Former India captain and one of the most successful all-rounders, Kapil Dev, has said that it was cricket’s win at the Dubai International Stadium and not India-Pakistan.
Kapil was reacting to the latest game between the two arch-rivals in the Asia Cup 2022. For the record, the Men in Blue thumped Pakistan by 5 wickets.
“I can only say cricket won and it is not India-Pakistan. Match was really fantastic. I think both teams played so well. Team which wins get much more joy while those who lose can say that they’ll try next time. That’s what sport is about,” he told ANI.
Batting first, Pakistan scored 147, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya taking 4 and 3 wickets, respectively.
Chasing 148, India looked in trouble when KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli were back in the pavilion. However, a well compiled partnership between Hardik and Rishabh Pant guided India to a five-wicket win.
