Arshdeep Singh took control of the game early on, but Shan Masood and Iftikhar Ahmed pulled off a miraculous comeback to bring Pakistan’s score down to 159/8 in 20 overs.

In their reply, India lost four wickets with just 31 on the board; however, a century-and-a-half stand between Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya got the Men in Blue back into the game. Even though Pandya was out in the last over of the game, Kohli made sure that India ended on a positive note after putting up a brave fight.
