India beats Pakistan by five wickets in a tense chase

India had the option of bowling Jadeja at No. 4 to force Pakistan to change its tactics. However, Jadeja’s poor record against spin and his ability to use his feet against Nawaz ensured that the tourists could only get the target with one over to spare.
Pakistan’s batting line-up had a difficult time getting the required run rate in the final overs of the match, but the tailenders were able to restrict the Pakistani batsmen to a modest total. Babar Azam’s men opted to bat, with Mohammad Rizwan top-scoring with 71. The Indian bowlers gave away eight extra runs in the final over, six of which were wides.
Yuvraj Singh’s top scores in the t20 match

Yuvraj has a good record against Pakistan and is one of the best players in the world. His knock of 72 runs in the first ODI against Pakistan in 2012 was an example of his brilliance. He also took three wickets for an average of 26. Yuvraj was at his best against Pakistan in Ahmedabad in 2012. He smashed seven sixes in the innings and guided India to a victory.
After Virat Kohli was run-out, Yuvraj came to life and was aided by Mahendra Singh Dhoni. They put on a 97-run stand in 44 balls which proved to be the difference between victory and defeat. Pakistan’s bowlers, led by Shahid Afridi, launched into Yuvraj’s opening partnership. Then, Ishant Sharma and Ashok Dinda were bowled. Eventually, R Ashwin came in to halt the run-flow.
