Mohammad Rizwan hit an attacking 71 and Mohammad Nawaz made a fine all-round contribution as Pakistan defeated India by five wickets in a last-over Super Four thriller at the Asia Cup on Sunday.
Chasing 182 for victory after an impressive half-century by Virat Kohli, Pakistan achieved their target with one ball to spare in Dubai thanks to a key 73-run stand between Rizwan and Mohammad Nawaz (42).
Rizwan was out after his second successive half-century in the 17th over but Khushdil Shah, with his unbeaten 14, and Asif Ali, who made 16 off eight balls, made sure Pakistan got over the line against Arshdeep Singh.
Reprieved after Arshdeep dropped an easy catch at short third man, Asif hit a six and two fours before falling with two balls left, leaving Iftikhar Ahmed to knock off the remaining two runs
