Cape Town - India managed to defend a low total and win the final one-day-international against Pakistan by 10 runs in Delhi on Sunday.

Batting first, the hosts could only muster 167 runs before being bowled out in the 44th over. Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was against their best batsman with 36 runs from 55 balls, while off-spinner Saeed Ajmal (5 for 24) was the main destroyer-in-chief for the Pakistanis.

However, in their reply, Pakistan were bowled out for 157 in the 49th over at a chilly Feroz Shah Kotla stadium.
