Commentary

It's presentation time:

Misbah: "Excellent innings by Kohli. Credit goes to their batsmen, it's easy out there under lights, 329 is still a good score. The best innings (Kohli) I have ever seen."

Dhoni: "They batted brilliantly, we used 8 bowlers. Sachin and Virat batted brilliantly, Rohit can be a good finisher. Kohli was brilliant. Once you cross 300 it's difficult irrespective of how flat the pitch is, we did it in Hobart. We've got the talent in the bowling departmet also. It's about how you handle pressure, they will learn from games like these."

Kohli picks up his award from Akshay Kumar: "I still can't believe what happened out there honestly. I'm really satisfied. We were waiting for these 3-4 overs of 15-20 runs. I'm a fan of Rohit Sharma, love watching him bat. I would rate this knock and Hobart equally. To be able to chase 330 against this bowling is satisfying."

So here's the equation. Pakistan are through to the final. India are on eight points but not there yet. They will wait on the result of the next game. A win for Bangladesh, with or without a bonus point, means that they are through, so India get knocked out. Therefore, Bangladesh need nothing less than a win. Sri Lanka are out so they will play for pride.

That sums it up. India will be watching the next game intently. Pakistan should pick a specialist keeper for the finals. And the team winning the toss, field first!

Thanks for your company and the mails. Cheers everyone!

End of match: This is India's highest chase in ODIs, beating their Natwest final heroics in 2002. No shirt-waving this time from the dressing-room! But I'm sure there must be plenty of it hapenning elsewhere.

Like a feedbacker said, this is like India's chase against Pakistan in 1998, where they chased down 317 odd. That was at the Bangabandhu Stadium, also in Dhaka.

You might not want to stand in Kohli's way right now because he's punching the air, with stump in hand. He never tires, apparently. Gavaskar said that we were witnessing the future, with Kohli and Rohit at the crease.

Interesting tweet here: "@Vivek_Chandra: Ganguly:183 in 1999. Captain:2000 * Dhoni:183 in 2005. Captain: 2007 * Kohli:183 in 2012. Captain: Very Soon?"

Umar Gul to Kohli, OUT, a top edge ends Kohli's special knock! Like Rohit he tries to launch a length ball over the on side and gets a top edge that swirls to point, easily taken, he walks back to the applause, equals the highest score by an Indian batsman in a chase
