India extended their T20I winning record against Pakistan in a low scoring match at Mirpur Dhaka. India’s bowling attack comprising of Ashish Nehra, Japrit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya bowled outstanding spells that bundled out Pakistani batting line up for 83 runs.
But, India’s chase suffered a hiccup after Mohammad Amir’s fiery spells ripped apart India’s top order. But Virat Kohli’s class and dew factor played key roles in India’s five wickets victory.
Amir’s fast and furious bowling spells shattered Rohit Sharma, Ajnikya Rahane and Suresh Raina. But, the early finish of Amir’s four overs left other Indian batsmen to exploit the situations and chased down the target tin 15.3 overs. Captain MS Dhoni hit a winning stroke.
But during the match Umar Akmal’s throw, in an attempt to run out Virat, passed meters way from the non-striking end wickets and hit the thigh of umpire Sharfuddoula. It was painful, but he continued to officiate the match after a few seconds.
Watch the magical spell of Mohammad Amir against India in #AsiaCup.
