India vs Pakistan, 1st ODI

The Emirati honour guards perform prior to the start of the first one-day interational between India and Pakistan at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi, on Tuesday.

The two-match series will raise around $10 million for victims of the earthquake that hit parts of northern India and Pakistan.

The match, the first to be played in the United Arab Emirates in six years, also marked the opening of international cricket's newest venue -- the $2.5 million Zayed stadium, which can accommodate 16,000 spectators.

Younis Khan top scored with 71 to guide Pakistan to a six-wicket victory over India.
