Chasing a modest target, India openers Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli started cautiously. After Kohli’s dismissal, Rishabh Pant joined Sharma and the pair accelerated the chase. Sharma struck a fluent 52 before retiring hurt, but Pant continued his aggressive knock, finishing unbeaten on 36. India comfortably chased down the target in just 12.2 overs, losing only two wickets.

This emphatic victory puts India in a strong position at the top of Group A. They will be looking to build on this momentum in their upcoming matches.
