Suresh Raina's stupendous match-winning knock not only fetched him the Man-of-the-Match award but also wholesome praise from both the captains - Andrew Flintoff and Rahul Dravid.

"For a 19-year-old to have such a temperament is something special," gushed Dravid, who has used adjectives like "stupendous" and "extraordinary" in his past references to Raina.

Flintoff seemed equally impressed. "We tried to squeeze him and try and get him to hit through the off side but he stayed patient. He works hard for his runs and it was a fantastic knock."
