Pakistani batsmen suffer trademark meltdown, five-down against India

Pakistan are 165-6 after 34.1 overs against India in pursuit of their massive 337-run target in a rain-hit World Cup 2019 fixture at Old Trafford in Manchester.

Vijay Shankar bowled out Pakistani wicket keeper-batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed. The Pakistan captain drags on, looked to drive expansively through the offside but got an inside edge instead and the ball clatters into leg stump. Another nail in an already tightly secured Pakistan coffin.

The Greenshirts started cautiously, not taking any risk. Lady Luck appeared to have smiled on them in the 5th over when the impressive Bhuvneshwar Kumar tweaked his hamstring and left the field.

But it proved to be a false dawn as his replacement, Vijay Shankar removed Imam with the first ball he bowled, trapping the southpaw in front of wickets.
