That’s it! Way too easy. India have beaten Pakistan by 89 runs via DLS method to extend their unbeaten run over Pakistan in World Cups.

23:53 hrs IST

The Bumrah no ball returns or does it?

Edged and it flies for a boundary. Umpire Bruce Oxenford signals a no ball, a free hit for Pakistan. Oh hang on, replays show Bumrah’s front foot landed well inside the line. Thank goodness it’s not a close encounter.

23:46 hrs IST

A no show from Pakistan

Hard to describe what is happening in the middle right now. Yes, the equation is next to impossible but that doesn’t mean there won’t be an honest attempt from the Pakistan batters. They have scored just 16 runs in 2 overs when they needed 136 runs from 5.

23:30 hrs IST

40-over match

The official broadcasters say match to resume at 10.40 pm. It has been reduced to 40-over game and guess how much Pakistan have to get? 302. yes you read that right. They need 136 runs off 5 overs via DLS method.

23:18 hrs IST

Covers coming off

The situation has improved a bit and the side covers are being removed by the ground staff. At this point, we are losing one over per four minutes and it will be interesting to see how many overs will be left when the match resumes.

22:52 hrs IST

Pakistan way behind DLS par score

The DLS par score after the end of 35 overs is 252. So, Pakistan are massively behind, 86 runs to be precise. If there is no play then India will win this match by 86 runs.

22:46 hrs IST

Rain arrives

Just as we predicted, rain has arrived and the ground staff have sprang into action. The players run off. Doesn’t look like it will take long but for the moment we have to wait. Pakistan are 166 for 6

22:41 hrs IST

Shankar removes Sarfaraz

BOWLED! Shankar on a roll. Pakistan seem to have no goal. They are neither able to attack, nor able to survive. Outside off, on a length, Sarfaraz looks to work it to the leg side but the ball cuts in off the seam, takes the inside edge and hits the leg stump. Sorry state of affairs for Pakistan and Sarfaraz.

22:36 hrs IST

Rain threat looms large

It has gone dark here. The umbrellas are out and it’s only a matter of time before the rain causes another stoppage in this game. Just to be clear, Pakistan at this stage are 65 runs behind the DLS par score. So you now know which side will be happier with the rain

22:29 hrs IST

28 runs from 6 overs

Pretty much going through the motions now. Imad Wasim and Sarfaraz Ahmed don’t have much choice but to be a little cautious before they can even think of going for the target.

22:07 hrs IST


First Mohammad Hafeez and then Shoaib Malik off the very next ball. Pandya is on cloud nine. The first delivery was lose delivery down the leg side which Hafeez flicked it straight to the deep square-leg fielder and then Malik chops it on to his stumps to be dismissed for a golden duck. Pakistan have lost 4 wickets for 14 runs.

21:55 hrs IST

Double strike from Kuldeep

If Babar Azam was big, this is even bigger, it’s Fakhar Zaman. Excellent from Kuldeep. He beat Zaman in the previous delivery and then slips it further up, Zaman tries to play the sweep shot but the turn does him in. He gets a top edge that lands safely in the hands of Chahal. India are right back on top.

21:38 hrs IST


BOWLED! A beauty from Kuldeep Yadav to bring an end to an excellent partnership. It was just too a delivery. Pitches just outside off, grips on the surface, turns in to sneak through the gap between Babar’s bat and pad. India roar back!

21:37 hrs IST

Fifty for Zaman

SIX! Fakhar Zaman gets to his fifty. The Indian boundary riders were interested for brief period but it just sailed over their head for the first six of the Pakistan innings.

21:18 hrs IST

Zaman breaks the shackles

A loose delivery from Pandya and it was smashed to the fence by Fakhar Zaman. Pakistan needed this boundary, they were stranded in the middle for a long time. Hopefully, this will give both Zaman and Pakistan some momentum.

21:05 hrs IST

Bhuvi ruled out from this match

Official world from the Indian team management is that Bhuvneshwar has stiffness in his left hamstring and will not take any further part in this match. A big blow India but thankfully they have Vijay Shankar in this match to fill in.

21:03 hrs IST

Great start from Kuldeep

Kuldeep Yadav begins well, gives only 2 runs away from his first over and more importantly there was some turn there.

20:55 hrs IST

Bhuvi may not comeback soon

No official word yet but from the look of things, it seems like India won’t take a risk with Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Perhaps that’s why both Shankar and Pandya are bowling in tandem.

20:50 hrs IST

Pakistan 38/1 at Powerplay

Brilliant from Shankar, brilliant from India. They have tied Pakistan down. The Men in Green are 38 for 1 after the Powerplay, certainly not the start they were looking for chasing 337.

20:42 hrs IST

A boundary ruins the over

Five dot balls and then a boundary from the last ball of the over. It should’ve been a maiden but Bumrah just strays down the leg side for a boundary.

20:31 hrs IST

Cracker from Babar

FOUR! Crunched, right from the middle of the bat. Bumrah errs in both length and line and Babar Azam shows why he is rated highly in Pakistan, rocks back and smashes it through the off side to collect his first boundary.

20:28 hrs IST

Super sub Shankar

OUT! That is nothing short of a fairytale for Vijay Shankar. Virat Kohli throws him the ball to complete the over after Bhuvneshwar Kumar walked off with a niggle and how does Shankar respond? Simple, he runs in, pitches it around leg and middle, brings it back to ever so slightly to trap Imam in dead in front. A first ball wicket.

20:19 hrs IST

Superb from Bumrah solid Zaman

Very good over from Bumrah. He tested Zaman outside the off stump, beat him with the angle but credit to the Pakistan opener for not get sucked into it.

20:15 hrs IST

Imam flicks it for four

Good shot from Imam ul Haq. He uses his wrists to flick the ball between the mid-wicket and mid-on fielder for a four. Bhuvneshwar Kumar just struggling with his line a little.

20:08 hrs IST

Lose from Bumrah

A gift from Bumrah and gleefully accepted by Fakhar Zaman. A juicy full toss outside off and Zaman drives it past the inner ring to collect an easy boundary.

20:05 hrs IST

Bhuvi starts well

Encouraging start for India, only 2 from Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s first over. But more importantly, there was some movement off the pitch, which was not there when the Pakistan seamers were bowling.

20:01 hrs IST

Finally ready for action

Right, after numerous stoppages we are finally ready for some action. The players had to wait for a good 10 minutes because rain had made a brief comeback but it all looks fine now. Bhuvneshwar Kumar to start the proceedings for India, Imam to take the first ball for Pakistan.

19:40 hrs IST

Oh no rain, oh yes sunshine

It started to rain just as the Indian innings ended. The groundstaff decided to bring the hover cover on but before they could put the rest of the covers in place the rain vanished and guess what? bright sunshine followed. This is the English weather we all are accustomed to, not the rain washouts.

19:28 hrs IST

India finish with 336/5

A good last over Mohammad Amir, only 9 runs coming from it. Pakistan did pull things back a little towards the end but India will be mighty pleased with 336 on the board. One would have to say, the rain delay did hurt the momentum of the Indian batsmen.

19:22 hrs IST

12 from the 49th over

Only one boundary but despite that India collect 12 runs from the Wahab Riaz’s over.

19:15 hrs IST

Kohli goes

OUT! Virat Kohli decides to walk. A well directed bouncer from Amir, Kohli plays the pull shot but gets a faint nick to the keeper. Third wicket for Amir. Pakistan are pulling things back. Hang on! Replays show nothing on ultra edge and the umpire had given him not out so it would have stayed even if the Pakistan had gone for the review. Big moment in the game?

19:11 hrs IST

Depth touch from Kohli

FOUR! Brilliant from Kohli, class written all over it. Wahab goes for the cutter with third man inside the ring, Kohli waits for it to arrive and just taps it between the keeper and short third man for a boundary.

19:04 hrs IST

Play to resume at 7:10 pm IST

Right, we have a start time. The umpires are satisfied and play will resume at 7:10 pm IST. Good news for India is that they will have a chance to complete their innings and it will be a 50-over game.

18:59 hrs IST

Inspection going on

The umpires are out there inspecting the conditions. Looks like they are satisfied and we should get a game anytime now.

18:48 hrs IST

Covers coming off

Good news, tt has gone brighter in Manchester, the covers are coming off. The soppers are working on the grounds as the drizzle has died down. It should not be long before we get live action.

18:36 hrs IST

DLS scenario

If India don’t bat again, Pakistan will have to chase 327 in 46 overs. And just in case, the game gets reduced to a 20-over one then Pakistan will have to chase 184 for victory but that looks unlikely at the moment.

18:30 hrs IST

Passing shower?

The commentators say this might be a passing shower. But at the moment it’s still heavy. Before you all start worrying, we have still have more than an hour before we start losing overs.

18:17 hrs IST

Rain intervenes

The rain threatened and it has finally arrived. The umpires have taken the players off the field, it was always on the cards. Kohli is hurtling along and is being given company by Vijay Shankar at the other end. This could be a lengthy break, the umbrellas are out!

18:08 hrs IST

Dhoni dismissed

Length ball angled across Dhoni who wanted to slam it out of sight, does not get near it, ball takes the outside edge and is caught by Sarfaraz. Pakistan need to keep picking up wickets, India will aim for a score in excess of 350

18:01 hrs IST

Hardik departs

Well, he was humming along, but now has holed out at long on. Shuffled across, tried to flick it away with a helicopter twirl over long on, does not enough wood and is caught by Babar Azam at long on. He departs, but India need to keep chugging along

17:59 hrs IST

50 for Kohli

The King is on the move, notches up his 51st ODI 50. He will now absolutely take off. Watch out Pakistan, this can hurt them here.

17:51 hrs IST

Kohli, Hardik take control

Now the time has come for India to go for the final flourish. India need to press on the accelerator and bat Pakistan out of the game. Pakistan have the bowlers to exert control in the final overs and hence, the task will be cut out for Hardik, Kohli.

17:41 hrs IST

Rohit out

After smacking a four, Rohit tries to scoop one over short fine leg, does not the timing right and is caught by the man. He is livid with himself, and drags himself off the field. A sublime innings comes to an end, India have the perfect platform for a gallant finish.

17:19 hrs IST

India reach 200

India have crossed 200 and now both Kohli and Rohit need to step on the accelerator and look for a grand finish. They have set the perfect platform, they have power at their disposal and they need to accelerate right about now

17:04 hrs IST

24th ODI 100

India vs Pakistan, pressure, what pressure. Absolute breathtaking, he has been in control from ball one, attacked Hasan Ali, creamed the spinners, and has galloped away to a hundred. This has been one stunning innings, he needs to carry on and make it big!

16:57 hrs IST

Amir has been on song all day

It is that battle, Amir vs Kohli and the fast bowler has already beaten the skipper once and has few words to offer as well. Kohli wanders down the track, taps the pitch, smirks and goes back to take guard once again. What an absolute delight, this contest.

16:51 hrs IST

My God, Rohit

Short and wide from Hasan Ali, Rohit stays tall and slashes it away over point, all the way, the ball has cleared the boundary, that was some stroke, he is playing some innings today

16:37 hrs IST

KL Rahul departs

Wahab Riaz goes around the wicket, bowls a full ball outside the off stump and Rahul drives very loosely and is caught by Babar Azam at short cover. Extremely soft dismissal, Pakistan get their first wicket, after a humongous wait

16:31 hrs IST

KL Rahul’s 50: Stat attack

· 3rd fifty in ODIs

· 1st vs Pakistan

· 1st fifty in WC in 3 innings.

· This is also the first time two openers have scored fifties against Pakistan in a World Cup inning

16:27 hrs IST

50 for KL Rahul

Asked to open, the Karnataka-lad has done a superb job. He was watchful up front and then slowly opened up and this 50 will do him a world of good. He will now look to attack the spinners, India are firmly in control here, Pakistan need a wicket!

16:19 hrs IST

Pakistan building dots

After a frenetic start, Pakistan have managed to pull things back. The spinners are piling on the dots and KL Rahul is a man under pressure. Good passage of play for Pakistan, Rahul cannot go into his shell, he has to rotate strike, if not getting the boundaries.

16:12 hrs IST

India in firm control

16:06 hrs IST

India racing along

The partnership of 91 runs is now the highest opening wicket partnership for India against Pakistan:

15:53 hrs IST

50 for Rohit

Shabby start from Shadab, he has been taken to the cleaners by Rohit and Rahul. Rohit has brought up his 50 off 34 balls, India have found momentum and Pakistan are under some real pressure here. This has been some display of batting

15:48 hrs IST

Rohit, absolute poetry

He is stamping his class at Old Trafford, India have hummed past 50. There is some confusion in running, but then India will be thrilled with this start. And now Rahul is playing it smartly against Imad with his array of strokes

15:43 hrs IST

Not very good by Pakistan

The throw has been chucked to the wrong end. Rahul has clipped a ball towards mid-wicket and rushes acorss for a couple of runs. Rahul was no interested. Fakhar picks up the ball but throws towards the bowler’s end. Both batsmen are safe.

15:36 hrs IST

Poor bowling

Pakistan bowlers, barring Amir, has been bowling too short and they have been taken to the cleaners by Rohit Sharma. After a watchful start, India have now got off to a perfect start. Pakistan under pressure, Imad Wasim is into the attack

15:28 hrs IST

Rohit, you beaut

Short and wide, Rohit stands tall, creams it past a diving cover. Hasan Ali then bangs one short, Rohit is still on the front foot and with a languid swing of the bat pulls it over deep mid-wicket. Magic, absolute magic from Rohit Sharma

15:25 hrs IST

2 warnings for Amir

Amir has been warned twice in three overs for running on the pitch. One more warning and he is off. This is bizarre, he has to be careful now or else Pakistan will be dealt a huge blow

15:14 hrs IST

Amir on point

He is the big threat and he has been on point so far. Both Rohit and Rahul are watchful which should be the way they approach this innings. The sun has started peeking through, well, this was the forecast for the day!

15:05 hrs IST

Steady first over

No significant swing on offer, Rahul was very watchful and sees off a maiden. It was a concerted effort to pitch the ball up to extract any movement!

Hasan Ali with the ball at the other end.

15:01 hrs IST

Amir with the new ball

He is a huge huge factor. He will shape the ball, the Pakistan fielders have to hold on to their catches, this is a good surface. Let’s go.

15:00 hrs IST

KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma

What an occasion this is for KL Rahul to stride out and open the innings for his side. Rohit Sharma is a man in form, he has to dig deep and drop anchor

14:53 hrs IST

The Amir-threat

As India get ready to face off their arch-rivals Pakistan in World Cup 2019 on Sunday in Manchester, they will have to be wary of seamer Mohammad Amir. The left-armer, who picked up his maiden five-wicket haul in the ODIs in the previous encounter against Australia, is currently the leading wicket-taker in the tournament. The fast bowler has picked up 10 wickets in 3 matches at an average of 12.30.

Kohli speaks

We would have bowled first to be honest. Wicket looks really nice though and we have two wrist spinners in our team. We will be in good stead if we bat well.(On 800,000 applications for tickets and over a billion viewership for this match) That’s the kind of attention this game brings but that’s all is outside the ropes. Once you enter the field it is all about playing the game which you have played from the childhood. The team that holds their nerve in the big match usually wins. We have been playing good cricket and we don’t want to tinker much with the team combination. We have one forced change, Shikhar misses out and Vijay Shankar comes in his place. He is a solid batsman

14:40 hrs IST


Sarfaraz has won the toss and he will bowl first. Kohli said he would have done the same.

Sarfaraz Ahmed: We will bowl first. It has been raining so conditions are good for bowling. We have quality spinners and we have backed them today. We are not thinking about 6-0.

14:23 hrs IST

Pitch report

“Dry underneath, but on top there’s a hint of moisture. Get through the new ball and both teams can capitalise,” says Michael Clarke. Both sides will look to bowl, with an eye on the weather possibly.

13:56 hrs IST

Pitch, surface, yes see it

13:37 hrs IST

Gloomy but dry

Pakistan PM Imran Khan has something to say

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday offered his best wishes and advices to Pakistan cricket team for the highly-anticipated India clash, which is set to take place on Sunday. In a series of tweets, the 1992 World Cup-winning captain described Sarfraz Ahmed as a “bold captain” and asked him to be his “daring best” against the arch-rivals.

He had plenty more to say. Read here.

Dhoni doing Dhoni things

The bond between M S Dhoni and Karachi-born Mohammad Bashir aka ‘Chacha Chicago’ blossomed during the 2011 World Cup semifinal between India and Pakistan and it has only grown stronger since then.

Such is the bond that Bashir has flown in to Manchester from Chicago (approximately 6000 kms) for Sunday’s high-octane Indo-Pak contest without a match ticket. He knows that Dhoni will ensure that he is it at the Old Trafford when the first ball is bowled.

12:09 hrs IST

Scenes back in India

12:07 hrs IST

Timely start expected?

A patch of blue in the sky. Forecast has improved according to BBC weather. Light showers expected post 3 pm. We could well get a timely start. So now, sit tight, cross your fingers and relax.

12:04 hrs IST

Kohli offers perspective

“The game starts at a certain time and finishes at a certain time. So this is not going to last a lifetime, if you do well or even if you don’t,” Kohli was at his pragmatic best during the pre-match interaction.

11:51 hrs IST

India have all bases covered

However, on current form, Bumrah, Kumar and Pandya (maybe Shami too if conditions on the day merit it) are a potent force, one that could conceivably do match threatening damage bowling first. These 10.30 starts, especially if it is overcast, can encourage captains to go for the early advantage, and one can imagine either side relishing at least some movement off the seam.

David Gower explains.

11:00 hrs IST

Has India-Pakistan been reduced to a no-contest?

It was a humdrum match in Sydney, but the ball had been set rolling. Since then the Indo-Pak contest, fuelled by expanding cable TV penetration and the peculiar blow-hot-blow-cold political relations between the two nations, has become the blue riband match of the tournament.

Why this fixture has not been able to live up to the billing!

10:59 hrs IST

Sunil Gavaskar slams ECB

“Well, ECB (is responsible). ECB is the one that runs the game here. The Lancashire County Cricket Club comes under its jurisdiction. So it’s the ECB’s responsibility.”

Gavaskar was indeed furious.

Sachin’s advice for Kohli, Shastri

India’s cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar on Friday said that the men in blue should not be “overconfident” going into the crucial clash against Pakistan on Sunday in Manchester. India have a 6-0 record at the World cup against their neighbouring rivals, but suffered a massive 180-run defeat by the opposition in Champions trophy final in 2017.

He had few more things to say.

India-Pakistan all time XI

Three members from the current Indian World Cup squad, made it to the Vaughan’s all-time India-Pakistan XI. However, there was no one from Pakistan’s current team in the World Cup.

Game and not a war

With passions running high among both fanbases and political relations between the countries extremely tense, Wasim said the match should be enjoyed rather than used to inflame the situation.

Wasim Akram had an appeal to make to the masses on either side of the border.

10:39 hrs IST

Hype and all that

The South Asian neighbours, who share a history of brotherhood and bloodshed, will meet Sunday in a long-awaited group stage clash in Manchester.

Tapping into the frenzy, the “world’s largest bat” was unveiled in the southern city Chennai, and a popular Indian rapper who goes by the name Divine was set to perform to his viral ‘SockThem’ World Cup-themed song in Manchester Saturday.

The clip has been viewed 32 million times on YouTube so far.

Virat Kohli on the Amir impact

“I am not going to say anything for TRPs,” Kohli said in the pre-match presser in Manchester.

He was at his vocal best, read everything which the Indian captain had to say here.

10:36 hrs IST

What does the weather say?

There is so much at stake, and even if the teams take it as a contest, it is not quite a game played with bat and ball. And then there is the weather, the dour, fickle English weather and more eyes will be looking upwards at the skies on the day.

The rain stopped in the late afternoon in Manchester, but made sporadic appearances right through the day. The outfield, which for some reason was not covered, are soggy and there are patches of puddles on the field which can be a huge concern. The drainage system at Old Trafford will be put to the sword if the rain abates.

Find out more about the forecast here.

10:34 hrs IST

India take on Pakistan, both teams take on the weather

Virat Kohli did not want to be drawn into the hype surrounding the match, he wanted the match to be played just like any other match. Well, Kohli is boisterous and even wants his side to take this game as a routine affair between bat and ball. But then that’s just Virat Kohli, captain of a side which seems to have all the bases covered. For Pakistan though, the mood was reflected when Mickey Arthur revealed he challenged his side to rise, seize the day and be heroes. Two contrasting camps, with a volatile history, united in their worry about the inclement weather which could well make everything else seem not so significant. This is India vs Pakistan and after all the facade, it goes well beyond any normal game.
