ICC T20 World Cup
T20 World Cup: India beat Pakistan by 6 wickets
India's supremacy over Pakistan in World Cup matches remained intact after the men in blue defeated their opponents by six wickets in the ICC Twenty20 World Cup Super 10 match yesterday at the famous Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Virat Kohli's unbeaten 55 runs of 37 balls helped India reach the target of 119.

Chasing the target, India lost three early wickets in the form of openers Rohit Sharma (10), Shikhar Dhawan (6) and then Suresh Raina (0). But after that Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh ensured that no further damage took place before a certain victory became visible.

Both of them played some superb shots and kept the score board running in such a way that the Pakistani bowlers were never able to come out of pressure.

When Yuvraj Singh got out at the individual score of 24 runs and a partnership of 61 runs with Kohli, victory was almost certain for the Indians. After Yuvraj's departure, skipper Dhoni came in to bat. From the very start of his innings he was looking confident. His knock of 13 runs off 9 balls proved this. India reached the target in 16th over.

The match was delayed due to rain. So instead of 20 overs, the umpires and the match-referee decided to reduce the match to 18 overs.  

India won the toss and decided to field first. Indian bowlers very well restricted the Pakistani batsmen from playing big shots. After the end of 18 overs Pakistan managed to score 118 runs at the loss of five wickets. Batsman Shoaib Malik with 26 runs was the highest scorer from the Pakistani side.

Indian batsman Virat Kohli was declared Man of the Match.
