What a marvelous knock it was from Sehwag. Imperious. Violent. And intelligent. He didn't take any risks against Steyn and Ishant and exploded against the rest.

James Hopes: "Its hard to put in words how he batted tonight. Iam speechless about the way he played. That was pretty special. That's the kind of player he is mate. He is as good as it gets in world cricket. We now will take one game at a time."

Irfan Pathan: "Amazing innings. Only one guy could do it - it was Veeru. We have a good team but haven't done well. couple of close games but we ended up losing them. We have to keep faith and do it. I am happy with the way I bowled. I would have liked to finish the game with the bat. I am there and there about. I am happy with my progress. Great feeling that my parents were here. They are proud parents."

Please hang on for quotes from the post-match ceremony.

Sangakkara: "First of all hold our catches I reckon. We had two chances. It was an excellent score but Viru took it away from us. no one means to drop catches but we need to hold em to win games. The difference is to take those turning points in our favour. We haven't managed to do it. We have done well in patches but not been consistent."

Sehwag: "I was just telling my boys that whoever gets set just play 15-16 overs. batsmen like Warner, or me, or Gilchrist or Tendulkar, can do anything if we play for so many overs. I was telling myself that just play through the spell of styen and Ishant. They don't have fifth bowler and I have played Amit Mishra a lot in nets. I knew I could come hard on them. I just thought let me play my shots and if we can get momentum we can do this. I just told Birt to give me strike as much as he can. Last time I played here I was 94 not out and this time I didn't want to miss out on hundred. I knew If I stayed there till the end, my team will win. I told my boys, just play fearless cricket."

Sehwag is of course man of the match as well.

That's it from us. see you tomorrow evening.

Duminy to Hopes, 2 runs, Nagar is almost run out Does Sehwag have to score all the runs? full delivery, on the middle, whipped to left of deep midwicket region. Christian with a direct hit. Duminy was about to collect before he let it go and hit the stumps. Very very tight call. The bat seems to have just slid back inside. he dived forward near the end and dragged his bat in. Just in. Or so it appears.

Duminy to Nagar, 1 run, reaches forward to force it to long-off

Replays in: That's out. Looked plumb. It hit him on the off stump line and would have hit the middle stump.
