ICC World Cup 2019: India beat Pakistan by 89 runs in a rain-marred match at Old Trafford, Manchester on Sunday. Virat Kohli and his team were clinical in their performance against Pakistan as both batsmen and bowlers delivered at the right time. India remained on top throughout the match.

Chasing 337, Pakistan seemed to be going well as Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam put up a 100+ partnership for the third wicket. But the Indian bowlers kept things tight and the required run-rate kept rising. Kuldeep Yadav broke the Zaman-Azam partnership dismissing both the batsmen in the same over. Hardik Pandya took used the bounce and pace on offer to pick two quick wickets. Pakistan slumped from 117/1 to 129/5. Virat Kohli marshalled his troops well and the bowlers did not allow Pakistan to run away with the match at any stage.

Vijay Shankar gave India the early breakthrough dismissing Imam ul Haq off the first ball of his spell. Shankar was forced into action after Bhuvneshwar walked off the field with a hamstring injury.

The Indian team management will be hoping that Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s injury is not serious as they have already lost Shikhar Dhawan for the next few matches. Both these players are an important part of the Indian team and captain Kohli along with the team management will want them in the side if they make it to the playoffs.

Earlier, riding on Rohit Sharma’s 140 off 113 balls India managed to post 336 runs on the board. Indian captain Virat Kohli and KL Rahul smashed fifties which made sure India was on top of their game throughout the first half of the innings.

India had last faced Pakistan in the 2015 World Cup at the Adelaide Oval where then vice-captain Virat Kohli had smashed 107 off 126 balls to help India win the match. He was well supported by Shikhar Dhawan and Suresh Raina as both batsmen scored 73 and 74 respectively to help India reach the 300-run mark.

With the third win in the World Cup India now has 7 points from 4 matches and are still unbeaten in the tournament. India will take on Afghanistan next on June 22, 2019, at the Rose Bowl in Southampton.
