Sambit and Rajesh are waiting for you. It will be moderated by Akhila Ranganna. You can find the discussion board here.

And that's it. Both teams agree to call off the game. Ryder plucks a stump for a souvenir. Please hop on to Match discussion, where Sambit Bal, Cricinfo's editor, and S Rajesh, the stats editor, will start the chat. Jamie Alter, who is writing the bulletin for this game, will be in as well. I will try to join in later after the presentation ceremony.

Gautam Gambhir and Rahul Dravid started the stiff resistance before Dravid fell, wrongly given out. But Gambhir found the right support in Laxman and the duo pushed India to safety.

Sehwag: We didn't bat well in the first innings but we did well in the second, especially Gautam and Laxman. Gautam nearly played for 11 hours and saved the Test for us.

Vettori: You don't expect you will be there for three days in a row but it showed how dominant position we were in. The bowlers bowled so well in the first innings and it gave us hope that we can do the job in the second. The pitch got easier and easier to bat. You can play another Test match on this if you want to! whatever conditions we get [in the third Test] , this performance here will give us lots of heart.

Man of the Match Ryder: "I am very happy. I was disappointed when I got out but looking back I am quite happy with it."

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on over the last five days. Good bye and good luck.

How to Yuvraj Singh, no run, oh by the way, he is trying to bowl some off spin here. Goes on straight, not by choice, patted back down the track
