India won the group stage match against Pakistan in Cricket World Cup 2015 by 76 runs on Sunday.

Winning the toss, India chose to bat and set a target of 301 for Pakistan to chase.

India’s Virat Kohli scored the highest for the team with scoring a century.

Pakistan’s legendary all-rounder Imran Khan said Pakistan had blundered by going for Umar Akmal as the wicketkeeper.

Akmal dropped Virat Kohli’s match which led to setting up a big total for India and scoring his 22nd One-Day International (ODI) hundred.

Virat Kohli became the first Indian batsman to score a century in a World Cup game against Pakistan. He has also equaled Sourav Ganguly’s 22 ODIs.

Pakistan made 224 runs in 47 overs with all players out.
