The highly anticipated match between arch rivals India and Pakistan in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 turned out to be a one-sided contest with Indian openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul posting a partnership in excess of 100 runs. Rohit Sharma hit a brilliant 140 of just 113 balls and Virat Kohli played an innings of 77 runs to help India post 336/5 on the board.
This was India's highest total against Pakistan in the ODIs in the world cups. In reply, Pakistan started well as Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman posted 104 runs partnership. However, quick wickets by Kuldeep Yadav and Hardik Pandya led to a middle order collapse and Pakistan lost the match by 89 runs through DLS method. Rohit Sharma was awarded the Player of the Match for his splendid effort with the bat.
