Coming to the match, India were in trouble throughout the chase of 160, but Kohli first played an anchor role, and then he took on the mantle of hitting the big ones, and in the end, it was his class that helped India edge past Pakistan.
Earlier, Arshdeep Singh and Hardik Pandya took three wickets each as India restricted Pakistan to 159/8 in 20 overs.
For Pakistan, Shan Masood and Iftikhar Ahmad managed to score respective half-centuries as their side reached a fighting total, after the reliable opening pair of captain Babar Azam and wicket-keeper batter Mohammad Rizwan was sent back early by India's young pace sensation Arshdeep Singh.
