What happened in the match
In the first match of T20 World Cup 2022, Indian captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and invited Pakistan to bat first. The bowlers of Team India vindicated the captain’s decision by bowling powerfully and sent openers Babar and Mohammad Rizwan to the pavilion cheaply. However, thanks to half-centuries from Shaan Masood and Iftikhar, Pakistan scored 159 runs in 20 overs.
In response, Team India’s start was also disappointing. Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul lost their wickets early. However, this was followed by a strong partnership between Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya as India won the match by four wickets to open their campaign in the tournament.
