Asia Cup 2022: Sourav Ganguly Hailed Rohit Sharma For Keeping Composure In Tough Situation: The Indian cricket team started their campaign in the ongoing 2022 edition of the Asia Cup with a blockbuster win against arch-rivals Pakistan.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4/26), Hardik Pandya (3/25) and Arshdeep Singh (2/33), and Avesh Khan (1/19) spelled magic with the ball as they ran all over the Pakistani batters to bundle them out for 147 runs in 19.4 overs. Opener Mohammed Rizwan (43) and Iftikhar Ahmed (28) were the only ones who could contribute something decent with the bat.
Chasing a target of 148 runs, the Indian cricket team started the innings on the worst possible note as they lost KL Rahul for a duck in the very first over. After this Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma formed a partnership and added a 49-run stand. Mohammed Nawaz dismissed Kohli and Sharma with twin strikes.
Following this, Ravindra Jadeja and Suryakumar Yadav helped move the scoreboard before the latter was dismissed for 18 runs.
A 52-run stand between Jadeja (35) and Hardik Pandya (33*) followed, which took the Indian cricket team closer to winning. Hardik Pandya played a match-winning knock of 33* runs off 17 balls to help the Indian cricket team win the contest by five wickets. His stellar knock was laced with 4 fours and a stunning six.
