Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni wants the bowl-out rule abolished despite defeating arch-rivals Pakistan in that fashion in the Twenty20 world championships.
"I don't want to see a cricket match decided on a bowl-out," he said. "The team plays so hard to get a result and it should always be decided on the field."
India and Pakistan were involved in a bowl-out at the Kingsmead on Friday night after the arch-rivals played a heart-stopping tie.
With Pakistan needing one run to overtake India's 141-9, Misbah-ul Haq was run out off the last ball of the innings to leave his team on 141-7.
In the bowl-out, Pakistan's Yasir Arafat, Umar Gul and Shahid Afridi failed to hit the stumps at the other end.
Indian bowlers Virender Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh and Robin Uthappa hit the wicket each time to give their team a 3-0 win.
"It really amuses you, winning a cricket match 3-0," said Dhoni. "It doesn't happen every time, but it is in the record books now.
"I can tell my friends, when I was captain my team won 3-0."
Both Pakistan and India qualified for the Super Eights round after ousting Scotland from the race.
The narrow loss continued Pakistan's jinx of having never beaten India in a World Cup or world championship match, and Dhoni hoped his team will continue the trend.
"We might have to play them again in this tournament but, if we do, we would like to keep that record going," the Indian captain said.
"I never take pressure, whether it's India-Pakistan or any other game. As for my players they responded well. They were determined. They were focused. The intensity was good."
A sell-out crowd at the Kingsmead watched a slug fest between the two teams that swung from one corner to the other before the match ended with the scores level.
Pakistan appeared on course to victory when they restricted India to 141-9 after captain Shoaib Malik had won the toss and elected to field in overcast conditions.
But India hit back to reduce Pakistan to 103-6 in the 18th over, leaving the batting side needing a challenging 39 to win off the remaining 14 balls in the low-scoring match.
The seventh-wicket pair of Yasir Arafat and Misbah swung the game Pakistan's way by adding 38 off the next 13 balls, but failed to complete the crucial winning run.
Misbah, who made 53 off 35 balls, patted the last ball from Shanthakumaran Sreesanth and ran but failed to beat the throw from the infield to the bowler, who broke the wickets.
Left-arm seamer Irfan Pathan, returning to the Indian team after nine months, took 2-20 in his four overs.
For Pakistan, seamer Mohammad Asif returned the second-best figures in Twenty20 cricket to restrict India to 141-9 in the first session.
Asif used the heavy conditions to wreck India's top order with 4-18, second behind New Zealander Mark Gillespie's 4-7 against Kenya earlier in the week.
