India’s ICC Cricket World Cup hero Rohit Sharma joked with journalists that he would only provide advice for Pakistan if he were to one day become their head coach following his match-winning display in India’s 89-run victory at Old Trafford on Sunday.

India extended their winning run against Pakistan at the World Cup to seven straight games following a win earned via the Duckworth–Lewis–Stern method after rain delays.

Sharma’s sparkling 140 from 113 balls helped India to victory and, after the game, he was asked by a Pakistani journalist what advice he would give to the Pakistan batsmen.

“If I ever become the Pakistan coach, then I will tell you…but now? Now what can I tell you?…(laughs),” joked Sharma.


The match also saw Virat Kohli become the third Indian batsman to pass 11,000 in one-day international cricket, doing so in his 222nd innings and becoming the fastest to reach the milestone.

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed admitted his side were “hurting” after India extended their winning run against their fierce rivals at the ICC Cricket World Cup with a 89-run victory at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Rain delays saw the Duckworth–Lewis–Stern method enforced, with Rohit Sharma’s sparkling 140 from 113 balls helping India to their seventh win in seven World Cup matches against their arch sub-continent foes.

“Definitely it is very disappointing, it is hurting, you know,” said Sarfraz.

“We were going really well, especially if you talk about our batting. When we lost our first wicket, Imam and Fakhar, they made a good partnership.


“Our message was just stay on the wicket and just try and hit four, six to seven runs per over. But unfortunately, we lost too many wickets and that’s why we lost the match.”
