Highlights of the India vs. Pakistan match from the 2023 World Cup feature Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav, who together took four wickets in India’s convincing victory over Pakistan on Saturday. The seven-wicket victory was India’s eighth straight triumph over Pakistan in World Cups, dating back to a run that started in 1992, in front of more than 100,000 spectators at Narendra Modi Stadium. Pakistan fell from 155/2 (29.3 overs) to 191 all out in 42.5 overs thanks to Bumrah’s 2/19 in seven overs and Kuldeep’s 2/35 in ten overs. Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Siraj, and Ravindra Jadeja all claimed two wickets in addition to Kuldeep and Bumrah.

Then, as India sped to victory, captain Rohit Sharma of India blazed a 36-ball half-century, and Shreyas Iyer added the finishing touches with an unbroken fifty of his own. India’s final score was 192/3 (30.3 overs), thanks in large part to Rohit’s 86 runs off 63 balls, which included six fours and six sixes. Shreyas reached his fifty with a boundary, which also served as the winning run, as he finished undefeated on 53 off 62 balls. After three straight victories, India is currently in first place with six points, ahead of New Zealand on net run-rate. Pakistan has four points after three games and is fourth in the standings after suffering their first loss of the competition.
