India is taking on Pakistan in their first game of T20 World Cup 2022.
After winning the toss, India opted to bowl first. Pakistan did not have a good start as they lost their captain Babar Azam in the second over of Arshdeep Singh. After Babar’s wicket, Rizwan also gifted his wicket to Arshdeep.
However, a good partnership between Masood and Iftikhar Ahmed put Pakistan in a good situation. But Shami picked Iftikhar’s wicket and broke the partnership. In the 14th over, Hardik sent two Pakistani batters Shadab Khan & Haider Ali to pavilion.
Hardik after dismissing Haider Ali on the last ball of the over, stared at him with a smile for few moments. Shan Masood who were on the crease since the 2nd over smashed half century in 42 balls and helped Pakistan setting 159/8 score in 20 overs.
