India posts convincing win over Pakistan
Virendar Sehwag thrashed Pakistan’s bowling with an aggressive hundred to lead India to a comfortable six-wicket win in the final Group B Asia Cup match in Karachi on Thursday.
Sehwag smashed a 95-ball 119 and Suresh Raina hit a 68-ball 84 during their 198-run second wicket stand to help India overhaul Pakistan’s 299-4 with 7.5 overs to spare.
Earlier, Shoaib Malik hit his first century as captain to help Pakistan post a challenging target.
However, it proved a cake walk for India who was indebted to some lusty batting by Sehwag and Raina as the duo tore apart the home bowling, which lost its bite after frontline paceman Umar Gul broke down with a side strain.
