IND vs PAK: In the Asia Cup 2022 Super Match in Dubai on Sunday night, India was defeated by Pakistan, disappointing the nation’s cricket supporters. In this nail-biting game that went into the final over, Pakistan prevailed by a margin of 5 wickets.
Team India suffered their first loss in the competition. Following their defeat, India’s wicket-keeper batsman, Dinesh Karthik, inspired his team. With one ball remaining, Babar Azam and his side successfully chased down a challenging 182-run target to avenge their loss from the previous week.
With this win, they moved up to second place in the Super 4 points standings, which are currently held by Afghanistan, India, and Sri Lanka. India nearly won the match when they broke the stubborn 73-run third-wicket standoff between Mohammed Rizwan and Mohammed Nawaz.
The Pakistani spinner, who had unexpectedly been pushed up the order, was bowled by Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the 16th over after he had scored 42 runs in just 20 balls and turned the tide for his team. Rizwan’s blazing run came to an end when Hardik Pandya got rid of him for 71 runs on 51 balls.
IND vs PAK: Dinesh Karthik and Rohit Sharma Motivate the Team
The audience remained hooked to their televisions until the final ball in one of the best cricket contests ever played. Dinesh Karthik, a wicketkeeper-batsman, wrote a motivating message in support of his teammates following the five-wicket defeat.
Deepak Hooda was granted the chance to play in DK’s place because he was unable to participate in this game. He didn’t bowl and scored 16 runs in 14 innings. Some of the images he posted from the intense match were accompanied by the message, “Every day may not be our day, but we will stay strong and move on.
After the match, “It was a high-pressure match, which we knew about. You have to be in it every time. Such a match can take a lot. Despite the partnership between Rizwan and Nawaz, we remain calm. But this partnership obviously lasted a little longer and they batted brilliantly. We think the pitch gets a little better in the second innings.” Rohit Sharma said,
In an Asia Cup Super-4 match at the Dubai International Stadium, Mohammad Rizwan scored 71 off 51 balls to help Pakistan defeat India by five wickets as they chased down a total of 182. Babar Azam (14) was removed by Ravi Bishnoi in the fourth over, giving Pakistan a rocky start. Fakhar Zaman also failed to make an impression as Yuzvendra Chahal dismissed him with a score of 15.
After that, Rizwan and Mohammad Nawaz formed a key partnership and scored 84 runs together for the third wicket. Rizwan (41) and Nawaz (41) were both bowled quickly one after the other by Hardik Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, respectively. Bhuvneshwar let the contest slip away from India as Pakistan needed 26 runs off the final two overs and he gave up 19 runs in the penultimate over.
Earlier in the ongoing Asia Cup Super-4 match against Pakistan, Virat Kohli shone with the bat as India scored a solid total of 181 for seven in 20 overs. With Rizwan striking the opening ball for a boundary and Babar Azam adding another one in the first over, Pakistan has made a great start in the chase. Off just 44 balls, Kohli smashed a magnificent 60, including four boundaries and a six. Kohli hit a six over deep midwicket to reach the 50-run milestone.
He was ultimately run out following a direct hit from deep by Asif Ali. Earlier, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul got things going well, scoring 54 runs in the first five overs. However, India dropped a number of wickets, slowing their progress in the middle overs. Ravi Bishnoi hit two crucial boundaries, but Fakhar Zaman also contributed to India’s successful finale to their innings. Pakistan had previously won the toss and chosen to bowl.
