Pakistan had a big total of 357 runs to chase. This is also the highest score ever in an India vs Pakistan ODI match. The game began with tight spells by Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj. Both troubled the Pakistan openers, and Bumrah was the first one to have blood on his sword. He took the wicket of Iman-ul-Haq and announced his comeback.

Then Babar Azam came on and was troubled by Bumrah from the very first ball. But it was Hardik Pandya who cashed in first and bowled Babar’s stump. Pakistan lost three wickets by the end of the 12th over for a score of 47.
