India Vs Pakistan Live Score
India Vs Pakistan Live Score: India have set Pakistan a target of 152 in 20 overs. After being put in to bat, Team India got off to the worst start possible. Rohit Sharma was trapped LBW on 0 by Shaheen Afridi in the first over. He was gone for a golden duck. In his next over, Afridi then removed KL Rahul on 3 by disturbing his timber. At 4, Suryakuamr Yadav played a few shots and got the scoreboard ticking but in the 6th over, he was dismissed by Hasan Ali. Eventually, India reached 36/3 after the Powerplay. In the next four overs, India scored 24 to keep the run-rate up. Thanks to Rishabh Pant upping the ante and Kohli playing second fiddle, India began their comeback. He hit two one-handed sixes before being caught and bowled by Shadab Khan. India got to 100/4 after 15 overs. Eventually, after Kohli got to his 29th T20I fifty, India posted 151/6 in their 20 overs. Kohli was dismissed for 57.

Terrific comeback by India
From 6/2, to reach 151/7 is a commendable recovery. When odds await, champions rise. And that’s exactly what Virat Kohli did tonight, scoring a fine half-century. It wasn’t a fluent innings but one that has given India a total to defend.

1/6 after 1 over. Hasan Ali bowled a great first over.
SIX! WHAT A SHOT FROM PANT! Another one-handed six. He is making a habit of this. Down on one knee, extends his arms fully and tonks it over backward square leg for a maximum.
SIX! ANOTHER ONE-HANDED SIX! I am beginning to believe he actually practices this shot in the next. Overpitched his off-cutter, did Ali. Pant clears his front leg and deposits the ball over the long off boundary for another six.
BRILLIANT OVER FOR INDIA! 15 off it. IND are 81-3 after 12 overs.

First bowling change of the night as Hasan Ali is introduced into the attack.
Oct 24, 2021 07:54 PM IST
KOHLI HANGING BACK? NOT POSSIBLE
Good tactic from Kohli, as you’d expect from this modern-day great. In order to negate Shaheen Afridi’s swing, who is bowling his third over, he is batting from outside his crease. Not deciding to hang back and taking the challenge head on is just typical Kohli.
SIX! YOU KNEW THIS WAS COMING! After facing three dot balls, he makes room, charges down the track and creams the ball over long on for 6. This is a death-overs shot. USUALLY, may I add.
IND are 30/2 after 5 overs.
Oct 24, 2021 07:53 PM IST
India vs Pakistan: Suryakumar Yadav looking good
FOUR! He means business, does Suryakumar Yadav. Till the last delivery, Wasim had only conceded 3 runs. On the final ball, SKY brought out his sweep shot and since the fine leg was inside the circle, he was able to thread the gap and find four behind deep square.
IND are 21-2 after 4 overs

India Vs Pakistan T20 World Cup Match Today: A RATHER UNIQUE SITUATION FOR INDIA
The way Indian openers have gone about their business in the recent past, this is an anamoly. But credit where due, Shaheen Afridi is bowling like a dream.
SIX! Just as I was typing the word “dream”, SKY finished the over with a scintillating pull shot for six. Short from Afridi, SKY rocks back onto this backfoot and tonks the ball over deep square leg.
IND are 14/2 after 3 overs
Oct 24, 2021 07:44 PM IST
OUT! RAHUL IS CLEAN BOWLED
OUT! KL RAHUL IS GONE TOO! SHAHEEN AFRIDI HAS TWO! That is rapid, that is menacing and that was near impossible to play. Once again, from over the wicket, on good length and gets the ball to move in sharply. Like Sharma, KL played across the line and he lost his stumps.
He is gone for 3. IND are 6/2 after 2.1 overs.
Suryakumar Yadav is the new man in
Oct 24, 2021 07:38 PM IST
India vs Pakistan T20 World Cup 2021 Live: Imad Wasim sharing the new ball
Babar has gone for spin here. Considering how Moeen Ali of England ran riot against West Indies in the powerplay, this could be a genius move.
A tidy first over from Wasim, concedes just 4 runs from it. He bowled it flat, fast and into the stumps. He didn’t allow either Kohli or Rahul to free thier arms. PAK happy to concede the singles.
IND are 6/1 after 2 overs

THAT IS PLUMB
Oct 24, 2021 07:34 PM IST
India vs Pakistan: Rahul off the mark
MIDDLES FIRST BALL! A gentle push to cover by Rahul first up. No runs but he middles it. That will make him feel good
OFF THE MARK: India and Rahul are off the mark on the 3rd delivery as he clips the ball off his hips to square leg for a single

Team India’s Hardik Pandya speaks ahead of the match
“I don’t like to get too hyped by the situation, and my family make sure of that too. I stay away from social media because you do get excited and get the vibes. It’s simple, and we leave emotions out of the way, and keep things professional. We make sure we tick the right boxes, and do the processes right. The back is fine, it was jittery, but I won’t be bowling for now. I want to be able to bowl eventually, closer to the knockouts. The professionals and I both have to take the call about when I can have a bowl”
Oct 24, 2021 07:11 PM IST
India vs Pakistan T20 World Cup 2021: IND skipper Virat Kohli at the toss
“We are pretty happy with setting the target. We would have bowled first too, but the toss is not in your control. We are pretty balanced with our squad and you need to be prepared for it. We need to stay as professional as possible. We need to stay focussed on the processes. Everyone watches it closely all over the world. We can use that as a motivation, but we need to ensure we don’t get too emotional and need to just stay professional. The pitch looks very different. Evenly rolled and there is no grass at all which was the case during the IPL, and I’m sure that was done to hold it together well for the World Cup. We expect the pitch to stay good all through and set a good total. The four not playing are: Rahul Chahar, Ishan Kishan, Ashwin and Thakur.”
