Pakistan created history during the recent T20 World Cup after beating India for the first time in a World Cup fixture. All-rounder Imad Wasim acknowledged that it was a good feeling to defeat India in a World Cup game and the side got the perfect result.
"It was really good and beating India always provides some special moments for everyone involved in Pakistan cricket. Of course, I enjoyed the occasion and the match, and the result was just perfect," Imad told PakPassion.net.
Imad further admitted that the Pakistan side had some pressure before going into the game but eventually outplayed India.
"There was pressure on us, but it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play against India in a T20 World Cup and I was really grateful for that opportunity. It felt like everything we touched that day turned to gold. Make no mistake, India are a very, very good side, but we just outclassed them on the day,” he said.
"The way we played was just fantastic and I would say that it was a near-perfect performance. In fact, I would go so far as to say that what we achieved on that day will be difficult to replicate in the future,” he added.
Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets after chasing down a target of 152 runs in less than 18 overs with both Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam scoring individual fifties.
Earlier, Shaheen Afridi ripped through the Indian bating line up after scalping the wickets of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul early in the innings. It was the then captain Virat Kohli who held the fort at the other end to help India put 151/7 in 20 overs on the board.
