Indian hard-hitting batsman Yuvraj Singh was dismissed for 24 by fast-bowler and seamer Wahab Riaz, after being caught by Mohammad Sami at mid-wicket, against Pakistan, in Super 10 Group 2, Match 19 of the ongoing ICC World T20 2016 at the historic Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata on Saturday. Short ball, as Yuvraj looks to stand and pull it over the mid-wicket, but doesn’t get the distance, as Sami claims it easy. Currently, India are 84 for the loss of four wickets in 12 overs, with Virat Kohli on 33 and MS Dhoni coming in. Earlier, Indian skipper MS Dhoni won the coin toss and elected to bowl first, as Pakistan scored an average total of 118 for the loss of five wickets.

Having suffered an embarrassing defeat to New Zealand in the opening match of the T20 World Cup 2016, a battered Indian cricket team look to bounce back in their all-important match against arch rivals Pakistan, at Kolkata on Saturday. The Indian cricket team has been on a roll in T20Is, but their shocking defeat to New Zealand by 47 runs has put them at the fourth position in the ICC T20 World Cup 2016 Points Table, whereas Pakistan, following their massive win over Bangladesh by 55 runs, are at the top.

India and Pakistan’s Women’s teams will play earlier in the day, at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, New Delhi, in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2016 match, where Pakistan managed to win by four wickets via D/L method. While Saturday promises to be an interesting day for cricket fans of these two nations, the result of the first game is unlikely to have any impact on the evening match between the men.
