Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets in one of the matches of the ICC T20 World Cup. The Men in Green defeated the arch-rivals for the first time in the history of the global event of the shortest format.
Entire Pakistan came out on the streets to celebrate the triumph of the Babar Azam-led team in Dubai. Former Pakistan cricketer and the leading cricket expert Shoaib Akhtar took to Twitter to upload one of the videos of the celebration.
“Scenes across Pakistan. What happiness this country is experiencing right now,” he wrote.
Mohammad Rizwan (79 not out) and captain Babar Azam (68 not out) struck superb unbeaten half-centuries and eased Pakistan to 152-0 in 17.5 overs in Group 2 of the Super 12s.
Fast bowler Shaheen Afridi (3-31) had earlier rattled India’s top order by removing both openers — Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul — in his first two overs before skipper Virat Kohli’s 57 off 49 balls took the 2007 champion to 151-7.
