The rain did eventually arrive to bring significant disruption to the Pakistan innings, restricting them to 40 overs as they ended on 212 for 6, with India claiming an 89-run victory via the DLS method. He said, "It has always been a fantastic contest".

Victory in this rain-curtailed clash saw India, who have now won all seven of their World Cup matches against Pakistan, remain unbeaten after four pool games at this year's edition.

Opener Sharma played the key innings in India's 336 for five, a total which proved well beyond their opponents, but declined to put it at the top of his list of centuries.

Rain gods disrupted India's march towards a third win with Pakistan reeling at 166 for six in 35 overs.

"We know the task is tough and we have to win all our matches so we have no margin of error", said Sarfaraz, whose team opened the World Cup with a defeat against West Indies.

Pakistan have been lambasted over one specific aspect of a poor fielding display as they crashed to another demoralising defeat at the Cricket World.

Pandya then ripped the heart out of Pakistan's middle order, dismissing Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik in successive deliveries as the wheels came off Pakistan's chase in a three-over phase when they lost four wickets for 12 runs.

Pakistan left-arm quick Mohammad Amir was his side's only threat with three for 47 despite two early warnings for running on the pitch.

The Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed that he took the right call by going to bowl first in the high voltage match against India in Old Trafford on Sunday. 'We're here to win - whether it's Australia, South Africa, England or Pakistan - for us it doesn't matter. Far too often the fast bowlers dropped short and the elegant right-hander was in superb touch as he scored a brilliant 140 off just 113 balls. It was Sharma's 24th ODI century.
