IND vs PAK T20 World Cup: Babar Azam, PAK captain, speaks

"This was the team's effort, and the early wickets were very helpful. It gave us a lot of confidence and our spinners were very good as well. We applied our plans and got the results. We, the openers, kept it simple and built a partnership and because the wicket was getting better so we just wanted to keep batting till the end, which we did. It won't get easier just because we beat India. We will take the confidence, but we're taking it one match at a time, and there's a long way to go in the tournament. We prepared well, and just kept the history out of our mind. We needed quality practice, and warm-up matches, and even our domestic tournament and those games gave us a lot of confidence."

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 11:14 PM
IND vs PAK T20 World Cup: Virat Kohli, IND captain, speaks

"We didn't execute properly. Credit where it's due and Pakistan outplayed us today. They started brilliantly with the ball, and 3 wickets for 20 runs was not a good start. We needed wickets early but with the bat they gave us absolutely no chances. It played slow in the first half and hitting through the line was not that easy as it was in the second half, after 10 overs. We needed those 15-20 extra runs an for that we needed a good start but Pakistan's bowling didn't allow us to get those extra runs. We could make the argument of getting in another slower bowler, but it's important to stay composed and understand our strengths because with the dew the slower bowlers couldn't be effective either. This is just the first game of the tournament, not the last."

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 11:07 PM
Shaheen Afridi, Man of the Match, speaks to the broadcasters

"It is the good wishes of my parents and all Pakistanis. Very happy with my performance. The plan was to bring the ball back in. I was just trying to swing it and I was just looking to give the team a breakthrough. That was what I practiced in the nets as well yesterday. Batting against the new ball was tough. The credit goes to Babar and Rizwan for the way they played. All teams are good in the tournament and we will look to carry this momentum through and go to the finals."

India vs Pakistan: WHAT A RUN-CHASE THAT WAS

The monkey is finally off Pakistan's back. After 12 World Cup matches, including 5 in the T20 World Cups, the "Men In Green" have beaten the "Men in Blue"

And they have achieved this feat in very un-Pakistan manner. Usually, they stutter and have a mini-collapse. But Babar (68) and Rizwan (79) couldn't have any better to script this win

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 10:12 PM

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 09:25 PM
Terrific comeback by India

From 6/2, to reach 151/7 is a commendable recovery. When odds await, champions rise. And that's exactly what Virat Kohli did tonight, scoring a fine half-century. It wasn't a fluent innings but one that has given India a total to defend.

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 09:06 PM

SIX! SIX! Pant welcomes Hasan Ali for his second over

1/6 after 1 over. Hasan Ali bowled a great first over.

SIX! WHAT A SHOT FROM PANT! Another one-handed six. He is making a habit of this. Down on one knee, extends his arms fully and tonks it over backward square leg for a maximum.

SIX! ANOTHER ONE-HANDED SIX! I am beginning to believe he actually practices this shot in the next. Overpitched his off-cutter, did Ali. Pant clears his front leg and deposits the ball over the long off boundary for another six.

BRILLIANT OVER FOR INDIA! 15 off it. IND are 81-3 after 12 overs.

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 08:27 PM

He can be express, very express

A top over from Rauf. Gives away just 6 runs. IND are 66-3 after 11 overs

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 08:20 PM

FOUR! Is Pant settled and comfortable? This shot suggests so. From around the wicket, Hafeez angles the ball into Pant after pitching it short of good length. Pant waited for the ball to come onto him, crouched low and used fast, whippy hands to cut the ball through the backward point for 4.


Sun, 24 Oct 2021 08:18 PM

IN THE AIR….AND…SAFE! What was that, Pant? Looked like a tired/half-hearted shot. The ball from over the wicket, angles away from Pant. He goes for a slog sweep and top edges to no man's land at long off.

FOUR! EASY PICKINGS! A GIFT INDIA NEEDED. Tried the wrong one but ended up banging it short and wide of leg stump. Pant, on one knee, guided the ball behind square for four.


Sun, 24 Oct 2021 08:09 PM

India Vs Pakistan Full Scorecard: Hasan Ali is introduced

First bowling change of the night as Hasan Ali is introduced into the attack.

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 07:54 PM

Good tactic from Kohli, as you'd expect from this modern-day great. In order to negate Shaheen Afridi's swing, who is bowling his third over, he is batting from outside his crease. Not deciding to hang back and taking the challenge head on is just typical Kohli.

SIX! YOU KNEW THIS WAS COMING! After facing three dot balls, he makes room, charges down the track and creams the ball over long on for 6. This is a death-overs shot. USUALLY, may I add.

IND are 30/2 after 5 overs.

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 07:53 PM
India vs Pakistan: Suryakumar Yadav looking good

FOUR! He means business, does Suryakumar Yadav. Till the last delivery, Wasim had only conceded 3 runs. On the final ball, SKY brought out his sweep shot and since the fine leg was inside the circle, he was able to thread the gap and find four behind deep square.

IND are 21-2 after 4 overs

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 07:49 PM
India Vs Pakistan T20 World Cup Match Today: A RATHER UNIQUE SITUATION FOR INDIA

The way Indian openers have gone about their business in the recent past, this is an anamoly. But credit where due, Shaheen Afridi is bowling like a dream.

SIX! Just as I was typing the word “dream”, SKY finished the over with a scintillating pull shot for six. Short from Afridi, SKY rocks back onto this backfoot and tonks the ball over deep square leg.

IND are 14/2 after 3 overs

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 07:44 PM

OUT! KL RAHUL IS GONE TOO! SHAHEEN AFRIDI HAS TWO! That is rapid, that is menacing and that was near impossible to play. Once again, from over the wicket, on good length and gets the ball to move in sharply. Like Sharma, KL played across the line and he lost his stumps.

He is gone for 3. IND are 6/2 after 2.1 overs.

Suryakumar Yadav is the new man in

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 07:38 PM
India vs Pakistan T20 World Cup 2021 Live: Imad Wasim sharing the new ball

Babar has gone for spin here. Considering how Moeen Ali of England ran riot against West Indies in the powerplay, this could be a genius move.

A tidy first over from Wasim, concedes just 4 runs from it. He bowled it flat, fast and into the stumps. He didn't allow either Kohli or Rahul to free thier arms. PAK happy to concede the singles.

IND are 6/1 after 2 overs

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 07:37 PM

Virat Kohli, the new man in, gets off the mark on the final ball of the over.

IND 2/1 after 1 over

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 07:36 PM

OUT! THAT'S PLUMB LBW! What a start from Shaheen Afridi. From over the wicket, Afridi bowls it full. The ball moves in sharply and Rohit played across the line. The ball snuck under his bat and rammed into the back leg.


Sun, 24 Oct 2021 07:34 PM
India vs Pakistan: Rahul off the mark

MIDDLES FIRST BALL! A gentle push to cover by Rahul first up. No runs but he middles it. That will make him feel good

OFF THE MARK: India and Rahul are off the mark on the 3rd delivery as he clips the ball off his hips to square leg for a single

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 07:30 PM

Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul have walked out to open.

Team India's Hardik Pandya speaks ahead of the match

"I don't like to get too hyped by the situation, and my family make sure of that too. I stay away from social media because you do get excited and get the vibes. It's simple, and we leave emotions out of the way, and keep things professional. We make sure we tick the right boxes, and do the processes right. The back is fine, it was jittery, but I won't be bowling for now. I want to be able to bowl eventually, closer to the knockouts. The professionals and I both have to take the call about when I can have a bowl"

Sun, 24 Oct 2021 07:11 PM
India vs Pakistan T20 World Cup 2021: IND skipper Virat Kohli at the toss

"We are pretty happy with setting the target. We would have bowled first too, but the toss is not in your control. We are pretty balanced with our squad and you need to be prepared for it. We need to stay as professional as possible. We need to stay focussed on the processes. Everyone watches it closely all over the world. We can use that as a motivation, but we need to ensure we don't get too emotional and need to just stay professional. The pitch looks very different. Evenly rolled and there is no grass at all which was the case during the IPL, and I'm sure that was done to hold it together well for the World Cup. We expect the pitch to stay good all through and set a good total. The four not playing are: Rahul Chahar, Ishan Kishan, Ashwin and Thakur."

IND vs PAK Live: India vs Pakistan battles to watch out for (Part 2)

  1. Babar Azam vs Jasprit Bumrah: The best bowler against the opposition's best batsman is a contest to relish. In the last two T20 seasons, Babar has been Pakistan's most prolific run-getter scoring 1241 runs at an average of 65.3 and with a strike rate of 129.7. Bumrah, on the other hand, has picked 48 wickets at just 17 with a strike rate of 14.4. The two have faced each other in only the ODI format, where Babar has managed 17 runs off 26 deliveries without a dismissal.
  2. Haider Ali, Shoaib Malik vs Varun Chakravarthy, Ravindra Jadeja: Pakistan will have a minimum of eight overs of spin on Sunday leaving their middle-order lineup with a task cut out against the likes of Varun and Jadeja. In T20s since 2019, Haider has shown signs of struggle against left-arm orthodox, scoring at a strike rate of 124.4 with two dismissals but is yet to be dismissed by the right-arm leg break variety against which he scores at a strike rate of 176.7. Malik, on the other hand, averages 37 with a strike rate of 139.6 against left-arm orthodox and scores at a strike rate of 152 against the latter.

T20 World Cup Live Score: IND vs PAK battles to watch out for (Part 1)

  1. Rohit Sharma vs Shaheen Afridi: The Indian opener's struggle against left-arm pace is well documented. In T20s, Rohit averages 21.1 and has scored at almost a run-a-ball rate against left-arm pacers since 2019, among the least against all the bowling varieties. The numbers plummet during the powerplay phase where he averages only 19.8 in T20s since 2019, with a strike rate of 114.5 with four dismissals. In T20I World Cups, he has been dismissed five times by left-arm pacers, scoring only 110 runs at a strike rate of 129.4.
  2. Virat Kohli vs Shaheen Shah Afridi: An early dismissal of Rohit would expose Kohli to the left-arm pace variety, against which he has been dismissed four times in the last two years in the T20s, averaging 28.5 at a strike rate of 128.1. The two are yet to face each other in any form of cricket.
  3. Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav vs Mohammad Nawaz: The presence of five right-handers, if India stick to the same XI, makes the slow-left-arm orthodox spinner in Nawaz a better choice than a struggling Shadab Khan. Moreover, both Kohli and Suryakumar have struggled against the variety - the captain has a paltry strike rate of 94.9 while the latter scores at 6.48 runs per over - the worst against any variety in T20s for both the batsman since 2020.

GAUTAM GAMBHIR: It's not easy to forget the former India opener's match-winning innings during the 2007 T20 World Cup final against Pakistan. He smashed 75, which was his highest score in this fixture. In five matches, he scored 139 runs.

MOHAMMAD HAFEEZ: That's because the only other player is spinning all-rounder Hafeez. In just 7 matches, “The Professor”, as he is fondly called by his teammates, has amassed 156 runs at an average of 26.

IND vs PAK Live Updates: The Hardik Pandya conundrum

All-rounder Hardik Pandya's position in the team is currently under threat. He still hasn't returned to bowling and is slowly crawling back to form with the bat. This poses a problem for India while looking for a 6th bowler. His absence from the ball also means India might have to plaly an extra pacer.

Moreover, he skipped options practice yesterday. Will he play?
