And that brings today to a conclusion. Thank you for every one who has stayed with us throughout these rain delays. It's been a long, long day, and the cricket hasn't been too competitive, but we've had fun with you. Until next time, from Danyal and Shashank, goodbye.

Virat Kohli: "The pitch wouldn't have made much of a difference. The ball started turning in the second half of the first innings. But we wanted to bowl first to, if you bowled in the right areas, there was joy to be had.

"Rohit's knock was outstanding again. KL helped Rohit, who showed why he's such a good ODI player again today. It was ateam effort to get to 336.

"Kuldeep Yadav was brilliant. Babar and Fakhar were trying to play him out, but I wanted him to have a longer spell. The ball to dismiss Babar was an outstanding delivery. I think today was the best he bowled at this World Cup.

"I think they outplayed us in the Champions Trophy final, but if you focus on this game as too emotional, things can go wrong. We never approach them from that perspective. We are professional about it and the result is what matters.

"Slight niggle for Bhuvi, he slipped on one of the footmarks. He's out for two, maybe three games, but he should come back for us at some stage during this tournament."

Sarfaraz is at the presentation.

"We won a good toss but didn't bowl in the right areas, and Rohit played very well. Our plan was to pitch the ball up to Rohit, but we didn't execute it well. It was a good toss to win but we didn't capitalise on it.

"We picked two spinners because of the moisture. The credit goes to India's batsmen for batting so well. We also lost the match in those three overs where we lost four wickets. Fakhar and Imam were going really well, but we collapsed after that.

"Definitely, it's getting tougher and now e have to win all remaining games."

Rohit Sharma is the Man of the Match for his second century this World Cup.

On the match-up: "Happy with the way we played as a team. We know at times, it can get frustrating having lost out in the previous game. We had the intent of playing a solid game today.

On missing a double ton: "I was unhappy (when I got out), particularly the way I played that shot. He just pushed mid-on back and brought fine leg in, a little misjudgment from my side. When you're set you want to get as many runs as possible. Trust me, wasn't thinking of a double hundred. Got out at the wrong time, the partnership was becoming solid and we wanted to kill the game."

On Rahul: "Rahul played very well, took some time early on, probably what was required. Can't play shots straightaway. The idea was to see what is happening. We got a good start and built on from there."

7.28pm In a sequence that first started in 1992, Pakistan are yet to beat India in a World Cup game in seven attempts. This has been another comprehensive India win set up by Rohit and Rahul. Then Kohli did what he does to set up a mammoth total. The only stage when India were challenged was during the course of an industrious second-wicket stand between Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman. Then they lost four wickets for next-to-nothing and it all came crashing down.

The bad news for Pakistan: they lost. The good news: the real-tough opponents (India, Australia and England) are out of the way. They have South Africa, New Zealand, Afghanistan and Bangladesh coming up, and Pakistan will need to win each of those to have a chance to progress. With just one win in five games, Pakistan are right on the edge. Can't afford another washout.

Wait for the roar at OT. One ball left, the Indian flags are out. The fans are starting to dance.

the bouncer is too good for Imad as he backs away to pull, beaten for pace. Dhoni fumbled and this one nearly grazed the helmet behind him.

Rahul has put down a simple chance at deep midwicket. Shadab's slog across the line resulted in a top-edge, was in the air for a long long time. He just took it way too casually.
