What a statement Pakistan just made in the #ICCT20WorldCup2021 Now favourites in my opinion after that emphatic win over India. Just a super all round & impressive performance. Babar Azam continues to enhance his reputation as one of the best batters in the world in all forms !!— Shane Warne (@ShaneWarne) October 24, 2021
Former Indian player Mohammad Kaif also praised the excellent performance of the Pakistani team and said: "! This is all a classic performance from Pakistan."
This is all class from Pakistan, what a partnership!!— Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) October 24, 2021
My word, that is a phenomenal performance from @TheRealPCB 👏👏👏— Graeme Swann (@Swannyg66) October 24, 2021
What a way to end their World Cup jinx against India. Afridi struck the early blows to set up the game for Pakistan, and the openers left nothing to chance. Excellent batting from Babar & Rizwan. India have plenty of work ahead, but have the pedigree to bounce back quickly.— VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) October 24, 2021
Indian commentator Harsha Bhogle said, "India had no life in bowling and did not pose much of a challenge to the opposition.
India's bowling lacked any kind of zing today. There weren't many challenges thrown and that will engage the think tank far more than the batting which just came up against an inspired spell from an outstanding bowler.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) October 24, 2021
