Tomorrow India and South Africa should win in order to qualify for the Semis.

This Week is going to be lot of fun and exciting Contest and we just need to Sit back and Relax ๐Ÿ˜Š

Its India Again !

Just like last time India defeated Pakistan in Champions Trophy leading on top of the table by 2 points. Pakistan were lucky in a Toss and decided to bowl first but looks like their Strategy didn’t came into effect as poor fielding and couple miss catches affected them to the Mammoth score of 319. Brilliant innings played by Rohit Dharma, Virat Kohli, Shikar Dhawan and Yuvraj Singh all scoring half century.

There were Showers in the middle of the game but it couldn’t last for a an hour but reducing overs to 48 in Indian Innings and 41 overs 266 target for Pakistan . Hardik Pandya’s three Sixes took the score above 300 in the last over. Pakistan’s first wicket partnership made a slight impact but couldn’t carry on further as the partnership was broken by B.Kumar taking Leg Before Wicket of Ahmed Shehzad.

But soon after Pakistan couldn’t hold the grip and kept on losing wickets getting all out on 164 and India winning by 124 runs by D/L Method. Man of the match was Yuvraj Singh with his incredible knock of 53 in 32 balls with 8 fours and a six. India vs Pakistan has always been an entertaining match and I am excited to watch then further soon ๐Ÿ™Œ

Almost all were waiting for this day to arrive, so do not forget to watch it tomorrow at 12:30 AST. #MaukaMauka. India thrashed Bangladesh scoring 324 runs in 50 Overs and winning by a big margin in Practice Match.
