Yesterday, on 24 October, India played against Pakistan in their first match of the 2021 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

India suffered a shock defeat as Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets. Pakistan won the toss and elected to bowl first. India scored 151 runs for 7 wickets. India captain Virat Kohli scored a half-century with 57 runs. Pakistan was easily able to chase down the score, without losing any wickets. Pakistan’s Shaheen Afridi was the Player of the Match.

This match was the first win for Pakistan in a World Cup game against India. Moreover, it was the first time that Pakistan has won a T20 international match by 10 wickets. This is also India’s first-ever 10-wicket T20I loss.
