India Wins Semi-Final World Cup Cricket Match Against Pakistan

India has won bragging rights over Pakistan after beating its arch-rival on the cricket field and advancing to the World Cup final match against Sri Lanka set for Saturday.

Life for more than a billion people across India and Pakistan came to a standstill during the semi-final match Wednesday. India beat Pakistan by 29 runs, 260 to 231.

Pakistan, chasing 261 for victory, were dismissed for 231 with a ball to spare in a match that had assumed huge political as well as sporting significance in the build-up. Misbah-ul-Haq, who top-scored for Pakistan with 56, helped take them from 208 for nine to a situation where an unlikely 30 was needed off the last over.

But Zaheer Khan held his nerve, bowling four dot balls before Misbah holed out to Virat Kohli to the delight of a capacity crowd. India's 260 for nine against their arch-rivals was built around man-of-the-match Tendulkar's 85. But they might have made considerably less had not the star batsman been dropped four times in an innings that still left him one short of a hundred international hundreds. Left-arm fast bowler Wahab Riaz led Pakistan's attack with career-best figures of five for 46. India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who won the toss and batted, said it was important to treat the slowing PCA Stadium pitch with respect.

"We got off to a fantastic start through Virender Sehwag and Sachin (48 runs in 5.5 overs) but as the game progressed the wicket got slower, and in the middle overs it was difficult to score," said Dhoni. "It was important to just play the bowling with respect. 260 was a good score for this pitch. It was turning."

Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi admitted his team had missed their chances to dismiss Tendulkar who was dropped on 27, 45, 70 and 81 in a butter-fingered fielding performance.

While some companies are considering half- or full-day leave for employees on the day of the match, others have installed TV screens across office premises or made arrangements for special screening of the match to ensure employees get the pulse of the cricketing ties between the two nations that have fought three wars since independence.
