Pakistan v India: Over by over
Latest: India 276-4 (45.4 overs) beat Pakistan 273-7 by 6 wickets

India maintain their dominance over Pakistan in World Cup matches as an innings of 98 by Sachin Tendulkar helps them to a magnificent victory.

He is eventually dismissed by Shoaib Akhtar, but it is the the Pakistan paceman's sole success as he concedes seven runs per over.

Yuvraj Singh and Rahul Dravid complete the formalities with an unbroken fifth wicket stand of 99.

45th over: Dravid greets Razzaq's return with a meaty pull but substitute fielder Sami dives full length at mid-wicket to keep him to a single. Dravid tries to steal another to midd-off off the final ball but is sent back by his partner.

44th over: Wasim continues to charge in but there is little hope for his side with Dravid and Yuvraj in complete control of the situation.

38th over: Razzaq returns to the attack with the job of breaking the partnership, which has exceeded 50. But the over goes for six runs.

27th over: Dravid and Tendulkar rotate the strike to take five runs off Afridi's over.

32nd over: Sehwag comes into the attack with India starting to look bereft of bowling options.

31st over: Anwar strains hard to take two runs, chancing Mongia's arm in the deep and just making his ground. Zaheer rather loses his way and bowls two wides in a row.
