Commentary (India innings)

That's all folks! What a game we have had today, hope you enjoyed every bit of it. Another epic Ind-Pak clash, this could not have been scripted better. Do tune in on 20th of March for a crucial Bangladesh Sri Lanka game. Here is wishing you a good night to all of you! Cheers!

An obvious choice for Man of the Match, Virat Kohli for his brilliant 183 of 148 balls.

Pakistan and Misbah could not do much but be mere spectators to this show. India have all the right to feel elated after this thumping win but the think tank needs to realize that the bowlers need to put up a better show.

The talented right hander, proved his temperament yet again with a flawless knock against a quality Pakistan attack. It is a period in his life, where Kohli can do no wrong and he seems to making the most of it. Sharma too has to be lauded for the hand he played and was the able partner that Kohli needed.

The start was a disaster for India after Gambhir was dismissed very early in the innings. An experienced Tendulkar and a confident Kohli went about the resurrection job and created a comfortable platform to set up the chase. Sachin was dismissed just after he reached his fifty and then it was completely the Kohli show.

What a win for India! The proud cricketing nation have managed to chase a mammoth 330 with 13 balls to spare. This is their highest successful run chase ever in ODIs and yet again it is the man in sublime form, Virat Kohli who has been the architect of the chase.

Commentary (Pakistan innings)

India have a task at hand and need a very good start, if they have to get anywhere near this total. There is still no news about Sachin's injury and hopefully he will come out to open. The wicket does have a lot of turn and the Pakistani spinners will be quite a handful. Should be a very interesting second half, stay tuned...

India will be very disappointed, with their performance. It was a flat track no doubt, but the Indians have no excuses for the wayward bowling that they produced today. Not bowling according to the field and giving away a lot of easy scoring opportunities, MSD will have a lot to say to his team.

The openers went about the job very well, by hitting the fence regularly and mixing it up very well with singles. The two centurions Hafeez and Jamshed, put up a 224 run opening stand and laid out a beautiful platform for the batsmen to follow. Younus and Akmal built on it and ensured that Pakistan posted a huge total on board.

A superb performance by Pakistan after winning the toss. 329/6 at the end of fifty overs. Misbah could not have asked for more from his batsmen in a high pressure encounter.

49.6 A Dinda to Misbah, An absolutely ugly looking shot to end the over. Misbah looking to scoop this one but goes off balance and falls over in the process. A single to end the innings. 329/6

49.5 A Dinda to U Gul, Bye! Slower one outside off, Gul makes no contact but manages to sneak a bye. 328/6

49.4 A Dinda to Misbah, High full toss again, pulled to deep mid-wicket for one. 327/6

Umar Gul is the new man in.

49.3 A Dinda to H Azam, OUT! Holes out! Azam looks to clout this one over mid-wicket but gets it low on the bat. The ball sails high in the air, Kohli does well to settle under it and dives backward to take a really good skier. 326/6

49.2 A Dinda to Misbah, A short delivery, pulled away through mid-wicket for a single. 326/5

49.1 A Dinda to Misbah, High full toss, Misbah misses out on the pull and wears this one. 325/5

49.1 A Dinda to Misbah, Wide! An attempted slower one, way outside off. 325/5

Dinda back on.

48.6 P Kumar to Misbah, Works this one behind square leg for one. 324/5

Misbah-ul-Haq walks in.

48.5 P Kumar to Y Khan, OUT! A blinder from Raina! Younus backs away again and looks to go over cover, Raina anticipates well and moves quickly to his left, times his jump to perfection and plucks this one out of thin air. An absolute stunner to get rid of Younus. 323/5

47th ODI Fifty for Younus and his 6th against India.

48.4 P Kumar to Y Khan, FOUR! Full delivery on off, smacked just wide of a diving Raina at extra cover for a boundary. 323/4

48.3 P Kumar to Y Khan, Gets inside out and strokes this over cover for a couple. 319/4

48.2 P Kumar to H Azam, Steers it wide of point, but a super effort from the substitute Tiwary will keep it to one. 317/4

48.1 P Kumar to H Azam, Full and way outside off, no connection from the batsman. 316/4

That's all folks! What a game we have had today, hope you enjoyed every bit of it. Another epic Ind-Pak clash, this could not have been scripted better. Do tune in on 20th of March for a crucial Bangladesh Sri Lanka game. Here is wishing you a good night to all of you! Cheers!

An obvious choice for Man of the Match, Virat Kohli for his brilliant 183 of 148 balls.

Pakistan and Misbah could not do much but be mere spectators to this show. India have all the right to feel elated after this thumping win but the think tank needs to realize that the bowlers need to put up a better show.

The talented right hander, proved his temperament yet again with a flawless knock against a quality Pakistan attack. It is a period in his life, where Kohli can do no wrong and he seems to making the most of it. Sharma too has to be lauded for the hand he played and was the able partner that Kohli needed.

The start was a disaster for India after Gambhir was dismissed very early in the innings. An experienced Tendulkar and a confident Kohli went about the resurrection job and created a comfortable platform to set up the chase. Sachin was dismissed just after he reached his fifty and then it was completely the Kohli show.

What a win for India! The proud cricketing nation have managed to chase a mammoth 330 with 13 balls to spare. This is their highest successful run chase ever in ODIs and yet again it is the man in sublime form, Virat Kohli who has been the architect of the chase.

47.5 U Gul to MS Dhoni, FOUR! MSD takes no time to deliver the winning runs! Short outside off, Dhoni gets up on his toes and smacks it past point for a boundary. India have pulled a bunny out of a hat here! What a game, India Pakistan encounters never cease to disappoint. 330/4

47.4 U Gul to S Raina, Short ball and is pulled away for a single. India now just a hit away from a victory! 326/4

47.3 U Gul to S Raina, SIX! Picks it up off a good length and whips it handsomely over mid-wicket for a boundary. Gul cannot do much but just watch the ball sail over. 325/4

47.2 U Gul to S Raina, Looks to guide this short one to third man but fails to connect. 319/4

47.2 U Gul to S Raina, Wide! Way down the leg side and one more extra to the total. 319/4

The Indian Skipper walks in.

47.1 U Gul to V Kohli, OUT! A brilliant knock comes to an end! Kohli looks to pull this from outside off but only manages to get a top edge and Hafeez takes the chance at point. A tired shot from Kohli, looking for a boundary probably but has to walk back. He can do so with his head held high, this will go down in the books as on of the finest ODI innings. 318/4

47.6 I Pathan to H Azam, Walks across and scoops it over short fine leg, Dinda in pursuit again and puts a slide in to keep the ball in play. 316/4

47.5 I Pathan to H Azam, Slower one on off, opens the face and steers it to point. Looks for one but will not get it. 313/4

Hammad Azam is the new man in.

47.4 I Pathan to S Afridi, OUT! Straight to the man in the deep! Low full toss on middle, Afridi looks to get under this one and get it over deep mid-wicket but hits it straight at the throat of Kohli, who takes it comfortably. 313/4

47.4 I Pathan to S Afridi, No ball! A very high full toss, Afridi a bit surprised by the same and lets it go. Irfan puts his hand up straight away in apology. 313/3

47.3 I Pathan to Y Khan, Very full delivery, worked towards extra cover for a single. 312/3

47.2 I Pathan to S Afridi, Drives down to long off and gets one. 311/3

47.1 I Pathan to Y Khan, Low full toss, Younus picks it up and chips it over square leg for three. Kohli had to cover a lot of ground and Pakistan run the third comfortably. 310/3

Hafeez and Jamshed make their way out to the middle, Kumar will run in with the new ball.

All in the waiting folks, it does not matter if you have played 3 games or 300, you will have butterflies in your tummy when these two cricketing giants lock horns! Ayaz Memon tweets, "Good to have an India-Pak match. Been a year or so. Pumps up the excitement. One of cricket's great contests..."

Pakistan - Mohammad Hafeez, Nasir Jamshed, Younis Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq(C), Umar Akmal(Wk), Shahid Afridi, Hammad Azam, Umar Gul, Saeed Ajmal, Wahab Riaz, Aizaz Cheema

India - Gautam Gambhir, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni(Wk/C), Yusuf Pathan, Irfan Pathan, Ravichandran Ashwin, Praveen Kumar, Ashok Dinda

Toss - Pakistan has won the toss and elected to bat. One change for them, Wahab Riaz replaces Sarfraz Ahmed. Umar Akmal will keep the wickets. For India, Yusuf Pathan comes into the side in place of unfit Ravindra Jadeja.

Pitch - It's the same surface on which the first match of the tournament between Bangladesh and Pakistan was played. The track is good for batting and has plenty of runs in it.

It's the big one, mother of all battles, India v Pakistan. After faltering against the Bangladeshis, it's must win match for the Indians and they would be looking to hit back hard. Pakistan, on the other hand, have made a solid start to the tournament, defeating Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in their previous matches and are placed in a strong position. They would be looking to continue the same momentum momentum. A cracker of a contest is definitely on cards.
