Rohit, Rahul steal show, get India off to ideal start against Pakistan

India thrash Pakistan, maintain perfect World Cup record India cruise past Pakistan at World Cup

India were heavy favourites going into the match and that showed in all facets of the game as India completely outplayed their neighbours in all facets of the game. Virat Kohli gave an update about it.

Kohli was also relieved that Kuldeep Yadav was back in form.

Victory in this rain-curtailed clash saw India, who have now won all seven of their World Cup matches against Pakistan, remain unbeaten after four pool games at this year's edition.

They were 166-6 after 35 overs when rain forced the players off the ground again and the revised target left them needing an impossible 136 off five overs. The incident took place right after India completed their innings and were ready to take the field.

Worryingly for India, paceman Bhuvneshwar Kumar limped off in the fifth over of Pakistan's chase with a hamstring injury that sidelined him from the rest of the match.

However, Vijay Shankar came on to bowl the remaining two balls of the 5th over and struck on his very first ball, trapping Imam-ul-Haq plumb in front of the stumps.

Opening the batting for the first time with K.L. Rahul in the absence of injured Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit allowed his partner to settle down and played the aggressor's role from the get-go. Undeterred, Fakhar Zaman put together a solid 104-run stand with Babar Azam although Babar was lucky to survive an LBW appeal after India decided not to review, with replays suggested he would have been out.

Wahab Riaz dismissed Rahul for 57 to end the 136-run stand but Rohit could not be denied another assured ton which he duly brought up in 85 balls.

Rohit's 24th ODI century was studded with 14 boundaries and three effortless sixes.

Mohammad Hafeez was caught at deep square leg before Shoaib Malik played on for his second successive duck - a wicket greeted with huge roars by the massed ranks of India fans in a capacity crowd, with an estimated one billion watching on television.

He joined an elite list of cricketers, becoming only the fourth player to aggregate 2,000 runs in One-Day Internationals against Australia in India's last game after their tie against New Zealand was washed off. He missed an attempted hook shot off Mohammad Amir but walked off, believing he'd edged the ball behind to the wicketkeeper.
