India trounces Pakistan in ICC Champions Trophy; wins by 124 runs

Teammates congratulate India's Ravindra Jadeja, third left, for taking a catch to dismiss Pakistan's Shoaib Malik during the ICC Champions Trophy match between India and Pakistan at Edgbaston in Birmingham, England, Sunday, June 4, 2017.

India piled on 319 for three in their Champions Trophy opener against Pakistan, who turned in a ragged first-innings performance at Edgbaston.

As Pakistan batting progressed, there was another interruption of the rain which then reduced match to 41 overs, the revised target was 289.

Only opener Azhar Ali (50) seemed to have some clue on how to deal with the bowling while the rest of the batting was none too impressive.

Umesh Yadav, although blundering numerous times in the field, took three wickets thanks to his speed.

She also said she disagreed with the state's decision to deny phone access to Arthur's attorneys during the lethal injection. The long-running legal saga began on February 1, 1982, in the north Alabama town of Muscle Shoals along the Tennessee River.

But Yuvraj nearly went past him with his batting, with the kind of shots that he played.

The revolution in Indian fielding began with former player Mohammad Kaif, watching the grades of fielding by Pakistani team, he came out all guns blazing against the Pakistanis for their dismal performance in the field.

Rohit Sharma (91) and Shikhar Dhawan (68) added 136 runs in their first wicket partnership to give India a solid start at the beginning of the innings.

Imad Wasim was hit three sixes in the 48th over by Pandya while Kohli finished the innings off in style with a boundary.

The biggest improvement for India over the past few years has been their bowling - this is no longer a team that only rely on their batsmen, they have four or five world-class bowlers, capable of knocking down any team in the world - heck, so good is India's bowling at the moment, there is no place in the playing XI for R Ashwin.

The chief worry among them is the Muslim Brotherhood, a Sunni Islamist political group opposed to monarchical rule. There had been no official communication to banks from the Central Bank of Egypt on the split, the bankers said.

Pakistan were bowled out for 164 runs.

Pakistan were always behind the eight ball in this chase, and India never really allowed they to get ahead of the run rate.

The Sarfraz Ahmed-led side now require victories from their final two games against Sri Lanka and South Africa to stand any chance of making it to the semi-finals of the eight-team marquee event. Let us take a close look at how the events unfolded in the engrossing encounter.

'India's batsmen pounded Pakistan into the ground, ' The Hindu article said. "But I think the fruits of the patience was seen towards the end when they started to open out and score pretty freely". "We bowled a really good over and then we bowled a variation in our sixth ball and that's the ball that ended up going for a boundary", he said.

Yuvraj was a little iffy in the early part of his inning as Hasan Ali dropped a sitter off Shadab's wrong one. Things slowed down for India after the departure of Dhawan and they managed to score only eighteen runs between 29th and 35th over.

It marked a direct stand against the Trump administration and a formal commitment to upholding the targets of the Paris agreement. And that leaves the White House with something of a dilemma.
