Commentary

Plenty of hype before this match, but this was something of a damp squib, and not just because of the incessant rain. A one-sided contest this, and the Indian juggernaut rolls on. Certainly not a match that will join the ranks of classic India-Pakistan matches.

Mazher Arshad points out: "It is only second time when Pakistan have ended an ICC tournament without winning a match. First was ICC knockout 1998 in Dhaka."

And Faizan Lakhani tweets: "#Pakistan batting averages at #CT13 Farhat 2.00, Kamran 7.66, Malik 8.33, Hafeez 12.66." Easy to see why Pakistan's performance has been so poor this tournament.

The ground is bathed in beautiful sunshine now, seems like we could have play for several hours more.

Presentation ceremony:

Misbah-ul-Haq is booed as he comes to speak: "Disappointing performance again with the bat, the weather also played a part, difficult to get in and out so many times. In this sort of format, it is too short for the teams because you have one bad day at the start of the tournament, you are almost out of it. I think the bowling did okay for us, the way they are establishing themselves, really a plus for Pakistan." Enjoyed the tournament? "Not much."

MS Dhoni gets a big cheer as he walks up: "The fan support has always been there, no matter where we play. The whole team is doing really well, in all the three departments. We are the top fielding side in world cricket as of now, we need to keep the intensity up. Bhuvneshwar bowls very good areas, and can swing the ball, he's someone who has given us the early breakthroughs, good to see him bowl well."

Man of the Match is Bhuvneshwar Kumar: "There was a bit of bounce in the wicket, wasn't really nervous because it was Pakistan, but do feel nervous whichever game you play."

That's a wrap from our coverage for this match, thanks to all the fans for your persistence despite the many, many rain breaks. Hope you enjoyed reading up on Duckworth-Lewis method.
