Rain again plagues the Champions Trophy with game reduced to 40 overs.
India put on a dazzling display in the field to bowl out Pakistan for 165 in 39.4 overs in a rain-hit Champions Trophy group B match on Saturday.
Four bowlers claimed two wickets each and the last two batsmen were run out after India sent Pakistan in to bat in front of flag-waving supporters from both sides who packed the Edgbaston stands.
The match drew a full house even though it held only academic interest since India had already qualified for the semi-finals and Pakistan are out of the race after losing both their previous games.
The game was reduced to 40-overs-a-side due to rain stoppages. Further bad weather has been forecast over Birmingham for the rest of the day.
Asad Shafiq top-scored with 41 and Umar Amin made 27 not out, but Pakistan’s batting woes that had dogged them through the tournament continued.
Opener Nasir Jamshed, whose previous five innings against India included three centuries and a half-century, managed only two when he was snapped up in the slips off Bhuvaneshwar Kumar.
Pakistan plodded to 7-1 in the first five overs, before a cover driven boundary by Mohammad Hafeez off Umesh Yadav, produced a flurry of fours from either end.
Pakistan moved to 50-1 in 12 overs when a 15-minute interruption due to light rain caused them further trouble.
Hafeez, who hit five boundaries in his 27, fell on the first ball after resumption, edging Kumar to a diving Mahendra Singh Dhoni behind the stumps.
Pakistan captain Misbah-ul Haq helped Shafiq put on 54 runs for the fourth wicket on either side of a second rain stoppage, before he was bowled by Ravindra Jadeja for 22.
Shafiq was dismissed with the help of a television review after umpire Richard Kettleborough initially rejected a catch down the leg-side by Dhoni off Ishant Sharma.
Shoaib Malik was trapped leg-before by Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin, who had earlier dismissed Kamran Akmal, bowled Wahab Riaz to reduce Pakistan to 140-7.
