India extended their unblemished World Cup record against Pakistan after Rohit Sharma’s century and tidy bowling secured their 89-run victory via the Duckworth-Lewis method in the tournament’s most anticipated group match on Sunday.
India set Pakistan a 337-run target to chase down. However, after a spell of rain interrupted the Pakistan innings in the 35th over, the target was adjusted to 302 runs, while the length of the innings was revised down to 40 overs.
Once the covers came off, Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan kept up a steady rhythm but it just wasn’t enough to score the 136 needed off 30 balls to win.
Rohit Sharma was named Man of the Match for his second century this World Cup.
