Man of the Match Jesse Ryder : "Things are going all right at the moment. The confidence is high. I am looking forward to play in the Test series.

Vettori: We are looking forward to Test series. It should be competitive. Thanks to the crowd for coming in." And he adds with a smile, "Some of you supported us!" ha! Huge Indian-dominated audience there.

That's it from us. On behalf of Sanjay, our scorer, this is Sriram Veera, signing off. See you in the Test series. Ta!

I Sharma to Guptill, SIX runs, Guptill take a bow. Bloody entertaining way to bring up your fifty. He moved his front foot out and biffed the full length delivery over wide long-on. The white ball kept sailing into the night sky.
