India vs Pakistan Highlights, World Cup 2023: Shreyas Iyer smashed the winning runs and reached his half-century in the process.
India vs Pakistan Highlights, World Cup 2023: On Saturday, India defeated their bitter rivals Pakistan handily, thanks to the bowling duo of Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav, who both shared four wickets and set off a spectacular collapse by Pakistan.
India defeated Pakistan by seven wickets in front of over 100,000 spectators at Narendra Modi Stadium, marking their eighth World Cup victory overall against the Pakistani side since 1992.
Pakistan collapsed from 155/2 (29.3 overs) to 191 all out in 42.5 overs, with Bumrah taking 2/19 in seven overs and Kuldeep taking 2/35 in ten overs. In addition to Kuldeep and Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Ravindra Jadeja, Hardik Pandya, and Siraj also claimed two wickets apiece.
Next, as India sprinted to the finish line, captain Rohit Sharma scorched a 36-ball half-century, and captain Shreyas Iyer added the last touches with an undefeated fifty of his own. With six fours and six sixes in his 86 runs off 63 balls, Rohit helped India end with 192/3 (30.3 overs).
Shreyas finished undefeated on 53 off 62 balls and reached his half century with a boundary, which also happened to be the winning runs. After three straight victories, India now leads the table with six points, one point ahead of New Zealand on net run-rate. Pakistan is now ranked fourth in the points table with four points from three games, following their first defeat of the competition.
India vs. Pakistan Live Score: The much anticipated match has ended, and the outcome was pretty much inevitable more than two hours ago. When Babar and Rizwan were winning, Pakistan appeared to be the first team to seriously challenge India in this event.
But for whatever reason, they went from being 155/2 to being unable to even get to 200. Then, against Afghanistan, Rohit Sharma just entered and took up where he left off, with Shreyas Iyer adding the final touches to the crushing victory. India has risen to the top of the rankings, surpassing New Zealand.

Despite having a similar six-point lead to the Kiwis, they are superior due to their net run rate of +1.821. However, given that their net run rate is just second best to South Africa's +2.360, this may simply be a brief top spot. The Proteas are now playing India, and on Tuesday they will play the Netherlands in their third game.
If they weren't among the fortunate few who received passes from some source, those who were at the stadium today most likely had to endure a great deal of hardship in order to obtain the ticket and then go to the game.
If all they wanted to witness was an India triumph, then it's probably safe to say they got their money's worth and effort's worth.
In relation to India, they certainly seem frighteningly good. Despite not having the best of starts on paper, they have played in Australia, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. They are at the top of the standings despite having soundly defeated each of them.
But that's where you ought to end. You know what you want to watch, as MS Dhoni states in the Oreo commercial that plays during every play break. However, it's best not to mention it. Remain true to what can be demonstrated, which is that India is looking great. Hello!
