Another student said, “The local Punjabis came to our rescue. They tried to save us from these attacks.” Several other students told that they have spoken to the college administration and they have been assured that the matter will be taken seriously. Let us tell you that at least six Kashmiri students have been injured in this incident.

The only intervention of local Punjabi can help to stop the attack and Punjab Police and college officials are also involved and they have promised to take the matter seriously and take strict action against the perpetrators.

Indian team seen under pressure

Shaheen Afridi managed to get Kohli out from the first over in the 19th over. It was Kohli who sometimes took the Indian team to the score of 151 with the help of Suryakumar Yadav (11) and sometimes Rishabh Pant (39) and sometimes Ravindra Jadeja (13).

Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant shared a 53-run partnership.

Pakistan’s team looked strong on every front in this match. In the first three overs, Shaheen Shah Afridi took two wickets and put India under pressure.

Captain Virat Kohli also accepted this in the press conference. He said that “we could not do what we wanted on the field and losing three wickets, in the beginning, makes it difficult to come back”.

The Indian team could not show great performance with the bat, but it was expected that it would definitely show some talent with the bowling as it had given place to three fast bowlers and two spinners in the playing-11.

On one hand, there were fast bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Mohammed Shami and on the other, there were spinners in the form of Varun Chakravarthy and Ravindra Jadeja. But in comparison to the batsmen, the bowlers could not show anything amazing and could not take even a single wicket.

Captain Kohli got overs from four different bowlers in the first four overs, but he did not get any success in this.
