Side by Side
These two Asian powerhouses have met 11 times in T20 World Cup play. This is India's eighth victory, whereas Pakistan has only managed three.
The surface seems pretty grassy, Irfan Pathan said off the cuff, albeit this is not an official report.
India won the toss and decided to field first against Pakistan.
What a first over!
Only one run was scored, and that was due to a wide that Dinesh Karthik did well to hold on to and not try to hit for more. An excellent beginning for India.
BABAR GOLDEN DUCK!
It was Arshdeep Singh's first ball in a World Cup of any kind, and he bowled Babar Azam.
Pakistan Final Score
Pakistan 159/8 in 20 overs
India Final Score
India 160/6 in 20 overs
INDIA WIN BY FOUR WICKETS!
A crazed frenzy has seized the MCG. It was one of the best T20 World Cup contests ever, and India won.
