India have beaten Pakistan in Group D of the 2007 Twenty20 World Championship at Kingsmead, Durban, South Africa.

After both teams were tied on 141 runs after 20 overs each, India won the bowl-out 3-0.

India were reduced to 36-4 in the seventh over after some effective bowling from Pakistan. Mohammad Asif caught and bowled Gautam Gambhir in the first over and dismissed Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh and Dinesh Karthik cheaply, finishing with figures of 4-18. Robin Uthappa scored 50 for India before being caught behind. Mahendra Singh Dhoni scored 33 runs, but India were restricted to 141-9 after twenty overs.

In response R P Singh bowled Imran Nazir in the third over of Pakistan's innings. Pakistan lost three wickets in quick succession, when Salman Butt was caught behind on 16 followed by Kamran Akmal run out for 15 and Younis Khan bowled by Irfan Pathan in the next over. Misbah-ul-Haq scored 53 to take Pakistan near victory, and just one run was needed off the last two balls. However Misbah-ul-Haq was run out by Sreesanth off the last ball to leave the scores level.

India won the following bowl-out 3-0. Virender Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh and Robin Uthappa all hit the target for India while Pakistan's Yasir Arafat, Umar Gul and Shahid Afridi missed.

Both teams will proceed to the Super 8 stage of the tournament, while Scotland are eliminated from Group D. India will face England, New Zealand and South Africa in the Super 8s while Pakistan will face Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Australia.
