Pakistan Won by 5 Wickets

17-September-2012: It is very good to watch India vs Pakistan match. Today the same thing happened again. India won the toss and elected to bat first. Virat Kohli & Rohit Sharma helped India to reach 185 runs. India was confident after defeating Sri Lanka. Pakistan other hand played superbly with help of Kamran Akmal and Shoaib Malik. They won comprehensively.

In first inning India played superbly. Gambhir and Sehwag was out early. Then it was Rohit and Virat to have a go and they did the same. With half centuries of both India reaches at the massive total of 185 in 20 overs with loss of 3 wickets. Saeed Ajmal again proved with good figures of 22 runs in 4 overs with 2 wickets.

Pakistan started well with Hafeez but after few overs they lost back to back wickets. It was one man show. Kamran on the go and he played a superb inning of 92 runs in just 50 balls with 6 sixes and 5 fours. Other end Shoaib Malik gave a good stand with 37 runs in just 18 balls. Pakistan won by 5 wickets easily in just 19.1 overs.

The main concern for the Indian team was the bowling department. Where every body except Ashwin went for 10+ runs an over. We can see that even 185 may be not the best score to have in T20s. So, be ready for the high scoring matches with great results.
