Abu Dhabi:The revitalised rivalry between India and Pakistan will be played out again in a day-night encounter for the record prize money of 100,000 dollars in Abu Dhabi on May 14.

The oil-rich emirate has stumped up the highest stake for the One-day Sheikh Zayed Cricket Cup at the new 20,000-capacity Zayed Cricket Stadium.

Sourav Ganguly will lead a near full-strength Indian XI against a Pakistan team captained by Inzamam-ul-Haq, according to Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak al-Nahyan, chairman of the Abu Dhabi Cricket Control Board and United Arab Emirates minister for higher education.

The 50 overs game will not be an official One-day International.
