Scorecard

The result didn't matter - India have already qualified for the Asia Cup final. But their dream run in the Asia Cup continued as they registered their fourth successive win, beating Pakistan by a whopping 103-run margin in the final league match at Jaipur. In an inconsequential match for either team, Pakistan crawled to 141 for 8 in their chase of 245 after being restricted by the Indian spinners.

Sunetra Paranjpe and Rumeli Dhar were the main contributors in India's innings. Paranjpe got the team off to a good start, adding 83 with opener Sulakshana Naik. Paranjpe's 52 came off 67 balls with ten fours before falling to Sana Mir, who picked up three wickets. Dhar, who scored 42, took control in the middle of the innings while a quickfire 31-ball 30 from Anjum Chopra lifted India to 244.

Pakistan struggled in their chase after opener after Urooj Mumtaz was dismissed for 33 with the score on 62. The spinners - Rajeshwari Goel, Nooshin Al Khadeer and Preeti Dimri - came into play and put the brakes on the scoring. Goel was especially hard to get away, conceding just 12 runs off 10 overs, picking up two wickets in the process.

India and Sri Lanka have already qualified for the finals, which will be played on the same venue on Thursday.
