Commentary

Gayle: "It was a good innings from Yuvraj but having said that it was a good game. Looking to square up the series on Sunday. It was a good effort from the batsmen. Majority of us got starts. I thought Darren Bravo played well."

Dhoni: "Most of the guys thought we had won the game once we had 7 wickets down. That's the mistake we should not commit. The difference might be 20 runs but it was lot closer than that. Yuvraj played very well. I depend on him a lot. He bats at No 4 and is consistent. He has proved himself time and again. We are happy to win game."

Man of the Match - Yuvraj Singh: "It was good. Initially, I was trying to get used to the pace of the wicket. I was struggling for the first 20 balls. As I got going, I got the momentum and played a few shots. It's bit different when you come back to play 50-over cricket after playing so many Twenty20. "

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on.

Nehra to Ramdin, OUT, And India win the game by 20 runs. Ramdin went for the big hit over mid-off but couldn't clear the cordon. Harbhajan Singh takes the catch at mid-off and hugs Yuvraj. Fine effort from West Indies to come close but no cigar. India might wonder how it go so close in the end despite the absence of any top-order batsmen or any power hitters. The wides and the numerous deliveries on and outside the leg stump would have made Dhoni lose some more hair.

Hang on for post-match ceremony.

Nehra to bowl. 21 from 12 balls. Discussions in the middle and advice from the crowd. It's all happening.
