Jasprit Bumrah’s Stellar Spell Secures India’s Narrow Victory Over Pakistan

New York: Jasprit Bumrah delivered a match-winning performance as India narrowly defeated Pakistan by 6 runs at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium. In a low-scoring thriller, India set a target of 120 runs, which Pakistan nearly chased down before Bumrah’s sensational spell turned the game in India’s favor.

Chasing 120, Pakistan were well-placed at 73 for 3 in 12.1 overs, needing just 47 runs off the remaining 47 balls. However, Bumrah’s extraordinary bowling derailed their chase. He ended with impressive figures of 3 for 14 in his four overs, crucially halting Pakistan at 113 for 7 in their 20 overs.

Earlier, Pakistan’s pacers showcased their prowess by bowling out India for a modest total of 119 runs. Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf were the standout bowlers for Pakistan, each claiming three wickets, while Mohammad Amir chipped in with two. Rishabh Pant was the lone warrior for India, scoring a resilient 42 runs. The Indian batting lineup struggled to build partnerships after Pakistan captain Babar Azam won the toss and opted to bowl first.

India seemed to be in a comfortable position at 81 for 3 after 10 overs. However, a dramatic batting collapse ensued, with the team managing only 38 runs and losing 7 wickets in the next 9 overs.
