Pakistan won by 5 wickets (with 2 balls remaining)
25 December 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Shahid Afridi to Rahane, OUT, Rahane is gone, got a little too predictable, targetted extra cover again, lofted the full delivery cleanly, but there was a man in the deep there, straight to him

AM Rahane c Umar Akmal b Shahid Afridi 42 (43m 31b 5x4 1x6) SR: 135.48

India 77/1   G Gambhir 33* (34b 1x4 1x6)   Shahid Afridi 1.5-0-12-1

Shahid Afridi to Gambhir, 1 run, OUT, Gambhir is hitting it really hard now, but he might be in trouble this time, slogs it in front of square leg, the throw comes in, Gambhir comes back for the second, but his dive cannot beat the throw, Kamran Akmal does the remainder of the job

G Gambhir run out 43 (56m 41b 2x4 1x6) SR: 104.87

India 90/2   V Kohli 3* (4b)   Shahid Afridi 2.4-0-20-1

Mohammad Irfan to Kohli, OUT, appeal for caught behind, and he is given, Kohli falls to his third successive wild swing, given for an underedge through to the keeper off the short of a length ball

V Kohli c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Irfan 9 (15m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 81.81

India 103/3   Yuvraj Singh 7* (4b 1x6)   Mohammad Irfan 3.3-0-20-1

Saeed Ajmal to Dhoni, OUT, and MS Dhoni is gone now, tame dismissal, he was on the back foot, trying to play his flailing punch through extra cover, plays outside the line, and the ball spins in a bit to graze the off stump enough to disturb a bail

MS Dhoni b Saeed Ajmal 1 (7m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

India 108/4   Yuvraj Singh 9* (6b 1x6)   Saeed Ajmal 2.1-0-15-1

Umar Gul to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, shortish, and the sound of bat hitting ball gives it away, Yuvraj hasn't timed the pull at all, it sails tamely to deep midwicket, Gul raises his arms, it was the slow offcutter

Yuvraj Singh c Umar Akmal b Umar Gul 10 (21m 9b 0x4 1x6) SR: 111.11

India 115/5   SK Raina 5* (4b 1x4)   Umar Gul 1.2-0-13-1

Saeed Ajmal to Raina, OUT, gone, Ajmal strikes again, short of a length delivery makes Raina have a wild heave, he misses as the ball skids in, stays a touch low, and uproots leg stump, Ajmal punches the air, what a star

SK Raina b Saeed Ajmal 10 (11m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 111.11

India 122/6   RG Sharma 2* (2b)   Saeed Ajmal 3.3-0-23-2

Saeed Ajmal to Jadeja, 1 run, OUT, wow, now Rohit is run out by several feet, no way there was a second run there, it was nudged towards midwicket, and to Rohit's dismay, there was a direct hit as well

RG Sharma run out 2 (8m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

India 123/7   RA Jadeja 1* (1b)   Saeed Ajmal 3.4-0-24-2

Umar Gul to Jadeja, OUT, they keep going, sharp bounce from Gul just outside off, Jadeja tries to steer it on his toes, and gets an edge through to the keeper

RA Jadeja c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 2 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

India 124/8   B Kumar 0* (0b)   Umar Gul 2.1-0-19-2

Umar Gul to I Sharma, OUT, and he is cleaned up by the Guldozer's yorker, this is like the Pakistan of old, and also, like the India of old, yorker on target, Ishant's bat comes down in another time zone, and in real time, the leg stump is flattened

I Sharma b Umar Gul 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 124/9   B Kumar 0* (0b)   Umar Gul 2.2-0-19-3
