Chasing 192 to win, India displayed complete command to win the game in the 31st over. Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli were out for 16 runs each.

Pakistan earlier committed hara-kiri when they lost 8 wickets for 36 runs. At one stage the men in green were coasting at 155 for 2 and on course to make over 300 runs. Mohammad Siraj got the huge wicket of Babar Azam when he bowled the Pakistan skipper for 56.
Jasprit Bumrah did more damage when he bowled Rizwan for 49 which left the Pakistani wicket-keeper shocked. Kuldeep Yadav ran through the two dangerous Pakistani middle-order batters to change the course of the game.
Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya also picked two wickets each to help India bowl out for 191. One must not forget the captaincy of Rohit Sharma who kept changing the bowlers at regular intervals to unsettle the Pakistanis.

इसे हराना नहीं, छीछालेदर करके हराना कहते हैं। पाकिस्तान को पिछले मैच की परंपरा जारी रखते हुए इस बार की ये हार हमास के अपने आतंकी भाईयों को समर्पित कर देनी चाहिए। इससे उन आतंकियों का मनोबल भी बढ़ेगा कि वो अकेले नहीं हैं जो ठोके जा रहे हैं।— 💃Naina rajpurohit 💃 (@nainapurohit143) October 14, 2023
