After India asked Pakistan to bat at the Dubai International Stadium, Bhuvneshwar got four wickets for 26 runs and Hardik got three wickets for 25 runs. The Indian pacers aimed short balls at the Pakistani batters. India got off to a great start when Bhuvneshwar Kumar got the big wicket of Babar Azam. The dangerous Fakhar Zaman was then taken out by Avesh Khan during the power play, which put Rohit Sharma’s team in a great position. The tail was cleaned up by Bhuvneshwar and Hardik. Rizwan had the best score with 43, but Shahnawaz Dahani and Haris Rauf helped Pakistan get to a good score. Previously, Rishabh Pant wasn’t in India’s playing XI because Dinesh Karthik was picked instead.
