India vs Pakistan: Virat Kohli scored an imperious century to steer an overall dominant India to an imposing 300 for 7 as they opened their ICC Cricket World Cup defence against Pakistan in a frenzied atmosphere at the Adelaide Oval on Sunday. In its turn, Pakistan imploded, losing wickets in clumps and thereafter having no one left to support skipper Misbah ul Haq who ended up playing a lone hand, but all in vain. (Check India vs Pakistan Scorecard)

Top class batsman Virat Kohli, who was coming off a run of low ODI scores in the buildup to the tournament, came to the crease with India at 34-1 and went on to share stands of 129 with Shikhar Dhawan (73) and 110 with Suresh Raina (74) before he was caught behind off Sohail Khan in the 46th over, triggering a flurry of late wickets. He was the first Indian batsman to score a century against Pakistan in a World Cup match.

India vs Pakistan: Highlights:

47th over – Yadav calmly claims a skier from Sohail Khan off Mohit Sharma as Pakistan are all out for 224, giving India a 76-run win. PAK: 224 all out

46th over – Misbah finally falls after a heroic 76 off 84 balls. He miscues a pull to mid-on giving Shami his fourth wicket. PAK: 220-9

45th over – Sohail Khan hits Yadav for a four as Pakistan need 81 runs off 30 balls. PAK: 220-8
