It was a top moment for Pakistan cricket. On Sunday, the side annihilated India by ten wickets in Group 2's Super 12 stage of the ICC T20 World Cup at the Dubai International Stadium. As a result, Pakistan notched up its first-ever win against India in the tournament and any World Cup.


It was a top show by the Pakistanis who had produced some brilliant bowling display, while India could manage 151/7. In reply, the Pakistani openers Mohammad Rizwan (79*) and Azam (68*) got the job done single-handedly, as Pakistan won the clash with 13 balls to spare. While Pakistan won a T20I for the first time by this margin, India suffered a same-margin loss for the first time.
