Scorecard summary
Pakistan 158/6(20 overs)
India 159/1(17 overs)

Dhoni and Gambhir shake hands before accepting the congratulations from the Pakistan fielders. It wasn't a close game in the end but the packed house seem to enjoy it a lot. Hopefully, we would get similar good crowds for the main tournament. That's it from us. And so the warm-up games are done and dusted with. The real action begins on June 5th. Join us then. Alvida!

Rohit exits the scene after playing a fine hand. He went for the swat-pull but got the top edge. Up she swirled behind midwicket and Ahmed Shezhad ran back.. The ball seemed to fall safely before him but he dived out to hold on to a very good catch. Fine innings comes to an end
