Pakistan’s last couple of balls in the first innings against India caused a lot of hysteria for the Indian cricket fans as Fakhar Zaman made horrific blunders against Ravi Bishnoi to gift India 8 runs. India and Pakistan took on each other in the second match of the Super4 stage of Asia Cup 2022 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul gave a fiery start to the Indian team as the message was very clear from the word go. Both the Indian openers smashed 50 runs in the powerplay itself and then Virat Kohli took charge of the proceedings. Wickets kept tumbling from the other end but Virat held his fort and stayed until the very end to help India finish on a high total of 181 runs for 7 wickets in 20 overs.

Watch: Fakhar Zaman Comes Up With Comedy Of Errors

Virat Kohli was dismissed in the 20th over of the game which was being bowled by Haris Rauf. Rauf bowled an excellent over till Virat’s wicket and when Bishnoi came to the crease, only 2 balls were left.  However, to everyone’s surprise, Bishnoi scored two boundaries in two balls with aid from Fakhar Zaman. On both deliveries, Fakhar committed comical errors to help India gain momentum.

On the 5th ball of the over, Fakhar over-ran and failed to save the boundary. On the last ball of the over, he failed to catch a dolly off Haris Rauf. With India luring at 173/7 at 19.4 overs, they finished on 181/7 when the first innings came to a close.

Team India came with all guns blazing when they came out to bat in the game against Pakistan. Virat Kohli, once again, was the top score for the Men in Blue and when they came out to the ball, they got Babar Azam out early. However, Mohammad Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman steadied Pakistan’s ship from there.
