Bangalore: India lost to arch rival Pakistan on Friday by eight wickets in the T20 World Cup for blind league match here.

Chasing a target of 251 after restricting India to 250 for two wickets in the 20 stipulated overs at the Aditya Birla sports ground, Pakistan cruised to victory in 18.5 overs losing only two wickets.

Though Pakistan began the chase losing an early wicket of Aleem Murtaza, opener Mohammad Akram (partial vision) and Aamir Ishfaq (totally blind) rattled the Indian bowlers by scoring merrily to register a century partnership for the second wicket before Akram was run out for 92 off 48 balls.
