That's it. India have completely outplayed Pakistan in their Group A game in Dubai. Right from ball one, India were dominant in the game with some fantastic bowling by the Indian bowlers. The lack of game awareness from the Pakistan batsmen helped their cause too. All they managed was score 162 on a deck that has nothing for the bowlers. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan gave India a flying start with an 86-run stand for the opening wicket. Rohit departed for 52 and Dhawan was dismissed for 46. Dinesh Karthik and Ambati Rayudu scored 31 runs each and made sure that India cruised home without any further hiccups.

And that's it from us, folks.
Over 29 IND: 164/2(RR 5.66) Bowler: S Malik Sum..: 1 . . 4 1 4
28.6 Malik to Rayudu, FOUR, long hop and Rayudu smashes that to the deep square leg boundary and puts Pakistan out of their misery. India win by 8 wickets.
28.5 Malik to Karthik, 1 run, on the pads again and DK now says "over to you, Rayudu".
28.4 Malik to Karthik, FOUR, way outside leg and DK says enough is enough, I am going to hit a boundary. With that, India are one hit away from a win.
28.3 Malik to Karthik, no run, full toss and DK picks out the one fielder inside the ring at mid-wicket.
28.2 Malik to Karthik, no run, DK takes another dot.
28.1 Malik to Rayudu, 1 run, on the pads and Rayudu says "one will be just fine for me, over to you, DK".
Nine runs were needed off 22 overs. Can Indian finish it off in this over?
Over 28 IND: 154/2(RR 5.50) Bowler: F Zaman Sum..: . 4 . . . 1
27.6 Zaman to Rayudu, 1 run, Rayudu goes inside-out again but this time he takes a single that will give him the strike for the next over.
27.5 Zaman to Rayudu, no run, Rayudu rocks back and once again finds the fielder, this time at cover.
27.4 Zaman to Rayudu, no run, Rayudu dances down and did that hit a glove? Doesn't matter because the keeper drops it.
27.3 Zaman to Rayudu, no run, oh wait, Rayudu remembers he prefers collecting dots so hits it back to the bowler.
27.2 Zaman to Rayudu, FOUR, what am I watching? Rayudu dances down and actually attacks the ball. This was inside out and it just goes on the bounce to the boundary.
27.1 Zaman to Rayudu, no run, Rayudu dances down and defends. How nice of him.
Over 27 IND: 149/2(RR 5.52) Bowler: S Malik Sum..: 1 1 1 4 1 1
26.6 Malik to Rayudu, 1 run, another one on the pads and Rayudu doesn't want anything other a single, it seems.
26.5 Malik to Karthik, 1 run, another long hop and Karthik says "I have already hit you for a four, so I'll just take a single this time".
26.4 Malik to Karthik, FOUR, oh my god. A boundary. An actual boundary. STOP THE PRESS. A sweep leads to four runs off one ball. FOUR. A more of this please, DK. 
26.3 Malik to Rayudu, 1 run, another full toss that deserves to be smashed. But Rayudu sweeps and takes just one. How considerate.
26.2 Malik to Karthik, 1 run, on the pads and Karthik just takes a single. ONLY ONE.
26.1 Malik to Rayudu, 1 run, full toss on the pads and Rayudu says "I won't hit you for a boundary. A single will do just fine."
Shoaib Malik is into the attack. India are just delaying the inevitable here
Over 26 IND: 140/2(RR 5.38) Bowler: F Zaman Sum..: 1 . . . 2 .
25.6 Zaman to Karthik, no run, DK dances down and defends. Somewhat counter intuitive you might say.
25.5 Zaman to Karthik, 2 runs, short and wide. Still just a couple and neither batsmen is too bothered about getting the target in quick time.
25.4 Zaman to Karthik, no run, forward defence. Why are they doing this now? Just why
25.3 Zaman to Karthik, no run, DK advances and once again finds the bowler.
