Pakistan recorded their first win within the men’s T20 world cup against India, having failed in their previous five attempts. It was also the primary time Pakistan won a men’s world cup game – ODI or T20 against India, across thirteen matches.
This win was Pakistan’s 1st-ever by a ten-wicket margin in men’s T20Is and therefore the first such defeat for India during this format. Pakistan became solely the fourth team to win a men’s T20 world cup game by 10 wickets.
152 Target with success pursued by Pakistan against India, the second-highest chase in men’s T20Is while not losing a wicket. New Zealand’s 169 against Pakistan in 2016 remains the very best once Kane Williamson associated Martin Guptill shared an undefeated 171-run opening stand.
152* Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam’s unbeaten partnership is now the highest opening partnership in the men’s T20 World Cup. The previous highest was one hundred forty five between Chris Gayle and Devon Smith against South Africa country in 2007. It is also the second-highest partnership for any wicket in the men’s T20 World Cup, behind the 166-run stand between Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene against West Indies in 2010.
Partnerships of 150-plus runs for Pakistan in the T20I format – all three between Babar and Rizwan for the first wicket. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are the sole different combine with multiple 150-plus partnerships during this format. Babar-Rizwan also became the first pair with a 150-plus stand against India in T20Is.
79* Rizwan’s unvanquished score is currently the best for Pakistan on men’s T20 world cup debut, whereas Babar’s 68* is that the second-highest on this list.
