2004, July 25, Colombo — After being dropped twice in the slips, Shoaib Malik's dominating 143 took Pakistan to 300 and they won by 59 runs. But the game had a farcical twist with India abandoning the chase halfway and focussing on a target of 241, which would give them a bonus point. With Sachin Tendulkar's laborious 78, they got there off the final ball, with L Balaji and Anil Kumble stealing a bye. The bonus point put India in the final in place of the in-form and more deserving Pakistan. In the final against Sri Lanka, India made a meal of a straightforward chase of 228. [Score] less
