22:10 (IST)23 JUN 2018

With this win, India stay on top of the Group 'A' table and will play Pakistan in a couple of days from now while Kenya will look to bounce back when they face Pakistan in an all-important clash tomorrow. 

22:08 (IST)23 JUN 2018

India win 48-19!!

A dominating effort from the Indian outfit as Rishank Devadiga and Monu Goyat finished with Super 10s to their name while Girish Ernak and Sandeep Narwal contributed from the defense front. Such was the power-packed performance from Rishank and Monu that even Ajay Thakur, who led the way against Pakistan was content with leading the team from the court while his men went about their job in style. 

Kenya, on the other hand, will want to take heart from the fact that they did do well to stay in the hunt, albeit for a short duration as Izaac Njoroge and David Mosambayi combined to gather most of their points.
