NEW YORK (Dunya News) - India successfully defended 119-run target at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York to beat Pakistan by six runs in what turned out to be a low-scoring thriller of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 on Sunday. 

Pakistan displayed a stunning performance with ball as they restricted India to 119 runs on the board in 19 overs. 

However, India's Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya delivered magical bowling spells as they dismissed the Team Green to just 113. 

Naseem Shah put in a valiant fight at the end with bat as he remained unbeaten on 10 off 4 balls. But his performance could guide his side to grab the victory against arch-rival. 

After the unexpected defeat, Naseem could not control his emotions as he broke into tears while returning to pavilion. 

A video circulating on social media shows the 21-year-old pacer in tears as his teammate Shaheen Shah Afridi tries to console him. 

After the video went viral on social media, fans, who were slamming Pakistan over losing the match to India, lent support to Naseem Shah. Here's how social media reacted:
