In a high-stakes showdown between India and Pakistan, young opener Shubman Gill found himself struggling that and got bowled in the 15th over of the match. Mirroring the dismissal style of Virat Kohli earlier in the innings, Gill’s fortunes took a turn for the worse as he inadvertently dragged the ball onto his stumps. Pakistan’s Haris Rauf notched up his second wicket of the day.

Gill’s valiant effort at the crease proved to be a testing one, as he faced a daunting 32 deliveries but managed to add just 10 runs to India’s total. His struggles were emblematic of the challenges faced by the Indian batting order, as wickets tumbled at regular intervals.

With the scoreboard now reading 72/4 after 15 overs, the pressure mounts on India to stage a spirited recovery from this precarious position. The match hangs in the balance, with both sides vying for supremacy in this thrilling encounter.
