Former Pakistan captain Sana Mir was impressed by Pakistan's performance against India in the 20-20 World Cup. Pakistan finally managed to break the jinx and romped home by 10 wickets at the Dubai International Stadium. It was the Azam-Mohammad Rizwan show that knocked the stuffing out of archrival India. This empathic victory was also their first in 13 attempts in the World Events against India. Mir said Pakistan justified the tag of being the favorites for the global event.

“It was incredible to see Pakistan beat India by ten wickets; I think every Pakistani has been waiting for this win for quite some time. It is the first time Pakistan has beaten India at an ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup and they did it in quite a grand style. It was one of the most immaculate performances that I’ve seen from Pakistan’s men’s team, they were outstanding in all three departments; I don’t recall one mistake, they were quite brilliant,” Tribune quoted Sana Mir.

The cricketer-turned-expert was also impressed with the way Kohli handled defeat against Pakistan. After the match, the 32-year-old was seen sharing a light moment with Rizwan and Azam. Mir lauded the sportsmanship of Kohli and said he behaved like a true blue role model.

“Virat Kohli handled the defeat with so much grace and I admire his sportsman’s spirit, it’s really good to see the top athletes, who are role models behaving in the way he did. It shows a lot of security within, and it means they have a lot of confidence to bounce back so I won’t be surprised if India bounces back very quickly and in a big fashion and I hope we can see Pakistan and India play each other again in this tournament.”
