Cricket World #INDOPAK Cup: Can India square the series against Pakistan in Kolkata on Thursday?

In the first match of the Cricket World #INDOPAK Cup series, Pakistan won the match by the narrowest of margins – just 5 runs - with veteran Shoaib Malik hitting a 22-ball 64 (including 6 sixes) and former captain Sarfaraz Ahmad making an unbeaten 53, the main run getters for the home side in their huge total of 169/5 in 10 overs.

Chasing a mammoth score of 170 to win, India fell just 5 runs short of victory, with Shreyas Iyer (who scored a 21-ball 51) and Virat Kohli (62). Had he not been dismissed by Wahab Riaz for a 20-ball 62, he might have taken India home. But, his dismissal at a crunch time cost India the match.

Join us on Tomorrow 4th June,  for the live toss at 10:45am GMT,  Kolkata, for the Cricket World #INDOPAK Cup
