Following the historic win against arch-rivals Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2024 match, India's lead pacer Jasprit Bumrah expressed his views on Mohammad Rizwan's dismissals.


The pacer claimed three wickets for just 14 runs in his four overs. In the first innings, India's Rishabh Pant played a gritty knock of 42 runs to guide his team to a total of 119 runs in the T20 World Cup 2024 match at the Nassau County Cricket Stadium.


Jasprit Bumrerah stated that the Blues were very clear about the things they needed to execute to restrict the opposition.


"When we were batting in the morning, there was a lot more help for the bowlers. When we bowled, the ball had stopped seaming and there wasn't a lot of lateral movement. We were very calm and very clear on what we had to do," Bumrah said in a video posted by ICC on Instagram.

Speaking about Mohammad Rizwan's dismissal, the speedster stated that if he had not taken the wickets of Rizwan, the match would have turned in Pakistan's favour.

"In my third over - that was a crucial stage. If that over went in Pakistan's favour, then the game would have also gone in their favour," the fast bowler added.

Coming to the T20 World Cup 2024 match, Pakistan won the toss and put India to bat first. However, the Indian batters did not get things going for them at this tough surface as star openers Virat Kohli (4) and Rohit Sharma (13) failed to score big. Rishabh Pant (42 in 31 balls, with six fours) seemed to be playing on a different pitch and had useful partnerships with Axar Patel (20 in 18 balls, with two fours and a six) and Suryakumar Yadav (seven in eight balls, with a four). However, the lower middle order crumbled under the pressure of scoring runs on such a tough pitch and India could make just 119 in 19 overs.

Haris Rauf (3/21) and Naseem Shah (3/21) were the top bowlers for Pakistan. Mohammed Amir got two scalps while Shaheen Shah Afridi got one.

In the run-chase, Pakistan took a more measured approach and Mohammed Rizwan (31 in 44 balls, with a four and six) held one end steady. However, Bumrah (3/14) and Hardik Pandya (2/24) got the crucial wickets of skipper Babar Azam (13), Fakhar Zaman (13), Shadab Khan (4), Iftikhar Ahmed (5) as well, which kept the pressure intact on Pakistan. With 18 runs needed in the final over, Naseem Shah (10*) tried to win it for Pakistan, however, Arshdeep Singh (1/31) made sure Pakistan fell short by six runs.

Bumrah secured the 'Player of the Match' for his match-winning spell.

After winning this thriller, India is at the top of Group A with two wins in two games and four points. Pakistan is in fourth place, having lost both their games to the USA and India. Their knockout stage chances look slim.
