India vs Pakistan: Highlights

00:05 (IST)17 Jun 2019
Rohit Sharma- The Man of the Match!

"Happy with the way we played as a team. We know at times, it can get frustrating having lost out in the previous game. We had the intent of playing a solid game today. I was unhappy (when I got out), particularly the way I played that shot. He just pushed mid-on back and brought fine leg in, a little misjudgment from my side. When you're set you want to get as many runs as possible. Trust me, wasn't thinking of a double hundred. Got out at the wrong time, the partnership was becoming solid and we wanted to kill the game. Rahul played very well, took some time early on, probably what was required. Can't play shots straightaway. The idea was to see what is happening. We got a good start and built on from there."

Emphatic win for India!

This has been another comprehensive India win set up by Rohit and Rahul. Then Kohli did what he does to set up a mammoth total. The only stage when India were challenged was during the course of an industrious second-wicket stand between Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman. Then they lost four wickets for next-to-nothing and it all came crashing down.

And India make WC lead 7-0 over Pak

India beat Pakistan by 89 runs (DLS) in the rain-curtailed match at Manchester on Sunday.  In a sequence that first started in 1992, Pakistan are yet to beat India in a World Cup game in seven attempts.

23:51 (IST)16 Jun 2019
KL Rahul drops an easy catch!

37.4: Chahal to Shadab Khan, 2 runs, dropped. A compulsive slog, an obvious miscue and then some really sloppy stuff in the deep from Rahul, who gets to the ball well, but dropped.

23:35 (IST)16 Jun 2019
Target goes out of Pakistan's reach!

Play to resume in 10 minutes. Will be a 40-over game. Pakistan need 136 off 30 balls. The revised target is 302.

23:27 (IST)16 Jun 2019
Covers are coming off

Live visuals from Manchester has Kohli chilling in the dressing room. He exudes the body language of someone who knows there's little chance of a resumption. Some of the players have changed into their training gear. Is that a sign?

Umpires pondering over options!

The umpires are having their under-umbrealla conference, with one of them trying to squeeze his umbrella into the outfield to judge the level of damage. But the covers are firmly on, and just like the covers, the crowd too don't seem to be in a hurry to go anywhere.

What if play does not resume?

Rain has stopped play, and India will win by 86 runs should play not resume. We will keep you updated, and be back should we have further information.

Give me some sunshine, pleads Kohli

Wasim Akram on air

"Indian cricket invested everything in their first class cricket over the years. And we as Pakistan have hardly done anything for our first-class cricket. We have been changing it every year. Our first-class cricket has been run by some random journalist for some odd reason and why for so many years."

Weather gods are here again!

Play has stopped again due to rain. It seems, weather gods were feeling ignored and they have arrived again to steal the limelight.Pakistan are 86 runs behind currently. Par score is 252.

Shankar sends Sarfaraz back!

Shankar to Sarfaraz, out Bowled!! 7-0 is on the cards folks! Sarfaraz goes for 12(30). The Pakistan captain drags on. Looked to drive expansively through the offside. gets an inside edge instead, and the ball clatters into leg stump. Another nail in an already tightly secured Pakistan coffin. Second wicket to Vijay Shankar and with this Pakistan's tail exposed.

Pakistan's reaction to their fall of wickets!
22:09 (IST)16 Jun 2019
Pandya outplays Pakistan!

Hardik Pandya's two off two takes Pakistan into deep trouble. Pandya first got Hafeez out on 26.5 over and then with the very next ball he sent Shoaib Malik back to the pavilion. He bowled him out for a duck. Pakistan are now 132/5 in 28 overs.

21:58 (IST)16 Jun 2019
Kuldeep strikes again!

After sending Babar Azam, Kuldeep now claims Fakhar Zaman's wicket. Kuldeep Yadav to Fakhar Zaman, out Caught by Chahal!! One brings two! Kuldeep has got rid of both set batsmen. Pakistan sink further as Fakhar departs after playing a valuable knock of 62. Attempts a sweep against the wrist spinner and gets a top-edge towards short fine leg. Chahal makes sure to hold on to it and there will be two new batsmen at the crease. Spinners weaving their magic for the Men in Blue. Pakistan 126/3 in 26 overs.

21:51 (IST)16 Jun 2019
Kuldeep does it for India!

When It was growing big for Pakistan, Kuldeep did it for India. He sent Babar Azam back to pavilion on 48 and broke their over 100-run partnership. Pakistan are now 117/2 in 24 overs. An incredible delivery from a supremely talented bowler. Everything about this delivery is the kind of stuff dreams are made of for a left-arm wrist spinner. Nicely tossed up, the ball drifts away gently across Babar, pitches and then wickedly spins back in. Babar is looking to get outside the line to block, but is completely deceived by the dip, and then because he's played down the wrong line with a bit of gap between bat and pad, there's no second line of defence. Sneaks through the gap, clean bowled. Wow, what a ball. Magnificent.

21:39 (IST)16 Jun 2019
Fifty for Fakhar Zaman!

Chahal to Fakhar Zaman, SIX, first fifty for Fakhar Zaman in World Cup. Down on his knee as he slogsweeps the tossed up delivery over deep mid-wicket for half a dozen, nice way to get to the milestone for the southpaw. Completes his 50 in 59 balls. Growing tall for his team.

21:32 (IST)16 Jun 2019
Stumping appeal

Kuldeep gets vicious turn off the pitch! Fakhar Zaman gets back into his crease JUST IN TIME. Dhoni broke the bails but a millisecond too late. Zaman survives. Pakistan can breathe easy again.
