Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat. India got off to an assured start with Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan refraining from playing their exuberant game.

Virat Kohli added two good partnerships to steady India’s innings and give them a good platform to launch in the last few overs. First he put on 126 runs with Shikhar Dhawan for the second wicket and then added a half-century stand with Suresh Raina. Both Suresh Raina and Shikhar Dhawan scored a half-century each. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli went on to record his 22nd One-Day International (ODI) ton. He was dropped twice on way to the landmark ton, which also happens to be the first one by an Indian batsman against Pakistan in a World Cup.

They lost four wickets in quick succession following the drinks break. Umesh Yadav struck twice in the 24th over. Misbahul-Haq scored a good half-century even as wickets continued to tumble from the other end for Pakistan. Eventually, India won the match comfortably.
