Indian veteran batsman Yuvraj Singh feels that their emphatic 124-run win over arch-rivals Pakistan in an encounter of the Champions Trophy match here on Sunday has given them a flying start in their bid to defend the title. It was batsmen's show all the way, the first four batsmen went up with their massive fifties and the last one was Hardik Pandya who swiftly delivered three astounding sixes racing up India's total to 319 and his, a quick twenty. The openers Azhar Ali and Ahmed Shehzad built a 47-run partnership for the first wicket, but after Shehzad was dismissed for 12 (from 22 deliveries), Pakistan were never really in the game as they kept losing wickets at regular intervals.

Due to rain interruptions, the target was revised with Pakistan needing 289 in 41 overs according to Duckworth-Lewis (D/L) method.

With Kohli spoilt for choice in the fast bowling department at the moment, the question was if the India captain would go with two pacers or three.

Indian Skipper Virat Kohli has criticised the team's fielding against Pakistan in their Group B match of the Champions Trophy cricket tournament here.

But eyeing what would have been his 11th ODI hundred, Sharma was run out when he just failed to beat Babar Azam's throw to Sarfraz after Kohli's call for one. Kohli has been a firm backer of Yuvraj, who he believes has the game suited for big occasions like Sunday.

The win moves India to the top of the pool on net run-rate ahead of South Africa, who defeated Sri Lanka in their opening match on Saturday. Their fielders dropped several catches and their bowlers bowled poor length. The Sarfraz Army collapsed for 164 in 33.4 overs. The two sides have not played a bilateral series since 2012-2013, and India have used to juggle with the idea without an end to "cross border terrorism", which essentially means militant incursions along the disputed Kashmir border.

Arthur suggested too many Pakistan players had suffered "stage fright" against India in front of a capacity crowd of more than 24,000. The IPL is different, and global runs are different against a quality bowling attack as well.

But given by that stage the left-arm paceman had conceded a whopping 87 runs in 8.4 wicketless overs, his absence may not be that big a blow. "From that regard, as a cricketer, we really enjoyed this game, that's all I can say". 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.
