Pakistan clinched a 2-1 series win over India as the three-match series between the blind cricket teams from both countries went down to the wire in Lahore.

Pakistan won the opening game by 71 runs before India hit back to force a decider, which was won by the home side by the margin of six wickets.

Muhammed Jameel was named as the man of the match after he scored 62 in Pakistan's successful run chase.

India started well, making 50 runs in six overs before they were slowed somewhat and eventually closed on 162 for eight.

Pakistan's openers then put on 97 for the first wicket and their good work was continued but they were under pressure, needing 20 to win in 18 balls.

Enter Muhammed Shahbaz, who hit 18 runs in just five balls to help his side reach victory with an over to spare.
