ISLAMABAD -New Zealand took tips from Pakistani bowling in Champions Trophy finals to defeat India in Semifinals, Interesting revelations have been made.
New Zealand have qualified for the semi-finals by knocking out one of the tournament favorites, India on Wednesday.
It was probably the match of the tournament so far considering it had everything a cricket fan would want to see on the cricket field. From brilliant spells of bowling to comeback innings and eagle-eyed throws at crunch moments, the match kept every cricket fan in the world glued to their television screens.
The most interesting revelation about the match is that the New Zealand team watched the highlights of Pakistan-India Champions Trophy final before their crucial semi-final. Reports suggest that the most key learning from Pakistan’s victory over India was to remove the key Indian batsmen, especially Kohli with seam and swing early in the innings.
Mohammad Amir’s magical bowling spell inspired the likes of Trent Boult and Matt Henry to go down hard on the Indian top-order considering it was the only way to win against a team like India while defending a low total.
