India were 305 for four when rain stopped play against Pakistan in their showpiece World Cup match at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Opener Rohit Sharma hit 140, his second hundred in three innings this World Cup, to put India in a commanding position.

India captain Virat Kohli was 71 not out when rain forced the players off the field at 1:45 pm local time (1245 GMT) in the 47th over.

Vijay Shankar was three not out, having overturned an appeal for caught behind off the last ball before the stoppage.

During his innings, Kohli became the quickest player to score 11,000 one-day internationals, reaching the landmark in 222 innings -- smashing the record of compatriot Sachin Tendulkar who got to the milestone in 276 innings.

Old Trafford is notorious for rain interruptions and organisers will be desperate to get this game going again, with a World Cup-record four matches having already been washed out during this edition.

 
Sorry but the period of time connection to the operation is exceeded.
