Babar Azam and co created history on Sunday, October 24 becoming the first Pakistan team to beat India in a World Cup game, breaking the 29-year losing streak in the ongoing ICC Men's T20 World Cup. Babar, who remained unbeaten scoring 68 runs was the chief architect for his side's win.

Speaking after the game to his teammates in the dressing room, Babar warned the team to not gett too over-excited and focus on winning the World Cup. He said that the match was over, now they had to focus on the next game.

"Look guys, this win was not a result of any individual performance. We gave a complete team performance and we do not have to let go of this. This is just a start, enjoy it, but do not get over-excited after beating India. We need to look ahead and our focus is to win the T20 World Cup. We will never be relaxed, just look to give your 100 percent. Please, do not get overexcited.

I'm saying it against and again, because it's our habit (of playing inconsistent cricket) and we have to change that. We will celebrate tonight but our focus will shift to the next game in two days time," he further added.

Team India were pegged back early by the left-arm pacer Shaheen Afridi, who removed Rohit Sharma for a duck in the very first over and clean bowled KL Rahul on the first ball of his next over as the men in blue couldn't recover from the same.

The rebuilding phase got prolonged for India as they lost Suryakumar Yadav as well in the powerplay. Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant helped their side get to a total of 151 runs but it wasn't enough as Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam breezed through to the target with immaculate ease.
