Man of the Match - Virat Kohli. Says it's probably the biggest one of his career so far (award). Adds it was a high pressure game and feels good to get this win under the belt. (On being compared to Tendulkar) Says it's a big compliment and expectations will be high. He hates losing and loves winning. He likes the expectations. Admits it's tough to keep the focus. He stays in his space and tries things out within himself. He is glad to get this win. Says his role in the team is to bat through and the power hitters will play the big shots. Credits Raina's and Dhawan's knock. Thanks to the fans for coming out in numbers here in Adelaide. Says it was too loud for Dhoni to grab the players' attention.

India got an early breakthrough with the ball but Sohail and Shehzad showed some promise. They were batting to their plan but the Indian bowlers came back hard. There was a collapse and then Pakistan simply lost the plot. It was Misbah once again who showed lone fight. He ran out of partners for the umpteenth time in his career. India bowled well. Shami was the pick as he grabbed four wickets.

!

6-0. India maintain their cent percent record against Pakistan in World Cups! Once again it was the Pakistani collapse which let them down. India posted a good total first up, thanks to Kohli's ton and Dhawan and Raina's fifties.
