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.

New Zealand provide Kane Williamson injury update and set return date

Kane Williamson has suffered an “undisplaced fracture” to his left thumb in a major blow for New Zealand at the ODI Cricket World Cup in India.

The Black Caps have called up Tom Blundell, who will fly to India as cover, though he is not part of the squad officially yet.

That’s because Williamson has hope of featuring again in the tournament, with an X-ray confirming the injury and “the aim of being available for the back end of pool play next month”.
