Pakistan has finally beaten India at the men’s World Cup by breaking India’s 12-0 winning streak. Certainly, this match for Pakistan will be recorded in history.

Seven 50-over World Cups and six T20 World Cups, and then they finally got off the mark at the Dubai Sports City on Sunday, beating the India team by 10 wickets. Pakistan has begun its campaign on a victorious note.

Pakistan team’s captain Babar Azam achieved what not even Imran Khan achieved, beating an Indian team in a World Cup.

Well, whenever these two teams met at World Cups, they always let emotions take control of the occasion. It has certainly led to comic mix-ups, dropped catches and misfields. Their best pacers have ended up losing the plot.

The current team, led by Babar, may not have the big names but they are definitely beaming with some young gems. It also has Shaheen Shah Afridi who got Pakistan off to a dream start by taking three main wickets of team India.

For a match that has been restricted to only global events, it was the sort of performance that will add shine. Bowling full in powerplay is Shaheen’s biggest strength. It’s evident that India should have done their homework.

They have seldom got this kind of start against India and they looked in no mood to throw it away. Their fielders didn’t do anything silly. Whenever the ball went up in the air, there was a fielder not only waiting under it but also ensuring they caught it.

India had put 151 on board and that was mainly because of Virat Kohli, who top-scored with 57 off 49 deliveries. On a pitch where others struggled, it was his innings that stopped India from getting any more nervous.

Towards the end, the target for Pakistan was at least 20 short of a par-total. And India needed quick wickets to be in the game. Babar and Mohammad Rizwan scored their respective fifties carrying Pakistan towards the clear vision of victory.

Brief scores:

India: 151/7 in 20 overs

lost to Pakistan: 152 for no loss in 17.5 overs

Babar Azam 68 not out, Mohammad Rizwan 79 not out
