An unbeaten 81 from captain Virat Kohli helped steer India to a comprehensive 124-run victory over Pakistan in the opening match of their Champions Trophy campaign at Edgbaston.

Kohli's big hitting - allied to a more patient 91 from opener Rohit Sharma and a blistering half-century from Yuvraj Singh - saw India post a daunting 319 for 3 from their rain-reduced 48 overs.

Pakistan, chasing a DLS-revised target of 289 off 41 overs, lost wickets at regular intervals, with only Azhar Ali threatening a substantial score.

The result leaves India level on points with South Africa at the top of Group B, with their second of three group matches against Sri Lanka on Thursday.
