Pakistan were once again short of a fighting total as they managed 237/7 in their 50 overs despite an attractive half-century by Shoaib Malik.

Rohit Sharma finished with 111 not out, while Shikhar Dhawan made 114.
India continued their power run through the Asia Cup to beat Pakistan by nine wickets during their Super Four match-up.
