Agra: India defeated Pakistan by seven wickets in the third and final Limited Overs cricket match to clinch the Goodwill Veterans' series 2-1 at Agra on Wednesday.

Rajesh Chauhan was the star performer with his five wicket haul as India overhauled the target of 172 comfortably.

Poor weather conditions reduced the final match to a 35-over affair.

Put into bat, Pakistan were all out for 171 in 33.2 overs with Saddiq Mohammad (34), Aamir Malik (30) and Manzoor Ilahi (23) being the chief contributors.
