Pakistan Defeat India Once Again in 2021 | U19 Asia Cup:
To make 2021 better, Pakistan ended the year with defeating India yet again in International Cricket. Pakistan put up a great display of cricket in the World T20 2021 and to end the year on a high, they defeated the arch rivals yet again; this time in the Under-19 Asia Cup.
Pakistan began quite dominantly with Zeeshan Zameer ripping through the top order of the Indian side. India were restricted to 96/5 but the rescue mission happened and India ended at 237. Zeeshan Zameer was Pakistan’s best bowler with a five wicket haul.
Pakistan lost their opening wicket without any run on the board. But Maaz Sadaqat and Muhammad Shehzad put up a partnership of 64 runs to get Pakistan out of trouble. But Pakistan is known for collapses during run chases and that’s exactly what happened today. Pakistan were 159/5 at the end of the 29th over. However opener Muhammad Shehzad was still there keeping the hopes alive for Pakistan.
After Shehzad was run-out for 81, Ahmed Khan and Rizwan Manzoor played good cameos of 29 each to guide Pakistan over the line on the last ball of the match. Muhammad Shehzad was awarded Man of the Match for his 81(105). Pakistan are still undefeated in the event, as they defeated Afghanistan in the first game and India in the second.
