Pakistan beat rivals India by 54 runs in their ICC Champions Trophy Group A game at Centurion on Saturday.

The key to Pakistan's victory was an incredible 206-run fourth wicket partnership between Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Yousuf which provided the platform for an imposing total of 302 for 9.

India kept up with the required run rate until the final 15 overs but couldn't find a match-winning partnership and ran out of wickets with just over five overs remaining.

The victory puts Pakistan top of Group A with two wins from two matches.
