In a gripping low-scoring match at the T20 World Cup 2024 in New York, India narrowly defeated Pakistan by 6 runs om Sunday to extend their dominance in World Cups.

 Following a rain delay, Pakistan chose to bowl, limiting India to 119, with Rishabh Pant leading the scoring at 42 off 31 balls, supported by Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf who each took three wickets.

Pakistan's innings started cautiously, with early reprieves for the openers, but Jasprit Bumrah’s exceptional 3/14 and Hardik Pandya’s 2/24 brought India back into the game.

The match culminated in a tense finale where Arshdeep Singh defended 18 runs in the last over, clinching the win for India by six runs.

Here’s the timeline of how IND vs PAK panned out in New York-

IND vs PAK Highlights: Kohli and Rohit Depart Early

India's innings under murky skies opened with skipper Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli at the helm, cautiously scoring eight runs in the first over of Shaheen Afridi.

But the heavens opened briefly, pausing the play. When the skies cleared, the game quickly took a turn as Naseem Shah claimed Kohli for just four runs in the second over.

Rohit tried to anchor the innings but his effort was cut short when he was caught in the deep for 13, leaving India teetering early on.

IND vs PAK Highlights: Axar and Pant Steer Through Turbulent Waters

With the openers back in the pavillion sooner than expected, it was a surprise move to see Axar Patel promoted to number four. Joining forces with Rishabh Pant, the duo began the arduous task of rebuilding.

They knuckled down, steering India to a respectable 50/2 at the end of the powerplay. Together, Axar and Pant wove a 39-run stand, showing signs of revival until Axar was bowled for 20, setting the stage for Suryakumar Yadav's entry.

IND vs PAK Highlights: Collapse Ensues as Naseem, Amir, Rauf Turn the Screws

Pant continued his valiant effort at the crease, but support was thin on the ground. Suryakumar Yadav's stint was brief, contributing just seven runs before Haris Rauf dismissed him.

Shivam Dube’s innings was ended at three by Naseem, adding to the mounting pressure. Mohammad Amir then returned with a vengeance, dismissing the well-set Pant for 42 and Ravindra Jadeja for a golden duck in swift succession, leaving India reeling.

The tail didn’t wag much longer; Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah departed quickly, Pandya for seven and Bumrah for a duck, as Pakistan efficiently cleaned up, bowling India out for a modest 119 in 19 overs.

IND vs PAK Highlights: Bumrah Breaks Through as Pakistan Starts Cautiously

Pakistan's innings began on a careful note, with openers Babar Azam and Usman Khan initially finding their stride and surviving early scares.

However, the relief was short-lived as Jasprit Bumrah introduced himself with a vengeance, sending Babar packing and setting the stage for a tense middle phase.

Usman and Mohammad Rizwan then took up the mantle, stitching together a promising 47-run partnership. 

The pair looked set to steer Pakistan to a strong position, cruising towards a substantial total until Axar Patel stepped in, striking with his very first delivery to dismiss Usman.

IND vs PAK Highlights: Hardik, Bumrah Tighten the Noose as India Clamps Down

The departure of Usman set off a chain reaction. Hardik Pandya swooped in to snag Fakhar Zaman behind the stumps for 13, further tilting the momentum.

Jasprit Bumrah then returned to dismantle Rizwan's resistance, leaving Pakistan teetering at 80/4 after 14.1 overs.

From there, the Indian pacers—Hardik, Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, and Arshdeep Singh—took control, tightening their grip and suffocating the Pakistani batsmen.

Hardik's removal of Shadab Khan for a mere four runs and Bumrah's dismissal of Iftikhar Ahmed for five were the final nails in the coffin.

From there, Pakistan failed to recover and limped to a total of 113/7 as Rohit Sharma's men sealed a dramatic comeback to win the match.
