Pakistan won the toss and put India to bat first.
The decision to bowl first turned out to be a good omen as Shaheen Shah Afridi took the early wickets of KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma.
Rohit went for a duck and KL Rahul managed to score three runs only.
Pakistani cricket fans were quick to react and praise Afridi for his remarkable deliveries.
