Hello and welcome to Edgbaston in Birmingham for the last of the first

:00:17.:00:29.

set of group matches in the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy. India and Pakistan

:00:30.:00:33.

are the last two teams to get the campaign underway in a fixture that

:00:34.:00:37.

is always played in front of large, passionate crowds, and today is no

:00:38.:00:41.

exception. As defending champions and currently third in the world in

:00:42.:00:45.

the rankings, India start as firm favourites while Pakistan have

:00:46.:00:48.

struggled with the limited overs game in recent years and only

:00:49.:00:51.

scraped into the tournament, claiming the final spot ahead of the

:00:52.:00:57.

West Indies. After today, every team will have played one game and the

:00:58.:01:00.

group a resumes with Australia taking on Bangladesh at the Oval.

:01:01.:01:05.

Each team faces the other sides in the group ones with the two top

:01:06.:01:08.

sides qualifying for the semifinals. The biggest headline of the Indian

:01:09.:01:13.

team selection is the omission of Ravi Ashwin with an unusual wealth

:01:14.:01:16.

of seam bowlers to choose from, Mohammed Shami is the man who misses

:01:17.:01:23.

out today. For Pakistan, as Ali who was Riise Lee removed as captain is

:01:24.:01:26.

selected at top of the order and Chamakh Khanna is preferred to

:01:27.:01:34.

Ashraf. Pakistan won the toss and elected to field first on what is

:01:35.:01:38.

expected to be the usual good batting wicket at Edgbaston which

:01:39.:01:40.

could prove an important want to win as the forecast is for scattered

:01:41.:01:45.

showers after a sunny start, so rain interruption is a real possibility

:01:46.:01:47.

and Duckworth-Lewis might come into play. Before the match began, both

:01:48.:01:54.

teams and a near capacity Edgbaston crowd observed a minute's silence

:01:55.:01:58.

for those affected by last night's terrorist attacks in London.

:01:59.:02:12.

The umpires for this one are a razzmatazz and Damascene -- Iran is

:02:13.:02:22.

the first ball of this big match. Excellent start. The angle across.

:02:23.:02:37.

The first over completed, 0-0. 28 years of age, and you don't see that

:02:38.:02:46.

much in these conditions, the left-arm spinner starting with good

:02:47.:02:52.

economy, 24 wickets. Best of 5-14, a specialist in these conditions and

:02:53.:02:57.

at this time of the game. A mis-field. A short boundary on that

:02:58.:03:08.

side. Pakistan doing better than they did a few weeks ago and the

:03:09.:03:16.

Caribbean. -- in the Caribbean. That will go all the way to the fence. A

:03:17.:03:25.

first boundary for Rohit Sharma. Ahmed Boles the bouncer. I sharp

:03:26.:03:34.

one. -- a sharp one. That is exactly where it is suppose to go. Off the

:03:35.:03:46.

back foot, through the gap and it will go all the way to the boundary.

:03:47.:03:53.

Easy pickings for Rohit Sharma. Just the sort of start India needed. The

:03:54.:04:04.

length was too short from Iman. Allowed the shops to be played

:04:05.:04:11.

beautifully. -- this shot -- the shot. Missed it. Just wide.

:04:12.:04:24.

Outside edge, Rohit Sharma. Poor captaincy from Sarfraz. A good start

:04:25.:04:39.

this, from Pakistan. A little bit sloppy in the field. We spoke about

:04:40.:04:45.

how important it was for Pakistan to be sharp in the field. It is a good

:04:46.:04:51.

guide to see if they are switched on or not. India tend to start off slow

:04:52.:05:00.

in the first ten overs, they like to get themselves settled and then

:05:01.:05:03.

launch as the game goes on, slowly building up through the overs.

:05:04.:05:10.

Exquisitely timed. Such a good player to watch. Oh, boy, great

:05:11.:05:22.

timing. I have always been a big fan of Rohit Sharma. He's always been a

:05:23.:05:28.

class act. When he starts to play cricket shots are not go too hard,

:05:29.:05:32.

that's when he is at his most dangerous. Nothing more than just a

:05:33.:05:37.

forward push. That gets smacked over mid-wicket. Has the natural angle,

:05:38.:05:49.

and he hit it so sweet. First boundary, but he just got a little

:05:50.:05:57.

bit tight into the pads. That gave him the chance to get out there and

:05:58.:05:59.

fetch it. That is an inside edge, but only a

:06:00.:06:10.

single. Not entirely in control of that on that occasion. As we are

:06:11.:06:18.

speaking now, the lights have come on and there is a bit of drizzle. A

:06:19.:06:29.

few umbrellas have gone up. It is coming down pretty heavy now. The

:06:30.:06:43.

players are off. The rain is turning out to be a spoilsport. There was a

:06:44.:06:51.

chance of rain and play being suspended, but not that early in the

:06:52.:07:00.

piece. There is the batting card so far.

:07:01.:07:13.

Anier could have had a few wickets, beat the bat a couple of times --

:07:14.:07:26.

Anier. -- Amir. The rain is staying away for the time being, and Sarfraz

:07:27.:07:33.

will be quite happy with that little paws that Pakistan were given.

:07:34.:07:40.

That is a no ball and a free hit. You have to do better than that.

:07:41.:08:05.

Clean as a whistle, down the ground, almost six. The 50 comes up for

:08:06.:08:16.

India. At times he looks celestial. We talked about the no balls,

:08:17.:08:21.

generally a no ball bouncer, and he didn't quite get it quite right.

:08:22.:08:29.

Just one bounce, then nearly all the way.

:08:30.:08:36.

Yes, no better player in world cricket to watch when he plays shots

:08:37.:08:44.

like this. Hits the ball incredibly hard, Rohit Sharma. Over pitching.

:08:45.:08:53.

That is a poor delivery, eight wonderful sweep and the distance is

:08:54.:08:59.

fine. That brings up the 50 as well for Rohit Sharma. What a way to get

:09:00.:09:03.

there. Probably the worst ball he has bowled. He picked out that at

:09:04.:09:20.

deep mid-wicket. 95-1, India. No run, and that is the end of the

:09:21.:09:23.

ninth over. India in a very comfortable position. -- 95-1. That

:09:24.:09:36.

is going to be for. -- four runs. Too short. That is what you are

:09:37.:09:48.

going to get. Going to try bowled fast and run into the wicket. So

:09:49.:09:58.

difficult to bowl two, Rohit Sharma. Really well played. The 100

:09:59.:10:08.

partnership comes up. Darwin and -- whose line has been slightly

:10:09.:10:11.

inaccurate, and India making the most of it. Did not want to get wide

:10:12.:10:17.

again, or short. He got two straight. She same short, different

:10:18.:10:34.

direction. We talked about how things had been at the top of the

:10:35.:10:39.

order your -- order. It's about the time and both of these guys are

:10:40.:10:43.

really getting on top of the Pakistani bowling attack. Maybe take

:10:44.:10:50.

some time away for some slower deliveries. A fumble, and an extra

:10:51.:10:58.

run, and the 50 comes up. Something about ICC tournaments and Dhawan

:10:59.:11:14.

just come together. Just 19. Balls. The strike rotation has been very

:11:15.:11:15.

good. The slower ball is driven down the

:11:16.:11:28.

off-side. Once again, sloppy. Going around to his left. Just going

:11:29.:11:34.

through his fingers. India are going along beautifully. That is six more.

:11:35.:11:50.

Terrific shot. Not a bad delivery. Class batting. Clearly a plan

:11:51.:11:58.

against the leg-spinner. That's the third time they've done this in the

:11:59.:12:03.

Champions Trophy, Rohit Sharma and Dhawan. And that will be more runs.

:12:04.:12:10.

Just a fraction straight, and an excellent stroke.

:12:11.:12:17.

And now straight down his throat. Can you don't -- believe it? He

:12:18.:12:26.

deserves that. Just slipped at the hands, fault ask, and unfortunately

:12:27.:12:31.

for Dhawan, straight down his throat -- a full toss. Could have heated

:12:32.:12:42.

anywhere. -- heated anywhere. -- heat it anywhere.

:12:43.:12:49.

He will be disappointed, Dhawan. He knew the young fellow was

:12:50.:12:59.

struggling. He has given India a platform for a big total.

:13:00.:13:09.

The skipper, Virat Kohli, comes to the crease. A fantastic position,

:13:10.:13:20.

and look at that record. This will go to the boundary, probably. He

:13:21.:13:24.

plays it fine. They chase for Hassan. Not big boundaries this

:13:25.:13:32.

side. It is all too easy. Virat Kohli showing the absolute class

:13:33.:13:37.

ears. We have seen a class act so far -- he is.

:13:38.:13:41.

We have seen lots of big runs a big totals in the tournament. So you can

:13:42.:13:55.

sit back, and you often see that, 32 overs completed, 171 - one. The bad

:13:56.:14:01.

news is that the players are walking. It's a real shame. The good

:14:02.:14:09.

news is that this ground, almost the entirety of the ground gets covered.

:14:10.:14:22.

The outfield does not get drenched here, so that is great news. So the

:14:23.:14:32.

covers get unrolled onto the plot. The numerous pitches here in

:14:33.:14:39.

England. India, having lost the toss, invited to bat first in this

:14:40.:14:45.

group B match. India's first game, and also Pakistan's. A partnership

:14:46.:14:51.

of 136 the first wicket that was a treat to watch. The umpires

:14:52.:14:57.

walk-out, checking the conditions. 49 overs left the last time we have

:14:58.:15:03.

looked, but now it has been reduced to 48 overs now. Five deliveries

:15:04.:15:07.

left in the over for Mohammad Amir. Some movement off the pitch. We have

:15:08.:15:24.

not seen that much. That is beautifully played. Boundary number

:15:25.:15:31.

seven for Rohit Sharma, and probably his best. It was in the air, but

:15:32.:15:40.

unfortunately in the gap, and he looked really good, the way he

:15:41.:15:44.

played. He has the ability to break the shackles. That will go for six.

:15:45.:15:55.

Helped on its way, short of the two boundaries. Talking of breaking the

:15:56.:15:59.

shackles, he has done that so stylishly. An off-drive, a cover

:16:00.:16:10.

drive, and this one, not too short. This should be tight. It will be

:16:11.:16:19.

tight. Drop and run from Kohli. I think he might have made his ground

:16:20.:16:31.

here. Keep that rolling through players. Thank you. Do you have a

:16:32.:16:37.

script -- split screen on that? -- keep that rolling through, please.

:16:38.:16:47.

OK, I am happy with that, we will go to the big screen and can you please

:16:48.:16:50.

load Out. It was always going to be a tough

:16:51.:17:08.

single. In the end, the bat was up and it was decreed as not hitting

:17:09.:17:13.

the turf, so it is a huge bonus for Pakistan as Rohit Sharma departs.

:17:14.:17:22.

Yuvraj seemed to take the first ball in the innings, and he gets driven

:17:23.:17:29.

down the ground for a single. He is a punishing one-day batsmen, Yuvraj

:17:30.:17:31.

Singh. He has found a very good angle, and

:17:32.:17:42.

he has half stroked it into the fence. That is how good a batsman

:17:43.:17:45.

hears. -- he is. That is a mis-hit, and Hasan Ali

:17:46.:18:03.

gets to the ball. He had plenty of time, and he slid and missed the

:18:04.:18:09.

catch. Nicely bowled again, another wrong. Tries to get it straight down

:18:10.:18:12.

the ground. Down it goes. That is a slower delivery and that

:18:13.:18:27.

is exquisitely timed. Just getting it all wrong, taking a lot of risk

:18:28.:18:36.

bowling that, that over. Hit hard down the ground from Yuvraj Singh.

:18:37.:18:49.

Look at this languid straight drive. A half attempt from Yuvraj to middle

:18:50.:18:57.

it, and once it was middle, it was gone. Oh, last ball, six. Yuvraj has

:18:58.:19:08.

timed it magnificently. A good over is spoiled late, and the craftiness

:19:09.:19:18.

and heating of Yuvraj has done it. -- he attained.

:19:19.:19:25.

Well, they drop it again. Pakistan's pour time on the field continues.

:19:26.:19:38.

Hasan Ali has dropped Yuvraj. Very early in this passage of play. The

:19:39.:19:52.

deep square leg goes behind. Strength, power, another boundary.

:19:53.:19:57.

That is how good he is and how dangerous he is in this situation,

:19:58.:20:01.

Yuvraj Singh. He is very, very dangerous. Does it go the distance?

:20:02.:20:12.

Yes, it does, easily. A 50 four Virat Kohli. That gets him going,

:20:13.:20:17.

because he's hit a good one after a while. Lens, slower delivery and on

:20:18.:20:22.

the up. This time it is through the

:20:23.:20:39.

mid-wicket. No chance. Same delivery, same result. 17 from the

:20:40.:20:52.

over. He is taking the ball was on. It races away. No chance. And a no

:20:53.:21:00.

ball as well. 21 from just six deliveries. Fall and wide, end of

:21:01.:21:09.

the bat. It raises away to the fence. Through the mid-wicket,

:21:10.:21:19.

clears it easily. Strong wrists. India are racing along.

:21:20.:21:24.

That is lovely, lovely from Virat Kohli. He has moved into the zone.

:21:25.:21:38.

There are four more deliveries in this over and Riaz has already gone

:21:39.:21:47.

for 14. Stand and deliver. That is the power and the strength.

:21:48.:21:58.

A 50 four Yuvraj Singh. And it has come in only 29 deliveries, a strike

:21:59.:22:08.

rate of 179, exactly what India required.

:22:09.:22:18.

They are thinking about a review. Hasan Ali wants a review. Yes, and

:22:19.:22:23.

Sarfraz goes for it. That is a fair delivery. We will

:22:24.:22:35.

move onto the vision. -- the spin vision. Could you just roll that

:22:36.:22:42.

back, please? Thank you, can we go to the leg side Hot Spot, please?

:22:43.:22:49.

Can we go to the other range, please? It certainly hit the floor.

:22:50.:22:58.

Carry through. Clearly no bat involved. We will go to ball

:22:59.:23:09.

tracking when ready, thank you. We have it pitching in line, and the

:23:10.:23:13.

impact is in line, and he is hitting the wickets. I will ask you to

:23:14.:23:22.

change your decision. A good innings from Yuvraj Singh, gone for 63. --

:23:23.:23:25.

53. This time, through the off-side. Go

:23:26.:23:34.

and fetch it. He has got the fine leg up. He pitches it up on the

:23:35.:23:45.

off-side and he picks the gap here. All the photographers, that is the

:23:46.:23:47.

one that will be in the morning paper tomorrow. Oh, lovely. Inside

:23:48.:23:57.

out from Virat Kohli. That is special. Hitting it over the covers.

:23:58.:24:02.

Not trying to hit it hard. Just letting the ball coming and making

:24:03.:24:07.

sure he gets underneath it. He whacks it through covers. Just

:24:08.:24:10.

opening the face. The square leg fielder comes in, the mid-off goes

:24:11.:24:20.

out, and the result doesn't matter. Has he hit this well enough? It

:24:21.:24:26.

looks as though he has again. He has put on a piece of power. That was

:24:27.:24:33.

always risky. A spinner bowling in the last over on the last -- good

:24:34.:24:40.

service to indium batsman. Into the stands, over mid-off and the captain

:24:41.:24:46.

watches it -- Indian batsman. Second one of the over. They don't

:24:47.:25:02.

go anywhere. 12 runs from two. Those kind of deliveries, they will

:25:03.:25:06.

disappear. Number three! Number three. And this time on the shorter

:25:07.:25:15.

side. The first two were over mid-off, and the next one over

:25:16.:25:19.

mid-wicket. Just walks it in and makes it into a length delivery and

:25:20.:25:24.

whacks it over mid-wicket. Packing a punch, Virat Kohli. Just putting a

:25:25.:25:35.

word into Virat Kohli's ear, maybe just getting a bit wet. And India

:25:36.:25:41.

would not mind that. It finds the fence. So it is six, six, six,.,

:25:42.:26:00.

four, four. India move on to three. -- 319-3. India made the most of the

:26:01.:26:06.

closing overs. Hardik Pandya taking them to 319-3 in their 48 overs. The

:26:07.:26:13.

Indian top for all made half centuries as they added a in the

:26:14.:26:18.

last ten overs, and 72 in the last four overs for the loss of just

:26:19.:26:23.

Yuvraj Singh 453. Kohli ended the innings undefeated on 81 and

:26:24.:26:27.

Pakistan paid dearly for dropping them both. Pakistan's misery was

:26:28.:26:34.

deepened when Mohammad Amir was off and then imagine limped off the

:26:35.:26:40.

field. The scorecard will made -- make bad reading. Shadab Khan was

:26:41.:26:47.

the pick of the bowlers taking 1-52, but this innings was all about the

:26:48.:26:52.

batsmen. I was lucky I got dropped, then capitalised in the end and then

:26:53.:26:59.

the partnerships allowed us to bat deep and get a very good score. It

:27:00.:27:03.

was a crafty piece of batting because you cover the stumps, so

:27:04.:27:08.

what was the purpose and logic behind that? I thought the ball was

:27:09.:27:14.

reversing a bit, and they were trying York is on the off-stump and

:27:15.:27:19.

then I thought I would just hit it -- your walkers.

:27:20.:27:21.

You have to see what the bowlers try and do, and some days it works, and

:27:22.:27:27.

someday it doesn't. Your assessment of the pitch? Because of the rain

:27:28.:27:36.

interrupting, it would give some to get some good runs, and hopefully

:27:37.:27:40.

with the new ball we will get some more pressure. The rain cleared up

:27:41.:27:44.

during the lunch break and the forecast looked bright of the

:27:45.:27:46.

remainder of the day. The weather delays meant Pakistan's target was

:27:47.:27:54.

adjusted to 324 from 48 overs. Anier Ali and Shehzad were the openers,

:27:55.:28:01.

faced with starting the task. They have to get off to a good start,

:28:02.:28:05.

maybe a partnership of 60 or 70, something to build on. That is

:28:06.:28:08.

something they need to do, take simple steps against the new balls

:28:09.:28:11.

and put pressure on India. Down the leg side. A bit of

:28:12.:28:35.

exercise, and that is a wide. That is a nice way to begin your innings.

:28:36.:28:42.

That is for runs. Beautifully managed and well timed. A little bit

:28:43.:28:47.

of width provided. There has been rain around, so it needs a firmer

:28:48.:28:54.

footing, and that was a lovely piece of timing. He used to the pace of

:28:55.:28:59.

the ball. It was short and wide, standing up on top of the bounce.

:29:00.:29:09.

That is good there. Do not bowl on his pads. The short fence. A good

:29:10.:29:22.

bit of work on the boundary. That is a good effort.

:29:23.:29:27.

That is more like it. A proper bouncer this time, and that will

:29:28.:29:35.

actually hit the fence. That is a good shot from Azhar Ali. 21-0.

:29:36.:29:59.

I don't know whether Pakistan are thinking about Duckworth-Lewis

:30:00.:30:05.

ending here, because if there are no wickets down after 20 overs and they

:30:06.:30:11.

get 103, I think they beat India. Well, they are off. The opening pair

:30:12.:30:19.

are still intact after 4.5 overs. It's been that kind of a day. Very

:30:20.:30:22.

frustrating. Let's hope it is a passing shower.

:30:23.:30:25.

Back to the point you were making about the Duckworth-Lewis, I would

:30:26.:30:31.

like to think they could have got through that, there has been brain

:30:32.:30:34.

around all day, as a batsmen you don't want to be unsure about what

:30:35.:30:41.

the total is after that 20 overs -- rain. The one to keep yourself on

:30:42.:30:45.

track whenever you can. Pakistan would be happy with the start that

:30:46.:30:48.

they've got, 4.5 overs and no dramas. Bowling figures for it

:30:49.:31:02.

India, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 2.5 overs. Yadav with two overs. This is

:31:03.:31:07.

England. When we left, it was drizzly, grey, and look at it now!

:31:08.:31:15.

Blue skies, white clouds, and at the moment, the ground is bathed in

:31:16.:31:19.

sunshine as we lose a bit of time because of all of these

:31:20.:31:26.

interruptions... Some revisions now, these are the latest.

:31:27.:31:32.

The target for Pakistan is 208 in 41 overs.

:31:33.:31:38.

The power plays as well changed because of this. The first ball

:31:39.:31:44.

after the interruption, as we resume play. And it turns out to be the

:31:45.:31:59.

last. Hit hard, four runs for that shot. Six overs gone, 27-0. Two men

:32:00.:32:10.

at point. A good shot! On the up, four runs for it. A nice swing of

:32:11.:32:19.

the bat, a class act. He is a good player as Sanjay was saying earlier,

:32:20.:32:24.

he made runs in that test with good ball conditions, using the pace of

:32:25.:32:35.

it and the spin. He wants a single, dangerous! Given up! What happened

:32:36.:32:44.

there? He just stopped. Just watching the screen, saw the batsmen

:32:45.:32:49.

just stopped in his tracks... Ample time, actually, to get the ball to

:32:50.:32:52.

Bumrah as well. The batsmen had given up. Close... And given!

:32:53.:33:08.

CHEERING They had to decide quickly, they

:33:09.:33:13.

have decided against a review. The batsman is walking back, as Ahmed

:33:14.:33:22.

Shehzad is given out, lbw. It looked a little higher, everyone was up for

:33:23.:33:27.

India. I was just wondering if he was a little outside the line or a

:33:28.:33:31.

little higher. The batsman said Yap, you are going to be on your way...

:33:32.:33:38.

-- yes, you are going to be on your way. Another mis-field. I need to

:33:39.:33:49.

see the fielding scorecard for India so far... Virat Kohli would not be

:33:50.:33:56.

happy with this... Straight to the fielder! He does not miss much,

:33:57.:34:09.

Jadeja. Probably some merit in looking to plead that shot, he could

:34:10.:34:15.

not get it away from Jadeja. He has a safer para pounds. -- tearoff

:34:16.:34:33.

hands. Babar Azam goes for aid. -- goes for eight. Another drop. Yes,

:34:34.:34:38.

he makes some good ground, Bhuvneshwar Kumar. And again,

:34:39.:34:44.

another error in the field. It will go down as one. Was he looking to

:34:45.:34:50.

hit over mid-off? He was, the ball cramped him for room. He pulled it

:34:51.:34:56.

at long-on fielder. Once again, the Pakistani fielders have dropped a

:34:57.:34:59.

view in the first innings, now it is time for India. Jadeja to continue,

:35:00.:35:04.

to take you further, it is brown -- it is Ramesh and Ricky Ponting.

:35:05.:35:28.

Good from Jadeja. Ali brings up a 50. Well played, off 64 deliveries,

:35:29.:35:41.

66 boundaries. Top edge this time... After Pandya, a bit of pressure.

:35:42.:35:52.

Good bowling from Jadeja. Sweet from Ali, top edge and come to be taken,

:35:53.:35:59.

that is a big wicket for India. That was top edge, and Pandya took his

:36:00.:36:05.

time. Always looking comfortable. Netting that one. A good catch.

:36:06.:36:13.

Reconstructing the innings, Azhar Ali, but then he walks.

:36:14.:36:26.

A smash, beautifully timed. The drive gets them going. Haven't

:36:27.:36:30.

really seen him get too wide at all in the course of this innings so

:36:31.:36:34.

far. A good bounce of the ball before, not a great follow-up.

:36:35.:36:41.

Slapped hard, backward point from Shoaib Malik. A good start from him.

:36:42.:36:48.

Worked down fine leg, this could also be four. Great piece of work

:36:49.:36:54.

down there. It makes its way into the right, four more. Something as

:36:55.:37:05.

extravagant as that... How good is that six? Down the track, hitting it

:37:06.:37:12.

ever so sweetly. Shoaib Malik there. Using the backswing, it was a

:37:13.:37:18.

beautiful swing of the bat. Going through with the stroke. Hitting it

:37:19.:37:23.

long. Sweet and handsome. What a long way back. A good hit. The

:37:24.:37:34.

chance of a direct hit... He has gone! Shoaib Malik, taken out by the

:37:35.:37:38.

brilliance of Jadeja. Picked up cleanly. Did not take his time to

:37:39.:37:45.

balance it. Off-balance, hit the bottom of the off-stump. Quality

:37:46.:37:50.

fielding by a quality field is. Pick it up and throw in one motion...

:37:51.:38:00.

Bang! A great piece of work. Shoaib Malik on his way. A well made 15,

:38:01.:38:05.

Pakistan in deep trouble now. An interesting field, this. On-side

:38:06.:38:14.

again, hitting across the line. This should be out. Jadeja strikes again.

:38:15.:38:22.

The batsmen struggle against Jadeja. He is an excellent cricketer. A big

:38:23.:38:31.

slog sweep into the air and safely taken, in the deep. Pakistan in all

:38:32.:38:41.

sorts of trouble now. Feeling the pressure with the dotballs and then

:38:42.:38:44.

the wicket comes. Mohammad Hafeez has gone for 33. Into the air...

:38:45.:38:56.

Gone, straight to him. The first ball, can you believe it? Straight

:38:57.:39:01.

to the fielder at cover. That is very close to be single. -- to the

:39:02.:39:11.

single. Trying to hit up on the first ball. The ball was in the air,

:39:12.:39:20.

Yadav taking a smart catch. Gone for a duck. Another slog sweep... A good

:39:21.:39:32.

shot! All of the way to six. One way to upset his rhythm. Two wickets,

:39:33.:39:38.

Jadeja, when the batsmen have attempted the sweep shot, he gets

:39:39.:39:43.

the bounce from this pitch. For once, the sweep shot connects for a

:39:44.:39:48.

batsmen. Into the air, that might be four. Right into the gap, Virat

:39:49.:39:53.

Kohli has the field up for this leg-spinner. A good finish for the

:39:54.:40:00.

over. Two boundaries, six and four. A good shot down the ground. UBP

:40:01.:40:08.

fielder for four. -- beating the fielder for four. Subtle changes

:40:09.:40:14.

making the difference. That is the 54 Pakistan. A genuinely good

:40:15.:40:19.

fielder, Yadav. By his standards, a sloppy effort. Somebody cried out

:40:20.:40:24.

from the Indian camp, they were not happy with that effort from Umesh

:40:25.:40:32.

Yadav. Gone, got him! A run off the bat. The skipper has gone. Just a

:40:33.:40:44.

good length of delivery. A bit of bounce, running it down to third

:40:45.:40:50.

man. Good bounce, good catch from MS Dhoni. The wickets come tumbling

:40:51.:40:54.

four Pakistan! And after that, it bit of a glare. Gone for 15.

:40:55.:41:11.

Into the air... He has dropped it, can you believe it? We've just been

:41:12.:41:18.

giving India a pump up about how well their athleticism is in the

:41:19.:41:21.

field, and how good they are. It went high into the air and it should

:41:22.:41:25.

have been taken. It seemed he caught it and then dropped it. Right under

:41:26.:41:34.

the ball. It's never easy... But it went through. I think he might have

:41:35.:41:39.

been a little too casual and it, when big shots are required.

:41:40.:41:41.

Common-sense cricket was needed, and I think they lost the plot. They are

:41:42.:41:48.

losing the plot here... The end is near. Yadav, picking up a catch has

:41:49.:41:55.

been a bit of a miss in the field. But this time, no mistakes. Hitting

:41:56.:41:59.

high on the bat. An easy catch for the cover fielder. Making catches up

:42:00.:42:14.

covers. Caught by Kedar Jadhav, bowled by Yadav. Pushing Pakistan

:42:15.:42:22.

against the wall, it has ended. Folding in a flash now, Umesh Yadav

:42:23.:42:30.

accepting another. Beaten by pace and beaten by the bounce. The lower

:42:31.:42:34.

order batsmen chipset into the mid-wicket fielder.

:42:35.:42:42.

It's all over, Wahab Riaz is not fit to take to the field, says India.

:42:43.:42:50.

Once again, a stylish win. STUDIO: Pakistan's branch is never really

:42:51.:42:53.

got going in earnest, lacking the firepower of their opponents with

:42:54.:42:57.

the bat, they struggled to keep up with the required rate.

:42:58.:43:00.

The opener provided a solid anchor at the top of the order with a

:43:01.:43:05.

half-century, then the be the agricultural Shoaib Malik cameo was

:43:06.:43:09.

the only flicker of hope for Pakistan.

:43:10.:43:11.

Only a matter of time before the inevitable collapse, and Wahab

:43:12.:43:16.

Riaz's injured ankle that caused him to leave the field in the first

:43:17.:43:22.

innings meant he was unable to play. So they were all out. India's

:43:23.:43:27.

fielding was poor compared to their normally high standards, but on this

:43:28.:43:31.

occasion they were not made to pay for it.

:43:32.:43:34.

Two apiece for Hardik Pandya and Robbie Jadeja, who also

:43:35.:43:38.

spectacularly ran out Shoaib Malik. A comprehensive victory for India by

:43:39.:43:45.

124 under the Duckworth-Lewis method.

:43:46.:43:49.

They won the match with ferocious batting for Yuvraj Singh and that

:43:50.:43:52.

Kohli in their batting. They kept the pressure on Pakistan from the

:43:53.:43:58.

start. We batted well, the opener was a good start. It gave me the

:43:59.:44:05.

opportunity to go in and attack. How easy or challenging is it you just

:44:06.:44:09.

walk in and left the tempo of an innings? It isn't easy at all. You

:44:10.:44:16.

had to back yourself, and let the opposition know that you are here to

:44:17.:44:20.

score runs and to attack. It depends how you are feeling that day. I was

:44:21.:44:25.

feeling good, I was lucky. The players were hitting the ball well,

:44:26.:44:29.

and we finished well at the end. Marks out of ten, how well did this

:44:30.:44:37.

go for you today? Umm... With bat handball, nine out of ten. But in

:44:38.:44:42.

the field, we are still six today. If we get up to eight or nine, we

:44:43.:44:47.

would be a very strong side in the tournament. This was a very complete

:44:48.:44:51.

performance for us, especially starting the tournament. We took

:44:52.:44:54.

what we learned from the practice games into this game and skill wise,

:44:55.:44:59.

we are really clinical. In the field, that is something we can

:45:00.:45:03.

improve on. This is a tournament of all champion teams, we cannot let

:45:04.:45:09.

off in any department at any stage. As a complete performance on bat

:45:10.:45:15.

handball, I would say nine out of ten. Sarfraz, conversely, in the

:45:16.:45:18.

field for Pakistan, how do you feel that you went? I think that we lost

:45:19.:45:29.

in the last few and gave it to the Indian batsmen? Revisiting the

:45:30.:45:32.

decision at the toss, and choosing to bowl, any regrets? No,

:45:33.:45:37.

altogether, I think we had it under control. We made 124 runs, but the

:45:38.:45:45.

prize goes to India. India claim two points for a victory and top the

:45:46.:45:49.

group ahead of South Africa on run rate, they look to be strong favour

:45:50.:45:53.

is progressing to the semifinals from group B.

:45:54.:45:58.

South Africa take on Pakistan here in Birmingham on Wednesday before

:45:59.:46:03.

India face Sri Lanka at the Oval. But for now, it's goodbye from

Edgbaston.
