India put on another clinical show as the Men in Blue beat their arch rivals Pakistan by 89 runs via DLS method. Man of the Match was Rohit Sharma for his brilliant 140-run knock.
Yes, we agree with you Ayaz Memon!
#INDvPAK A great cricket rivalry no doubt, but a no-contest today. Stands emptied out quickly — much before the rain arrived — as Pak fans came to terms with the inevitable outcome pic.twitter.com/EPeVvOSCgu— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) June 16, 2019
Pakistani fans wanting to shift to India because of the match! now who could have thought about that?
Shifting to India, I swear they always nail it in every section whether it is batting or bowling. What an amazing innings they have given. Kholi is a great captain with a strong team. Congratulations India.— Aleena. ðµð° (@aleenarathore) June 16, 2019
Rip team Pakistan.#INDvPAK#PAKvIND
Rain has once again interrupted play and as things stand India will win the match by 86 runs as per DLS method.
Vijay Shankar pushes Pakistan further towards defeat! Clean bowls Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed. Pakistan six wickets down
All of us cricket fans were in for a treat today. Perhaps the greatest rivalry of the modern times.
Sir Jadeja is at it! On the field as well on Twiiter.
Pakistan is staring at defeat and Pakistan fans can't control their anger on social media. Read this point of view from an angry Pakistani fan.
You dont have to be a genius to know #Pak cant chase. We ve never been good at chasing. I wudnt mind if #Ind had won the toss & we lost but I just cant forgive @SarfarazA_54 for bowling first after winning the toss. Captain Bcoz of ur stupid decision we lost! #INDvPAK #CWC19— TaHa Khan (@tahakhan_mtk) June 16, 2019
Hardik Pandya breaks Pakistan's back after Kuldeep Yadav's twin strikes and the memes start pouring in. The one below surely cracked us up.
Kuldeep Yadav is red hot! Sends both the set batsman in back-to-back overs.
Kuldeep Yadav to the rescue! The spinner waeves his magic to break the partnership and sends back Babar Azam. Pakistan 2 down
Something about Fakhar Zaman and him playing against India. The stylish batsman brings up his fifty as Pakistan builds chase.
Fakhar Gets His Fifty With a Sixxx, Is He Recreating the Magic Which He Did In CT17? ð#INDvPAK— ArunachalaM (@ArunBuddyyAP) June 16, 2019
Bhuvneshwar Kumar was looking in great rhythm before pulling his hamstring and walking off the ground mid-over. Worrying signs for Team India for the rest of the World Cup.

Virat Kohli for sure has the best reactions on the field.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar walks off holding his hamstring after bowling four brilliant balls, Vijay Shankar then comes in to complete the over and takes a wicket off his first ball. What a substitution by Virat Kohli!
This was the reason for Rohit Sharma's splendid 140-run knock, his lucky charm, Ritika Sajdeh is at the ground,
And while Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli take India to 336 in 50 overs, Pakistan captain Sarfaraz is waiting to take a quick nap.
Was Virat Kohli out? The replays suggest he was not.
As the play resumes after a brief stoppage due to rain, take a look at this picture of three batting greats in the frame.
Virat Kohli completes 11,000 ODI runs, fastest to reach the milestone.
Virat Kohli pushes the accelerator as he reaches yet another half century!
Vacancy for Pakistan fielding coach's job is now open.
Rohit Sharma walks back after a brilliant century, laying the platform for Hardik Pandya to come in and go berserk.
Twitter is going crazy with memes.. This one suggesting there will be lot of TV sets broken in Pakistan if their team loses the match.
Rohit Sharma shows his class and 'Talent'. Scores his first 100 hundred runs off the match in 85 balls. How many balls will it take for him to get to 200? Any guesses?
Now this is a royal entry into the cricket ground by a Pakistani fan.
KL Rahul walks back after a well made half century
Finally a wicket!— Ramsha Khan (@pot_kuri) June 16, 2019
Big man King Kohli comes in
If Pakistan doesn't have a plan for him. Its clear that brain meltdown occurred and they have just decided to let 16th June pass!#INDvPAK
Meanwhile in Manchester....
KL Rahul brings up his half century with a six off Shoaib Malik.
Sarfaraz Khan and Team Pakistan have clearly not been able to benefit after winning the toss and electing to bowl first.
Won the toss and elected to bowl and can't get wicket in 17 overs not what Pakistan wanted. Again the fielding is below par is the reason of not geting early wickets. Yoh put pressure on batsman thtough good fielding stop that 1s and 2s is crucial. #CWC19 #INDvPAK— Asfand Ali (@asfandali100) June 16, 2019
Rohit Sharma brings up his 50 with a four and a six! Making Pakistani fans wanting Rohit Sharma to play for their team as well.
Fakhar Zaman threw at the wrong end and gave Rohit Shrma, who was run-out for all money, a huge reprieve!
Rohit Sharma is off the blocks and KL Rahul is off to a cautious start.
Here is an open letter for Army Man MS Dhoni for the India vs Pakistan match. Watch video.
Will Rohit Sharma score his 4th ODI 200 today?
