India vs Pakistan Highlights, World Cup 2023: Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav triggered a stunning Pakistan collapse and shared four wickets in India's dominant victory over their archrivals at the 2023 World Cup on Saturday. The seven-wicket win in front of a crowd of more than 100,000 fans at Narendra Modi Stadium was India’s eighth consecutive victory over Pakistan in World Cups in a streak that began in 1992. Bumrah took 2/19 in seven overs and Kuldeep picked 2/35 in 10 overs as Pakistan crashed from 155/2 (29.3 overs) to 191 all out in 42.5 overs. Apart from Kuldeep and Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Siraj and Ravindra Jadeja all got two wickets each....Read More

Then, Indian captain Rohit Sharma blazed a 36-ball half-century and Shreyas Iyer provided the finishing touches with an unbeaten fifty of his own as India raced to the victory line. Rohit scored 86 runs off 63 balls, including six fours and six sixes, as India finished with 192/3 (30.3 overs). Shreyas got to his half century with a boundary, which was also the winning runs, finishing unbeaten on 53 off 62 balls. India lead the table now with six points — ahead of New Zealand on net run-rate — after three straight wins. Pakistan, after their first loss of the tournament, have four points from three games and are fourth in the points table.

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: And that's that!

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: Well the match everyone was waiting for has come and gone and really, the result was a foregone conclusion over two hours ago. Pakistan looked set to become the first team to really challenge India in this tournament when Babar and Rizwan were cruising along. But they somehow managed to go from being 155/2 to not even being able to reach 200. Rohit Sharma then just came in and picked up where he left off against Afghanistan and Shreyas Iyer provided the finishing touches to the rout. India have jumped past New Zealand to the top of the table. They are tied with the Kiwis on six points but their net run rate of +1.821 puts them ahead. But this could be just a temporary top spot as their net run rate is only second best to South Africa's +2.360. The Proteas have a game in hand on India and their third match is against the Netherlands on Tuesday.

Those who were at the stadium today probably had to go through all kinds of hell to get that ticket, and then to get to the match, unless they were among the lucky many who got passes from somewhere or the other. It might be safe to say that they probably got their money and effort's worth if all they wanted to see was an India victory.

Speaking of India, they are looking scarily good, aren't they. They have played Australia, Afghanistan and Pakistan, not the easiest of starts on paper. And yet, they have beaten them all comprehensively and sit at the top of the table. That's where you should stop though. As MS Dhoni says in that Oreo ad that comes every time there is a break in play, you know what you want to see. But it's better if you don't say it. Stick to what can be proven, which is that India are looking very good indeed. Ciao!

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: Rohit Sharma looking to maintain a balance

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: “The bowlers were the ones today as well who set the game up for us. I don't think it was a 190 pitch. At one stage we were looking at 280. The way they showed grit says a lot. That is something we pride ourselves in. Whoever gets the ball does the job. We've got 6 individuals who can do the job with the ball. My job as a captain is important there as well. It's to read the conditions and figure out who's the right guy to do the job. It's only because the guys - before entering the WC - they got a lot of runs. We were very clear what we wanted to do. Didn't want to be in two minds about who's going to bat where. All in all, it's looking good. Want to keep my fingers crossed. Don't want to get too excited. Don't want to get two low as well. Want to stay balanced. Keep calm and keep moving forward. Every opposition we come up against are all quality. You have to play well on that particular day, and that's what we're looking at.”

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: Babar Azam's thoughts

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: “We started well, good partnership. We just planned to play normal cricket an build a partnerships. Suddenly there was a collapse and we could not finish well. Not good for us, the way we started, our target was 280-290 but the collapse cost us. The total was not good. We are not up to the mark with the new ball. The way Rohit played, was an outstanding innings. We just tried to take wicket, but that didn't happen.”

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: What Bumrah said

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: “It felt good. Usually you try to analyse the wicket as soon as possible. We realised the wicket is on the slower side so we wanted to bowl hard lengths. We were trying to make it as difficult as possible. (On how he reads pitches quickly and understands what lengths work) Just being aware I guess. I used to ask a lot of questions when I was young and that helps me now. Now I'm experienced. In my younger days they (seniors) were used to being troubled by me sometimes (with questions), but it helps to read the wicket and try different options. (On the slower ball to get rid of Rizwan) We were bowling in the middle overs and I saw Jaddu's ball was turning, not too much but a little bit. I count my slower ball as a spinner's slower ball, one of those days where it came off. (On the ball that got Shadab) Little phase where there was reverse swing, one of the occasions when the white ball was reverse swinging.”

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: India beat Pakistan by 7 wickets

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: Shreyas Iyer smashes the third ball of the 31st down the ground for a four. He thus gets to his half century and hits the winning runs for India as well. India have done it with 19.3 overs to spare. They have won all three of the matches they have played thus far in this World Cup and move to the top of the table. Jasprit Bumrah is revealed as the player of the match. Unless an Indian batter scored a century, this award was always going to a bowler. They shredded the Pakistan middle order, which has been a strong point for them in recent matches, into a million little pieces and that is what laid the foundation for the batters to exploit later on.

Oct 14, 2023 8:01 PM IST

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: FOUR!

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: India need just six to win now and there is a very real possibility of Shreyas Iyer not getting a half century, which would be just extraordinary. India needed 27 to win when he got into his 40s, he is now on 48.

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: The players walk out

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill out to open the innings for India. Shaheen Afridi with the ball in his hands. They need wickets in the first five overs. That is the first miracle they need to work. If they don't well, they'll need to perform tougher miracles.

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: Ready for the chase

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: Allright then, can Pakistan pull a bunny out of the hat. Because magic tricks and miracles is what they may have to realistically depend on. Shubman Gill is sitting in the dugout in his entire gear. The Pakistan players have been out warming up.

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: Kuldeep Yadav talks

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: "The wicket was a bit slow. We were focusing on the length. They were not attacking too much so I was just focusing on my pace and my variations," Kuldeep tells the host broadcasters. "I was bowling very well. Not too much width because of the field restrictions. They weren't trying too much. Rizwan didn't sweep me a lot so I wanted to make him play the bad shot. I've been watching Saud Shakeel the last couple of games and he'd been trying to sweep a lot. He thought that ball was slow but it skidded on. Unbelievable to play in front of this crowd. This atmosphere is crazy, playing against Pakistan and seeing close to 90,000 people here."

Oct 14, 2023 5:22 PM IST

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: Pakistan 191 all out

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: Big appeal for LBW off the fifth ball for Jadeja in the 43rd. Umpire shakes his head, Rohit takes the review. It is three reds and that is that for the Pakistan innings. Jadeja ends with two wickets, as do Bumrah, Kuldeep, Siraj and Pandya. A team effort if there ever was any. Pakistan seemed to be cruising during that stand between Babar and Rizwan. They lost five wickets for 31 runs between the 31st and 40th overs. They lasted just 42.5 overs despite being 155/2 in the 30th.

Oct 14, 2023 5:11 PM IST

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: Hardik Pandya gets his second wicket as Nawaz smashes it straight to mid-on. The ball seemed to dip on the fielder Bumrah a little bit and he in fact does well to hold on. You just can't keep him out of the game. Neither can you stop Pakistan's collapse.

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: When it rains it pours, Pakistan's high performing middle order has been completely nullified and this crowd is all over them now.

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: OUT! Successful review at last for India

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: Shakeel stays back for the second ball of the 33rd over. The ball hits the pads, loud appeal but umpire doesn't move. Rohit takes the review, despite the fact that Rahul doesn't look too convinced. No bat involved and this time, it is three proper reds. The ball would have hit the middle of middle stump, he was plumb!

Oct 14, 2023 4:16 PM IST

India vs Pakistan Live Score, World Cup: Low full toss for the last ball of the 29th from Kuldeep, Babar smashes it through point for four. That also brings up Pakistan's 150 and their captain has stepped up at just the perfect time here.
