Mirpur: Mar 18, 2012

 

Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar hit half-centuries as India reached 161 for two from 25 overs, chasing a huge target of 330 against Pakistan in the fifth One-Day International of the Asia Cup 2012 on Sunday.

 

Kohli and Tendulkar added 133 runs for the second wicket to lead India’s fightback and put their chase back on track, after they lost opener Gautam Gambhir in the very first over of the game.

 

Gambhir fell to Mohammad Hafeez on the very second ball of the chase, trapped in front of the wicket for a duck.

 

Tendulkar and Kohli then teamed up to bail India out of trouble, adding 133 runs in the  next 19 overs at a brisk rate of 6.93

 

Coming off from a fine century in the previous match, Tendulkar struck five boundaries and a six to reach 52 off 48 balls. His innings was ended by Saeed Ajmal, who had him caught in the first slip by Younis Khan.

 

Kohli slammed a fluent 94 not out, which came off 86 balls and hitting 11 boundaries.

 

Rohit Sharma is batting on seven.

 

Earlier, Pakistan set a massive target of 330 against India to win in the fifth One-Day International match at the Shere Bangla Stadium in Mirpur on Sunday.

 

Hafeez and Jamshed showed aggressive intent right from the start and added more to Indian bowlers’ woes, who faced lot of criticism after their surprising loss to Bangladesh in the previous game.

 

Jamshed set the tone early when he cracked three boundaries off Praveen Kumar in the third over of the game.

 

The two Pakistan batsmen added 224 runs from the first wicket, which came from 35 overs at a brisk run rate of 6.25

 

Hafeez clobbered nine boundaries and a six to during his innings of 105 off 113 balls. His innings came to an end when he was trapped in front of the wickets by Ashok Dinda.

 

Brief Scores: Pakistan 329 for 6 in 50 overs ( Nasir Jamshed 112, Mohammad Hafeez 105, Younis Khan 52; Ashok Dinda 2 for 47) vs India 161 for 2 in 25 overs (Virat Kohli 94*, Sachin Tendulkar 52; Mohammad Hafeez 1 for 22)
