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.
