This was a cricketing performance that will be etched in memory for years to come. The top four Indian batsmen all notched up scores exceeding 50, while the bowlers effectively restricted Pakistan to a mere 128 runs in their pursuit of India's target of 257.

After the match, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma heaped praise on the entire squad, reserving special commendation for KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, and Kuldeep Yadav.

"Fantastic performance, right from yesterday. When we started, we knew the wicket was good and we had to adjust with the rain, the two experienced (Kohli an Rahul) guys we knew they'd take time to get their eye in and then we can get going."

When questioned about Jasprit Bumrah's performance, Rohit expressed, "Looked good, he swung it both ways and he's worked really hard for the last 8-10 months. Bumrah is only 27, for him to miss games isn't ideal but the way he bowled showed what he is all about."

"Looking at how we batted, there were lots of positives with the openers and then Virat and KL. Virat's innings was brilliantly paced. And then KL, to get back from injury and then to know 5 minutes before the toss he's playing, to play that way shows the mindset of the player," Rohit Sharma concluded, clearly ecstatic about the team's remarkable performance.
