India vs Pakistan Live Score: 'I'm very tired' - Kohli
"I was going to ask you to keep the interview short, I'm very tired. I'm always prepared to help the team in different ways. Today, KL got a great start and my job was just to rotate strike. I take a lot of pride on trying to push for easy runs, pushing for a double is as easy as they come. (On the reverse ramp boundary) Because I crossed the 100, there was a bit of respect for that shot. I don't play shots like that and I looked very bad playing it. Me and KL are both conventional cricketers, we don't try fancy stuff but we can get a lot of purchase through good cricket shots. Great partnership and good signs for Indian cricket. Very happy for him to come back to ODI cricket in that manner. (On playing again tomorrow) I was pushing for those runs and happy for it, but I was thinking I need to play at 3 pm tomorrow. Luckily, we are Test players so I know how to come back and play the next day. It was really humid out there, I'm 35 in November so I need to be taking care of that recovery as well (chuckles). A big shout out to the groundsmen from my side, I think they did a fabulous job." - Virat Kohli - Player of the MatchSep 11, 2023 11:19 PM IST
India vs Pakistan Live Score: Rohit on IND's performance
"We just wanted to get out on the park, to get some game time. Lot of guys haven't had that. That could only happen thanks to a great effort from the groundsmen. I know how tough it is to cover and remove covers from the whole ground. On behalf of the entire team, we would like to thank them. (On batting) Fantastic performance, right from yesterday. When we started, we knew the wicket was good and we had to adjust with the rain, the two experienced guys we knew they'd take time to get their eye in and then we can get going. Looked good, he swung it both ways and he's worked really hard for the last 8-10 months. Bumrah is only 27, for him to miss games isn't ideal but the way he bowled showed what he is all about. Looking at how we batted, there were lots of positives with the openers and then Virat and KL. Virat's innings was brilliantly paced." - India captain Rohit SharmaSep 11, 2023 11:15 PM IST

But Kohli saw out the day while Rahul looked good with a couple of boundaries. Today, they have gone on to break the record for the highest partnership by an Indian pair against Pakistan in ODIs. They have surpassed the 231 between Sachin Tendulkar and Navjot Singh Sidhu in Sharjah in 1996.Sep 11, 2023 06:57 PM IST
India vs Pakistan Live Score: Shubman Gill talks
“Very special for us. He (Rahul) was playing his first match after coming back from injury and to be able to score a century in these conditions was pretty magnificent. Obviously Virat Bhai also completed his century and got to 13000 runs which shows his great inspiration to all of us. The ball was doing a little bit in the initial period and they also bowled well with the new ball, but it was important for us to take them on and put the bad balls away to put the pressure back on them. I think he (Shaheen) was trying to attack the wickets and I wanted to show intent, worked for me yesterday. There's a bit of seam movement and once the ball gets older we have to mix it up with slower ones, I found it difficult when they were mixing up their length and pace.”Sep 11, 2023 06:50 PM IST
India vs Pakistan Live Score: More records bow to Kohli
India vs Pakistan Live Score: Kohli has now matched Hashim Amla to score the most consecutive centuries at the same venue in ODIs.

He was already the fastest to 8000, 9000, 10,000, 11,000 and 12,000 ODI runs as well. He is also now just two centuries away from equalling Sachin Tendulkar's record of 49 ODI centuries.

India vs Pakistan Live Score: Naseem Shah has left the field!
India vs Pakistan Live Score: This is turning out to be quite a nightmare for Pakistan. First they were forced to keep Rauf out for the day and now Naseem is walking off holding his wrist. After bowling just two balls in the 49th over.Sep 11, 2023 06:30 PM IST
India vs Pakistan Live Score: India 330/2 in 48 overs
Shaheen Afridi has finished with figures of 1/79. It has been that kind of a match for the Pakistan fast bowlers. Rahul is on 108 off 103 balls, Kohli on 100 off 84.Sep 11, 2023 06:28 PM IST
India vs Pakistan Live Score: BACK TO BACK FOURS!
India vs Pakistan Live Score: The carnage continues. The fourth ball is swatted away past wide long off. That brings up the 200-run partnership. Then Rahul moves to off and paddles a yorker length delivery past the short fine leg fielder.Sep 11, 2023 06:26 PM IST
India vs Pakistan Live Score: CENTURY NO.47 FOR KOHLI!
Single off the third ball of the 48th, Kohli pumps his first in the air and jumps. He has got there in just 84 balls and moreover, he had become the fastest to 13,000 ODI runs as well just a ball earlier. A legend makes his stamp and this has been some partnership between him and Rahul.Sep 11, 2023 06:23 PM IST
India vs Pakistan Live Score: CENTURY FOR RAHUL!
A century on his comeback from a long injury break. Rahul has shown why India brought him back in the team as soon as he was available. He is crucial to India's cause in ODIs.Sep 11, 2023 06:21 PM IST
India vs Pakistan Live Score: SIX! Kohli into the 90s!
India vs Pakistan Live Score: It's a race between these two now, who will get to the century first? Kohli has moved to 96 with that shot off just 80 balls. Smashes Naseem over his head for six quite like how he hit Rauf at the MCG at the 2022 T20 World Cup.Story SavedLive Score
