Commentary

So a rather easy for the Indians. Hang on for the post-match ceremony

Dar The spinners bowled well again today. Our pace bowlers had problem bowling on these flat tracks.

Man of the Match: Suresh Raina: "I played really well here and hopefully will maintain the tempo against Pakistan. They bowled really well in 25 to 35 overs. Dhoni just asked me to play my natural game. I just played straight. We are ready for the important game against Pakistan.

Dhoni: "It was a good game to start of the tournament. It was good to win the toss; I had lost quite a few in earlier tournaments including the IPL. We got a good start and after that Raina played well. We practised taking singles and twos in the middle overs. If you score runs against sides like Hong Kong they would say you just scored against them! It was good opportunity for them as well, they will learn a lot from this experience. I have made a conscious effort to bat up the order. May be if I had batted in the final in Bangladesh, there might have been a different result, may be. I will bat up now on."

That's it from us. Alvida!

Sehwag to Afzaal Haider, no run, huge shout for lbw but not given. The front leg was pressed across and he couldn't get back his bat around it in time. It hit him in front of middle and leg, umpire reckons it would have gone down leg
