India beat Pakistan in 4th ODI, clinches series

GWALIOR :India’s wait for a One-day series triumph over Pakistan on home soil ended tonight after 24 long years as they thrashed their archrivals by six wickets to take an invincible 3-1 lead in the five-match series.

Chasing a competitive 256 for victory, the Indians overhauled the target comfortably with 21 balls to spare in a floodlit encounter which saw Sachin Tendulkar (97) missing a century for the sixth time this year.

The jinx of the 42nd century continued to haunt the master batsman who laid the foundation for the run chase but again fell agonisingly short of the three-figure mark.

It was a commanding display by the hosts who not only bowled well to restrict Pakistan to 255 for 6 but also chased down the target without much fuss at the fully packed Captain Roop Singh Stadium.
