In reply to India’s 336/5, Pakistan has been so steady on their run chase. Despite losing Imam-Ul-Haq in the very initial stages, the right foundation was provided by Fakhar-Babar combo. Both of them batted their heart out to make sure that Pakistan would break their jinx of not winning against the Indian side in the World Cups.

The 104- run partnership between Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman created some dull faces across Indian fans at the stadium and the social media. Kohli’s efforts to rotate the bowlers weren’t yielding successful results.

Adding an insult to the injury, Bhuvneshwar Kumar was even ruled out of the game as he wasn’t comfortable with his left hamstring. Things proved to be a bit complex when things weren’t going on India’s side.

As a double delight, Pandya’s over reaped rewards as he dismissed Hafeez and Malik in successive deliveries. He didn’t even give them some time to settle at the crease and removed Malik for a golden duck. It is to be noticed that Malik hasn’t been at his best in this tournament as he registered his second duck of the tournament.
