Put into bat first after toss delayed for a long time and match curtailed to 18-overs-per-side, Pakistan managed to put up a paltry total of 118 for five, courtesy to Shoaib Malik’s 26 and Sarfraz Ahmed’s 25. All but Ravichandran Ashwin picked one wicket each for India.
Chasing an all-too-easy, India endured some early collapse, but yet another sensible knock from Virat Kohli while chasing sealed a comfortable victory for MS Dhoni‘s side. No surprise, Kohli was emerged the Man of the Match.
And interestingly, the winning strike yet another time came from Dhoni’s bat. Kohli top scored with 55 not-out off 37 balls. Yuvraj Singh scored 24, while Dhoni hit winning run and was unbeaten on 13 in the end.
