New Delhi: For a change, Pakistan emerged victorious, getting the better of India by seven wickets in the World T20 for the blind here yesterday. India notched up a formidable 204-4 at the Feroz Shah Kotla but Pakistan, riding on Muhammad Zafar’s unbeaten 88, chased down the target of 205 in just 15.3 overs, denying India a third consecutive victory at the World T20 against this opponent.
