India dominated the proceedings right from the beginning as Pakistan put them to bat after they won the toss. The Indian openers took their team off to a great start and stitched together a 136-run stand before Shikhar Dhawan was dismissed for a well-made half-century. Yuvraj Singh showed his hitting prowess with a quick-fire half-century, Virat Kohli added to the total with 81 runs while Rohit Sharma top-scored for the team with a brilliant 91 as India posted a mammoth 319 for 3 in 48 overs in a rain-reduced match.

Pakistan started off well as Azhar Ali and Ahmed Shehzad got their team off to a decent beginning but the former World Champions lost wickets at regular intervals and were bundled out for 164 for 9 with Wahab Riaz unable to bat.

Congratulations poured in on social media as former and current Indian cricketers celebrated the win and they didn't hide their emotions on a disappointing Pakistan show in the big match. Here are some of the reactions on Twitter after India's brilliant win.
