A miserable match for Wahab, flayed by India's batsmen for a hugely expensive 87 runs in 8.4 overs, ended when he fell in his delivery stride and sustained an injury that saw him leave the field. In reply, Pakistan were all out for 164 as India won by 124 runs via the Duckworth/Lewis method.

On a day that completely belonged to India, both bowlers and batsmen shone to crush the rival team.

When on 37, Azhar Ali was dropped by Bhuvneshwar Kumar running in from long-on. The skipper said that they have chose to play aggressimavely to keep the run rate high as match was playing under the shadow of rain.

Kohli, who on Saturday had dismissed reports of a rift with India coach Anil Kumble, was equally contemptuous of Pakistan's attack during a blistering innings of 81 not out off just 68 balls that included six fours and three sixes.

All-rounder Hardik Pandya (unbeaten at 20) added further woes to Pakistan as he rounded off India's innings by blasting three sixes to help them reach 319-3. He was well supported by Ravindra Jadeja and Pandya, who picked up two wickets each.

It was a surprise move from the Indian team management to send Pandya ahead of former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni at Edgbaston Stadium. When rain is around, the team batting second gets a huge advantage.

Rohit Sharma scored a match-winning 91 off 119 balls to set up a comprehensive Indian win.


While addressing mediapersons during post match press conference, Kohli asserted that Yuvi bated superb at very crucial stage.

Skipper Ahmed started with the pace of Amir and left-arm spin of Wasim.

Mohammed Amir was working up with good pace and with the wind blowing right across the ground, he was getting the ball to move away from the right hander.

In the end, though, the sides were separated not just by quality but by mentality.

Riaz was unable to take the field after his injury and didn't come out to bat after Umesh picked up the ninth Pakistani wicket of Hasan Ali in the 34th over. From there on the Pakistan batting line up went back to their hut in a procession.

India's captain Virat Kohli had plenty to celebrate in the Champions Trophy win over Pakistan. And the way he batted was the way only he can strike the ball, hitting low full tosses for fours and sixes, and even digging out yorkers for fours was outstanding.

The fielding gaffes began nearly immediately, Ahmed Shehzad fluffing a regulation stop at point to set a trend that peaked with Hasan Ali dropping Yuvraj on eight and sub-fielder Faheem Ashraf shelling Kohli on 43.
