Twitter reactions on India vs Pakistan in Manchester: Here's How Live Match Updates India vs Pakistan Fans Reacted on Twitter, as India begin the proceedings with the bat.

Rohit Sharma produced an elegant hundred before Kuldeep Yadav flummoxed the Pakistani batsmen as India inflicted a humiliating 89-run defeat on their arch-rivals in a much-hyped World Cup match, which eventually turned to be a lop-sided affair.

Chasing a stiff 337-run target, Pakistan were already down and out when rain stopped play after 35 overs. They had managed just 166 runs for the loss of six wickets, nowhere near the DLS par-score of 252. 

When play resumed, the match was reduced to 40 overs with a revised target of 302, which meant that Pakistan required 136 runs from five overs.

Imad Wasim (46) and Shadab Khan (20) remained unbeaten to end at 212 for six, handing India a comprehensive victory via Duckworth Lewis method.

Hadd hoti hai.

Wrong line.

Naah, can't get over it.

All hail his grace Rohit of the House Sharma, first of his name, King of the Short-Ball Kingdom, Destroyer of Pakistan bowlers, etc etc.

Rohit Sharma dismissed for a brilliant 140.

It's the fielder's fault, though..

Unless of course, the clouds come up and Pakistan doesn't get to bat.

Another record for Rohit Sharma!

Describe Kohli's cover-drives in one word. We're waiting.

Don't look, Pakistan fans..

Let's win and do the Bum-Ro, Bum-Ro? No? Anyone? Okay.

Kevin Pietersen has something to say..

KL Rahul, or Rahul Dravid? 

Maiden to begin from Mohammad Amir!

Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul to open.

The players are out. Let's begin!
