Pak name squad to face India in Abu Dhabi ties

Pakistan have included uncapped spin bowler Abdul Rahman in a 14-man squad for two one-day matches against India in Abu Dhabi later this month. Slow left-armer Rahman was also chosen for a recent series in Sri Lanka but is still waiting to make his debut.
The games on April 18 and 19 are the first in a plan to take cricket to countries with large expatriate populations. And money from the first will be donated to the Kashmir earthquake relief appeal fund. We will donate 75 per cent of the earnings of the first match for the Pakistani earthquake victims and 25 per cent will go to those affected by the quake in India, said the Pakistan Cricket Board official, Mr Asad Mustafa.
The matches will also give Inzamam-ul-Haqs side a chance to gain a measure of revenge after losing 4-1 to India in a home one-day series earlier this year. Pakistan squad: Inzamam-ul-Haq (Captain), Younis Khan, Mohammad Yousuf, Imran Farhat, Faisal Iqbal, Shoaib Malik, Shahid Afridi, Abdul Razzaq, Mohammad Asif, Kamran Akmal, Rao Iftikhar, Rana Naved, Danish Kaneria, Abdul Rahman.

India vs Pakistan Second ODI News

India wins toss, bats again at Abudhabi

India won the toss and chose to bat first against arch-rivals Pakistan for the second day running in Abu Dhabi, looking to overturn Tuesday's defeat.
India made one change, bringing opener Virender Sehwag in for Robin Uthappa. Pakistan remained unchanged.

India win to tie Pakistan series

Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq's battling 79 could not prevent India from winning by 51 runs and squaring their one-day series in Abu Dhabi. Virender Sehwag returned to form with 72 and Rahul Dravid hit a composed 92 as India posted 269-5 off 50 overs.
Apart from Shoaib Malik (46) and Rana Naved-ul-Hasan (27) there was little other support for Inzamam as Pakistan were bowled out for 218 in 45.2 overs. Irfan Pathan and Ramesh Powar both finished with three wickets apiece.
It was perfect revenge for the Indians, who were outplayed in Tuesday's opener, as Sehwag bounced back from his poor run with 10 fours and a six in his 83-ball knock.
