After this match, such a question was asked to Team India captain Virat Kohli in the press conference, before answering which he laughed on his face and he stopped speaking to the reporter with his answer. Virat was asked that there is a lot of talk about Ishan Kishan not being included in the playing XI, can Ishan get a place in the team by dropping Rohit Sharma in the next matches. On this Virat laughed and he said that this is a very brave question.

Virat wrote in response, 'I landed with the team which was the best in my eyes, what do you think about this? Would you drop Rohit Sharma from T20 International? That too after what he did for us in the last match. Incredible! If you want controversy, let me know first, I will answer accordingly. Rohit Sharma was the victim of a golden duck in this match. On the very first ball, he gave his wicket to Shaheen Shah Afridi without opening the account.

Shaheen bowled superbly and after dismissing Rohit in the first over, KL Rahul also showed the way to the pavilion on the very first ball of his next over. Both Rohit and Rahul were in-form batters, and Shaheen put India on the backfoot by getting both of them out till the score of six runs. Captain Virat Kohli played an innings of 57 runs. India scored 151 for seven in 20 overs, in reply, Pakistan achieved the target in 17.5 overs without losing a wicket.
