2012-03-18 18:44

Dhaka - India defeated Pakistan by six wickets in the Asia Cup one-day tournament in Dhaka on Sunday.

Virat Kohli smashed a 148-ball 183 as India achieved the stiff 330-run target with 13 balls to spare in the day-night match, the first between the two teams since the World Cup semi-final at Mohali last March.

Pakistan made it to the final despite the defeat, finishing with nine points from three games, while India (eight points from three games) and Bangladesh (four points from two games) are still in contention.

Bangladesh need to win their final league match against Sri Lanka on Tuesday to knock India out.

Nasir Jamshed (112) and Mohammad Hafeez (105) earlier hit centuries as Pakistan scored a challenging 329-6 after electing to bat.

Brief scores:

Pakistan 329-6 in 50 overs; India 330-4 in 47.5 overs
