CHENNAI: A steady hundred by Nasir Jamshed and a classic half-century by veteran Younis Khan guided Pakistan to an exciting six-wicket win against India in the first One-day International here at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk on Sunday.
Chasing a modest target of 228, Pakistan were under immense pressure as they lost two early wickets for only 21 runs on the board. Both wickets went to young pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Mohammad Hafeez was bowled on the very first ball of the innings and later Azhar Ali was caught by Rohit Sharma.
However, a 112-run third wicket partnership between Nasir and Younis made the target easy and Pakistan completed the victory in 48.1 overs when Shoaib Malik hit Dinda to boundary.
Younis Khan made 58 off 60 balls. He was caught by Ashwin off Dinda.
Nasir Jamshed remained unbeaten on 101 while Shoaib Malik was 34 not out.
