Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya Rescued Indian Team After Early Setbacks

Chasing 160 runs to win, the Indian team found themselves in a challenging situation at 31/4. However, Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya steadied the ship with their crucial partnership. The two Indian batters attacked Mohammad Nawaz to change the momentum.

Pakistan skipper Babar Azam’s strategic move to reintroduce his pacers proved effective. With India needing 48 runs off the last three overs, the right-handed batter managed to strike three boundaries against Shaheen Shah Afridi, providing a glimmer of hope for India.

Pakistani bowler Haris Rauf conceded three runs from the first four balls of the penultimate over. Kohli smashed back-to-back sixes off Rauf’s last two balls of the 19th over. The right-handed batter played a ridiculous shot over Rauf’s head for a six on the fifth ball.

Mohammad Nawaz was tasked with defending 16 runs in the final over of the match. Nawaz delivered for his team by dismissing Hardik Pandya on the first ball. However, Kohli hit six off a no-ball and three byes off a free hit, shifting the momentum in India’s favor.

Ravichandran Ashwin held his nerves as he struck a composed shot over mid-off on the final ball, clinching a dramatic victory in a high-octane encounter. Kohli’s stellar performance and Ashwin’s decisive shot sparked jubilant celebrations among the Indian team.
