Sehwag, Gambhir feature in India's 330-8 against Pakistan

Openers Gautam Gambhir and Virendra Sehwag shared a 155-run partnership as India amassed 330 for eight against Pakistan in Tuesday's tri-nation limited-overs international.
Sehwag smashed 89 off 76 balls, including 13 boundaries, and Gambhir stroked a run-a-ball 62 to give India a perfect start after captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and opted to bat first at Dhaka's Shere-Bangla Stadium.
Both were out edging Wahab Riaz to wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal.
Gambhir departed first, but Sehwag continued to torment wayward Pakistani bowlers before being dismissed 11 runs short of a century.
Yuvraj Singh contributed an aggressive 55 off 54 balls containing three sixes and three boundaries before he was caught by Rao Iftikhar from spinner Shahid Afridi's bowling.
Rookie Yusuf Pathan was out for three, a contrast to his brilliant batting in the recent Indian Premier League Twenty20 tournament.
Umar Gul captured three wickets for 61 runs, while Riaz and Afridi took two wickets apiece for Pakistan.
The innings lasted full 50 overs despite a 20-minute interruption by rain.
Pakistan won the series-opening match against Bangladesh by 70 runs on Sunday.
