4th ODI: Pakistan v India, 21 Mar 2004

After Pakistan had chosen to bat, it could hardly have gone better for India. Irfan Pathan has rapidly becoming the man who provides his side with early breakthroughs, and he did so again at Lahore. First he had the always-dangerous Shahid Afridi caught by Yuvraj Singh, and then he trapped Yousuf Youhana leg-before with a cannily directed, late-swinging delivery. Youhana's torrid time of it in the series continued, and Pathan's exultant time of it did too.
