India go up 2-1 against Pakistan despite Salman Butt’s century

India clinched a 46-run win in the third one-day international against Pakistan on Sunday, despite a career-best 129 from Salman Butt, to take a 2-1 lead in the five-game series. Left-handed batsman Yuvraj Singh underlined his form with a neatly paced 77 to help lift India to 294 for six before Pakistan were bowled out for 248 in 47.2 overs on a slow turning track.

The 23-year-old Butt made a valiant bid after reaching his fourth one-day hundred, all against India, after Pakistan lost the explosive Shahid Afridi (12), who returned as opener, and Younis Khan (21), who hit a match-winning 117 in the last game. The turning point came with the dismisal of Misbah-ul-Haq followed by the unfortunate run out of Sohail Tanvir, leaving Salman Butt high and dry with the tail-enders to suffice with. The left-handed batsman was ninth out, ending a 142-ball effort studded with 17 fours.
