- Group 2, Melbourne: India (160-6) beat Pakistan (159-8) by 4wkts
- Rollercoaster T20 World Cup match ends in remarkable innings
Cometh the hour, cometh the absolute bedlam. It all came down to the final over, a few wild minutes in which everything that could happen did, and quite a few things that couldn’t also did.
At the start of that over India needed 16 off six to steal victory. At the end of it Mohammad Nawaz had bowled nine, Virat Kohli had been bowled off a free hit (and run three byes), there had been a six, a no-ball, two wides, a catch and a stumping, and Kohli was running around with his arms in the air. “I honestly have no words,” he said a few moments later. “I have no idea how that happened.”
