Rohit Sharma (52) and Shikhar Dhawan (46) added 86 runs for the first wicket to give India a spectacular start. Finally, Dinesh Karthik (31 not out) and Ambati Rayudu (31 not out) added 60 runs to help India win.

India has made it to Super Four by staying on top of Group A in this way, where they have to face Pakistan again on Sunday.
