India won by 76 runs
Man of The Match: Virat Kohli
Adelaide: ‘Na Ishq mein hai na Pyaar mein…Jitna maza world cup mein Pakistan ki haar mein hai’…. A fan posted in facebook after the 6th win of Indians against Pakistan in world cup on Sunday. And this is very true lines for all Indian fans, as half of them are not interested in the rest of the tournament. For them Team India are already the ‘world champions’. So its actually ‘the super Sunday’ for the ‘Men in Blue’. They defeat arch-rivals Pakistan by 76 runs in their Pool B match at the Adelaide Oval.
With this fabulous victory, India continued their winning run against Pakistan in World Cup encounters, registering their sixth win on the trot in as many encounters, as India bowled and fielded brilliantly to defend a 300-run total.
Indian pacers, who have faced some flak recently for their poor performances, brilliantly rose to the occasion even as Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq hit 76 to keep his team in the hunt, but in the end he ran out of partners and his was the ninth wicket to fall.
Mohammed Shami took four wickets, while Umesh Yadav and Mohit Sharma scalped two each as India bowled out Pakistan for 224 runs in 47 overs.
Earlier, Virat Kohli (107) got back to form with a skillful century as India posted a competitive 300 runs in board. While chasing the run accept Ahmed Shehzad- Haris Sohail’s 3rd wicket partnership and later Misbah-ul-haq’s 74 runs innings, Pak batsman’s re’ totally failed today. Result, Pakistan lost the match by 76 runs. This is highest margin lost by Pakistan against India in a world cup match ever.
