Worth a punt on Pakistan? Probably not now as winning the toss is often the deciding factor in this format.

Why not Corbo? I think it's a decent backing so long as you're not putting a fortune on them.

India should have batted first. After Bhuvi and Bumrah (10 overs) I can't see much of a threat.

Pakistan has really started well, and our bowling has been indifferent. Ashwin proving to be ordinary yet again.

Lool love it, Morgan should go play in Dublin

Also Pakistan off to a good and lucky start. Hopefully we get a high scoring tight game.

I thought India should have batted after winning the toss, but Kohli and team feels more confident chasing. It looks like they've got a chance on their hands now, though.

Both the Pak openers have now scored half-centuries. This is a good start. Just feel if the Indians are feeling nervous, because the bowling has been poor, the fielding has been average and the captaincy has been uninspiring. We need something special to happen right now to get back into the game.

So, Pakistan losing their first wicket in a very Pakistani way, with both the batsmen ending up at the same end. This could be the opening India would have wanted. Can they really utilize it, though?

Brave, fearless batting by Pakistan, and India look low on confidence right now. Time for Jadhav to be brought on?

Fakhar on his game. Going to be a high scorer here.

Costly no ball. Maiden 100 for the opener.

Fakhar making India pay for that no ball. Good century from him. This is very ominous for India. With runs to play with, Pakistani bowling will look even more potent.

Looked at the odds last night but not much value. Pakistan not really worth a punt.

Fakhar Zaman finally getting out. Can India now look at keeping Pakistan to below 350?

Shocking bowling by India in this match - 24 extras in the Pakistani total.

Bowling has been indisciplined and the fielding was pretty ordinary. No wonder we're in a pickle right now.
