Melbourne Cricket Ground is hosting the IND vs PAK match. Despite the expectations, the match has been a thriller up to this point. With India chasing 160 runs, they’ve lost four wickets for 31 runs in the seventh over while chasing 160 runs. The wickets of Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav and KL Rahul were accounted for by Haris Rauf for a total of 4 by Naseem Shah.
It was a controversial decision by Mohammad Rizwan to give Axar Patel run out when the ball didn’t enter his gloves. Despite replays showing that Rizwan dropped the ball before removing the bails, the third umpire gave Axar out.
After removing Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan cheaply, Arshdeep Singh proved Rohit’s call to bowl first was right. After 20 overs, Pakistan reached 159-8 thanks to half centuries from Shan Masood and Iftikhar Ahmed.
