Can IndiaPakistan matches be short of drama? The arch-rivals squared off in an international game after over a year in the fourth match of the Asia Cup T20. India were clear favourites to start with and might go on to win the game. Putting Pakistan in to bat first, India bowled them out for a mere score of 83. The Indians bowled well but they were aided by some poor shot selection from Pakistani batsmen and some terrible display of running between the wickets. Pick of the tweets: Asia Cup 2016, India vs Pakistan, 4th T20I at Mirpur

Chasing 84 in 20 overs was expected to be a cakewalk for the much famed Indian batting but Mohammad Amir ensured it would not be so. He got the ball to move and bowled over 90 miles per hour. He dismissed Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane in the first over, beating the batsmen with pace and swing, and dismissed Suresh Raina in his second over. Two well-struck boundaries by Virat Kohli off Amir’s final over spoiled his figures but he ended with 4-0-18-3.

It was a classic display of ruthless fast bowling and his spell set Twitter abuzz. We bring you some of the best tweets:
