Team India will retain Champions Trophy: BCCI acting president

Champions Trophy Pak vs SA South Africa opt to bat against PakistanMore

Shukla added that Pakistan has got good cricketers and standard of cricket in Pakistan is very good, PCB must take advantage of this but they must secure their venues first.

India's top four batsmen helped themselves to fifties but none of them looked as fluent as Yuvraj, whose quickfire 53 off 32 balls enhanced his reputation as one of the sweetest timers of the ball.

India's Shikhar Dhawan, right, bats during the ICC Champions Trophy match against Pakistan at Edgbaston in Birmingham, England, Sunday, June 4.

Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhwan, Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh and Kedar Jadhav are the six batsmen in the team. Stars like Abhishek Bachchan and Ranveer Singh, who are following the match closely, took some time off to wish Team India luck on Twitter.

Sharma was run out on a contentious call by the TV umpire, with the opener's bat over the line but not obviously grounded.

Apart from the top order, all-rounder Hardik Pandya's (20 runs in six balls) cameo at the end also allowed India post a challenging total. Another citizen, Mir Zaman, said it didn't matter if Pakistani team won or lost and what matter was that if they gave full measure on the field or not. The defending champions forged the crucial partnerships, played the ball to its merit and post-rain, when it was more hard to bat with the same concentration, the batsman applied themselves to the English conditions and displayed temperament.

India had seemed to slumber in the middle of their innings after reaching 136-0 but a key 93-run partnership in less than 10 overs came from Kohli and Yuvraj for the third wicket. The task proved too much for Pakistan, who were bowled out for 164 in 33.4 overs.
