Round-robin stage

Afridi does it for Pakistan, India out

Shahid Afridi clubbed two big sixes of Ashwin to take Pakistan to a one-wicket win after needing 10 to win in the last over. Chasing India's 245/8, Pakistan needed nine runs off the last four balls after losing their way from a seemingly winning position to slump from 200/4 to 236/9 at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium. After running out Maqsood in the 45th over, Afridi partnered with Umar Gul for 32 runs off only 23 balls to swing the match back in Pakistan's favour.

Earlier, fifties by Rohit Sharma (56), Ambati Rayudu (58) and Ravindra Jadeja (52 not out) had helped India to 245/8 from their 50 overs. Defending champions Pakistan now top the table with two wins from three games, and look favourites to contest the final with unbeaten Sri Lanka.

India face Pakistan in do-or-die clash

Since the 2011 World Cup semi-final in Mohali, there have been just five Indo-Pak ODIs. India beat Pakistan in their last meeting at the ICC Champions Trophy in England last year and hold a 5-4 head-to-head record in Asia Cup matches. With back-to-back victories over Pakistan and India, Sri Lanka have virtually assured themselves of a berth in the final of the Asia Cup, and now it's a two-way battle between the traditional rivals to be the other finalists in the five-nation tournament. The match between India and defending champions Pakistan starts at 14:00 IST.

India Probable XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma / Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (Captain), Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik (Wicket Keeper), Ravindra Jadeja, Stuart Binny, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami
Pakistan Probable XI: Sharjeel Khan, Ahmed Shehzad, Mohammad Hafeez, Sohaib Maqsood, Misbah-ul-Haq (Captain), Umar Akmal (Wicket Keeper), Shahid Afridi, Anwar Ali, Umar Gul, Saeed Ajmal, Junaid Khan
