India Continues to Dominate Pakistan in Cricket World Cup
India yet again defeated Pakistan to maintain its record, six straight victory in world cup against Pakistan and this is going to stay for long unless the two arch rivals meet again in this World cup, which everyone would love to.
India after winning the toss elected to bat, it was an electrifying environment with over 41,587 fans present in Adelaide Oval, Adelaid. Through out the game, team India dint feel any pressure and it was further eased by the brilliant knock from Virat Kohli.
India managed to get 300 runs on scoreboard, could have been more but sudden dismal in last few overs stayed the run machine on board. Pakistan didn’t had a good start but they were in game until 20 overs and then wickets started falling, Misbah was the lone fighter who was also dismissed by Sami. Detailed match scorecard here.
Here is how the world reacted over the match and some interesting stats from tweet news, it was indeed an epic one!
