T20 World Cup: Pakistan Pacers Dismiss India For 119 In New York Mega Clash

OB Bureau

New York: Indian batters came a cropper against Pakistani pacers in their high-voltage ICC T20 World Cup here on Sunday.

Asked to bat first in a rain-delayed match, India were bowled out for 119 in 19 overs.

On a tricky pitch where strokeplay wasn’t easy, the Indian stars cut a sorry figure with only three of them reaching double digits.

Rishabh Pant top-scored with a chancy 42 and Axar Patel – surprisingly promoted to No. 4 – made 20 after skipper Rohit Sharma (13) flattered to deceive.

Virat Kohli (4), Suryakumar Yadav (7), Shivam Dube (3), Hardik Pandya (7) and Ravindra Jadeja (0) had no clue about how to tackle the Pakistani pace quartet.

Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf finished with identical figures of 3/21, Mohammad Amir bagged 2/23 and Shaheen Shah Afridi 1/29.

It’s a must-win game for Pakistan after having suffered a shocking defeat at the hands of rookies USA in their opener.
