T20 World Cup 2024 Live Match Updates: India beat Pakistan by 6 runs

It's time for the next chapter in one of sports' most historic rivalry. India's unrivaled dominance against Pakistan in World Cup matches, whether T20 or 50-over, has been eroded in recent years. In the 2021 T20 World Cup, Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets to claim their first-ever victory over them in a World Cup game. But India recovered, winning a thrilling match at the MCG in the 2022 T20 World Cup. 

Virat Kohli's performance will be closely watched, especially because he will face Shaheen Afridi and old opponent Mohammad Amir when he begins the batting alongside skipper Rohit Sharma. Kohli did not play in the warm-up match against Bangladesh and was dismissed for a single run in five deliveries against Ireland. Rohit believes that Kohli is unbeatable in experience and has received adequate preparation to perform.
