IN PICS: India's top-order shines in win over Pakistan

Share

With Champions Trophy being a tournament which has actually no room for slip ups, India would definitely want to improve on this aspect as they progress in the tournament. The Indian innings was interrupted twice but Rohit looked good for a hundred. Yuvraj ended with an unbeaten 53 off 32 balls with eight fours and a six. And Yuvi came in and just took all the pressure off me.

The Baroda all-rounder repaid the faith shown in him by the team management, by belting 20 runs from just six balls.

India's Virat Kohli at the end of the innings.

"And the way he batted, the way only he can strike the ball, hitting low full tosses for 4s and 6s, and even digging out yorkers for fours, was outstanding". In the field we were 6 out of 10. "We need to tighten our fielding to compete hard against the best teams". It also meant he was unable to bat as Pakistan, chasing a revised target of 289 in 41 overs in a rain-affected match, slumped to 164 for nine after India had piled up 319 for three in 48 overs.

"This one's done and dusted..." Shikhar and Rohit - last time we won here, the opening partnership was crucial. Every time we go down to training, we try and get the basics right. The skipper said that they have made a decision to play aggressimavely to keep the run rate high as match was playing under the shadow of rain.

"Honestly I won't lie, pressure was there. Against other sides, we might use two spinners, depending on their strengths".

Yuvraj was later named Man of the Match for his stupendous knock. "I think this was a very complete performance starting the tournament", Kohli said at the post-match presentation.

"When Yuvi came in, we didn't go back out again", Kohli said.

"I was lucky I was dropped, but I capitalised and I was hitting it well".

PCB said Wahab suffered ankle injury while bowling in the match against India on Sunday, which Pakistan lost by a big 124 run margin.

"Wahab will not be able to continue to play in remaining games of the Champions Trophy", the statement said, adding that it will take minimum two weeks for the player to recover from his injury.

"A record crowd provided an electric soundtrack on a frustrating wet day as India's batsmen pounded Pakistan into the ground", The Hindu wrote.

After resumption of the game, India began to change gears, Sharma took 13 runs off Wahab's over before getting run out on 91, while trying to steal a tight single.
