Hey folks! Here comes the biggest contest of the T20 Asia Cup 2016 between India and Pakistan, which is not just watched by the cricket lovers, but also watched by all of those who don’t know any big knowledge about the cricket game. Well, the importance for this contest is too much and sure, everybody knows that how tough it goes between these two teams and it is always a thrilling contest to watch! Let’s see which team got the victory this time and how tough it was! Scroll down.
In this 4th match of the tournament, India won the toss and elected to field first. Now it was all about the batting-side of Pakistan, but well, it was worse you can see by them when their wickets were going down one-by-one, too earlier. Maybe, it was all because of the pitch conditions. It wasn’t a batting pitch at all, because no Pakistani batsman stayed and showed up his game. India did really well to restrict Pakistan at 84 runs which was sure a very big disappointment for all the Pakistani fans. But Indian fans rocked it when they saw how India is making it a piece of cake for them. In 20 overs format, it is really a difficult task for the bowlers to restrict the opposition to a very low total, but Indian bowlers done it extraordinarily. Pakistan gave the target of 85 runs for chase to India. Let’s see how it worked for them in the chase!
Well well well, in the 2nd innings, the conditions took a big turning point for India as Mohammad Amir, the best Pakistani bowler took 3 early wickets in the game. It was a very big pressure on India because Pakistan made a really good comeback. But Virat Kohli was the man who read the conditions which were truly crucial and exactly he played his wonderful knock in such a pressure cooking situation. But no doubt, Pakistani bowlers worked wonderfully well and for a moment, it seemed like India is not gonna chase such a very low total. But it was Virat Kohli who batted fantastically. He is a classy player, no doubt, and he took the game to the victory. India won the match by 5 wickets. Folks! What a contest it was… WOW! 🙂
