Commentary

Massive win. Sehwag indulged, Gambhir enjoyed himself, and Yuvraj Singh dazzled the senses with a blistering attack to propel India to a match-winning total. Zaheer and Munaf pushed England on the back foot and the chase went nowhere. KP and Bopara hit fifties but it was too little and too late.

Hang on for post-match ceremony.

Pietersen: At the end of the day when you stand up and watch innings like Yuvraj - Sehwag and Gambhir also played well, you just have to say well played guys. The pitch was a perfect batting beauty. They played superb cricket today. We have to regroup and sort things out. There are six games still left.

Dhoni: We want to start on a good note. We also wanted to field but the pitch didn't do much. It was a fantastic start given by Sehwag, Gambhir and Raina. And Yuvraj was fantastic. That kind of innings just takes you through. The bowlers bowled well. Yuvraj stood out as individual. It's tough to set a target - you don't know when to take the powerplay, most of the teams will take from 35 to 40.

Zaheer and Munaf bowled on the right areas; it was a wicket where you had to bowl a bit up. it was not a hit-the-deck wicket. After their spell, the game was ours totally. Just go back and enjoy for a day. Then regroup and practice.

Man of the Match Yuvraj : "It has been a hard couple of bad months. Didnt have a good last series and was not in the Test series. Sat down and thought about what I need to do to improve. The rate at which I carried on, this is one of my best knocks in ODI. I didn't have to run, i just pressed the pedal. Guys around me like Raina helped and before Viru and Gambhir gave a good start. It was a great batting wicket. I pulled a muscle in the back; will try to get fit for the next game."

Yuvraj gets the man of the match and gets a bike. Dhoni can't wait for Yuvraj to get down as he gets on to drive the bike!

Let the boys drive. That's it from us. On behalf of Binoy George, this is Sriram Veera signing off. Thanks for logging on. Alvida!
