India have lost their second wicket as Virat Kohli fell for five off 11 deliveries against Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2014 match in Mirpur. Umar Gul dug one in short and it was close to Kohli. He tried to work it away on the off side, but edged it to Umar Akmal behind the wickets. He was dismissed on the first delivery of the 10th over.


The score for India after 10 overs is 60 for two. Rohit Sharma is batting on 39 and Ajinkya Rahane is on four. Pakistan had won the toss and elected to field first. Shikhar Dhawan was the first wicket to fall for India. Mohammad Hafeez bowled a good length delivery and Dhawan went back on his back-foot and played across the line.


The ball hit the pads and the Pakistan players appealed. The umpire raised his finger and Dhawan had to depart for 10 off 13 deliveries. Replays showed that the ball might have just clipped the top of leg-stump.


Rohit pulled a back of a length delivery from Junaid Khan over deep mid-wicket for six. Junaid then bowled one on the pads and Rohit flicked it away for a four past the short fine-leg fielder. Junaid then came from round the wicket and Rohit hit through the line over mid-off for a four. Rohit hit another four over over mid-off.
