Commentary

Compton: "There was no need to panic, we could play a few dot balls, feels very good to finish it off. "

Paaritosh writes in: "Seems like India can't defeat England even in the club level this season!"

"If it takes a weird name to get comments posted, you HAVE TO post mine! I've been trying to post my comments for every single match since the India tour of England with my real name :(" says Thirupathaiah Avululla, a tongue-twister that's hard to beat.

Post-match presentation
Gautam Gambhir: "I think we batted really well, but the first six overs the way van der Merwe batted, he took the game away from us. It was a very competitive total we put up."

Alfonso Thomas: "I thought I lost it when I brought Suppiah in to bowl against Yusuf. but this man behind me (Roelof) is a wonderful cricketer. The belief in the team (is one of our strengths)."

The Man of the Match is Roelof van der Merwe: "It is always good to play an innings to win, and help the team win. Very happy at Somerset and hopefully can help them do well. I have worked hard at my game in the (South African) winter."

That's the end of the fun from the CLT20 for today. If you haven't had your share of Twenty20 kicks for the day, hop over to the England-West Indies game. Thanks for all the mails, see you tomorrow.

Balaji to Compton, no run, a superb yorker from Balaji, through the batsman's legs to the keeper, too little too late?
