New Delhi. Such matches are rarely seen, where a team has won on the basis of fielding. Although fielding turns the match, but the entire match has been won on the basis of fielding, such matches are only counted and one of the matches of this count is between India and Pakistan (India vs Pakistan) on 13 April 1984. The match played in Sharjah, where India snatched victory from Pakistan’s jaws only and only on the basis of fielding.
The match of Rothman Cup was played between India and Pakistan. It did not take long for India to become the world champion. Kapil Dev was not a part of that series. The team came on the field under the captaincy of Sunil Gavaskar. Batting first, India scored 188 runs.
Fans were also disappointed due to recognition
India could not give a bigger target to Pakistan. Indian fans were also disappointed because the target was not big and the match from above was also being played on Friday. The break time used to be longer due to Friday prayers and the fans believed that no one can stop Pakistan from winning on Friday.
Pakistan team came to chase the target and its 4 wickets fell within 100 runs. Nobody believed it. India put pressure on Pakistan only by fielding. India scored 4 runs out and Surender Khanna did 2 stumpings. That is, Team India took 6 wickets only with its best fielding and defeated Pakistan by 54 runs.
