Defending champions India came with an all-round performance to defeat arch-rivals Pakistan by 124 runs through Duckworth-Lewis (D/L) method in what turned out to be a one-sided Champions Trophy encounter at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground here on Sunday.

Yuvi's knock gave some much-needed momentum to the India innings late on, and helped them most a mammoth score of 319 for three from 48 overs.

When their turn to bat came, Pakistan were never really in the game, losing wickets at regular intervals after a 47- run stand for the first wicket between Azhar Ali (50) and Ahmed Shehzad (12).

But Pakistan were passive opponents, terrible in the field, flaky under crucial catches and unable to mount a credible chase when asked to pursue 289 in 41 overs on Duckworth/Lewis after a series of rain delays. Pakistan ended their innings at 164/9 after 33.4 overs with injured last man Wahab Riaz unable to bat as India won with 44 balls to spare.

A 30-run stand between Ali and Mohammad Hafeez followed by a 23-run partnership by Hafeez and Shoaib Malik was the only bit of resistance that the Pakistanis could manage thereafter.

For India, Umesh Yadav scalped three wickets while Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya took two wickets each and Bhuvneshwar Kumar returned with one.

"Wahab Riaz twisted his ankle in Sunday's ICC (International Cricket Council) Champions Trophy match against India", said a Pakistan Cricket Board statement.

Pak skipper Sarfaraz, before the game had said that Pakistan are ranked number 8 in the team rankings and have nothing to lose.

"I felt like a club batsman while playing alongside Yuvi, the way he was hitting the ball".

Apart from the manner of their surrender, Pakistan are also fretting on the fitness of fast bowlers Amir and Wahab. The Sharma-Dhawan combine scored at a brisk 5.55 runs in the 24.3 overs that they batted together. By putting up a huge total in 48 overs team India was in the driver's seat straightaway. Play was temporarily halted for rain 9.5 overs into the match. And we came back in, and so as a player who likes to play the long innings, till the end and usually plays like that for the team, it becomes very hard to find momentum every time you come back and all you gotta do is play yourself in again.

"Pakistan needs to do some soul searching before its next game against the top-ranked ODI team - South Africa".

Left-hander Yuvraj smashed a rapid 53 while helping Kohli add 93 for the third wicket in a mere 59 deliveries.
