World Cup 2023: India bowls Pakistan out for 191 in epic match

Imam and captain Babar Azam tried to ensure that Pakistan went ahead at a healthy scoring rate.

Supercharged Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, and Hardik Pandya ripped apart Pakistan’s dozy batting lineup to help India skittle out arch-rival Pakistan for 191 in a blockbuster match in the current 2023 ICC World Cup here at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Saturday. The match was part of the 2023 ICC World Cup.

Bumrah, Siraj, Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, and Ravindra Jadeja all took two wickets apiece as Indian bowlers totally dismantled Pakistan’s batting lineup to restrict their traditional opponent to 191 runs in just 42.5 overs. Mohammad Rizwan earned 49, and Captain Babar Azam of the Pakistani team had the highest score of 50 out of 58.

The nation’s supporters, who served as the ’12th man’ for the home team, painted the Narendra Modi Stadium in India blue. This will be the seventh time that the bitter rivals compete against one another in the Cricket World Cup. In the seven previous matches between these two teams, India has emerged victorious on every occasion.


When given the opportunity to bat first, Pakistani openers Abdullah Shafique and Imam-ul-Haq got off to a strong start. However, they did play conservatively against the disciplined Jasprit Bumrah, and they took their opportunities against any sloppy ball from Mohammed Siraj. When Pakistan was given the option to bat first, they were given the opportunity.

However, Rohit continued to use his pacers, and his decision paid off when ‘Miya Magic’ Siraj struck in the eighth over with a ball that jagged in and caught Abdullah Shafique’s leg before.

Both Imam and the captain of the Pakistani team, Babar Azam, worked hard to make sure that their team scored at a healthy rate.

Babar got off to a strong start quickly because he hit three fours off of Hardik Pandya in the first 10 balls of the game. Imam tried for an expansive drive just as Pakistan was getting near to a run rate of six, but he ended up edging a Pandya delivery to wicketkeeper KL Rahul. This resulted in Pakistan losing their wicket.

Jaspreet Bumrah took the wicket of Shadab khan

Ravindra Jadeja gave India an opportunity to take another wicket; however, Mohammad Rizwan disputed the decision and was able to overturn it. The review revealed that the ball was drifting down the leg side when it touched Mohammad Rizwan’s pads, causing the umpire to raise his finger. Mohammad Rizwan was able to survive the call. Rizwan, however, requested a review and was successful in having the ruling overturned since it was discovered that the ball had strayed down the leg side. After that, Rizwan teamed up with Babar to bring Pakistan’s score down to within five runs at the 20-over mark.

The spinners for India continued to exert a constant level of control over the game over the course of the following few overs, with Kuldeep Yadav in particular demonstrating an amazing level of control. In the 28th over, when the Pakistani duo scored 13 runs against Siraj, they broke free from the constraints that had been imposed on them. The beautiful four through the point that Babar hit against India helped him go to his fifty in the one-day international.

In spite of this, Siraj was able to beat Babar’s outside edge in the 30th over, and his delivery crashed into Babar’s off-stump.

After that, the renowned spinner for India, Kuldeep, dealt Pakistan two significant blows when he got rid of Saud Shakeel for six and Iftikhar Ahmed for four in the 33rd over.

In the 34th over of the game, Jasprit Bumrah bowled the Pakistani hitter Rizwan with a magnificent delivery. In his maiden one-day international match against India, Rizwan was unable to reach his first fifty and was forced to return to Pavellion one run short of the mark.

After scoring only 2 runs, Shadab Khan was out of the game thanks to Bumrah, who took another wicket in rapid succession. Shadab Khan was out.

After that, Hardik bowled an excellent delivery to get rid of Mohammad Nawaz for 4 in the 40th over, and then in the next over, Ravindra Jadeja got rid of Hasan Ali for 12, which left Pakistan in a precarious position with 187/9 on the scoreboard.

After that, Jadeja got rid of Pakistan’s last batter, Haris Rauf, and the archrival was bowled out for 191 runs after 42.5 overs.

Pakistan is currently leading India by 191 runs, with Babar Azam on 50 and Mohammad Rizwan on 49. Jasprit Bumrah has taken 2-19 wickets for India.
