A great batting performance from the top order, combined with some good bowling gave India an easy 124-run victory (DLS method) over traditional rivals Pakistan in their ICC Champions Trophy 2017 Group B contest in Edgbaston in Birmingham on Sunday. India scored 319 for 3 in their rain truncated 48 overs and then dismissed Pakistan to 164 off 33.4 overs as the latter chased revised Duckworth-Lewis total of 289 off 41 overs. (SCORECARD)
 
Pakistan looked well set to chase down the revised DLS score of 324 off 48 overs before another rain break reduced their asking rate further. However, none of the batsmen were really able to get to grips with the Indian bowling, especially the slow left-arm spin of Ravindra Jadeja in the middle of the innings. Only opener Azhar Ali (50) seemed to have some clue on how to deal with the bowling while the rest of the batting was none too impressive.

Man of the Match, Yuvraj Singh calls it a good start to the tournament by getting some runs on the board. Adds that the openers gave them a good platform, Virat Kohli finished it well and he got the license to attack today. Informs that it's not easy to come back from an injury but one has to get out there and announce to the opposition that he is here to attack. Mentions that the bowlers bowled well today and they stuck to their plans. Ends by saying that they would like to carry this confidence into the Sri Lanka game.

Umesh Yadav was the best bowler for India, taking 3 for 30. Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja chipped in with a couple of wickets each. India didn't field that well and it will be something they would want to better going ahead. The rain did threaten to play spoilsport but in the end, we had enough time for a result. A lot was expected from this contest but as has been the case in the last few years, it was another one-sided game.

!

India have wrapped the game in fine fashion here. They had done most of the damage with the bat itself when they posted a par score on the board. It was thanks to the fifties from their top order batsmen that they got to that total despite the rain hampering their progress. The bowlers then backed up the good work. Azhar Ali was the lone man fighting for Pakistan in the chase with a fifty but he did not get any help from the rest as they kept losing wickets at intervals.

Umesh Yadav to Hasan Ali

OUT! 3-fer for Umesh Yadav! A touch behind length and angling in. It's too quick for the tailender Hasan Ali, who ends up checking his shot straight to Dhawan at mid-wicket. All the players are shaking hands as WAHAB RIAZ, who was injured in the first innings won't come out to bat. INDIA WIN BY 124 RUNS (DLS METHOD).

Umesh Yadav to Mohammad Amir

OUT! Soft dismissal! Back of a length, angling away, Amir backs away a touch and looks to jab it over covers but gets it off the higher part of the bat. And the ball goes straight to Jadhav at cover, who doesn't make a mistake this time.
