Virat Kohli struck an unbeaten half-century as India kept their World Twenty20 hopes alive with a six-wicket win over arch rivals Pakistan in Kolkata. Shocked by New Zealand in their opening match, when they failed to chase 127 in Nagpur, the hosts kick-started their campaign by comfortably reeling in a victory target of 119 in a game reduced to 18 overs a side by rain.The result maintained Indias unbeaten record against Pakistan in 50-over World Cups and World T20s.They did not have it all their own way though, slipping to 23 for three after the five-over powerplay, but a 61-run partnership between Kohli and Yuvraj Singh got their side back on track.Despite Yuvraj departing for 24, Kohli steered India home with an unbeaten 55 from 37 deliveries to enhance their chances of qualifying from Group 2 with games against Australia and Bangladesh still to come.The Super-10 match, switched from Dharamsala due to security concerns, was reduced after rain delayed the start by an hour.India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and opted to chase, his bowlers restricting Pakistan to 118 for five on a pitch that turned sharply from the off.Pakistan struggled for fluency until Umar Akmal and Shoaib Malik joined forces in the 12th over, the fourth-wicket pair upping the tempo with a stand of 41 in 24 balls.Openers Sharjeel Khan and Ahmed Shehzad operated cautiously, adding 38 in 7.4 overs until the former mis-timed a pull off Suresh Rainas fourth ball and was well caught by a diving Hardik Pandya at mid-on.Shehzad, having passed 1,000 T20I runs, sliced Jasprit Bumrah to point to depart for 25 and Shahid Afridi, promoted to number three, holed out in the deep off Pandya to leave Pakistan 60 for three. India skipper MS Dhoni reflects on his side’s six-wicket win in the company of Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi But Malik struck 26 from 16 balls, the same amount of deliveries it took Umar to make 22, and the pair both showed intent by crashing the only sixes of the innings in the 14th over, bowled by Pandya.They departed in the space of four balls, Umar edging Ravindra Jadeja behind before Malik top-edged Ashish Nehra to short fine-leg.Indias chase started poorly as after Rohit Sharma skied Mohammad Amir to cover, Shikhar Dhawan and Raina played on to consecutive Mohammad Sami balls.Yuvraj survived the hat-trick delivery and then combined effectively with Kohli, the duo playing themselves in for five overs before starting to cut loose.Kohli swept Malik for four and six in the 11th but after Yuvraj pulled Wahab Riaz for a maximum, he holed out in the deep attempting to repeat the shot.Like he did against Pakistan in the recent Asia Cup, Kohli held the innings together and Dhoni smacked a six and then the winning single to complete victory with 13 balls to spare.Watch highlights of Indias win over Pakistan on Sky Sports 2 at 7pm.

Hi Kerry, Love reading your column and loved watching your analysis on the TSN broadcasts!And were now in Round 2! Bruins! Canadiens! We know all about the great games of the past from the players, the broadcasters and the writers.Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Kyrie Irving and LeBron James combined for 69 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers went into Staples Center and beat the LA Clippers 126-121 on Friday. Irving scored a game-high 37 points, hitting 12-for-18 from the floor and five of his seven 3-point attempts. James continued his strong play since missing a career-high eight straight games with knee and back injuries, tallying 32 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists. Tristan Thompson filled in admirably for the injured Kevin Love, adding 24 points and 12 boards in the spot start. Love missed the game with back spasms. Cleveland, which had lost six in a row before arriving at Staples Center for Thursdays game against the Lakers, has won back-to-back games for the first time since a three-game win streak in mid-December. The Cavs trailed for most of the third quarter and early in the fourth, but flipped the script with seven straight points. Irving started the flurry with a 3 and James capped it with a three-point play. After DeAndre Jordans alley-oop had the Clippers within 104-102, Irving hit another triple to keep them at arms length. The lead grew to 10 points on James well-contested 3 at 4:35. With less than a minute to play and the Cavaliers holding a 119-115 lead, Irving was trapped near midcourt and they were forced to use a timeout. On the ensuing inbounds, James fired a pass to Thompson, who had wiggled free after setting a screen for Irving, at the basket for a layup plus a foul. Thompson made the free throw to make it 122-115. Turnovers on consecutive possessions led to a pair of LA baskets, but Matthew Dellaveedova made two from the stripe with nine seconds to play to secure the win.dddddddddddd Blake Griffin had 34 points and 10 boards, Chris Paul totaled 15 points, 14 assists and eight rebounds and Jordan had 19 points and 12 boards in defeat. The game also marked history, as the Clippers became the first team in league history to have a father coach his son in an NBA game. Austin Rivers, son of coach Doc Rivers, was acquired in a trade from Boston earlier this week. Rivers suited up and played 12 scoreless minutes off the bench, finishing 0- for-4. Irvings 3 early in the third gave the Cavs a 72-71 lead. The Clippers scored the next eight points, prompting Cleveland to use a Hack-A-Jordan strategy, fouling Jordan nearly every trip down the floor and forcing the career 42 percent free throw shooter to prove it from the line. Jordan shot 5-for-12 in the period and the Clips played solid defense on the other end as they built a pair of nine-point leads. Two free throws from Jamal Crawford at 2:53 made it 91-82, but Cleveland pulled to within 95-92 after three. Earlier, Cleveland shot 58.1 percent in the first half but trailed 64-61 at halftime.
