...
That's all we've got for you today. Thanks for joining us, as a happy Indian camp rejoiced taking a significant step towards the Asia Cup final
...
Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma have pummeled Pakistan. Dhawan drove imperiously, Rohit pulled stylishly and together, they broke Mohammad Amir, Hasan Ali and in the end, they broke Sarfaraz Ahmed and Pakistan. It was an exhibition in ODI batting, after an exhibition in death bowling from Jasprit Bumrah, who led the Indian bowlers to restrict Pakistan to 237. 
...
INDIA WIN BY 9 WICKETS WITH 63 BALLS TO SPARE!
...
Just four off that Hasan Ali over. He's had an awful day, going for 52 in his 9 overs, in addition to 41 coming off Amir's 5 overs. 

India 236/1 in 39 overs
...
Another three-run over from Malik. This is getting a bit boring now with the fat lady's throat just about clear now. 

India 232/1 in 38 overs
...
Pakistan never learn. They do say something about insanity being doing the same thing expecting different results right? Pakistan have been that in these two games, with the number of short balls they've bowled to Rohit. The latest one from Hasan is sent soaring over the square-leg boundary.

India 229/1 in 37 overs
...
Three runs off another Malik over. The experienced old hand has conceded just 9 runs in his 3 overs. 

India 221/1 in 36 overs
...
HUNDRED FOR ROHIT SHARMA! His first against Pakistan, his first in the UAE. He savours the moment, as he's virtually put India in the Asia Cup final with this knock. Pakistan gave him reprieves thrice, and he's made them pay
...
On his birthday, Rayudu is just settling in, as he hits a few crisp drives to the fielders in that over, before gliding the last one down to third-man for his first boundary of the day. 7 off the over. 

India 218/1 in 35 overs. 
...
Another tight over from Malik, who goes for only three again. 

India 211/1 in 34 overs
...
Ambati Rayudu walks in at no.3
...
OUT! Dhawan has run himself out, charging down the pitch even as Rohit kept saying no. End of a fabulous knock from India's most consistent ODI player of the last couple of years, not named Virat Kohli. 

Shikhar Dhawan run out 114 (100)

India 210/1 in 33.3 overs
...
Dhawan is enjoying himself, gets to a hundred with a cover drive off Shaheen and then tonks him over the square leg boundary and then smashes him past mid-off, to take 15 runs off that over. 

India 208/0 in 33 overs
...
ONE HUNDRED FOR SHIKHAR DHAWAN! 15th ODI hundred for Gabbar, his second of the tournament. Brilliant knock.
...
7000 ODI runs for Rohit Sharma, who is having a fabulous Asia Cup as skipper. He is loving it. He is the fifth fastest to get to the landmark. 
...
Shoaib Malik comes into the attack. Shoaib Malik, like he always does, troubles the Indians. Just three runs off that over from Pakistan's most experienced bowler. 

India 193/0 in 32 overs
...
...
Two fours for India off that Shaheen Afridi over, one each for Rohit and Dhawan. The skipper enters the 90s and Dhawan moves on to 98. 

India 190/0 in 31 overs
...
Dhawan is into the 90s now. Rohit is not far behind. Shadab is bowling too many long-hops. 

India 179/0 in 30 overs
...
Statgasm: In the last two matches, Pakistan have taken 4 catches while they've dropped SIX
...
Seven off that one from Nawaz. If this was boxing, the referee would have stopped this contest about half an hour ago. Pakistan are an utterly beaten side. Dhawan and Rohit looking good for three-figures. 

India 171/0 in 29 overs
...
The theme of this Indian innings continues. Rohit pulls Shadab for a massive six, and then is dropped by Fakhar Zaman, who drops one that Geoffrey Boycott's nan would've caught with her eyes closed. "Roobish", as Sir Geoffrey would say.

India 164/0 in 28 overs
...
Rohit gets another boundary, with a sweep off Nawaz, who was brought in to the attack for this over. Five runs off that, and India move serenely along. 

India 157/0 in 27 overs
...
Our cricket head Bagawati Prasad thinks Pakistan's saviours here could only be Wasim and Waqar. I tend to believe even they would find it difficult to stop Rohit and Dhawan in this kind of form. 
...
Oh my, Rohit Sharma! Is there a better sight than him in full flow? A six and a four off that Shadab over, which ends up going for 14 runs. 

India 152/0 in 26 overs
...
Another over ends with a boundary off the last ball. Shikhar Dhawan is in full flow, and it is a feast to the eyes now to watch these two at work. Hasan has joined Amir today in being absolutely toothless. 

India 138/0 in 25 overs
...
SIX! Once again, an Amir over that has looked utterly non-threatening. This one is capped off with a firm pull shot from Dhawan that has flown well over the boundary.

India 131/0 in 24 overs
...
Suddenly, something to smile about for Pakistan. Hasan gets Dhawan in trouble with a mix of bouncers and off-cutters. Just one off the over. 

India 120/0 in 23 overs
...
Nine runs off that Amir over, and he's now gone for 30 runs in his 4 overs thus far. Not a happy day for the left-armer who has now gone 206 ODI balls without taking a wicket. 

India 119/0 in 22 overs
...
FIFTY for Rohit Sharma now! India's captain absolutely in control throughout this innings, and has made full use of the early reprieves
...
Amir is back on. How Pakistan need their talisman to put in a big performance!
...
A quiet over at last as Hasan ties Rohit down. The skipper plays four dot balls in a row, as India get just three off it. 

India 110/0 in 21 overs 
...
A boundary and four singles off that Shadab over. Dhawan is motoring along, and Rohit is happy to be playing second-fiddle. 

India 107/0 in 20 overs
...
India bring up their 100, fabulous start from the skipper and his deputy, and their pinning Pakistan down to submission
...
The change in bowling brings no change in fortunes for the men in green. Dhawan slaps Hasan off the back-foot to the mid-wicket boundary off the second ball, and these two continue to rotate strike with ease.

India 99/0 after 19 overs
...
We're back underway, and Pakistan will have Hasan Ali resuming proceedings for them.
...
It's drinks in Dubai, and Pakistan need this break to regroup and try to find ideas to break this partnership. At the moment, things are too easy for Rohit and Dhawan.
...
FIFTY for Shikhar Dhawan! Gets there with an authoritative sweep shot off Shadab, to ruin what was a good over till then. Gabbar has been on fire today, timing the ball sweetly since ball one..

India 91/0 after 18 overs
...
The skipper breaks the shackles with two boundaries of that Nawaz over. The frown on Sarfaraz's face is getting bigger with every passing over, and he seems to be lacking inspiration here. India are cruising along. 

India 85/0 after 17 overs
...
Another quiet over from Shadab, this time. Rohit and Dhawan still look comfortable at the crease, but Pakistan need wickets here, and Sarfaraz isn't helping his bowlers much in that regard. 

India 75/0 after 16 overs
...
That one spun a bit and got the edge off Rohit. A slip in place after a while. Pakistan fielders in the ring have targetted Dhawan twice! Their throws have hit Dhawan instead of the stumps :P

India 72/0 after 15 overs
...
Couple of quiet overs. Pressure still on Pakistan though and they need to make things happen

India 67/0 after 14 overs
...
Nawaz just holds on, he is able to keep the duo quiet but is unable to trouble them.

India 64/0 after 13 overs
...
Begins with an accurate over. But no reward. Dhawan-Rohit march on in their own way working Shadab for ones and twos.

India 62/0 after 12 overs
...
Here is Shadab Khan, finally and beats Dhawan on the outside
...
Another quiet over from Nawaz, Dhawan-Rohit happy to work the left-armer around.

India 57/0 after 11 overs
...
Rohit-Dhawan are making this a habit. 50-run stands are coming in at great consistency. Can they push this and go deep into the innings?
...
Dhawan runs into Amir. Sensational straight drives. Remember Sachin vs Brett Lee - Straight drives - Four cutters dabbed to covers and then two scorching straight drives. Another 50-run stand for Rohit-Dhawan. 

India 53/0 after 10 overs
...
Amir is back. Second spell this and a crucial one for himself personally and for Pakistan. They desperately need a wicket here
...
That's a tidy start from Nawaz. Cramped Dhawan for room and gave away only two runs.

India 45/0 after 9 overs
