Jasprit Bumrah and spin do the trick as India hand Pakistan another World Cup beating
Another Rohit Sharma special the icing on the cake for a packed house in Ahmedabad
India 192 for 3 (Rohit 86, Shreyas 53*) beat Pakistan 191 (Babar 50, Rizwan 49, Bumrah 2-19, Kuldeep 2-35, Jadeja 2-38) by seven wickets
The game that always promises and rarely delivers came and went once more, promising plenty at various stages, and ultimately delivering what a blue mass of humanity had come to see: a crushing India win. A stunning middle-overs collapse from Pakistan which had them lose eight wickets for 36 runs turned what should have been an enthralling run chase into a dull formality. Each India bowler played a part in their own way, five different players splitting the ten Pakistan wickets evenly. With Pakistan folding for 191, India - spearheaded by captain Rohit Sharma - dazzled and sizzled, though really, it was like bringing a gun to a knife fight. Pakistan had already checked out of this game, and were bystanders as India romped home in front of around 100,000 supporters to go to pole position in World Cup race for which they look favourites.
