In the 19th game of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, India are playing against Pakistan at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, New York. While the match is way out of India's hands, and out of several failed performances, Shivam Dube has come under fans' radar for his poor performance and catch drop. When he came out to bat, India was struggling. He couldn't contribute with the bat and got dismissed on three runs.

However, while fielding, he did get a chance to undo his batting blunder but failed miserably. In Jasprit Bumrah's ball, Mohammed Rizwan flicked the ball towards the fine leg where Dube was, and he could have taken the catch, but he failed to. He dropped a sitter, which infuriated the fans. 

Rizwan had quite a good performance against India, and after a dropped catch, he became even more cautious. He has kept the batting going since the first over and played some really good shots. Until now, he has scored 28 runs off 37 balls, including one boundary and one six. Considering the pitch and the outfield, he has played one responsible innings, thanks to Dube. 

Pakistan is heading toward a win against India

After a fantastic and mindblowing bowling, Pakistan batters are showing their skills and striking the Indian bowlers out of the park. While Babar Azam, Usman Khan, and Fakhar Zaman went early for just 13 runs, Mohammad Rizwan has been handling the match from the other end. He has played one dream inning for the men in green and is all set to take the match home. 

In 12 overs, Pakistan has scored 73 runs and is comfortably winning the match. Only a hat trick can get India back into the game, or some solid bowling performance by Jasprit Bumrah or Hardik Pandya. Even though the target is low, the match seems pretty thrilling because of the pitch and the outfield.
