Colombo: Sep 17, 2012

 

Ravichandran Ashwin bagged three wickets in quick wickets to leave Pakistan reeling at 84 for four in 10 overs, in chase of 186 against India in their ICC Twenty20 World Cup practice match in Colombo on Monday.

 

Pakistan needs a further runs to win from 10 overs with wickets in hand.

 

Ashwin broke a strong 50-run stand between Kamran Akmal and Mohammad Hafeez, dismissing the latter in the 10th over for 38.

 

Earlier in the first innings, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma struck quickfire half-centuries to power India to 185 for three against arch-rivals Pakistan in their second warm-up game ahead of the ICC World Twenty20.

 

Kohli celebrated his ICC ODI Player of the Year award with yet another sterling knock of unbeaten 75, while Sharma returned to form with a 40-ball 56. 

 

The highlight of India’s innings was the 127-run fourth-wicket partnership between Kohli and Sharma that came off just 77 balls.

 

Kohli decorated his 47-ball stay at the crease with seven fours and two huge hits over the fence, while Sharma struck six boundaries and two maximum during his knock.

 

Brief Scores: India 185 for 3 in 20 overs (Virat Kohli 75*, Rohit Sharma 56, Virender Sehwag 26; Saeed Ajmal 2 for 22) vs Pakistan 84 for 4 in 10 overs (Mohammad Hafeez 38, Kamran Akmal 33*; Ravichandran Ashwin 3 for 8)
