Commentary

Vettori: "When you win the toss here you want to put up a competitive total. The wickets gets easier when you have played yourself in; I found it that my self. Dhoni and Raina showed it as well. Some of our boys would be disappointed. It wasn't a bad fight back from us; we put them under some pressure. You can't expect to play on good decks all the time, when you come across deck like this you need to adapt."

Dhoni: "We wanted to get them out as cheap as possible. Nehra did well and then Yuvraj singh, our new find with the ball, did a good job. Sachin gave us a good start ... Raina also batted well with me. Every body was slightly tensed at the start of the game [as India are playing after a break]... the bowlers bowled really well. If there was one more spinner like Yuvi in their side, we would have been under more pressure. [on no 1] Frankly we are not thinking about it. We are just concentrating on what we do in the field. If we play good cricket, we eventually would be no 1 team in the world."

Man of the Match: Nehra : "I was struggling because of the injuries but I am back on track for the last 6-7 months. I wasn't too nervous today. I have been bowling well in the recent months and I just want to concentrate on line and length. The important thing was to pick up early wickets."

Stylish player of the day Tendulkar wins a bike.

That's it from us. Good bye and good luck.
