In their season debut against Pakistan, the Indian team put on a thrilling performance. India was able to win thanks to Ravindra Jadeja’s outstanding performance and Hardik Pandya’s all-around heroics. In India’s exciting victory over Pakistan, Pandya scored an unbeaten 33 off just 17 balls and claimed 3 wickets, while Virat Kohli scored 35 runs off just 34 deliveries. India’s victory over Pakistan by five wickets was a source of pure happiness and national pride for the entire country.
