Sad end to a great run in the tournament. India looked the best team in the tournament. Yet, on the day when they had everything going for them by way of winning the toss and having the drop on Pakistan, they threw it away.
The bowling was awful, with only Bhuvi and Pandya redeeming themselves. The pressure was too much for Bumrah while Ashwin and Jadeja were pedestrian. Indian batsman too didn’t come up with the best throwing away early wickets.
Only Hardik Pandya stood strong but suffered a miserable fate.Pakistan came into the match seeded last and lost their very first match with a big margin against the same opponent. However, since that game, everything went their way and they produced some amazing performances which have landed them in a glorious position. Cricket is a game of uncertainties and this tournament just proved it and Pakistan surely deserves every bit of it.
