The wait is now over. With few hiccups here and there, blue jersey boys still managed to finish the most awaited match of the ICC world cup. According to Duckworth Lewis rule which was applied due to rain, the match was cut short to 40 overs and India won with the huge margin of 85 runs. Though Pakistan won the toss and choose to the ball, the game passed right out of their hands as quick as that toss. Chasing a 337-run target, Pakistan never looked in control in the second innings. With Rohit Sharma scoring fabulous 140 runs in 113 balls, he won the player of the match award.
The burden was shadowing over Indian shoulders as Shikhar Dhawan and Bhuvaneshvar Kumar were injured. Big shoes were filled in by Vijay Shankar. His first debut match in ICC world cup and he takes a wicket on his first ball and gives India a big wicket. Lacking the intensity to chase a 300+ total, Pakistan struggled to match the soaring required run rate. At the end of 40 overs, Pakistan ended up scoring 212/6. For India, Vijay Shankar, Kuldeep Yadav and Hardik Pandya took a couple of wickets each. Sarfaraz Ahmed yawning in the middle of India-Pak game gave amused twitter fans all kinds of feels.
