Pakistan vs India 2nd T20 Live Streaming, Pak vs Ind Live 2012
Pakistan tour of India, 2nd T20I Cricket Match Live Streaming: Pakistan vs India at Ahmedabad, Dec 28, 2012.
South Asia’s bitter rivals Pakistan and India are meeting again on the cricket ground, marking a gradual thaw in their decades-old rivalry. The first bilateral series between India and Pakistan since November 2007, comprising two Twenty20 matches and three one-day internationals, begins Christmas Day with a Twenty20 match in the southern Indian city of Bangalore. Thousands of cricket fans began lining up outside Bangalore’s massive Chinnaswamy Stadium nearly five hours before the match was to begin later today.
Pakistan have pulled off a dramatic win in the first T20, Malik playing a great knock, 57 off 50 balls, guided Pakistan home with two balls to spare! India did really well after being restricted to 133/9 in 2o overs and pegging Pakistan back to 3-12 when the chase was on. Great debut for Bhuvneshwar Kumar, picking up 4-9-3. Dhoni banked heavily on his part-timers, Kohli, Jadeja and Yuvraj and they went for plenty. Could it have been different had Ishant Sharma bowled the last over? Great response from Hafeez to all his critics who have asked him to drop then the order because he is a ‘nudger’. Well he ‘nudged’ his way to 61 from 44 balls and gave the Pakistan order strength with his positive game right through. Pakistan’s bowlers, too, did what was required of them after initially leaking 75 from the first 10 overs. Mohammad Irfan, who looked completely out of sorts against England on his debut, was the surprise package, consistently bowling in the high 140s and using all of his 7-foot-frame. Ajmal, as usual, put the breaks and picked up 2-25 from his four overs. Gul, without a doubt, was the star! After going for plenty in his first over, he produced a magical next couple to flatten India’s quest for something in the range of 160-170. He finished with 3-21. The two teams now head to Ahmedabad for the second T20.
