Commentary

Nick: "Mighty proud of the lads, well worth staying up til 3:30am. Batting by Rosscoe and Scotty was amazing, bowling was also outstanding. The same type of delivery dismissed most of the Indian team. Can't help but feel that India lost a ton of momentum when Scotty and Ross entrenched themselves but will be glad to see India come back with a vengeance!"

Rajiv: "Seems the entire Indian team could do with a FREE screening of the new movie "Despicable Me". Ah! I have to see that movie. Perhaps tonight. The game has ended so early.

Hariharan: "To all Jadeja baiters : He is the top scorer in this innings with a splendid fighting 20. Take that!"

Swapnil: "So whats the news - has Taylor enforced the follow-on? There's still 18 overs to be played for stumps right?"

Saravanan: "The individual scores of Taylor and Styris are more than the total score of India.. As usual shall we blame it on lights?"

Mukunth: "Nehra - A Class Act - the only man to get caught out in front of the wicket!"

Naveen: "In cricket, it's usual, not to worry so much. People who have never held the bat in life ..,they will never understand this result. i know india will be back and will win the series."

Sarma: "I agree with Naveen! It's just one of those days... India had played games like that earlier as well. No worries..They will bounce back. It's easy to comment from here and difficult to play from there. It's not a good game, I agree. But wins and losses are part and parcel of the game!"

Mikey: "Why does it always take so long to get to the presentations up there? Down here in Aus they into and thru it fairly quickly, but it seems to take forever sometimes, especially in SL."

The Presentation ceremony begins

MS Dhoni: "Ross and Styris batted really well. We got couple of chances but we didn't accept it. The wicket had spongy bounce and that was what did the trick. they got a kind of bounce that put us in awkward situation."

Ross Taylor: "It was a tough decision to leave out Jeetan Patel today. We are happy with the way we came back today. Nehra and Praveen bowled really well. We got a partnership going and thought it would be great to reach 250-260 and we reached 288. "

Taylor is also the man of the match for his superb 95.

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on. See you at the next game.
