Scorecard
Mahendra Dhoni's superb unbeaten 119 carried India A to victory over their Pakistani counterparts, in the eighth match of the ongoing tournament in Nairobi.
After winning the toss and batting first, Pakistan were bowled out for 234 with more than three overs remaining, despite a century for the captain, Misbah-ul-Haq, and 87 for Bazid Khan.
The pair added 189 for the third wicket, after Amit Bhandari had ripped out both openers, but when Khan was run out, the innings subsided dramatically. Shib Shankar Paul and Sairaj Bahutule shared 7 wickets, as Pakistan's last seven wickets tumbled for eight runs in four overs.
Despite Dheeraj Jadhav's second-ball run-out, the momentum was all with India, and Dhoni allowed Pakistan no way back. He added 169 for the second wicket with Gautam Gambhir (79), before Sridharan Sriram joined him to wrap up the proceedings.
