India beat Pakistan by six runs in a low-scoring but tense T20 World Cup Group A encounter at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium where more than 34,000 fans were in attendance at the temporary arena.

Pakistan won the toss and elected to bowl first on a two-paced pitch where Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf picked up three wickets each while Rishabh Pant was India’s biggest contributor with a quick knock of 42 as they were dismissed for 119.

In response, Mohammad Rizwan laid the platform for the chase with a patient knock of 31 but Pakistan lost wickets at regular intervals while India’s fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah made crucial dismissals to finish with figures of 3-14.
