It was then that Shreyas Iyer took center stage, delivering a magnificent innings, notching up 53 runs off 62 balls, exhibiting an impressive strike rate of over 85%. Iyer’s determined display ensured that India adeptly surmounted Pakistan’s bowling challenge. KL Rahul, though not in a hurry, contributed a steady 19 runs off 29 balls.

On the Pakistani side, Shaheen Afridi displayed commendable prowess, claiming two vital wickets in just 6 overs while conceding a mere 36 runs. Hasan Ali added to the tally, securing one wicket. Despite an initial glimmer of success in taking early wickets, the Indian team exuded an air of complete control, ultimately sealing their victory with ease in this World Cup match.

In this showdown, India’s prowess shone brightly, with their bowlers dismantling the opposition’s batting lineup and their batsmen, particularly Rohit Sharma and Shreyas Iyer, exhibiting exemplary form.

The victory reverberated through the stadium, leaving no doubt that India was a force to be reckoned with in the cricketing world.
