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 173/7 (37.0) Hasan 2, Nawaz 2, Kuldeep 2/34 (10.0)

This is quite remarkable from India, the atmosphere, subdued through the tournament, is now electric. A crackling of noise as the Indian players dance in the middle while Pakistani batters trudge back to the dressing room.

Bumrah, the master, that tall pose as he gets to the top of his run-up, then crashing that lead arm down and Pakistan have not dealt with it well at all.

Shadab Khan was the last victim of Boom Boom Bumrah! A lovely length ball in line with off and Shadab gets it all wrong, off stump flying.

A long way back now for Pakistan, 155/2... 175/7.
