India beat Pakistan by six wickets

7:21 am on 19 March 2012

India defeated Pakistan by six wickets in the Asia Cup one-day cricket tournament in Dhaka yesterday.

Virat Kohli smashed 183 off 148-balls as India achieved the 330-run target with 13 balls to spare in the first match between the two teams since the World Cup semi-final at Mohali last March.

Pakistan made it to the final despite the defeat, finishing with nine points from three games, while India and Bangladesh are still in contention.

Bangladesh need to win their final league match against Sri Lanka on Tuesday to knock India out.

Nasir Jamshed (112) and Mohammad Hafeez (105) earlier hit centuries as Pakistan scored a challenging 6-329 after electing to bat.
