India completed Hat-Trick of victories against Pakistan in World T20 Tournaments, as they beat Pakistan by eight wickets in their Group Two World Cup Twenty20 Super Eight Match at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.
This was a game where one of two jinxes would be survived. It was India, who posted their First Super Eights win in World Twenty20s since 2007. Pakistan are still without a win over India in any World Cup Match. Pakistan were every bit a team with a bogey attached to them. They tried flamboyance with the bat and failed, and didn't show heart to back up their talented bowling. India, on the other hand, did the small things well after a nervous start, and were there to accept every opportunity that Pakistan presented.
