Asia Cup 2016, Match 4: India vs Pakistan - As it happened...
In a bowlers dominated. low-scoring match, Virat Kohli played a gem of an innings to guide India home.
Over 15 || Score 80/5 (Yuvraj 14; Dhoni 3); Target 84
A twist in the tale! Mohammed Sami returned to remove both Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya in the same over. Kohli, who was on course to make a fifty, was wrongly adjudged LBW. He edged, but umpire thought otherwise.
WICKET: Virat Kohli lbw b Mohammad Sami 49 (51b)
Then, newly arrived Pandya failed to control his shot of a crossed-seam delivery from Sami. Caught at first slip after some juggling act.

MS Dhoni arrived in the centre.
Over 11 || Score 58/3 (Kohli 34; Yuvraj 11); Target 84
Long over. Wahab Riaz started with a front foot no-ball. Yuvraj Singh failed to capitalise from the free-hit. The Punjab batsman finally took a single of the penultimate delivery, then Kohli retained the strike with another single.
India need 26 runs from 54 balls.
Over 10 || Score 53/3 (Kohli 32; Yuvraj 10); Target 84
Shahid Afridi brought back Mohammad Sami into the attack. The 10th over started with a couple with Yuvraj Singh playing towards the square leg. Then Virat Kohli consumed three deliveries before playing a cover drive for a single.
The over finished with a well directed bouncer to Yuvi.
Kohli and Yuvi have stitched a 45-run partnership in 7.2 overs.
Over 9 || Score 50/3 (Kohli 29; Yuvraj 10); Target 84
Virat Kohli welcomed dangerous Wahab Riaz with a four, through the covers. A couple followed, on the leg side, before another four through the same cover area.
Little early to say, but Kohli has taken the match from Pakistan. Yuvraj, then, found his second four with a well timed four with a flick.
15 runs from the over.
Over 8 || Score 35/3 (Kohli 18; Yuvraj 6); Target 84
Yuvraj Singh, along with Virat Kohli, has somehow steadied India's innings. Le1ving the good balls.
In between, Pakistan fielders are fired up all the more with each run saved. And Shahid Afridi has managed to place fielders in just the right areas.
But there was a four, a lucky boundary, once again from the blade of Kohli through the slip cordon. He retained the strike with a leg-bye.
Over 6 || Score 29/3 (Kohli 14; Yuvraj 5); Target 84
Lucky Virat Kolhi just got another life, and a four. He hanged the ball for a while in the air, but it raced for a four through the square leg area. It was followed by a classic Kohli cover drive. No chance for the fielders. Eight runs from it.
And with that Mohammed Aamir also finished his spell. Figures read: 4-0-18-3.
