Pakistani bowlers dominate New York T20 show, bowl out India for 119

| @indiablooms | 09 Jun 2024, 11:36 pm

Pakistani bowlers kept it tight and picked up wickets at regular intervals to bowl out arch-rivals India for 119 runs in a high-voltage T20 World Cup match in New York.

It is the first time a much-awaited clash between two neighbours is taking place in the USA which is hosting the T20 extravaganza.

Amid the presence of an expected high number of crowds, mostly Asian-origin cricket lovers, New York's newly created stadium buzzed with electrifying Bollywood beats, cheering fans and some adrenaline-rushing cricket.

Indian opener Rohit Sharma (13) set the tone for the first cricket thriller on US soil with a six. Still, Shaheen Shah Afridi and Mohammad Amir soon joined the party to dismiss Virat Kohli (4) and the skipper in quick succession to give the Men in Blue fans a jolt.

Rishabh Pant (42) and Axar Patel (20) stitched the innings after initial dismissals but Pakistani bowlers utilised the conditions well to pick up Indian wickets at regular intervals.

Despite a sloppy effort by Pakistani fielders initially, they rectified and helped their bowlers destroy the mighty batting lineup of the opponent.

Suryakumar Yadav (7), Ravindra Jadeja (0) and Hardik Pandya (7) could not cross the double figure mark.

Indian team cricketers came to the USA after their long IPL season and defeated Ireland in the opening match.

On Sunday, Haris Rauf remained the pick of the Pakistani attack as he took three wickets and gave a strong challenge to the Indian batsmen.

Naseem Shah also picked up three wickets while Afridi scalped one. Experienced  Mohammad Amir dismissed two Indian batsmen in his spirited over.
