Reported earlier: Indian cricket fans will be praying for a Sri Lankan victory when they take on hosts Bangladesh today in their last league match, the result of which will determine India's fate in the Asia Cup cricket tournament. Virat Kohli smashed a blistering 183 off 148 balls as India produced their highest ever run chase to beat Pakistan by six wickets on Sunday.

Asia Cup: Pakistan vs India
Virat Kohli spearheads India's highest-ever run chase in ODIs, beat Pakistan by 6 wickets
March 18, 2012Chasing a huge target of 330 to win, India rode on Virat Kohli’s career-best 183 to reach the target in 47.5 overs losing only 4 wickets. He clobbered 183 off 148 balls with the help of 22 boundaries and a six, to help India register their highest-ever run chase in one-day cricket.
Virat Kohli and Tendulkar (52 off 48) added 133 runs for the second wicket after they lost opener Gautam Gambhir in the very first over of the game. Kohli later added 172 runs for the third wicket with Rohit Sharma (68 off 83). For Pakistan, openers Hafeez and Nasir Jamshed smashed centuries as Pakistan reached a formidable 329-6 after winning the toss. Pakistan didn't lose a wicket until the 36th over, with the team on 224-1. Dhoni used eight bowlers, Ashok Dinda finishing with figures of 2-47, and Praveen Kumar taking two wickets for 77 runs.
If Bangladesh beat Sri Lanka on Tuesday, then the hosts will go through to the final. Else, India will meet Pakistan.
Reported earlier: The sub-continental rivals gear up for a vital clash in the Asia Cup at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Sunday, in which India has to defeat Pakistan to stay alive in the tournament. For Pakistan the encounter is a chance for them to avenge the World Cup semi-final defeat in Mohali (by 29 runs) on Mar 30, 2011, their last meeting. In the 2010 Asia cup too, Pakistan lost to India (by 3 wickets).
Asia Cup Match 5: India 330/4 in 47.5 (Sachin 52, Kohli 183, Rohit 68) beat Pakistan 329/6 in 50 ov (Mohammad Hafeez 105, Nasir Jamshed 112) by 6 wickets
Asia Cup: India vs Bangladesh
Bangladesh beat India by 5 wickets despite Sachin scoring his 100th hundred.
March 16, 2012Sachin Tendulkar scored his 100th international century on Friday against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup encounter at Mirpur, Dhaka. The 38-year-old completed his landmark century, his 49th in one-day cricket, in 138 balls. The right-hander, who holds the record for scoring the most Test and one-day runs, has also scored 51 Test tons.
India, who batted first were able to get a respectable score of 283 at the loss of 5 wickets. The Little Master's much awaited 100th hundred was definitely the highlight of the Indian innings. Virat Kohli's 66 and Raina's 51 also contributed to the total. The Bangladesh innings hit a bump when they lost opener Nazimuddin in the 4th over, but the rest of the line-up held up leading Bangladesh to their first win against India in 5 years. Though Tamim Iqbal was the top-scorer, it was some splendid batting by Shakib Al Hasan (49 off 31 balls) and Mushfiqur Rahim (46 off 25 balls, not out) that helped Bangladesh pull off this huge upset.
The next match is the highly anticipated India - Pakistan clash which will take place on March 18th. The two rivals haven't played against each other in more than a year. India need a win against Pakistan to get into the Asia Cup final, especially after this unexpected loss to Bangladesh today.
Asia Cup Match 4: Bangladesh 293/5 in 49.2 ov (Tamim Iqbal 70, Kumar 3-56) beat India 289/5 in 50 ovs (Tendulkar 114, Kohli 66, Raina 51)
Asia Cup: Pakistan vs Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka out of Asia Cup after losing to Pakistan
March 15, 2012Sri Lanka, who needed a win to keep their hopes of reaching the final alive, played poor shots and threw their wickets away as Pakistan picked up the last six for just 27 runs at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium on Wednesday. Chasing a modest victory target of 188 runs, Pakistan batted sensibly after losing three quick wickets. They were tottering at 33/3 at one stage, but skipper Misbahul Haq (76 not out off 93 balls) and young Umar Akmal (77 off 72 balls) halted further loss and steadied the innings with a 153-runs fourth wicket partnership.
If India beat Bangladesh on Thursday, fans can look forward to two India-Pakistan games, the round-robin match on Sunday and then the final on Thursday.
Asia Cup Match 3: Pakistan 189/4 in 39.5 ovs (Misbah-ul-Haq 72, Umar Akmal 77) beat Sri Lanka 188 in 45.4 (Sangakkara 71, Tharanga 57, Cheema 4-43) by 6 wickets

Earlier Gautham Gambhir (100) and Kohli (108) put on a 205-run partnership for the second wicket after India lost Sachin for just 6. It was Kohli's 10th ODI ton in just his 80th innings, which obliterated the previous record of 99 innings set by Gordon Greenidge.
The defending champions ended up with 304 for 3 wickets in their 50 overs with the help of some lusty hits by captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (46* off 26 balls) and Suresh Raina (30* off 17 balls) in the slog overs.
Asia Cup Match 2: India 304/3 in 50 ov (Gambhir 100, Kohli 108) beat Sri Lanka 254 in 45.1 ovs (Sangakkara 65, Jayawardene 78) by 50 runs

Asia Cup squad: Sehwag dropped from Indian Team
Umesh, Zaheer rested, Sachin Tendulkar in Asia Cup squad
February 29, 2012The 15-member squad for the Asia Cup announced on Wednesday did not feature Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan and Umesh Yadav. The Board for Control of Cricket in India said Sehwag has been rested on fitness grounds, but there are reports that this is a fallout from the Dhoni vs Sehwag spat. Selection committee chairman Krishnamachari Srikkanth however told the reporters that opener Virender Sehwag and pace spearhead Zaheer Khan were not dropped and have been "rested purely on fitness ground". Besides the two, young pacer Umesh Yadav has also been left out of the team because of injury concern. Tendulkar, who made 143 runs in 7 matches in Australia, with a best of 48 has been stuck on 99 international centuries since March 12, 2011. He will get chance to reach the unprecedented landmark in Bangladesh.
India Squad: MS Dhoni (Captain), Virat Kohli (Vice-Captain), Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, R Ashwin, Praveen Kumar, Ravindra Jadeja, R Vinay, Rahul Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, Irfan Pathan, Ashok Dinda.

ICC World Cup Match 1, India v Bangladesh, Group B - Preview
Feb 19, 2011India takes on Bangladesh in the 2011 World Cup opener on Saturday in Dhaka's Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium with a chance to exact revenge for a shock loss in the previous edition four years ago which ensured India's early exit in the first round of the 2007 tournament in the Caribbean. On paper, the day-night clash may look like a no-contest with tournament favourites India having won 20 of their 22 one-day matches against the Tigers.
India have enjoyed an impressive run over the last three years, which has taken Dhoni's men to the top of the Test rankings and made them number two behind Australia in the one-dayers. With Sehwag, Sachin, Gambhir and Yuvraj Singh adding to a top-heavy line-up and Dhoni and the explosive Yusuf Pathan coming down the order, Harbhajan Singh has been pushed to number eight despite two Test centuries to his credit.

India knocked off the two runs required to raise a comprehensive 10-wicket victory with a full day and close to two sessions to spare.
Zaheer Khan won both the man of the match and the man of the series awards. With this win, the Indians made a clean-sweep of the series, winning it 2-0 after also winning both their ODIs against Bangladesh in the tri-series earlier.

January 26, 2010Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (89) struck a half century as India declared their first innings at 544 for eight at lunch on the third day. Dhoni got good support from Ishant Sharma (13) and the duo added 51 runs for the seventh wicket. After Ishant's dismissal, Dhoni and Pragyan Ojha (1) scored 26 runs. Yuvraj Singh didn't bat due to a ligament tear in his left wrist, and has been ruled out for the rest of the ongoing second Test.
India's lead of 311 was reduced to 84 as Tamim hit a brisk 151 and was involved in a 200-run stand with Junaid Siddique (55). The stand between Iqbal and Siddique is the highest ever for Bangladesh for any wicket. At stumps, Bangladesh were 228 for three.

Gautam Gambhir (68) missed out on equalling Sir Don Bradman's record of six 100s in consecutive Test matches, but equalled the record for most consecutive half-centuries in Tests - 11, with Viv Richards. He and Virender Sehwag (56) put on 103 for the opening wicket before Tendulkar and Dravid consolidated their team's position with a 222-run stand for the third wicket. In doing so, they registered the world record for most century partnerships by any pair in Test Cricket. They now have seventeen 100-plus partnerships, one more than the Australian pair of Mathew Hayden and Ricky Ponting and West Indians Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes.

January 18, 2010Sachin Tendulkar's 44th Test century (105*), helped India to reach a first-innings total of 243 as the tourists struggled against the inspired form of Bangladesh attack duo Shahadat Hossain and Shakib Al Hasan, who each completed five-wicket hauls.
Bangladesh came out to bat for 4 overs before the lunch break and stamped their authority on the game even further racing to 21. However, the last three overs before what turned out to be the close of play yielded a wicket each. Yesterday, starting from the 15th over, India lost three wickets for six runs, today, Bangladesh lost three for five.

January 17, 2010Sachin Tendulkar (77*), playing his 266th innings in Test cricket - most by any batsman, hit his 55th Test half-century, and also became the first to cross 13,000 runs in Tests, saved the day for India after Shahadat Hossain (4/51) and Shakib Al Hasan (4/52) mowed down the top and middle order for Bangladesh in the first cricket Test in Chittagong. Captain Sehwag had earlier derided the hosts as an ordinary side, questioning their ability to take 20 wickets.
The Indians got off to a flying start, with an opening partnership of 79 runs in just 15 overs from Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir (23), before losing six wickets in the post-lunch session.
In 162 Tests, Tendulkar has scored at an average of 54.72 with 43 centuries. In 440 ODIs, Tendulkar has amassed 17,394 runs with 45 tons and 93 half-centuries. He is the highest scorer in both Tests and ODIs.

Dhoni to miss first Test against Bangladesh
January 16, 2010Mahendra Singh Dhoni has again been ruled out of a Test match because of back spasms, and Virender Sehwag will be leading the newly crowned number one test team. Sehwag, meanwhile, angered the hosts by terming the tigers as an “ordinary side” adding they do not have the bowling power to take 20 Indian Test wickets. India's batting has been reinforced with the return of veterans Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Venkatsai Laxman.
In reply, Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan said that his team is capable of giving a good fight. He added, "India have been ranked number one only recently. I think South Africa and Australia are much better than them."
Match starts at 9 am IST.
Bangladesh: Shakib Al Hasan (Captain), Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Junaid Siddique, Mohammad Ashraful, Raqibul Hossain, Mohammad Mahmudullah, Shahriar Nafees, Shahadat Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Enamul Hossain, Mahbubul Alam, Shafiul Islam.

IND v BAN, Asia Cup 2008: Raina shines again as India humble Bangladesh by seven wickets
June 28, 2008In-form Suresh Raina smashed his second century of the competition with a classy unbeaten 116 to lead India to a comfortable seven-wicket victory over Bangladesh in a super four match of the Asia Cup at the National Stadium in Karachi on Saturday.
Opener Gautam Gambhir pitched in with a strokeful 90 off 84 balls in the top order to set up the stage for Raina who hit 11 sixes and three fours in his 107-ball innings. The superb batting by the two Indian left handers overshadowed a spectacular 115 runs from Alok Kapali who hit his maiden century to steer Bangladesh to their highest total of 283 for six against India.
India finished on a convincing 284 for three in 43.2 overs with Raina hitting the winning run, a single off Abdur Razzak, despite resting Virender Sehwag, Praveen Kumar and Piyush Chawla. It was India's fourth straight win in the six-nation competition and it brought them closer to a place in the final as they now have four points in the super league stage having carried over two from the qualifying round.
Raina, who has been in excellent form in the competition, followed up his scores of 101 (against Hong Kong) and 84 (against Pakistan) with an unbeaten 116 from 107 balls reaching his second career hundred by glancing spinner Abdul Razzak for a boundary in the 40th over. Raina and Gambhir put on a spectacular 139 from 133 balls for the third wicket while the centurion teamed up for an unbeaten stand of 89 from 70 balls with Yuvraj Singh (36) to finish off the match.
Raina's 100 from 93 balls included 10 fours and two sixes while Gambhir stroked 10 fours and one six in his 84-ball innings.

IND vs PAK, Tri Series, Final: Pakistan beat India in tri-series cricket final
June 14, 2008Umer Gul took four wickets as Pakistan avenged its lopsided defeat in the league round with a 25-run victory over India in Saturday's final of the limited-overs tri-series.
Salman Butt and Younis Khan scored centuries and shared a 205-run second-wicket stand to guide Pakistan to 315 for three and then Gul and the bowlers did the rest, dismissing India for 290 in the penultimate over at Dhaka's Sher-e-Bangla National stadium. India, which beat Bangladesh in its first match and Pakistan by 140 runs on Thursday, struggled early in the reply after losing opener Virendra Sehwag (2) in the second over.
Gautam Gambhir scored 40 before he was caught by substitute fielder Nasir Jamshed of a Gul delivery. Rohit Sharma (24), Yusuf Pathan (25) and Suresh Raina (24) failed to convert starts into a big innings and allrounder Shahid Afridi ended the innings of both of India's top scorers.
India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni hit a defiant 64 until he was out in the 48th over, caught by Jamshed off Afridi's bowling. Afridi had earlier dismissed Yuvraj Singh for 56 and returned 2-56 from 9.2 overs. Gul, who also bowled out Piyush Chawla (2) and trapped Praveen Kumar (5) lbw, finished with 4-57 in nine overs.
"It's a big victory, a final and that against India," Gul said. "It was a do or die battle for us." Pakistan started positively after winning the toss. Butt made the most of an early reprieve — dropped at short cover in the 11th over — to hit 10 boundaries in his 129 before retiring hurt near the end of the innings. "It was a perfect team job and it could not have been scripted better," Butt said. "I won an important game for my country, nothing gets better."
Khan stroked seven boundaries and three sixes, scoring 108 off 99 balls before he was caught by Sehwag off an Ishant Sharma delivery. It was a surprising loss for India, which won a recent series in Australia against the World Cup holders and is third in the ODI world rankings.
