Twitterati goes bang as India beat Pakistan in World Cup clash

The much-anticipated clash between Pakistan and India at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 was in full swing at the Old Trafford Stadium.

Sarfaraz won the toss and decided to field first. However, it seems that the decision backfired as Pakistan had a pretty tough day on the field.

Kuldeep Yadav sparked a dramatic Pakistan collapse as India won by 89 runs in a rain-affected match to extend their unbeaten World Cup record against Pakistan on Sunday.

The left-arm spinner struck twice in quick succession as Pakistan, who had been 117 for one, lost four wickets for 12 runs in 18 balls at Old Trafford to dent their bid to reach a target of 337.

Hardik Pandya and Vijay Shankar also took two wickets each.

In a match cut down to 40 overs, Pakistan managed to score 212/6 while chasing 302 runs (DLS method.)

India´s 336 for five featured opener Rohit Sharma´s 140 — his second hundred in three innings this tournament — and captain Virat Kohli´s 77.

Social media was abuzz with reactions on the match.

Here are a few of them:
