Virender Sehwag (4), Gautam Gambhir (8), Virat Kohli (0) and Yuvraj Singh (2) were clean bowled one after the other as they failed to withstand the fierce Pakistani pace attack of Junaid and Irfan.
Rohit Sharma (4) was the next in line to be dismissed when he completely failed to read Junaid's brilliant swinging delivery and was caught brilliantly at third slip by skipper Mohammad Hafeez.
Sharma's wicket gave Junaid his fourth wicket of the match and proved crucial for Pakistan as India lost half its side inside 10 overs.
Earlier, Pakistan won the toss and elected to bowl against India.
The toss, originally scheduled for 8.30am (IST), took place at 9.30am, due to wet outfield. The match will be played without any reduction in the number of overs.
The delay was expected as the city had been lashed by rain in the past couple of days.
Pakistan included Azhar Ali, Younis Khan, Junaid, Irfan in the squad. Shoaib Malik replaced Umar Akmal.
On the other hand Sehwag replaced Ajinkya Rahane in the XI that played in Ahmedabad two days ago.
The match will be played under the new ODI rules which allow two bouncers and over among other things.
