India posted their biggest ODI win over arch-rivals Pakistan with a 140-run victory in their triangular series match.
After scoring 330 for eight, India dismissed Pakistan for 190 to end their 12-match winning streak. India's previous highest victory over Pakistan was their 87-run win three years ago.
Gautam Gambhir (62), Virender Sehwag (89) and Yuvral Singh (55), the top three in the order, scored the majority of India's runs.

Sehwag hit a six and 13 boundaries from 76 balls and Gambhir six fours from 62 balls while Singh faced 54 balls, hitting three sixes and three fours.
Pace bowler Praveen Kumar (four for 53) and 19-year-old leg-spinner Piyush Chawla (four for 40) bundled out Pakistan with 14.2 overs to spare.
Captain Shoaib Malik who scored 53, his 28th one-day half-century, was Pakistan's only successful batsman.

IND vs PAK, Tri Series, Match 2: India looks to break Pakistan's winning streak

Mahendra Singh Dhoni led Team India has virtually captured every frontier in the recent past with Australia being its latest victim while arch-rival Pakistan is eager to extend its 12-match winning streak when the two sides lock horns in the second match of the tri-series.
Pakistan drubbed minnows Bangladesh by 70 runs here yesterday and its coach Geoff Lawson believes his team is capable of forcing India to surrender and that too by a bigger margin.
However, Lawson's Indian counterpart Gary Kirsten says his team is confident and its good run will continue the way it has in the recent past. Pakistan team, which is on a roll after winning 12 successive matches has its tails up. Its winning spree which started against India was followed by 11 wins but all of them came against minnows Bangladesh (6) and Zimbabwe (5).
Dhoni's boys would be eager to settle scores but a long 44-day Twenty20 tournament in IPL did not give them any breathing space before the triangular series here.
While Pakistani players were a sure shot flop in the recently concluded IPL, Sohail Tanvir stood out with his exceptional bowling efforts in the tournament and emerged the highest wicket-taker. His team would look up to him to provide some early wickets. In his side's victory against Bangladesh, Lawson was particularly pleased with an out-of-form Shahid Afridi's all-round effort. Afridi scored 20 runs off 17 balls and was spinning the bowl a great deal as he picked up three wickets in his eight overs conceding a mere 19 runs. India team (from): Mahendra Singh Dhoni (cap, wk), Yuvraj Singh, Virender Sehwag, Rohit Sharma, Robin Uthappa, Yusuf Pathan, Piyush Chawla, Praveen Kumar, Irfan Pathan, Ishant Sharma, Gautam Gambhir.
Pakistan team (from): Salman Butt, Kamran Akmal (Wicket Keeper), Younis Khan, Mohammad Yousuf, Misbah-ul-Haq, Shoaib Malik (Captain), Shahid Afridi, Fawad Alam, Wahab Riaz, Sohail Tanvir, Umar Gul.
