India coast to emphatic victory, Pakistan bundled out for 164

Pakistan surrendered meekly at their much anticipated encounter with arch rivals India. They were bowled out for a paltry at 164 in 33.4 overs, in reply to India's mammoth 319/3 in 48 overs. All the Indian batsmen fired.

Allrounder Hardik Pandya smashed three sixes at the start of the last over as India let rip against rival Pakistan to reach 319-3 from 48 overs in Group B of the Champions Trophy on Sunday. Defending champion India hit 72 crucial runs in the last four overs, with Pandya ending on 20 off six deliveries. Most of those came during a costly 23-run last over for Imad Wasim (0-66), making it an even bigger challenge for Pakistan's unproven batting lineup.

Pakistan's target at the start of its innings was 324 in 48 overs under the Duckworth-Lewis method, but this became 289 in 41 overs after play was again interrupted by rain.
