India-Pak T20 World Cup thriller

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma relied on bowler Jasprit Bumrah to swing the match in India's favour, and he did. In a nerve-wracking battle, Pakistan could not hold their nerve, while chasing 120 runs and collapsed after a strong start. Bumrah was at his most lethal, taking three wickets for just 14 runs in four overs at an economy rate of 3.5.

Anushka Sharma watched the India-Pakistan T20 World Cup match in New York and photos of her from the stands were all over social media. Her reaction to cricketer-husband Virat Kohli's early dismissal also grabbed attention on social media.
