India coast to emphatic victory, Pakistan bundled out for 164

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.
