A part of the failed campaign may have something to do with a few "what-if" moments. "Twenty-five extras is a bit too much in a game like that, and that's something that we certainly need to take care of in the future". No matter the conditions, you have to play good cricket.

Just two weeks ago, Pakistan were at a low ebb after crashing to a humiliating 124-run defeat against India in the group stage.

For India, pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya and spinner Kedar Jadhav took one wicket each.

India's lineup remained unchanged for the match, whereas Pakistan replaced Rumman Raees with Muhammad Amir.

Despite Hardik Pandya's 76 from 43 deliveries down the order, India could not rebuild after Amir's brilliance, and were beaten by 180 runs. Zaman made the most of the reprieve and registered his first boundary two-balls later.
