Rohit Sharma scored his second century of the tournament which helped India to an emphatic 89-run win over Pakistan in a rain-effected clash in Manchester.
Sharma was phenomenal for his side once again. He scored his second century of the tournament and formed part of two crucial partnerships – 136 with KL Rahul and 98 with India captain Virat Kohli.
This took India to 234 before he was the second wicket to fall.
Sharma hit 140 off 113 balls (14 fours and three sixes).
Next best for India was Kohli who scored 77 off 65 balls, followed by Rahul who racked up 57 off 78 balls in what was his first match in the tournament.
India scored a mammoth 336-5, a daunting total for Pakistan to chase.
Mohammad Amir was a bright light for Pakistan again with 3-47.
Pakistan’s chase was admirable but hindered by rain. This saw India claim an emphatic 89-run win by the DLS method.
Fakhar Zaman was their best scorer with 62, while Babar Azam and Imad Wasim contributed with 48 and 46 respectively.
Pakistan made it to 212-6 in their readjusted 40 overs, to see India remain unbeaten and take third spot on the World Cup standings after four games.
