Mudassar Nazar and Ramiz Raja's fifties before Young Pace bowlers Wasim Akram, Mohsin Khan's inspired display and Spinner Tauseef Ahmed's three-wickets helped to Pakistan comprehensive 48-run victory over India in a low-scoring game of the second match of a Rothmans Sharjah Cup.

* India lost their last seven wickets for just 40-runs - which was their second worst seven-wicket collapse in One-day international and it is the worst 7-wicket collapse against Pakistan in ODIs. They went from 115 for 3 to 155 for all out.

* Their previous worst such collapse was seven for 62-runs against Pakistan at Quetta in the last year.

* PAKISTAN comprehensively beat World Champions India by 48 runs in the second one-day international match in the three-nation Sharjah Cup tournament in United Arab Emirates.

* The result means that the Powerful West Indies, who beat Pakistan by seven wickets two days ago, will win the Sharjah Cup trophy, if they beat India in Friday's final game. Should all three countries end up with one win each, the tournament will be decided on the aggregate runs from all games in this tournament.

* After Indian captain, Kapil Dev, put Pakistan into bat Imran Khan's team reached a modest total of 203 for four in the alloted 45 overs - thanks mainly to solid knocks of 67 by Mudassar Nazar, 66 by Rameez Raja and a aggressive unbeaten 37 by former slipper Javed Miandad.

* The Indians, who lost Kris Srikkanth in the 9th over and Mohammad Azharuddin in the 11th, never recovered, Although Sunil Gavaskar contributed a steady 63, and Dilip Vengsarkar scored 27, but the others only offered token resistance.

* India were all out for 145 in 40.4 overs, leaving Pakistan off-spinner Tausfeef Ahmed (picked up 3-wickets) and, medium-pacer Mudassar (took 2-wickets) the heroes.

* Mudassar Nazar was named man of the match award. Fast bowler, Imran, had to leave the field after bowling the first ball of his second over due to a recurrence of his hamstring injury.
