World Cup 2019: India vs Pakistan Live score


India’s vice-captain Rohit Sharma, K.L. Rahul steal the show, get India off to perfect start against Pakistan.

The 32-year old was lucky to survive a run-out chance in the 11th over when a hesitation between him and Rahul saw Rohit way out of his crease, but Shadab Khan did superbly well to pick up the ball one-hand but got the direction of the throw wrong.

Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed won the toss and asked India to bat first in their World Cup group stage encounter at the Old Trafford on Sunday.

India brought in Vijay Shankar for the injured Shikhar Dhawan, while Pakistan has brought back spinners Shadab Khan and Imad Wasim in place of Shaheen Afridi and Asif Ali.

Following are the India’s and Pakistan’s playing XI:

India- Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, MS Dhoni (wk), Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar.
