Indian opener Rohit Sharma hit a sparkling ton as India are batting first against Pakistan in their fourth game in the ongoing World Cup on Sunday at Manchester.

India scored 187 runs for one wicket at the end of 32 overs. They lost the wicket of Lokesh Rahul who replaced injured Shikhar Dhawan in this match.

Wahab Riaz took him out for 57 off 788.

The right-handed batsman reached the three-digit magic figure off 85 balls with nine fours and three sixes, which is his second ton against the arch-rival Pakistan and third in the ICC Men's World Cup so far.

Earlier, Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed won the toss and opted to bowl first in the overcast condition. But the Pakistani bowlers failed to capitalize the surface. Instead, they leaked 100 runs just in 17.3 overs.

Along the way, Rohit completed his fifty off 34 balls, which came as an immense pressure for Pakistan, who have missed out a couple of run-out chances at the start of the innings.

Before heading to the match, India remained unbeaten in the 10-nation fray after winning two of their first three games with the other match against New Zealand being washed out due to rain in Trent Bridge on Thursday.

On the other hand, Pakistan lost two of their first four games. They beat hosts England by 14 runs and the other match against Sri Lanka was washed out.

Pakistan have so far played six matches against their archrival India in the World Cups but failed to register any win. So, this time, they are keen to end their winning drought in the World Cup.

India, on the other hand, are reluctant to break their golden run against Pakistan in the World Cups.UNB.
