India yet again beats Pakistan for the 7th time in the history of Cricket World Cup. Thanks to Rohit Sharma’s splendid knock of 140 helped team India score a massive 336 runs for the loss of 6 wickets. Alongside Rohit, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli also contributed ( KL 57runs AND Virat 77runs ) to the total helping the men in blue beating Pakistan by 89 runs (DLS).
This victory was celebrated all over the country in India, wishes came from all over the world for the team as they defeated their arch-rivals. In the meantime, even our home minister Amit Shah on Monday congratulated India for its stellar victory.
India’s Unbeaten run in the World Cup
After India put up a mammoth 336/5 batting first, Pakistan’s reply for the total was trembling and indisciplined. In the first 10 overs, Pakistan managed to score only 38/0 which was considered as the lowest powerplay total in the World Cup. Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam looked like taking the fight to India in a partnership worth 104. But on the other side, the Indian bowlers had something else in their mind, they managed to take 4 wickets in the middle over which knocked Pakistan out of the contest.
A short drizzle caused a 40 minutes delay, which made the task much heavier for the neighbors as they had to score 136 runs off 30 balls bb D/L method.
A comfortable 89-run victory over Pakistan in England earned team India opulent praise from Home Minister Amit Shah and other top leaders. He praised the Men in Blue with a tweet which read “Another strike on Pakistan by team India and the result is the same.”
Another strike on Pakistan by #TeamIndia and the result is same.
Congratulations to the entire team for this superb performance.
