India won that match by 3 wickets.

It was for the first time when India and Pakistan were playing against each other in the T20 format Asia Cup and former Pakistani left-arm fast bowler, Mohammad Amir was making his comeback after a five-year-long ban. Pakistan batted first and they were completely thrashed by Indian bowlers they made only 83 and things were looking quite easy for India but Amir gave a mini heart attack to Indian fans when he took three wickets of Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, and Suresh Raina with his class bowling in first two overs of his spell. Virat Kohli then took the charge and won the game for India by 6 wickets.
#1 2012 – Group stage
It was probably the best match between Pakistan and India in Asia Cup. Pakistan batted first and gave a gigantic target of 330 to India. It was Mohammad Hafeez and Nasir Jamshed who made 105 and 112 respectively.
Indian openers Gautam Gambhir and Sachin Tendulkar came to bat and it was the first delivery of the Indian innings by Hafeez which took the wicket of Gautam Gambhir. It was a pressure situation in such a big match but then came Virat Kohli who started making a partnership with Sachin and they both managed to do it well.
Sachin lost his wicket and it was again a pressure situation for India but it was Rohit Sharma who came to bat and now two young Indian cricketers Virat and Rohit sealed victory for India with an unbeatable partnership. Virat Kohli was on a completely different level, he made 183 which is also his highest ODI score to date.
