Commentary

One final league game tomorrow, between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka before the big final between Sri Lanka and Pakistan. Join us tomorrow afternoon. Bye for now.

Ravindra Jadeja, the Man of the Match. Jadeja: "Wicket was slow, I was trying to bowl slow, so that I could get some turn. You know that wicket is always going to be slow in Bangladesh. Before the game started, Duncan [Fletcher] told us this also counts an an ODI, so you guys be serious, we were focussed on the game."

Virat Kohli: "Complete performance from the team. Hard to motivate yourselves when you have been travelling and are out of contention for the final. Being more relaxed worked for us, we were quite tense in the earlier games. Idea was to give guys time in the middle. Someone like Ajinkya who has scored on and off, it is good to give them some confidence, even Dinesh Karthik was sent up the order. We have to be patient with them and the results will follow. We started off quite well, we committed crucial mistakes against Pakistan and SL and we lost close games. Amit Mishra coming and bowling well against Pakistan, that was good to see. Am happy the way the team showed their character."

Mohammad Nabi: "Great tournament for us, we have proved we are a good team in Asia after the Full Members. Win over Bangladesh is good sign for us. Ashwin and Jadeja bowled brilliantly, we started well in first ten overs. Big celebration in Afghanistan (after win over Bangladesh). If there are more matches against Full Members, it is good experience for Afghanistan."

So India end with comfortable wins over Afghanistan and Bangladesh, but they came up just short against the bigger sides, Sri Lanka and Pakistan. But who would have thought Afghanistan would end the tournament with a victory? Continue to impress nearly every time they play
