imagesNEW DELHI : India will take on Sri Lanka in their second Group B match of the Champions Trophy cricket at the Oval in London today. The match will start at 3 PM. All India Radio will broadcast live commentary on the match alternately in Hindi and English from 2:30 PM.

Yesterday, Pakistan defeated South Africa by 19 runs via Duckworth Lewis method in a rain-hit Group B game at Edgbaston, Birmingham. With this win, Pakistan now remain in contention for a semifinal berth. Pakistan had succumbed to a crushing 124-run loss to title-holders India in their tournament-opener on Sunday.
After being asked to bowl first, Pakistan restricted South Africa to a modest 219 for eight in their 50 overs. Pakistan were comfortably placed in their chase at 119 for three in 27 overs when rain interrupted the proceedings.The contest could not be resumed due to persistent drizzling and Pakistan were declared winners of the game via Duckworth-Lewis method.
