Bumrah is brought into the attack and despite wild slogs and swings Shadab Khan isn’t able to strike it from the middle of the bat.

He generally keeps it wide of Wasim and Shadab, the latter hits one in the over over the infield over cover point for another single. Six runs from it. Pakistan need 130 off 24 balls.
- 23:39 (IST)It might be a forgone conclusion for one and all but we do have a game on our hands. Players have taken the field. Yuzvendra Chahal will start the proceeding after the break. Nothing but Net run rate to play for now.
- 23:36 (IST)Alright, we will have a restart. It will be a 40-over contest and Pakistan’s revised target will be 302, which essentially means they will require 136 off 30 balls.
- Saj Sadiq, Freelance cricket writer at Old Trafford 23:35 (IST)What a farcical end to this match. The ICC not helping themselves.Pakistan need 136 runs off 5 overs. New followers of cricket must be thinking what is going on.The stadium is now almost empty and this match will end as a bit of a joke
- Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist at Old Trafford 23:35 (IST)Would you believe it… restart in 8 minutes. Match reduced to 40 overs. Pakistan’s target is 302. Basically they need 136 runs off 5 overs. Cricket is stupid.

If there is no more play India will by 86 runs (DLS)
The rain is falling steadily, the covers are on and the umbrellas are up for those fans who have stayed back.
Pakistan’s 2019 World Cup is going the same way as their 1992 World Cup campaign as far as results are concerned. This lot Cornered Tigers?, no, more like Cornered Tabby Cats
- 22:52 (IST)
Miserable weather and a miserable day for Pakistan. This game is done and dusted as far as they are concerned. Grey skies above and grey skies in Pakistan cricket as they are about to lose their 15th ODI in the last 19 matches. Pakistan fans heading for the exits as the rain continues to fall.

OUT! Sarfaraz Ahmed was looking to smash it through the offside, trying to infuse some energy into the chase, gets an inside edge to drag it back on to his leg stump. Didn’t look a very good shot to start with. Didn’t end well for him as well. India closing in on 7-0.
Sarfaraz Ahmed b Vijay 12(30)
- 22:07 (IST)
OUT! Two wickets in two balls from Hardik Pandya. Shoaib Malik comes into bat and is dismissed for a golden duck. Hardik bends his back and gets some extra bounce of length outside off. Malik with a tame push on the offside, is surprised by the extra zip, chopping it onto his stumps. This is turning out to be procession for Pakistan.
Shoaib Malik b Hardik Pandya 0(1)
- 22:04 (IST)
OUT! India all over Pakistan now! Hardik Pandya bowls on length on leg stump and Hafeez glances off his pads, not bothering to keep it down, and ends up losing his wicket as the ball carries straight to backward square leg who runs in a few yards to snaffle the catch. Pakistan have lost now three in quick time.
Hafeez c Shankar b Hardik Pandya 9(7)
- 21:57 (IST)
OUT! More joy for Kuldeep and India. Fakhar Zaman departs. Flighted leg break just a drifting down leg side, Zaman looks to paddle it around the corner with a sweep. He ends up skewing it off the top edge and his spin twin Yuzvendra Chahal pouching the simplest of catches.
Fakhar Zaman c Chahal b Kuldeep Yadav 62(75)
- 21:51 (IST)
BOWLED’EM! Kuldeep Yadav with a massive breakthrough for India. Just when his team needed, the wrist-spinner has responded on demand. Tossed up leg-spinner, outside off stump on length, that turns into Babar big time. He prods looking to push the ball towards the offside, leaving some gap between bat and pad, and the ball sneaks through it. Perhaps got an inside edge. The bails fly and the majority crowd at Old Trafford erupts.
Babar Azam b Kuldeep Yadav 48(57)

FIFTY! Fakhar Zaman bends on his knee and slog sweeps it just over deep mid wicket fence. For a moment it felt the ball wouldn’t carry all the way and the fielders in the deep were interested. With that six he brings his first half-century in the tournament.
- 20:26 (IST)
OUT! WOAH! What a start for Vijay Shankar! His first delivery in the World Cup game, against Pakistan and he has struck! This is simply incredible. Pitched on the leg stump and perhaps a straightened a little, Imam misses the flick and is given out. He ponders for a referral but doesn’t opt for it after speaking to Fakhar Zaman! India have a breakthrough.
Imam lbw b Shankar 7(18)
- 19:28 (IST)
After 50 overs,India 336/5 ( Vijay Shankar 15 , Kedar Jadhav 9)Caught and bowled opportunity of Shankar on first ball for Amir but it was a tough chance and he parried it away. Amir got Jadhav to edge the next one but it fell short of the keeper. A four for Shankar through deep extra-cover. Nine runs from last over. Pakistan need 337 to win.
- 19:14 (IST)
OUT! Kohli c Sarfaraz b Amir 77(65)Kohli might have dominated the battle but Amir eventually gets his wicket. A quick bouncer which became big on Kohli who went with the pull shot but was never in control as the faint edge went to the keeper.
- 18:17 (IST)
It’s drizzling in Manchester and that has resulted into a break. Players have gone off the field with India on 305/4 in 46.4 overs.
- 18:07 (IST)
OUT! Dhoni c Sarfaraz b Amir 1(2)Dhoni wanted to attack from the start but that’s not his style. The ball was angled across him as he went for a shot down the ground but ended up edging it to the keeper.
- 18:01 (IST)
OUT! Hardik Pandya c Babar Azam b Amir 26(19) Pandya brought out the helicopter shot but he didn’t get the distance behind the shot. Gets caught at long on by Azam.
