RECKLESS batting, particularly by the middle
order batsmen, cost India the one-day international against Pakistan in Quetta, first match of their month-long tour India.

After being put in to bat by Sunil Gavaskar, Pakistan made 199 for seven in their 40 overs. India were dismissed for 153 in 37-1 overs.

In view of the lifeless wicket at the Ayub Stadium, Pakistan's score was reasonable but India, World Cup holders, could have achieved their target with prudence.

Khanna, Binny, Gavaskar, Kapil Dev and Amarnath were all out to reckless shots and India lost the match by 46 runs.

Youngsters excel

Zaheer Abbas and Javed Miandad had put on 74 runs for Pakistan's third wicket and two youngsters, Naveed Anjum and Manzoor Elahi, the latter playing his first international match, batted magnificently to add 43 for the fifth wicket.
