India's batting imploded in the opening stages of their T20 World Cup match against Pakistan.

Star batter Virat Kohli, who struggled against Ireland in the first encounter, fell for a mere 4 runs off 3 balls. Naseem Shah delivered the fiery spell, with Kohli miscuing a lofted shot straight to cover point.

This dismissal marked only the second time Kohli fell to Pakistan in a T20 World Cup.

The pressure intensified further as fellow opener Rohit Sharma departed soon after, scoring just 13 off 12 balls. Shaheen Afridi claimed the wicket, leaving Rohit's wife Ritika Sajdeh visibly stunned.
