Crucial wicket of Mohammad Rizwan

During the 15th over of Pakistan’s innings, Rizwan, who was holding the innings together with a determined knock, faced a crucial delivery from Bumrah. With the match finely poised and Pakistan needing a steady partnership to chase down the target set by India, Rizwan’s wicket was pivotal.

As Bumrah charged in to bowl, he delivered a well-directed length delivery that stayed low off the pitch. Rizwan, looking to play defensively, attempted to defend the ball. Nevertheless, due to the low bounce and the deceptive pace, Rizwan misjudged the delivery’s trajectory.

The ball skidded through and stayed low, sneaking underneath Rizwan’s bat. As Rizwan failed to connect with the ball, it crashed into the stumps, dislodging the bails in the process. Rizwan’s dismissal proved to be a significant blow to Pakistan’s innings, as he was the anchor holding their chase together.

Hardik Pandya proved to be a potent force alongside Bumrah, claiming two important wickets and maintaining pressure on the opposition. Axar Patel and Arshdeep Singh also chipped in with crucial breakthroughs, ensuring that Pakistan’s batting lineup struggled to gain momentum in their chase of 120 as they ultimately finished on 113/7.
