India romp to 89 run win over Pakistan

India on Sunday beat Pakistan by 89 runs (DLS method) in their rain-interrupted 2019 ICC World Cup clash at Manchester’s Old Trafford Stadium.

Put to bat first after Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed won the toss, India, powered by Rohit Sharma’s 140 (113), set a target of 337.

Pakistan, in reply, reached 166/6 in 35 overs before rain caused a temporary halt to the play. On resumption, their revised target was 302 and they had to chase it down in 40 overs. Only managing to reach 212/6, they fell to their third defeat of the tournament.
