Commentary

So India's proud record of not winning Super Eight match since the inception of the IPL remains untarnished. That's all we have from tonight, folks. Just an update on net run-rate: Australia have gone +2.506, and India -2.506. That almost rules out progression based on net run-rate. Remember India play the last game of the Group, so if it does come to it, India will know what exactly to do. That's a tough ask, though. Thanks for joining us. Wondering who is ever going to stop Watson in this tournament, this is Sidharth Monga signing off. Cheers

Presentation "We need to analyse what really happened," says MS Dhoni. "We got off to a good start, but lost quick wickets, and we were not in a good situation to cash in. We were 20 short. Rain came just at the wrong time. Just after the wicket was rolled. The wet ball is not good for spinners. It was like bowling in England. That was the main reason we lost. We need to give them credit for the way they batted, but the ball was not stopping as it did in the first innings. And everybody it went into the outfield, the ball got wet. No spinner told me the ball is not wet. It's important to look at what mistakes what we have committed, but it is also important to get it out of the system. we will try to do that, but it will still be there, in some corner of our heart"

"It was impressive performance," says George Bailey. "Set up by some good bowling. Patty was outstanding, the best we have seen him bowl in this tournament so far. We were probably behind the eight ball after six overs but we came back very well. The absolute beauty of those two openers is, that when they are on, there are no better hitters. I don't think rankings matter when you get to the World Cup. As good as this win is, we have to be up and ready for South Africa"

"The last couple of games have been pretty good," says Shane Watson. "It's nice when things come together like this. Probably batting is a bit more enjoyable, when it is two of you against 11 of the opposition. That's probably more satisfying, but enjoying being an allrounder."

Warner and Maxwell hug each other. This is a huge win. More than five overs to spare. Imagine what it'll do to the run-rate situation. This is a good old-fashioned thrashing. Dhoni has got to be frustrated, although he is not showing it. There's a tweet going around, from Achettup: "India picked five bowlers, and used eight of them in less than 15 overs."

Australia enjoying it thoroughly. They have mauled India on a slow track after losing the toss. And before the start of the match, Australia were ranked No. 9 to India's No. 3

Watson is not quite the Kallis, but isn't he the Most Valuable Player in limited-overs cricket? Yet another emphatic performance from him: 3 for 34 with the ball and 72 off 42 with the bat. He has the most match awards, most wickets, most sixes, and is not far off most runs in this tournament
