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.

Pakistan 187/9 (40.1) Rauf 0, Afridi 0, Jadeja 1/35 (8.1)

Hardik with another! Nawaz has to go... I-N-D-I-A is loud and clear, reverberating around this stadium.

Pakistan have collapsed, they’ll do well to pass 200 now.

Hardik with that little grin on his face, mimicking how it kept low and laughing at Bumrah.

Oh, and there’s another, magic from Jadeja now, the sea of blue in the stands is quite a sight.

Nine down!
