Tables Have Turned: India Faces a Crushing Defeat Against Pakistan In T20 World Cup

India has faced a crushing defeat against Pakistan in the ICC T20 World Cup match on Sunday.

In the first innings, India was able to score a respectable 151 runs with 7 wickets down, but Pakistan's Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan had no problem chasing the target.

Both Azam and Rizwan hit half-centuries with dominating style in the World Cup campaign-opener in Dubai. Chasing a target of 152 runs, the Pakistan openers have looked comfortable as Indian bowlers continued to seek a breakthrough but was unsuccessful.

While Skipper Babar scored an unbeaten 68 runs, Rizwan remained not out on 79.

Virat Kohli scored his 29th half-century in T20Is before being dismissed for 57 by Shaheen Shah Afridi as India posted 151/7 in their allotted 20 overs.

Afridi was on fire as he sent back openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, before Hasan Ali removed Suryakumar Yadav to give Pakistan a great start in the match.

This is the first time Pakistan has beat India in an ICC World Cup match. This is Pakistan's first-ever 10-wicket victory in a T20 International. India have also suffered today their first-ever 10-wicket defeat in T20Is.
