Commentary

10.45 pm India have won two out of two games. They are on top of their group. Australia, Pakistan and West Indies have all lost one game each. Bangladesh are yet to play.

Rishi: "I didn't care much for Rohit's reaction to Yuvraj's dismissal. He himself is more than capable of drawing such reactions of mild exasperation with his gameplay on his bad days."

Amit Mishra is Man of the Match for the second game in a row. He took 4-0-18-2 today. It's only his third T20 international that too. "I've done a lot of hard work in the nets for my variations and I'm happy they are coming out well."

Lots of questions coming in about the last ball, the batsmen crossed before the ball reached the boundary so it is scored as a single ...

Darren Sammy: "We just didn't respond well enough to their spinners, it took us a long time. Credit to them, they executed well ... it was good to see our bowlers take it the distance to the last over, because net run rate could come into play. Not enough runs on the board but happy with the way the bowlers came back. We know what our top order can do, it's just one game, we have three to go. No panic button, we are going to regroup and come back in two days' time."

MS Dhoni: "We are playing well, so it doesn't really matter that everyone should get a chance, our bowlers have bowled well, they have been tested. In the coming matches the other batsmen may get a chance. We don't really have a banker, a bowler to bowl the 18th-20th over ... we are playing games to some extent, to see who is better suited ... It was important for Rohit to bat through, we all know the kind of batsman he is, on a pitch like this ... he will take plenty from this game. Let's take it one game at a time, no point thinking too far ahead, we could have finished it an over earlier but that was up to the batsmen in the middle ..."

So that ends a day of contrasting games. Australia-Pakistan was an explosive, high-voltage contest. India-West Indies not so much. Thank you for all your emails, do tune in tomorrow for more World T20 action. Cheers.

Samuels to Raina, 1 run, and Raina shows how it's done ... goes back and cuts the ball hard between two fielders at point. The scoreline says only two balls to spare, but the margin of victory was much wider than that.

Suresh Raina walks to the middle ... 1 to win off 3 balls, surely it won't go down to the final delivery? Dhoni is padded ...
