture of the ongoing T20 World Cup in Dubai on Sunday. The Indian skipper scored 57 runs off 49 balls after Pakistan pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi dismissed Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul for cheap. Surya Kumar Yadav looked lively but was soon dismissed by Hasan Ali, reducing India to 31/3. Kohli and Rishabh Pant added 53 runs for the fourth wicket, before the latter was dismissed on 39 (30) by Shadab Khan.

Ravindra Jadeja then joined Kohli in the middle, with the pair stitching together 41 runs for the next wicket. Jadeja and Kohli were eventually dismissed by Hasan Ali and Afridi, respectively.

Hardik Pandya (11) gathered some much-needed runs to take India past the 150-run mark. For Pakistan, Shaheen Shah Afridi was the pick of the bowlers as he returned with figures of 3/31.

Apart from him, Hasan Ali bagged a couple of scalps while Haris Rauf and Shadab Khan took a wicket each. Meanwhile, Mohammad Hafeez and Imad Wasim went wicketless for the Green Army.

Pakistan openers Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan hardly broke any sweat as the duo chased the target down, remaining unbeaten on 68 and 79 respectively to power the team home.
