The much-anticipated India vs Pakistan clash in the Asia Cup was reduced to a lopsided affair as Team India marched to a comfortable eight-wicket win over arch rival Pakistan on Wednesday.

After an ordinary day in office against Hong Kong, the Indian bowling unit produced a superlative performance to bowl Pakistan out for a paltry 162 in 43.1 overs, after skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed won the toss and opted to bat first.

During the chase, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma led from the front as he brought up his fastest fifty in ODIs. The opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan put up 86 runs in 13 overs before the captain got dismissed for 52. India raced to the target comfortably in the 29th over, losing just the two openers.

The result was inconsequential as both teams have already qualified for the round-robin Super Four stage following wins in their respective opening group matches against Hong Kong.

India will meet Pakistan again in the Super Four stage on Sunday, 23 September.
