Mohammad Hafeez’s innings of 61 is the highest by a Pakistan captain in Twenty20 Internationals, surpassing Shoaib Malik’s 57 against Sri Lanka at Johannesburg in 2007.
Mohammad Hafeez became the leading run-scorer for Pakistan in T20Is, moving ahead of Kamran Akmal. Now, Hafeez (872) and Shoaib Malik (870) hold the first two places for Pakistan when it comes to highest run tally.
The fourth wicket partnership of 106 runs between Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik is Pakistan’s best for this wicket in T20Is, beating the 101-run partnership between Younis Khan and Shoaib Malik against Sri Lanka at Johannesburg in 2007.
The above partnership is also the highest fourth wicket partnership against India for any side. The previous highest was 73 between Eoin Morgan and Ravi Bopara at Manchester in 2011.
Pakistan registered their first win over India in four attempts.
Mohammad Hafeez won his fifth Man of the Match award in Twenty20 Internationals. Now only Shahid Afridi has won awards than him for Pakistan; Umar Gul has also won five MoM awards.

Man-of-the-MatchMohammad Hafeez for his match winning 61-run knock.
Brief scores: India 133/9 in 20 overs (G Gambhir 43, A Rahane 42,U Gul 3/21, S Ajmal 2/25) lost to Pakistan 134/5 in 19.4 overs (M Hafeez 61, S Malik 57*, B Kumar 3/9) by 5 wickets
Hafeez: "It was a great effort we wanted to start the series well and we were great with the ball right from the very start. Mohammad Irfan is a surprise package and he showed just why today with some great bowling at the start. Saeed Ajmal and Umar Gul were also fantastic at the death. Myself & Shoaib Malik played very well, we took risks at the right time and ran between the wickets well. This is a great result for the whole nation and we are really pleased with the way we finished it."
Dhoni: "I think we should have got a lot more runs after getting off to a fantastic start. We were not able to capitalise on our openers good work and we should have easily got 15 or so more runs. We took a gamble bowling out the fast bowlers early but unfortunately their batsmen were too good today."
