India’s bowling unit restricted Pakistan for a meagre 162 in 43.1 overs before skipper Rohit Sharma (52 off 39 balls) and Shikhar Dhawan (46 off 54 balls) added 86 for the opening wicket to ensure a smooth chase for their side in only 29 overs. This was India’s most comprehensive victory in terms of balls remaining (126).
