Ind v Pak - 19th Match, Group A, New York

Bumrah spearheads defence of 119 for India

India 119 (Pant 42, Naseem 3-21, Rauf 3-21)
Pakistan 113-7 (Rizwan 31, Bumrah 3-15)
India won by six runs

Jasprit Bumrah took 3-14 as India battled to a gritty six-run victory over Pakistan in a T20 World Cup thriller in New York.

Pakistan seamers Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah both finished with fine figures of 3-21 as India were bowled out for 119 in 19 overs in slippery conditions after morning rain.

Rishabh Pant's aggressive 42 was imperative for India but their usually fearsome bowling initially attack missed some of its bite as their rivals reached 80-3 with six overs left, Muhammad Rizwan patiently setting about chasing down the total.

The game swung India's way following the Pakistan wicketkeeper's dismissal for 31 – bowled by the brilliant Bumrah, who spearheaded India's fightback when they faced defeat.

With 18 needed off the final over of the game, bowled by Arshdeep Singh, Pakistan could only scramble 10 runs as they fell just short.

India have now won seven of their last nine meetings with Pakistan in T20 World Cups, with one no result.

This victory at a stadium in New York - which will be dismantled once the US leg of the T20 World Cup is over - will be particularly sweet for India.

Not least because it pushes their winless rivals closer to the exit door and puts themselves on the brink of qualifying for the Super 8s.
