Right, that's about it from us today. Don't forget to watch the highlights on BBC Two tonight and we'll be back for the Australia-Bangladesh day-nighter tomorrow.

Pakistan captain Safraz Ahmed: "We are not up to the mark in the fielding, it was in control in 40 overs but lost the plot in the last eight overs.

"No regrets (in choosing to field after winning to the toss), I think we will sit together and talk about how to control our bowling rate and also our batting as well."

India captain Virat Kholi: "With bat and ball we were nine out of ten, in the field we were six today. If we tune that up to eight or nine we will be a strong side, it was a very complete game for us.

"Skill-wise we were clinical, in the field is something we can improve on.

"We are delighted with all of our batsman scoring runs. Rohit needed runs under his belt, he's not played us for a while.

"The middle order was outstanding and Yuvi was outstanding. I felt like a club batter next to him. He's a game changer with the bat."

Man of the match Yuvraj Singh: "We started well with the bat and the bowlers came and stuck to the plan and took wickets at regular intervals.

"We had a lot of wickets in the end and I thought if I feel good I can score. I got lucky and got dropped and I capitalised.

"Our openers gave us a good start.

"India-Pakistan is very special, the Indian fans make it special for us"

But, in reality, Pakistan had their bellies' tickled...

And Ravi Jadeja's run out was pretty special too...

What will I remember this match for? Some brilliant India late-innings biffing...

Yuvraj Singh is man of the match. Is that because Virat Kohli has so many of them they like to spread it around? What might have happened if Hasan Ali did not have butter on his fingers?

Did that live up to the hype? I'm not sure. It was ruined by the rain and by Pakistan rolling over.

Pakistan set the tone with Amir in that first over making it difficult for India but after that India always had an answer. Pakistan were unsure of their plans.

They will be hurt by this loss because it was comprehensive.

From India's point of view, a brilliant start.

We've seen all eight teams and I reckon India have been by far the most impressive. Having said that, Pakistan were absolutely woeful.

Handshakes all round. Riaz is unable to bat. A comfortable victory for India. It's a bit of a hiding, frankly.

It's difficult to assess when games are changed around with rain breaks but that's a thumping win.

India win by 124 runs

Hasan c Dhawan b Yadav 0 (Pak 164)

All over! Hasan Ali chips Umesh Yadav to mid-wicket. He's only the ninth wicket to fall but, after a period of confusion, it becomes apparent that Wahab Riaz will not bat. India have thumped Pakistan out of sight.

Jonathan Agnew

BBC Test Match Special

Amir's gone down fighting to be fair to him but it was a real dolly there. It was a straightforward one.


Amir c Jadhav b Yadav 9 (Pak 164-8)

For some reason, Kedar Jadhav looks solid when the ball is drilled at him. After dropping a skier, he clings on when Mohammad Amir belts a drive. If Wahab Riaz doesn't bat, India might only be one wicket away...

not-outNot out

Pak 162-7

Alas, not. It looked like a dawdling Shadab Khan might have been by a direct hit from the deep, but he had enough about him to get the bat down. It was the least he could do...

Third umpire

Pak 161-7

Please, please tell me this is a comedy run out...

James Taylor

Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

He never got set. The only thing is the light blue sky and white ball and that's the only excuse I'm giving him.

The key is to get your eyes level and feet set and he was always on the move.

Shadab dropped on 12

Pak 159-7

Good lord, this is bad. India have fielded like ferrets today, but this is awful from Kedar Jadhav. Straight up from Shadab Khan, all the time in the world for Jadhav to take it at cover. Somehow he lets it slip through the fingers, much to the anger of those who want this one wrapped up.

Pak 154-7

Jadeja rattles through his over, prolonging the Pakistan's eventual defeat. He's taken two wickets and pulled off a direct-hit run out, which are worth looking at...

Pak 152-7

Mohammad Amir, who left the field earlier, is fit enough to bat. Still, this one is done, an overcooked burger on the barbie. All that's left are the formalities.

Graeme Swann

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

The Indians are barely celebrating that wicket, they know this game is done.


Sarfraz c Dhoni b Pandya 15 (Pak 151-7)

It's a procession. Sarfraz Ahmed tries to guide Hardik Pandya to third man, but only succeeds in finding the gloves of MS Dhoni. India aren't just winning this, they are lording it.

Graeme Swann

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

He's got the fielders in trying to tempt the man, trying to fish for some rabbit-pie wickets. Well played, straight off the bat.

Pak 146-6

Need 143 from 72 balls

Ravi Jadeja will be all over this Pakistan lower order. Slip in place, Shadab not really sure which way it's going. When it doubt, swipe. Six over wide long-on, then a pull for four. Game on!

Pak 136-6

Need 153 from 78 balls

There must be a rush to strap the pads on in the Pakistan in the dressing room. Shadab Khan is the latest to be pushed out of the door, only saved from being run out when the throw from the covers misses the stumps. There won't be long to go in this one.

Graeme Swann

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

It was actually quite a pleasant shot to watch; on the up drive, freedom of the arms, David Gower-esque. But straight to extra cover.


Imad c Jadhav b Pandya 0 (Pak 135-6)

Hmmmm. If Imad Wasim is the greatest cricketer to be born in Swansea, it doesn't say much about Swansea. This shot, to his first ball, is ambitious. Leaning back to drive a ball that wasn't quite there. There was a decent connection, but it was straight to the man at extra cover.

Tom Fordyce

Chief sports writer at Edgbaston

The concourses and concrete surrounds rolling with contented Indian supporters, swimming in the warm evening sunshine, noisily certain of a comfortable win to take into Monday morning.

Pak 134-5

Imad Wasim (the greatest cricketer to be born in Swansea?) is the new man. When I said that you can't keep Jadeja out of the game, have a look at the run out...

Graeme Swann

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

The lack of pace on the ball from Jadeja made a cross the line shot a bit tricky. Hafeez gave it his all but it was a top edge.


Hafeez c Bhuvneshwar b Jadeja 33 (Pak 131-5)

And the next one, please. Pakistan are careering towards defeat here, each wicket more inevitable that the last. Mohammad Hafeez takes a slog-sweep at Ravi Jadeja (you can't keep him out of the game) and is held on the leg-side fence. This one is almost done as a contest.

What is the reluctance in many of the Champions Trophy squads to pick spin bowlers? India, Australia, England, South Africa and New Zealand have their squads dominated by them. We all saw the damage that Imran Tahir did yesterday.

Charlie Hayes

Pak 131-4

Back comes Hardik Pandya, certainly a challenger for the Dashing XI. Pakistan's running remains unconvincing, with a Tango in the middle of the pitch never far away. Every over that doesn't go for double figures sends the rate a little higher. It's like struggling to climb a mountain that keeps getting taller.


Graeme Swann

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

Pakistan need something magnificent here. India have been incredibly professional today.

Pak 123-4

Need 166 from 96 balls

I like watching Sarfraz bat. He's a busy ball of energy. He must be a nightmare to play against. The skipper lap-sweeps Jadeja fine for four. Even with that, though, the required rate is above 10 an over. Pakistan might want to find that jetpack and strap it on.

Jay: Pakistan look devoid of ideas and don't seem to have a plan B. Plan A being praying for rain, of course

Pak 117-4

Looking again, Jadeja picked the ball up on the bounce, knee-high and had the ball out of his hands quicker than a hiccup. Sarfraz Ahmed, the skipper, is the new man. He's got a mountain to climb.

Isa Guha

Ex-England seamer on BBC Test Match Special

You do not run to Ravi Jadeja he hits the stumps every single time.

If you've been watching much of the IPL he's thrown down the stumps a lot from point.

Just as he got going and offered a bit of hope for Pakistan, he's gone.
