India vs Pakistan Davis Cup 2024: The Indian tennis team has gone to Pakistan after 60 years to participate in the Davis Cup. India has defeated Pakistan at home. By defeating Pakistan, the Indian team has qualified for World Cup Group-1. All the players performed strongly for India. India defeated Pakistan 4-0 with easy wins by Yuki Bhambri and Saketh Myneni and a winning debut by Nicky Poonacha.
Yuki Bhambri and Saketh Myneni gave strong performance
After taking a 2-0 lead on Saturday, Yuki and Saketh continued India’s dominance over Pakistan in the match by defeating the host team’s pair of Muzammil Mortaza and Akil Khan 6-2 7-6(5) on Sunday. Pakistan fielded Aqeel in place of Barkat Ullah for the doubles match as they wanted an experienced player in this do-or-die match. Defeat in this match would have decided India’s victory. However, Yuki and Saket did not give any chance to the host pair and the difference between the two teams was clearly visible in this match. The Pakistani pair had a lot of trouble facing Saket’s service. He lost very few points on his serve and also performed brilliantly at the net. The returns of the Indian players were also excellent and Yuki several times hit winners between the two Pakistani players.
Indian pair did wonders
Yuki and Saket maintained a strong hold on the match from the beginning. He took a strong lead of 4-1 by breaking Akil in the first and fifth games. In the first game, Akil gave two breakpoints to the Indian pair by hitting a backhand outside. Saketh hit a shot outside on the first point but then broke the serve with an easy volley winner on Akil’s weak return.
In the fifth game the Pakistani legend lost his serve again. Her smash went over the baseline at 30-30 and Yuki sealed the game with a powerful forehand winner between the two opponents. In the second set, Akil started saving his serve and took the match to the tiebreaker. The Pakistani pair started well and took a lead of 4-2 but Yuki and Saket made the score 5-5. India won the match and the encounter with Akil’s double fault on match point.
India registered its eighth victory
Then 28-year-old Poonacha was fielded to play the meaningless fourth match against Mohammad Shoaib, who won 6-3, 6-4. After this the fifth match was not played. Mohammad Shoaib could not stand in front of Poonacha. He was seen struggling with his service. This is India’s eighth win against Pakistan in eight matches in Davis Cup. The Indian team will now take part in World Group One in September while Pakistan will remain in Group Two.
