In a high-octane encounter between cricketing arch-rivals India and Pakistan in the ICC Men’s World Cup 2023, India has made early inroads into the Pakistani batting lineup. After 12.3 overs, Pakistan finds itself at 73 for the loss of 2 wickets.
The crucial wicket to fall in the 12th over was that of Imam-ul-Haq, who looked promising during his stay at the crease. Hardik Pandya, known for his ability to break partnerships, induced an edge from Imam’s bat, and the catch was safely pouched by KL Rahul. Imam’s departure came after a resilient effort that saw him score 36 runs off 38 balls, including 6 boundaries.
Earlier in the match, Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat, looking to set a competitive target for India to chase. India’s bowlers have applied pressure from the beginning, and their hard work paid off with the dismissal of Imam.
As the match progresses, both teams will be looking to gain the upper hand in this highly anticipated clash. Cricket fans around the world are glued to their screens, eagerly awaiting the outcome of this thrilling encounter.
