From Morning Report, 8:47 am on 17 June 2019

In a rain affected game, India beat Pakistan by 89 runs at Old Trafford overnight.

It is one of the most intense sporting rivalries in the world.

The demand for tickets for the match between Pakistan and India was so high they could have sold out the ground 30 times over.

The BBC's Henry Moeran was at the match. He tells Susie Ferguson that while India remain tournament favourites, Australia, England and New Zealand are looking competitive.
