Though India won the hig-voltage clash against Pakistan in Aisa Cup by 8 wickets, but it was India’s spinner Yuzvendra Chahal who stole the show with his brilliant gesture towards Pakistani player Usman Khan Shinwari.
During the 43rd over of the game, Usman was batting with Mohammad Amir with Pakistan struggling on 162/9. Chahal was fielding right next to Usman, who was on the non-striker’s end, and tied the Pakistani pacer’s shoelaces during the game. The picture of Chahal tying Usman’s laces went viral on social media with the fans calling it the moment of the match.
Here how fans are reaction on Twitter:

Earlier, backed with strong bowling performance, India thrashed arch-rivals Pakistan with over 100 balls to spare.
Asked to field first, three-wicket hauls from pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar and part-time off-spinner Kedar Jadhav enabled India to restrict Pakistan to a paltry 162. Bhuvneshwar returned figures of 3/15 while Jadhav got 3/23.
In reply, a quickfire half-century by Rohit Sharma and his 86-run opening stand with Shikhar Dhawan saw India overhaul the target with a whopping 21 overs to spare.
