Rizwan resists but pacers bolster India to bowl out Pakistan on 147

DUBAI: Indian pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya breathed fire as they decimated the Pakistan batting attack with a disciplined display despite the retaliation from wicket-keeper batter Mohammad Rizwan in the high-octane clash of the ongoing Asia Cup 2022.

After winning the toss, India invited Pakistan to bat first in the most-talked clash of the ongoing Asia Cup 2022.

Pakistan were off to the worst possible start, as the side lost their key batter, Babar Azam, cheaply for 10 amid a slow start.

Left-handed batter Fakhar Zaman then put on a brief partnership with Mohammad Rizwan and took Pakistan close to the fifty at the brink of the powerplay before the former fell victim to a short ball for 10.

Rizwan then joined hands with Iftikhar Ahmed and started the recovery with a 45-run partnership for the third wicket. Iftikhar was looking solid and was scoring at a quick pace before another short ball did the trick for India and he walked back to the pavilion after scoring 28.

Following his departure, Rizwan’s stay also remained brief as he too, perished courtesy of a short ball from Pandya in the 15th over. He remained the top-scorer for his side with 43 off 42 balls, laced with four boundaries and a six.

The Green Shirts then began to lose wickets at an alarming rate and were soon slipped to 128/9 in the 19th over.

Shahnawaz Dahani’s quickfire cameo of 16 runs off just six deliveries, however, bolstered the side to amass 147 before being bundled out in the final over.

Bhuvneshwar led the bowling attack for India with four wickets, while Pandya followed back with three. Arshdeep Singh, on the other hand, bagged two wickets.
