The ball to get Babar Azam was brilliant. A very important moment in the game," Kohli added. <p></p> <p></p>A third rain stoppage came with Pakistan 166-6 off 35 overs. The match then descended into something of a farce when play resumed under leaden skies, with Pakistan requiring an outlandish 136 more runs in five overs to reach a revised victory total of 302 in 40 overs. <p></p> <p></p>That target which, eventually became 94 off the last six balls, unsurprisingly proved beyond them as Pakistan finished on 212-6, dealing a major blow to their semi-final hopes. <p></p> <p></p>Criticised for opting to bowl first, Pakistan captain <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/sarfraz-ahmed/news/">Sarfraz Ahmed</a> said: "We had a plan to pitch it up but we didn't hit the right areas. <p></p> <p></p>"We didn't capitalise on winning the toss and conceded too many runs. We lost so many wickets in two or three overs and that is what cost us the match. <p></p> <p></p>"It is tough. We have four matches left and we will try our level best to win them all." <p></p> <p></p>Bhuvneshwar Kumar limped off in the fifth over of Pakistan's chase with a hamstring injury that sidelined him from the rest of the match, with Kohli admitting the India paceman will out for a "maximum" of three matches. <p></p> <p></p>Vijay Shankar, completing Kumar's over, struck first ball when he had opener Imam-ul-Haq lbw for seven. <p></p> <p></p>Fakhar Zaman (62) and Babar Azam (48) repaired the damage with a century stand, before they both fell to Yadav as they tried to up the tempo. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Huge roars</strong> <p></p> <p></p>Babar was bowled between bat by a superb delivery before Zaman miscued a sweep to short fine leg. <p></p> <p></p>All-rounder Hardik Pandya then took two wickets in two balls. <p></p> <p></p>Mohammad Hafeez was caught at deep square leg before Shoaib Malik played on for his second successive duck -- a wicket greeted with huge roars by the massed ranks of India fans in a capacity crowd, with an estimated one billion watching on television. <p></p> <p></p>Earlier, Kohli became the quickest player to 11,000 one-day international runs, getting there in 222nd innings compared to compatriot Sachin Tendulkar's previous record of 276 innings. <p></p> <p></p>Meanwhile, Pakistan left-arm quick Mohammad Amir continued his fine form with 3-47 despite two early warnings for running on the pitch. <p></p> <p></p>But not even Amir could stop Sharma and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/kl-rahul/news/">KL Rahul</a> (57) marking their first ODI match as a opening duo with a stand of 136. <p></p> <p></p>Sharma went to fifty with a six over long-on and a cut four off successive deliveries from recalled leg-spinner Shadab Khan. <p></p> <p></p>His single off Shadab saw Sharma to an 85-ball hundred including three sixes and nine fours. <p></p> <p></p>But a quickfire stand of 98 with Kohli ended when Sharma, trying a needlessly extravagant scoop, flicked Hasan to short fine leg. <p></p> <p></p>Kohli, 71 not out at the start of a 55-minute rain break, fell soon after the resumption when, trying to hook Amir, he 'walked' for a catch behind by wicket-keeper Sarfaraz despite replays appearing to show he didn't hit the ball.
