India dominated Pakistan once again in a world cup match. Despite many expectations on a close contest, India simply outdid Pakistan in all the three departments.

After winning the toss, Sarfaraz Ahmed decided to bowl first. Indian openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma were impressive with their approach. Both the players were cautious in their batting and took no risks.

They put up a 136 run stand for the opening wicket. Meanwhile, KL Rahul who was promoted to open, scored his first World Cup fifty on the day. On the other hand, Rohit Sharma looked at his best in this world cup.

He scored 140 runs and got ample support from skipper Virat Kohli. Few knocks in the lower order coupled with Virat Kohli’s impressive batting helped India post a commendable 336/5 in their 50 overs. Mohammad Amir was the best bowler for Pakistan with three wickets.

While chasing 337, Indian bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah started off well. However, Bhuvneshwar got injured in the fifth over. Vijay Shankar was called on to complete the reminder of the over. But the talented all rounder dismissed Imam Ul Haq with his first ball in world cup cricket.

But Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman have built a good partnership for the second wicket. Both the players laid foundation but too much of time to build it. Eventually, both the players succumbed to the magic of Kuldeep Yadav succession.

On the other hand, Mohammed Hafeez and Shoaib Malik were dismissed off successive deliveries in Hardik Pandya over. This had literally put curtains on any hopes of Pakistan’s win.

Indian bowlers completely dismantled Pakistan middle order batting in no time.

Vijay Shankar then came onto scalp Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz’s wicket. But rain gods once again made their appearance on the day. They were reeling at 166/6 in 35 runs at the time of rain interruption.

Revised target for Pakistan meant they need to score 136 runs from just 30 balls. India eventually won the game with 89 runs.

Here is how Twitter reacted to India’s win against Pakistan
