“It is always a special match when India and Pakistan play. Not just people in Pakistan and India, but people from all over the world are watching. That is what makes the occasion special. The value of an India vs Pakistan match is that of a final and players try hard to do well in this match.
“Pakistan has won today and there is no feeling like it,” Rizwan said.
“My captain and I planned to target the new bowlers, score runs against the new ball, and have one of us bat a long innings.” He was attempting to be easy, as Pandya stated in the previous match. I was also attempting to be gentle. I attempted to capitalize on any loose bowling.
“We knew that our batting depth and power-hitting gave us the confidence to hit 45-48 in the final four overs.” “There wasn’t a lot of panic,” he added.
There is a chance that the two teams will meet in the Asia Cup final in 2022, but for that to happen, India must defeat Afghanistan and Sri Lanka in their remaining Super 4 matches. Pakistan will also look to win their next two games in order to advance to the final.
