Salman Butt says “Everything Pakistan touched turned gold” in T20 World Cup 2021. Butt described the team’s victory. Over India in an encounter as a perfect performance. According to Butt, everything went right for Pakistan against India in Dubai. Pakistan ended India’s unbeaten streak. Against them in the T20 World Cup on Sunday, thumping their arch-rivals by 10 wickets. Bowling first after winning the toss, Pakistan restricted India to 151 for 7. Azam and Rizwan then smashed unbeaten fifties. Also, to guide Pakistan to an emphatic win.
“Everything Pakistan touched turned gold. It was Pakistan’s day out. Everything they planned was executed precisely. The intent and aggression in the planning were outstanding,” Butt said.
“India’s top 3 are among the best in the world so Pakistan needed to get those early wickets. The decision to bowl first after winning the toss was the correct one. And when the ball swung for Shaheen, he bowled outstanding full-length deliveries,” Butt said.
“Rohit Sharma has been troubled by Mohammad Amir before. When the ball comes in, any right-hander can get into difficulty. And Rohit, even though a world-class player, has had issues with the in-coming ball from left-arm pacers. Also, the way a length ball breached KL Rahul’s defense and crashed into the stumps, Pakistan could not have imagined a better start. After that Virat Kohli had to anchor the innings otherwise India could not have reached 150,” Salman Butt added.
Lastly, India recovered reasonably well. After the early damage inflicted by Afridi. They could never dominate Pakistan. Also, analyzing what went wrong for India. After that, Butt suggests that the team’s inexperience on the big day came to the fore.
