INDIA make a fascinating 10 runs win over Pakistan

INDIA after posting a low total of 167 runs against Pakistan, was able to put a huge fight to win the match by 10 runs.

It was quite fascinating victory from the Men in Blue who were in trouble scoring runs. In very cold conditions, MS Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat first. As usual INDIAN start was very poor with both opener got out cheaply. Even the middle order not able to handled the pressure, Yuvraj singh was looking good but unfortunately got bold. Raina and Dhoni in the middle consolidating  the innings with some great shots. It was looking the duo will make good score for INDIA, but it was not always same like of 1 ODI. Raina get out leaving the captain Dhoni to fight alone.

Dhoni is great skipper, he didn't lose his mind continue stroking the balls. Dhoni hit 3 sixes to cheers the crowds, in that problematic situations. Dhoni took powerplay and got caught in point. Some good shots from jadeja INDIA able to put target of 168 to Pakistan.

INDIA  got start by Bhuvneshwar Kumar  who took 2 wicket and finish is 10 over straight way. New bowler Shami though not able to get wicket early but able to restrict Pakistan in scoring rate. Pakistan was going slow but steady while bowler were bowling economically. Ashwin strikes to get Jamshed out but Pakistani captain Mishab and Umar Akmal  gave a good partnership but after falling of Pakistani captain, slowly they loss their wickets at regular interval. INDIANS keep their nerves open to get Pakistan bowled out at 157 to score a narrow 10 runs victory.

It was good fielding that contributed to victory as their moral were high in the beginning and they do better fielding to save boundaries and runs. Some good discipline bowling with great captaincy from the Dhoni make the things turn in favor of victory. Dhoni must be praise for it the victory that INDIA got in the third ODI while they had already lost the series due to some poor batting from others. Dhoni has power of changing the game himself. He did not only scored but also make use of bowlers, encourages player to not loss the sense as he says - "160 wasn't enough. But I told the team that yes it is not enough, but the team should compete well." He deserves the man of the match.


  1. nice post man, India won the match to defeat humiliation not victory. it was just another schocking thinng they did.
