Fine contributions from Muhammad Fayaz (67) and Amir Ishfaq (45) helped Pakistn beat India by 31 runs in a league match in the 2002 World Cup for the Blind, which was played at the CPT-India Pistons Ground, Chennai on Sunday.
After being put in, Pakistan managed to post 258 thanks to Fayaz's and Ishfaq's contributions. Mohammad Nawaz (36) and M Ashraf Bhatti (30) also played a part in ensuring that their team set India a challenging victory target.
When India replied, they struggled to maintain the tempo despite a 30 from opener Rajendra Verma, a 43 from Sushil Gourd and a 52 from Vishal Kumar. As many as six run outs saw the hosts dismissed for 227 in 35.4 overs.
Fayaz was named Man of the Match for his efforts.
