This remarkable victory ensured the Men in Green stayed undefeated, marking their fifth consecutive win in the tournament.

While chasing a massive target of 185 runs, the Green Shirts displayed a solid batting performance, achieving the target in the 15th over to claim the medal.

Opening batters, Mohammad Ullah and Nisar Ali laid a solid foundation for the national team, reaching the 50-run mark in just 27 deliveries.

Indian bowlers conceded 42 runs as extras, providing a significant advantage to the Pakistan side to chase the target easily.

Key contributions from Mohammad Salman, who scored 48 runs off 25 balls, and Munjir, who made 41 runs off 12 balls, took Pakistan over the finish line.
