No Pakistan fans is ‘big advantage’ for India in World Cup

Hosts India bundled out Pakistan for 191 in 42.5 overs before quickly chasing down their target to win a World Cup blockbuster between the Asian arch-rivals at a heaving Narendra Modi Stadium on Saturday.

Put in to bat, Pakistan were on 155-2 in the 30th over and appeared to be cruising towards a 300-plus total with skipper Babar Azam (50) and in-form batter Mohammad Rizwan (49) at the crease. But India’s Mohammed Siraj then dismissed Babar, triggering a spectacular collapse, with Pakistan unable to hold out for the rest of their quota of 50 overs. Jasprit Bumrah was the pick of the Indian bowlers, claiming 2-19 in a clinical display of his distinctive style of seam bowling.

Rohit Sharma then fired 86 from 63 balls en route to a quick win, as India extended their record to three from three. Get the latest Cricket World Cup odds here.

Rohit Sharma smashes Pakistan bowlers as India race towards victory

It’s explosive, brutal and demoralising for the Pakistan bowlers, as Rohit Sharma hammers them to all corners of the ground.

301 sixes in ODIs... Shajid Afridi (351) and Chris Gayle (331) are the only men ahead of him now.

It’s not always pretty, but it doesn’t need to be, as Haris Rauf found, sliced over the boundary, it’s 90m!

44 runs from 29 balls, this could get ugly if India put their foot down, just 113 runs needed from more than 40 overs. Yikes.
