  1. Closing time

    And that's your lot for day two of the Cricket World Cup. Thanks for being with us.

    Two more games down and more dazzling displays from some of the world's biggest names.

    David Miller and JP Duminy broke a record as South Africa beat Zimbabwe by 62 runs in Hamilton.

    While in Adelaide, it was India who took the bragging rights over rivals Pakistan with a 76-run win.

    Umesh Yadav

    Don't forget, the action continues later today. Join us for West Indies against Ireland from Nelson in New Zealand from around 21:30 GMT.

    Jay: All the teams winning so far have scored 300 or more and more importantly, have batted first. England take note.

  3. 'This was for the India fans'

    More from Virat Kohli on India's win and his century: "My role in the team is to bat through and let the power hitters around come in and play their shots.

    "I really commend the way Suresh Raina and Shikhar Dhawan played today to help us get to the score we did.

    "It's also a huge thank you to the fans. Their support was fantastic and the atmosphere today electric, so this is for them as well."

    Virat Kohli
  4. Captain's view

    India captain MS Dhoni: "It was a very good performance, started by the batsmen. It's needed here to put runs on the board and give the bowlers the cushion of that extra 20 runs.

    "Over here the first 10 overs aren't that easy and the ball varies in pace and bounce.

    "It was important to get a long partnership early on and then Raina and Kohli capitalised late on.

    "I felt all the boys had a good performance with the bat and the ball and that's very important at the start of a long World Cup."

  5. Post update

    Geoffrey Boycott

    Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

    "Pakistan have a lot to do to improve. Only one bowler showed pace, and the rest need to be more disciplined. India are a force to be reckoned with because they'll always have strong batting. Ashwin bowled well today, he turned it when the Pakistan slow bowlers couldn't."

  6. Captain's view

    Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq: "They played well, posted a good total and bowled well. When we lost wickets in the middle it made it hard.

    "The pitch was very good, and our bowlers pulled them back well in the last 10 overs. They might have scored more. Two or three of our batsmen didn't get in and you can't say much about that.

    "Now we have to look forward, we can't think about this game and not concentrate on the next ones. We need our confidence and momentum back."

  7. Post update

    Geoffrey Boycott

    Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

    "Pakistan never really got in the game with the bat. Their openers were kept in check by the Indian bowlers, who bowled a really disciplined line. They squeezed the pressure and then the dam burst and the wickets came. There was a huge collapse in the middle and the game was over before it was over."

  8. The biggest game...

    BBC Monitoring's Vikas Pandey: "More proof that Indians are treating this match like a World Cup final. Hashtag #RealFinal is now trending on Twitter."

  9. Player reaction

    Virat Kohli on his man of the match award: "It's probably one of the biggest honours I've ever had in my career.

    "A real important game for us to kick off the World Cup. It's a high pressure game against Pakistan, so it's huge to get a win.

    "Expectations are going to be there when you do well for your country and I like it and the pressure."

  10. Post update

    Geoffrey Boycott

    Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

    "The crowd were 90% in favour of India and it was a canter for their side. Pakistan didn't have the firepower in spin or seam to stop India getting runs. Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli found it easy to score runs - they got to 150 without breaking sweat. Then the fireworks came from Suresh Raina, who is a great talent, he is amazing and he smashes it everywhere."

    Former Australia coach on BBC Test Match Special

    "India won in a manner which shows they were well prepared for this game. They got their head around which was the right line-up to field on this pitch at Adelaide. The two spinners did an excellent job and the wickets were shared between the group."

  14. India beat Pakistan by 76 runs

    Sohail Khan c Yadav b M Sharma 7 (Pak 224)

    It's all over and India have won by 76 runs. Sohail Khan is the last man to go as he hits one high in the air and Yadav takes a simple catch at mid-on.

  15. Pak 220-9 (Shami 4-35 off 9 overs)

    Had Misbah got to a century, unbelievably it would have been his first in 157 ODIs. His highest score is 96 not out in all that time. Mohammad Irfan is last man in for Pakistan.

  16. Post update

    Tim Nielsen

    Former Australia coach on BBC Test Match Special

    "The bowler and captain were clear in what they wanted to do. They have shown a lot of confidence in themselves, Shami came round the wicket and dug it in short and the ball hurried onto Misbah and looped to mid-on. Good execution from the bowling group."

  17. WICKET

    Misbah c Rahane b Shami 76 (Pak 220-9)

    Sadly for Pakistan the one Misbah they do have is finally out. He goes for a pull shot from a short ball from Shami, but swats it to wide mid-on where Rahane snaffles it. Almost done here.

    Ilyas Najib: If only Pakistan had 11 Misbah's in their line-up.

  19. Pak 220-8 (target 301)

    Sohail Khan keeps his mouth shut after that little episode and lets his bat do the talking with a clubbed pull for four off Yadav. That's Yadav done for the day with figures of 2-50.

  20. Post update

    Tim Nielsen

    Former Australia coach on BBC Test Match Special

    "I think there must have been a few words between Kohli and the batsman. At the start of Kohli's innings, Sohail Khan got right in Virat's face so maybe he was returning the favour."

  21. Pak 215-8 (need 86 to win off 36 balls)

    Seems to be getting heated out there despite the game being dead as a contest. Sohail Khan seems to have something to say for himself and then Virat Kohli gets the crowd going by waving his hands in the air. Misbah, meanwhile, isn't bothered by all that and just decides to hit Jadeja for three consecutive fours to move to 76.

    Adil Shahzeb from BBC Urdu in Adelaide: Just came out for some fresh air - saw tens of Pakistani fans leaving Adelaide Oval. It seems very difficult now, but Misbah can still perform.

  23. Pak 203-8 (Target 301)

    Mohit Sharma almost accounted for Yasir the ball before as a pull shot went out to deep square leg. Shami came running in to try and grab it, but couldn't quite cling on with his dive. Sohail Khan is the new man in at 10.

  24. Post update

    Tim Nielsen

    Former Australia coach on BBC Test Match Special

    "He hit that one firmly - it was right out of the middle of the bat without the elevation he was looking for and Yadav took the catch right in front of the India logo on his shirt."

  25. WICKET

    Yasir c Yadav b M Sharma 13 (Pak 203-8)

    Eighth wicket down for Pakistan as Yasir Shah tries to smash Mohit Sharma past mid-on. He doesn't get it wide enough though and Yadav takes the simple catch without having to move an inch.


    Suresh Raina and Mohit Sharma
  26. Post update

    Tim Nielsen

    Former Australia coach on BBC Test Match Special

    "Ashwin has been excellent tonight, he's changed his pace nicely. It's usual for a spinner to up their pace, but Ashwin has done nicely because he's taken pace off the ball. He's got the ball to grip, has taken a wicket and delivered three maidens. India will be very happy about that."

  27. Pak 200-7 (Target 301)

    Yasir Shah opens his boundary account as he fetches one from outside off stump and slog sweeps Ashwin for four. Could be some vital fantasy team points up for grabs here in the closing overs. Sadly the real contest in the middle is going down a somewhat predictable path to an India win.

  28. Pak 196-7 (need 105 to win off 54 balls)

    Pakistan will want to finish strong here with an eye on the net run rate in Pool B. They'll finish some way short of victory today, but in the long-term they'll be conscious not to suffer a drubbing. Yadav completes a ninth over with just two runs from it.

  29. Post update

    Geoffrey Boycott

    Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

    "India's batting was very controlled, patient and solid. It was only in the last few overs that they lost a few wickets. It's been a good, solid performance by India. It's Pakistan who need to improve a bit."

  30. Scorecard update

    Pakistan 194-7 (40 overs) - target 301

    Batsmen: Misbah 63*, Yasir 6*

    Fall of wickets: 11-1 (Younus 6), 79-2 (Haris 36), 102-3 (Shehzad 47), 102-4 (Sohaib), 103-5 (Akmal 0), 149-6 (Afridi 22), 154-7 (Wahab 4)

    Bowling figures: Yadav 8-0-43-2, Shami 8-0-35-3, Mohit Sharma 7-0-28-0, Raina 1-0-6-0, Ashwin 7-3-37-1, Jadeja 9-0-44-1

  31. Pak 194-7 (Misbah 63, Yasir 6)

    Misbah picks up four more with a neat reverse sweep off Jadeja. In to the 60s now, but the Pakistan captain takes a wild swing at the final delivery of the over. Head high in the air, no contact with the ball and through to the keeper.

  32. What you may have missed...

    If you've just joining us this morning, let us fill you in:

    South Africa, one of the pre-tournament favourites to lift the World Cup, beat Zimbabwe by 62 runs in Hamilton in Pool B.

    They defended a total of 339-4 which featured an ODI record fifth-wicket stand of 256 between David Miller (138 off 92 balls) and JP Duminy (115 off 100).

    In Adelaide, and also in Pool B, defending champions India are closing in on victory over neighbours and rivals Pakistan...

    Imran Tahir
  33. Pak 188-7 (Yadav 8-0-43-2)

    For the first time today, there's a noticeable hush in the Adelaide Oval crowd. A sign that the fizz has gone well and truly out of the contest. Umesh Yadav continues his steady display with the ball, conceding just four singles.

  34. Post update

    Geoffrey Boycott

    Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

    "The Pakistan batting collapsed too easily. They were doing reasonably well but then they suddenly lost concentration and discipline. The bowling could be better too. Without raising a gallop, India were allowed to hit the ball into gaps for ones and twos."

  35. Pak 184-7 (need 117 to win off 72 balls)

    Jadeja back on and in to his eighth over. Little of note to report as the game goes through the motions somewhat.

  36. Post update

    Jonathan Agnew

    BBC Test Match Special in Adelaide

    "There's not quite a feel of celebration about Misbah's half-century like there was when Virat Kohli reached his 100. But while there's Misbah, there's hope I suppose."

  37. Pak 181-7 (Misbah 55, Yasir 2)

    Shami comes in for some punishment from Misbah this time, who hammers four down the ground and then takes a couple to bring up his 50. A muted celebration, but he's reached the landmark off 55 balls with four fours and a six. Again, he shows his strength off his legs with another four from a full toss.

  38. 'Better than winning the World Cup'

    BBC Monitoring's Vikas Pandey: Fireworks are getting louder in Delhi, and Twitter and Facebook have exploded with comments. For the enthusiastic Indian fan, Dhoni's men have already won the match. I can sense that people are getting ready for celebrations on Delhi's streets. Just heard this comment: 'Winning against Pakistan is as good as winning the World Cup.'

  39. Pak 169-7 (Misbah 44, Yasir 1)

    Misbah's not done yet as he slog-sweeps Ashwin for six in defiant fashion. Stands and admires his shot afterwards. He turns down a single next ball though, presumably to protect his new partner Yasir Shah. A couple more singles before Misbah cuts a short and wide one away for four more.

    "The Pakistan supporters are leaving quite quickly now. It's as though someone has blown a whistle and said 'everyone out, we're going home'."

  41. Pak 154-7 (target 301)

    A section of seats in the Adelaide Oval have been rapidly vacated after that. The India fans in the crowd take pleasure in waving them goodbye.

  42. WICKET

    Wahab c Dhoni b Shami 4 (Pak 154-7)

    Two go in an over for Pakistan and they've lost 5-22 in this innings. Wahab Riaz's stay lasts just two balls. The first was a boundary, the second an edge through to a gleeful India captain.

    "That's a good catch, he was running backwards and he took it well. The height was marginally OK and Shahid Afridi marches off. For a man with his power, he'll be cross he didn't put that ball away."

  44. WICKET

    Afridi c Kohli b Shami 22 (Pak 149-6)

    Boom Boom Afridi takes a big swing at a full toss from Shami and it's high in to the air out to point. Kohli takes the catch running round and the all-rounder has to go. Umpires pause for a second to see if the ball is above waist height, but they're happy it's legal.


  45. Post update

    BBC Test Match Special in Adelaide

    "Misbah, the old war horse, is showing his experience. And there's a little more noise from the Pakistan quarters as a result of those boundaries."

  46. Pak 149-5 (Target 301)

    Is this the start of the Pakistan counter-attack? Misbah backs away and smashes Yadav for four through the covers. He picks up another boundary as he whips a full toss off his legs. The public address system announces the crowd is more than 41,500. And they've made some noise it's fair to say.

    India fans
  47. Pak 139-5 (Misbah 21, Afridi 21)

    I remember Franklyn Stephenson in the latter part of his career, playing for Sussex in that classic Natwest final against Warwickshire in 1993. Back in Adelaide, more shuffling of the pack from Dhoni with his bowlers sees Mohammed Shami back on. Pakistan meanwhile choose to take the batting powerplay early. Misbah and Afridi can't force the issue though as the required rate hovers around nine-and-a-half an over. With that, it's time for drinks.

  48. Post update

    Jonathan Agnew

    BBC Test Match Special in Adelaide

    "The best exponent of the slower ball I've seen was Franklyn Stephenson. He'd come bounding in all arms and legs and with a big smile and the ball wouldn't arrive. He had possibly the biggest smile of anybody I've ever known, a lovely man. Chris Cairns had a good slower ball too."

  49. Pak 137-5 (need 164 to win off 108 balls)

    Jadeja comes on to replace Ashwin as Dhoni continues this trial by spin from the Northern End. Just three runs off the over and the required rate continues to climb.

  50. Pak 134-5 (req rate 8.78)

    The figure of former England coach Duncan Fletcher is seen on television screens looking content in the India changing room. He's in the background behind Ravi Shastri, the man who has assumed more front-of-house coaching duties in the last year or so. His influence has certainly given India an added dimension. Back on the field, Mohit Sharma continues to be precise, conceding just two runs.

  51. Post update

    Jonathan Agnew

    BBC Test Match Special in Adelaide

    "Pakistan's chances are one in a hundred now. It does appear to be India's game. Incidentally, this ground is lovely. It's the first time I've seen it under lights since it's been developed. They've done a great job - you'd be happy to watch all of your cricket here."

  53. Pak 132-5 (need 169 to win off 120 balls)

    Ashwin continues to weave his web of spin, getting plenty of turn and bounce out of this pitch. Afridi goes down on one leg and sweeps hard to the square leg boundary for four to keep things moving just a touch.

  54. Pak 124-5 (Misbah 15, Afridi 13)

    Mohit Sharma comes on as MS Dhoni mixes up his bowlers here to keep Pakistan guessing. Good stuff from the seam bowler, who varies his pace up and keeps a tight line.

    Rakesh Pradhan: It's safe to say now which Pakistan has turned up today. From the brilliance to disaster in a few overs.

    Juxtaposed: It is important for cricket in the subcontinent that Pakistan lose this match with their honour intact. Take it to over 49.

  56. Pak 119-5 (Target 301)

    Boom from Boom Boom! Afridi wants to take this on now for Pakistan and hammers Jadeja for a maximum over square leg. Four singles added as well for 10 off the over.

  59. Start the party?

    BBC Monitoring's Vikas Pandey: "I can hear loud firecrackers with every Pakistani wicket.

    "This is just in Delhi, but TVs show that scenes are similar in other cities.

    "Premature celebrations? Yes, but that's what pressure does to fans in India and Pakistan."

  60. Pak 109-5 (need 192 to win off 144 balls)

    As ever Marc, many thanks for your sterling efforts. Well, what a turnaround. Two overs ago, this game was finely in the balance. Now, it's well and truly in India's hands. Pakistan captain Misbah looks shell-shocked by events. It's him and the other "senior citizen" Afridi, as Harsha Bhogle calls them, who have to rebuild here.

    Who do you fancy to win this match now? I'd have India as very slight favourites purely because they have the runs on the board. Pakistan need to go at more than seven an over to win the game. Just three more singles chipped from the target.

  74. Pak 98-2 (target 301)

    Ah... perhaps MS Dhoni does know about Misbah's fine record against off-spin because he's brought paceman Umesh Yadav into the attack. Television cameras pan to a nervous-looking Pakistan players' balcony. They know that so much depends on their skipper. Shehzad is playing plenty of shots now and he aims a wild swish outside off stump which gets the majority of the crowd excitable.

  76. Pak 97-2 (Shehzad 44, Misbah 4)

    Misbah averages 118.3 against off-spin in the last 10 years. I wonder if MS Dhoni realises this with slow bowling on from both ends? Ravi Jadeja, to be fair, is of the left-arm variety but Pakistan seem happy to milk the bowling and take another five runs.

  78. Pak 92-2 (target 301)

    Pakistan skipper Misbah is the new man to the crease and he's very much needed with his side suffering a touch of the jitters. Ahmed Shehzed is going well though, hitting successive boundaries to knock Ashwin out of his stride. The second one was a big heave over the top and a signal of the opener's intent.

    "Good bit of work from Dhoni. The one-bounce throw came in from point and with the dive, Dhoni flicked it off his gloves straight on to the stumps. Despite the big dive, the bat has almost bounced in the air despite it being over the line."

    Pak 93-2

    Oh.. drama! India think they've got another wicket when Ahmed Shehzed is caught up in a running-between-the-wickets mishap, but he gets back just in time despite good work from Umesh Yadav in the deep and then wicketkeeper MS Dhoni.

  82. WICKET

    Haris c Raina b Ashwin 36 (Pak 79-2)

    The noise which greets this wicket is almost deafening. Pakistan looked to be gaining control, but Ravichandran Ashwin strikes an important blow when he spins one away from the left-handed Haris Sohail who pokes out his bat and Suresh Raina takes a straightforward catch at first slip.


    Haris Sohail
  83. Pak 72-1 (Shehzad 30, Haris 36)

    Slow bowling from both ends now, with Ravindra Jadeja's left-arm darts being employed. Haris Sohail trades his helmet for a hat and he and his batting partner manipulate the strike with four singles and a boundary. Ticking along nicely.

  85. Pak 72-1 (target 301)

    There's a bit of excitement brewing in the Pakistani-populated part of the ground. Is this the day they finally beat India in a World Cup match? Another over from Ashwin brings five singles. Drinks.

  86. South Africa beat Zimbabwe by 62 runs

    South Africa captain AB de Villiers: "We are happy with a winning start. Zimbabwe played some really good cricket and they put us under a lot of pressure, especially with the ball in the opening 15 overs."

    Ilyas Najib: The Indian bowling attack looks as average as the Pakistani attack did, we could be in for a tight finish I feel.

  88. Pak 67-1 (Mohit 5-0-21-0)

    The Adelaide Oval's floodlights are burning brightly now as they take over from the natural light. It all adds to this sense of occasion which is emanating from every single feature of this match. It couldn't be more handily poised, with Ahmed Shehzad and Haris Sohail bringing up their half-century partnership after that early loss of Younus Khan. Shehzad appears to have decided to take on the bowling as he plunders four through mid-off then bags a couple through a similar area.

    "This is based purely on the anecdotal evidence of my own eyes, but I'd say that there are a lot more women here than your average cricket match. There are certainly more prams and small children than I've seen before. It's a family event, more evidence that rivalry doesn't have to mean hostility."

  90. Pak 58-1 (Shehzad 20, Haris 25)

    The wily Ravichandran Ashwin is summoned by MS Dhoni, and five dots are followed by a single. A very quick over.

  91. Pak 57-1 (target 301)

    Ahmed Shehzad has kept his powder dry until now... and the blue touch paper is lit when he comes down the track to Mohit Sharma and biffs him through mid-wicket for four. The bowler responds with a pacey yorker which is inches away from rearranging the dancing batsman's timbers. Five more taken from the target.

  92. Where is Chacha?

    BBC Monitoring's Vikas Pandey: "Chacha Cricket (11 overs) may be missing in Adelaide, but his Indian counterpart Sudhir Kumar Chaudhary can certainly be seen in his well-known painted avatar.

    "He is known for painting his body in the colours of the Indian flag and travelling around the world to support India."

  93. South Africa beat Zimbabwe by 62 runs

    South Africa's David Miller, who rescued his side with 138 off 92 balls: "I just needed to construct a partnership with someone, and JP Duminy was the man today. It was tough up front and a bit slow initially, but it definitely eased up towards the end.

    "JP and I kept encouraging each other along the way and we knew how important this partnership was to the team. There are a lot of positives I can take in how I constructed this innings, especially when rotating the strike with the spinners on. I've been working hard on that part of my game."

  94. Pak 53-1 (required run-rate: 6.52)

    Part-time off-spin from Suresh Raina now as MS Dhoni tries to sneak through a couple of cheeky overs. Some half-trackers are belted into the outfield for ones and twos. Six from the over.

I just did a quick internet search, and his occupation is described as 'cricket fan and entertainer'. Wow... I want that job title. The stats say that, at this stage, India were a couple of runs better off. But only a couple. Mohit Sharma's latest over goes for just one.

  98. Pak 46-1 (Shehzad 10, Haris 23)

    India appear to be wise to Haris Sohail's tendency for classical cover drives because they've packed four fielders into an arc within the circle. Both the left-hander and his right-handed opening partner refuse to go aerial for now and milk a couple of singles into gaps.

  103. South Africa beat Zimbabwe by 62 runs

    Zimbabwe 277 all out

    All over in Hamilton! Zimbabwe huffed and puffed in a credible display, but ultimately South Africa's quality with both bat and ball shone through.

    Unfancied Zimbabwe had their illustrious opponents rattled at 83-4, before David Miller (138*) and JP Duminy (115*) shared a record fifth-wicket stand of 256 in a total of 339-4.

    Zimbabwe made an encouraging start to their chase through Chamu Chibhabha and Hamilton Masakadza, who took them to 137-1. However, they ran out of steam and lost a flurry of wickets in the final 15 overs.

    South Africa
  104. Pak 44-1 (required run-rate: 6.11)

    What is it about left-handed batsmen? They tend to be far more elegant than their right-handed equivalents, don't they? Haris Sohail is playing some stonking drives through the off side. Ahmed Shehzad gets in on the act too, hooking Mo Shami for four. That seems to impress a fella dressed as the Incredible Hulk in the crowd. Or is it the real David Banner? We'll never know underneath that mask.

  105. Pak 39-1 (Shehzad 6, Haris 21)

    There are some wholehearted bowlers in this India line-up. Mohit Sharma is in the mould of Mo Shami as he bursts to the crease and, front on, delivers a heavy ball. The right-arm paceman, who is playing only his 13th ODI, begins with a no-ball and the subsequent free hit is unceremoniously smashed for two by Haris Sohail, who ends the over with a silky cover drive which brings another couple.

    "Pakistan kept themselves in the contest by restricting India to 5-27 off the last five overs of their innings. That certainly got their tales up and has shown in the positive start they've made in this run chase."

  107. Pak 34-1 (target 301)

    There's a lot to like about Haris Sohail. Standing upright and back in his crease, he is middling some gorgeous strokes through the off side. He has a very classical technique. Mo Shami is steaming in from round the wicket and he is getting the white ball to nip past the outside edge every now and again. And there's drama at the end of the over when a mix up in the field prevents Sohail being run out. Six from the over.

  108. More what you may have missed...

    In Hamilton, South Africa are closing in on victory over Zimbabwe, although it's not been as straightforward as you might think.

    David Miller's unbeaten 138 off 92 balls and JP Duminy's 115 not out - in an ODI fifth-wicket record stand of 256 - propelled the Proteas to 339-4. Zimbabwe were 191-2 before Hamilton Masakadza's departure for 80 signalled the beginning of the end of their hopes.


  109. What you may have missed...

    Just woken up? Heavy night? Let us fill you in...

    Pakistan have just set about chasing 301 to beat India in the World Cup for the first time.

    The defending champions' 301-7 in Adelaide featured a measured 107 from Virat Kohli, a rather more explosive 74 from Suresh Raina and Shikhar Dhawan's occasionally dashing 73. Sohail Khan took 5-55 as Pakistan restricted India brilliantly late on.


  110. Pak 28-1 (Shehzad 5, Sohail 14)

    The green and white Pakistani flags flutter as the sun sets on a scorching Adelaide day. Haris Sohail cuts Umesh Yadav past backward point for four. If anything this pitch appears to have quickened up as another bouncer is called for wide when it's taken above his head by MS Dhoni. Throw in two more boundaries and Pakistan are flying.

  111. How's stat?!

    Andrew Samson

    BBC Test Match Special statistician

    "Seven bowlers took five wickets on their World Cup debut before this tournament. There have been three already in this one: England's Steven Finn, Australia's Mitchell Marsh and Pakistan's Sohail Khan."

    Sohail Khan
  112. Pak 14-1 (target 301)

    Quality fast bowling from Mohammed Shami, who is steaming in and finding plenty of lift on a pretty flat track. He'd get more movement out of the M6. Haris Sohail is the new batsman to the crease, so Pakistan retain a left-right combination. Just three runs and, more importantly, a wicket in the over.

    "Good fast bowling. It looks like Mohammed Shami is getting his pace up. It caught Younus between a couple of options and hit the gloves for an easy catch as it bounced up in the air."

  114. WICKET

    Younus c Dhoni b Shami 6 (Pak 11-1)

    Younus Khan, he of 261 ODI caps, is bounced out by Mohammed Shami. The Indian quick gets one to rear up at the opener and a top edge flies to MS Dhoni behind the stumps. The crowd goes wild. Most of it, anyway.


    Younus Khan
  115. Pak 11-0 (Shehzad 4, Younus 6)

    First boundary of this Pakistan reply as Younus Khan leg glances an over-pitched delivery from Umesh Yadav with some exquisite timing. Ahmed Shehzad picks up a neat couple of runs with a similar stroke of his own.

  117. Pak 4-0 (Shehzad 2, Younus 1)

    The slightly quicker and skiddier Mohammed Shami steams in for the second over and he smashes one into Ahmed Shehzad's ribs. Don't rub it, Ahmed! Rather like India before them, the Pakistani's batsmen are happy to take it nice and steady early on. Just two from the over.

  119. Pak 2-0 (target 301)

    Umesh Yadav, a stocky seam bowler with 49 ODI wickets to his name, reduces Pakistan's target with the first ball of the reply when he sends down a leg-side bouncer. Ahmed Shehzad and Younus Khan are the two opening batsmen, with the latter being beaten on the ouside edge by one which nips away. Keep them there.

    "You never know with Pakistan - it depends on which side of the bed they have got out of. They don't even know themselves sometimes. As a player, I was always wary of them... they have always had wonderfully gifted players. Their problem has been finding a leader who harnesses it. Imran did that and Misbah is in the same mould."

  122. Post update

    Some great work late on by Pakistan as they restricted India to 27-5 off the last five overs of that innings. A total of 350 was not beyond the realms of possibility with India 273-2 at one stage.

    So what lies in store? With South Africa closing in on victory over Zimbabwe in Hamilton, can a team batting second finally win a game at this World Cup...?

  123. South Africa v Zimbabwe

    Zimbabwe 228-5 (39 overs) - target 340

    Moments after the drinks break, South Africa coach Russ Domingo told the television coverage that nabbing wickets in the powerplay would be key to the outcome of this match. And so far he is being proved right.

    Zimbabwe's fate has taken a dramatic turn for the worse. Brendan Taylor went straight after the refreshments with a lazy slog, then Sean Williams fell moments later courtesy of a top edge. Zimbabwe need 112 from 66 balls.

    Zimbabwe 214-3 (36 overs) - target 340

    Earlier (see 06:49) we asked how long the Zimbabwean partnership Chamu Chibhabha and Hamilton Masakadza would be a thorn in the side of South Africa. Not for long as it turned out. Opener Chibhabha (64) walked moments later after hitting a straight drive into the outstretched hand of JP Duminy on the rope.

    However, the swashbuckling Masakadza ploughed on, surviving a run-out review, before finally scooping to Hashim Amla for 80. Brendan Taylor is taking up the challenge, though, smashing a succession of boundaries as Zimbabwe pass the 200 mark. Now they need 126 off 84 balls.
