India humiliated Pakistan by 124 runs (DL Method) at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Sunday in the fourth match of the ICC Champions Trophy. The Virat Kohli-led side leveled the four-match Champions Trophy record 2-2 between the arch-rivals in the process.
Coming in to bat during the 37th over, Yuvraj Singh struck a belligerent fifty to take India past 300 in a rain-reduced innings. He made the most of the platform laid by the opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan by spanking nine boundaries – eight fours and a six. The player of the match, however, had a reprieve earlier in the innings. While batting at just four runs, Yuvraj skied Shadab Khan’s wrong’un to the long-off region, which was dropped by Hasan Ali.
With the average of 10 runs in 7.4 overs during the contest, Yadav kept things tight early on in Pakistan’s chase by hitting the good-length consistently. He removed Babar Azam in the 13th over to put opposition on the backfoot and removed Mohammad Amir and Hasan Ali in the last over.
