Indian Top Order Gone very Early in PowerPlay
-India Lost KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma Early at 10/2 ,that time Indian Team was under pressure .Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya from that time played sensibly and at the end of first 10 overs India’s score was 45-4 at that Time Chase was impossible because India was batting slowly due to Good Fast Bowling by Pakistan Pacers. After the 10th over Indian Team took Momentum and their score increased from that point of moment and Till the 17th Over India needed 48 of 3 overs. Virat Kohli has hit 2 enormous sixes of Haris Rauf in the 19th over and turned the match in India’s favour. Last over of the innings bowled by Mohd Nawaz which started well for Pakistan as Hardik Pandya got out and then the next two bowl went well for Nawaz on the 4th Bowl Kohli smashed a six out of the Boundary signaling it as No-ball which Pakistan Team did’nt agree. Babar Azam and the Umpires argued for a while whether it was a no-ball or not but in the end umpire decision was supreme.
