India made light work of winning a third game at the Cricket World Cup, beating the United Arab Emirates by nine wickets in Perth.
MS Dhoni's men - fresh from their impressive win over South Africa last time out - were ruthless in their dismantling of the associate nation.
A first ODI four-for from Ravichandran Ashwin (four for 25) helped them bowl out the UAE for 102 - the lowest score of the tournament so far - and then they rattled through their chase in less than 19 overs.
The only bump in the road in India's knock came when Shikhar Dhawan went in the seventh over for 14, Rohan Mustafa taking a fine catch at backward point off the bowling of Mohammad Naveed.
Around him, though, Rohit Sharma made 57 and Virat Kohli 33 in a stand of 75 as victory was secured with ease on the back of a solid bowling performance.
Shikhar Dhawan's century led India to a comprehensive 130-run win over South Africa in World Cup Pool B.
Dhawan put on 127 with Virat Kohli and 125 with Ajinkya Rahane as India reached 307 for seven in Melbourne.
That total looked as though it could have been even higher but it proved quite sufficient as, despite a third-wicket stand of 68 between AB de Villiers and Faf du Plessis, South Africa lost wickets at regular intervals on their way to 177 all out.
Almost 10 overs were left unused as what had been billed as a blockbuster match-up petered out into a one-sided contest.

India and the United States have broken an impasse standing in the way of civil nuclear trade, Indian media reports.
The breakthrough comes as Obama and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met in New Delhi.
The reports said that the pair had ironed out differences on the liability of suppliers to India in the event of a nuclear accident and the United States had dropped its demand to be able to track the whereabouts of nuclear material supplied to India.
US President Obama was given an elaborate welcome at the country's presidential palace in New Delhi.
He walked in his socks to place a commemorative wreath honouring the father of India's independence movement, Mahatma Gandhi.
Tomorrow, Mr Obama was to be the guest of honour at India's Republic Day festivities, making him the first US president to attend the anniversary of the enactment of country's democratic constitution.
Barack Obama has arrived in India with his wife Michelle for a symbolic three-day visit of the country.
In a break from protocol, the US President and the First Lady were met on the tarmac by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The two leaders hugged warmly before the group posed for photographs.
Just a year ago, relations between the two countries were at an all-time low when a diplomatic row broke out over allegations an Indian diplomat in the US exploited her housekeeper - leading to the abrupt resignation of the US ambassador from India.
Obama will be the first US president to attend India's Republic Day parade and will host a radio show with Mr Modi.
"I'd like to think the stars are aligned to finally realise the vision (of) India and America as true global partners," Obama said in an interview with India Today, a weekly magazine, published on Friday.
