India thrashes Pakistan by nine wickets, registers a comprehensive victory. Rohit and Rayudu collect a single each as India win with 63 balls to spare!
Shoaib Malik’s disciplined innings along with useful contribution from Sarfraz Ahmed helped Pakistan post 237/7 against India in the Super Four tie of the Asia Cup at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium here on Sunday.
Malik scored 78 runs in 90 balls and Sarfraz made 44 runs in 66 balls to forge a crucial 107-run fourth wicket partnership to guide their team to a respectable total.
Electing to bat, Pakistan started off on a decent note, forging a 24 run partnership for the first wicket before opener Imam-ul-Haq (10) was dismissed by Yuzvendra Chahal in the eighth over via Decision Review System (DRS).
Fakhar Zaman (31), who seemed good in the middle was the next to go. He was adjudged leg before wicket off Kuldeep Yadav in the 15th over. Soon Babar Azam was run out while trying to steal the single off Ravindra Jadeja.
