END OF OVER:
20 | 17 Runs 1 Wkt | ENG: 200/6 (19 runs required, RR: 10.00)

  • A Flintoff8 (4b)
  • AD Mascarenhas0 (0b)
  • IK Pathan4-0-37-3
  • Harbhajan Singh4-0-35-1

Handshakes all round, most notably between Flintoff and Yuvraj, who had something of a tete-a-tete during India's innings.

Yuvraj was the main man of the day with six sixes in a single over off Stuart Broad, to become the fourth man in senior cricket to achieve the feat, after Garry Sobers, Ravi Shastri and Herschelle Gibbs.

England are out of the World Twenty20, India have a chance to snatch the final semi-final slot, if they can see off South Africa tomorrow.

"I feel sorry for Stuart Broad, but it was only a matter of time before an over like that came around," says England's captain, Paul Collingwood. "It's disappointing to be knocked out, but we'll learn a lot from this."

"What Yuvi did was amazing for the team," says Dhoni. "We got a score that was next to impossible."

And here's what the main man has to say: "I just went in to slog," says Yuvraj. "With two overs to go, I just thought I'd use the crease and timed it well. In England I got hit for five sixes by Dimitri Mascarenhas, so I thought I had to take my chance."

As for his contretemps with Flintoff: "These things happen in international cricket. He's a great allrounder and, off the field, a good friend."

So that's that. India win by 18 runs - or three sixes - after a remarkable evening of batting. We've been Andrew Miller, Martin Williamson and Jenny Thompson. And it's been massive.

Pathan to Flintoff, FOUR, Flintoff finishes with an emphatic thump that Harbhajan this time can't cut off. England reach 200 and save some pride, but it's India who march on

Pathan to Wright, OUT, that's an incredible catch from Harbhajan on the long-on boundary! He reached up and back and plucked the six from thin air, inches inside the rope and right in front of the England dug-out! Risked life and limb and came up trumps!
