Asia Cup 2022 Highlights: Pandya Drives India To Win Against Pakistan In The Final Over

India won a thrilling match in Dubai thanks to Hardik’s stylish conclusion of the chase in the final over, giving their campaign the perfect start.

India defeated Pakistan by five wickets in the Asia Cup 2022 match at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday, which endured a significant amount of anxiety but few runs. Pandya restricted Pakistan to 147 in 19.5 overs, finishing with statistics of 3/5 in 4 overs. He then hit 33 off 17 balls, including the game-winning six in the final over delivered by left-arm spinner Mohammed Nawaz.

India, who are in Group A, are off to a good start in the Asia Cup with this victory. Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja guided India to win with two balls remaining.

The nation was first transfixed by its televisions to watch the destruction of the Supertech twin towers in Noida, Uttar Pradesh. Still, it was soon absorbed by the tense match between India and Pakistan, one of cricket’s most highly anticipated archrivals.

Both Pakistan and India had interesting opening overs. KL Rahul was inside-edged to his stumps by Naseem Shah’s second T20I delivery.In his 100th T20I, Fakhar Zaman dropped Virat Kohli at second slip while chasing a wide ball. With numerous inside and outside edges coming off his bat, Kohli made a jittery start.

He showed off his imposing presence by pulling through mid-wicket off Shahnawaz Dahani in the second over. After a top-edge sailed over the keeper’s head for a six, Kohli showed his authority by slashing through cover and whipping over mid-wicket to earn two boundaries.

Mohammad Nawaz got slog-swept over long on by Rohit Sharma in the ninth over, who had been cautious up until that moment. Rohit grounded out to long-off on the last delivery of the over, handing the victory to the left-arm spinner. In his second over, Nawaz claimed a significant casualty as Kohli chipped directly to long-off.

By slamming Nawaz to the ground for a 98-meter six, Jadeja made his number four debut. In order to keep the scoreboard moving, he and Suryakumar Yadav each hit four, mostly by rotating their strikes.

The 36-run stand was interrupted when Naseem’s first delivery of his second spell knocked Suryakumar’s off-stump off. Jadeja and Hardik Pandya persevered to lower the equation to 32 off the final three overs, with 41 needed off the final four overs.
