CHENNAI: A stellar batting performance from Nasir Jamshed, who scored 101 runs off 132 balls, led Pakistan to its first victory on Sunday in the current Pakistan-India ODI series.
Team green won by six wickets, with 11 balls remaining.
Earlier, Jamshed and skipper Misbahul Haq took Pakistan to 172 score off 38 overs.
Before the skipper came in, Jamshed and Younis Khan – with their 112 runs partnership – got 133 runs on the score board in 30 overs, with the loss of two wickets. Khan was then dismissed on the third ball of the next over.
In the beginning of the second inning, India got the upper-hand when Bhuvneshwar Kumar got Muhammad Hafeez out for a diamond duck.
The devastated Pakistani side crawled to the score of 52 runs after 16 overs at the loss of two wickets but the following Jamshed-Khan partnership brought the ball in Pakistan’s court. Following the 1-1 Twenty20 win between Pakistan and India, the cricket rivals are back in the ground in the Indian city of Chennai.
