Highlights of IND vs. PAK CWC Match 2023
Rohit Sharma failed to reach his century after Pakistani bowler Shaheen Afridi removed him at the 85-minute mark. Standing ovations were given to his outstanding performance by the Ahmedabad audience, and now KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer are joining the hunt.

Shubman Gill was dismissed as Shaheen Afridi re-entered the game. The two most seasoned hitters, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, have entered the chase and are pounding Pakistan’s spinners.
Indian bowlers absolutely controlled the match as they caused Pakistan’s innings to crumble. The Babar Azam-led side was doing well up until the 30th over. But the batting crumbled and the team was all-out on a meagre score of 191 runs when bowler Mohammed Siraj broke the significant partnership between Babar Azam and Muhammad Rizwan.
As Indian bowlers continue to secure wickets, Pakistan’s batting is crumbling under the weight of the situation. To put the Pakistani batsmen under strain, Kuldeep Yadav first removed Saud Shakeel and Iftikhar Ahmed. Later, Jasprit Bumrah secured the wickets of Muhammad Rizwan and Shadab Khan.
With the dismissal of Pakistan captain Babar Azam, Mohammed Siraj gave the Indian squad a breakthrough in the key India vs. Pakistan game. Babar Azam and Muhammad Rizwan split ways, and India is now back in the game. Muhammad Rizwan is now joined by Saud Shakeel.
Mohammed Siraj and Hardik Pandya’s successful dismissals of Abdullah Shafique and Imam-ul-Haq gave the Indian bowlers a bright start. But now that Babar Azam and Muhammad Rizwan are on the pitch, India is aware that it may be hazardous.
