Pakistan routs India to break world cup jinx
India was crushed by 10 wickets by rivals Pakistan in the Twenty20 World Cup.
Captain Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan steered Pakistan to their first ever win over India in World Cups with a clinical performance in Dubai.
Openers Babar (68) and Rizwan (79) steered Pakistan to their target of 152 with 13 balls to spare.

India came into the game with a 12-0 unbeaten record against their rivals in T20 and 50-over World Cups, but Pakistan broke the jinx.
