India beat Pakistan by seven wickets in World Twenty20 match
DHAKA: Suresh Raina and Virat Kohli steered India to a comfortable seven wicket win over Pakistan in their opening World Twenty20 match in Mirpur on Friday.
Raina struck 35 runs off 34 balls, helped by let offs from Pakistani fielders, to set up India’s win. Kohli scored 36 runs off 45 balls.
India were rarely in trouble with Rohit Sharma and Shankar Dhawan getting India off to a solid start. They suffered a tense period when Sharma, Dhawan and Yuvraj Singh were all dismissed in quick succession, leaving the team reeling at 65 for three in the 11th over. But Kohli and Raina steadied the innings for India and saw them off safely.
From Pakistan, Saeed Ajmal was the pick of the bowlers, claiming one wicket in his four overs, conceding just 18 runs. Umar Gul and Bilawal Bhatti also picked up one wicket each.
Earlier, India won the toss and decided to bowl first.
Slow start will put team in trouble…!!
Let there b a good contest. A tight one. Win or loss does not matter much.
Are you kidding? Winning is everything!
Hi..Hi..Ha..Ha..Ho..Ho.. India win & maintain World Cup records.
Bigg three or world cup champions has won today
and there is also very good support for India
pakistan crushed…..thrashed…….history repeats… pak can never beat india in world cup matches…..:D
I know our bowlers did gr8 job. But when kholi comes to bat .. Man .. He thinks no one can get him out .. Kholi you beauty .. How come we produce such great batsman always ..
Sorry Pak friends, we paid u back dearly and quickly 😉
Well played India. This is how cricket should be played and not by flukes hitting sixes in last over.
Shd hv put 150 plus. Pakistan batted a little hesitant.
Well played team India -congrates.
Even though India won but it was disappointing to see a won sided match. Pakistan never looked like changing the history which repeated itself.
A few weeks when India lost by one wicket, ET called it a “rout”.
So how would ET term the loss in this game?
India deserved to win. They were simply the better team.
Good show by India…..Hope they will remain consistent till the end of tournament.
Excellent bowling by Ajmal…Hard luck Pakistan!!!
it was a good match, well played by both. But in the end only one is winner and this time it is India. Looking fwd to more such matches between our country. Ameen.
The question is not who wins the match th reall question is who plays well because both teams can not win Pakistan team is also a strong team.
India crushed pakistan
As usual Pak team failed to play under pressure, at least now Pak team management and ex-player should seriously think into the issue and selection must be on merit.

Everybody knows India will always win against pakistan in any format of world cup.
