Update The Indian players are striding out in the centre. Yuzvendra Chahal to bowl. The umpire has signalled the start of Powerplay 3. A slip in place.
Update 1854 local (1754 GMT) Good news! The rain has stopped and the covers are coming off. Play to resume at 1910 local and it's reduced to 40 overs. The new target is 302 for Pakistan which means they will need 136 runs in 30 balls.
Update 1843 local (1743 GMT) The drizzle is still on. The officials are spotted under their umbrellas having a chat. The covers are on. We are hearing that the cut-off time for this match is 1915 local. Let's hope for the best.
Update DRIZZLING! The players are leaving the field. The groundsmen run in with the hover cover. Pakistan are 86 runs behind the DLS par score at this stage. A commanding performance by India so far and they would like to return on the field to take the remaining wickets and make this victory even sweeter. For Pakistan, this loss will hurt their NRR badly. Another dismal performance against their arch-rivals at the grand stage. Let's hope for the resumption soon. Stay tuned for more updates...
34.6 overs (0 Run) Three dots to close the over. A bit short and outside off, Imad plays it down from the crease but straight to point. A successful over for Shankar!
34.5 overs (0 Run) Gets behind the line of the delivery and pushes it back in the direction of the bowler.
34.4 overs (0 Run) Beaten! Some extra bounce there. Shortish and outside off, Wasim flays at it and the ball goes over his bat.

34.2 overs (0 Run) Pitches it up and on off, it's driven off the front foot to covers.
34.1 overs (0 Run) OUT! Another one hits the stumps! India on a roll. Shankar on a roll. Pakistan seem to have no goal. They are neither able to attack, nor able to survive. Outside off, on a length, Sarfaraz looks to work it to the leg side but the ball cuts in off the seam, takes the inside edge and hits the leg stump. Sorry state of affairs for Pakistan and Sarfaraz.
33.6 overs (1 Run) Slower one. Short and on off, Sarfaraz just guides it down to third man and keeps strike with a single.
33.5 overs (1 Run) A low full toss again, on off, Wasim bunts it down to mid on for one.
33.4 overs (1 Run) Bumrah goes for a yorker but it turns out to be a sharp low full toss. Ahmed fails to flick and it goes off his pads to backward square leg. They cross and it's given as a leg bye.
33.3 overs (1 Run) The batsman has flicked the ball off his pads. One run added to the total.
33.2 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Whacked down the ground! Back of a length delivery angling into the batsman, Wasim goes deep inside the crease and hammers it past the bowler for a boundary.

31.6 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Fine shot! Short delivery, on off, Imad does well to ride the bounce and pulls it nicely to wide long on for a boundary. This partnership moves to 25 but is scoring at a rate way below the required one, almost half down.
31.5 overs (1 Run) Ahmed opens the face of the bat and helps it to third man. The batsmen have run through for a single.
31.4 overs (1 Run) Overthrow! Fuller and on off, Wasim forces it down to mid on and Pandya has a shy at the bowler's end. He misses and the batsmen cross for a run. Kuldeep returns the ball towards the striker's end. It hits Sarfaraz' bat and rolls behind square leg. No extra run taken.
