Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam have hit some crisp boundaries against the Indian pace duo of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammad Shami to give Pakistan a cracking start in their pursuit of the target 152 runs.
Earlier, Virat Kohli scored his 29th half-century in T20Is before being dismissed for 57 by Shaheen Shah Afridi as India posted 151/7 in their allotted 20 overs. Afridi was on fire as he sent back openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, before Hassan Ali removed SuryaKumar Yadav to give Pakistan a great start in the match. Kohli hit five boundaries and a six during his knock.
Rishabah Pant also played a good hand as he hit a 30 balls 39 runs, which included two fours and two sixes, before being dismissed by Shadab Khan. Hardik Pandya failed to get going in the death overs but India manage to surpass the psychological 150 runs mark.
