Pakistan defeated India by one wicket in a thrilling one-day cricket international in Dhaka on Sunday to virtually knock the reigning World Cup champions out of contention in the Asia Cup.

Pakistan, who restricted India to 245-8, survived anxious moments before Shahid Afridi smashed two consecutive sixes to help his team win with two balls to spare at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium in Dhaka.

India, who have lost two of their three matches, are unlikely to make the March 8 final even if they beat Afghanistan in their last match.
