The Men in Green registered first-ever World Cup win over their neighbours
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ramiz Raja has opened up after the Men in Green’s historic win over arch-rivals India.
Captain Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan steered Pakistan to their first ever win over India in World Cups with a clinical performance in Dubai.
In a post on his official Twitter account, Raja termed the victory as a “moment to cherish”.
Alhamdolilla…It’s the first one, the most magnificent one but remember journey has just begun.. such a proud moment for all Pakistanis and thank you boys for providing us this moment to cherish.#PakistanZindabad— Ramiz Raja (@iramizraja) October 24, 2021
Shaheen Afridi (3-31) headlined Pakistan's disciplined bowling effort to restrict arch-rivals India to a modest 151-7 in a rematch of the inaugural 2007 final.
Babar and opening partner Mohammad Rizwan then returned to overwhelm the target with 13 balls to spare and register Pakistan's maiden win against India in a World Cup in their 13th attempt.
Babar remained not out on 68, while Rizwan made an unbeaten 79.
