In a high-stakes match at Nassau Cricket Stadium in New York, Pakistan won the toss and elected to field first against their traditional rivals, India. This was a crucial game for Babar Azam’s team, which needed a win to stay in contention for the Super 8s.

The Indian batting lineup faced significant pressure, but Rishabh Pant’s resilient 42 runs off 31 balls helped stabilize the innings. Axar Patel contributed a vital 20 runs, pushing India past the 100-run mark.

India was ultimately bowled out for 119, marking the first time Pakistan had dismissed the entire Indian team in a T20 match.
