Commentary

Munaf Patel has won a bike here, and PK has started riding it. He is doing wheelies with it. With Munaf riding pillion. Whoa. Well, that, as they say, is that from us. Do join us for the final

Presentation time
Viru Sehwag is MoM, he says: Today was a much better wicket to bat on. [Didn't seem like that from how the others batted]. I felt really disappointed when I got out because I could have taken us through to 270 or more. It is pleasing if centuries lead to victories. I ted to score hundreds in 100 or less than 100 balls, so that gives us the time. Looking forward to the Sri Lanka match - we lost the last one badly."

MS Dhoni says: "He is the only batsman who seems to be middling the ball. It was really good to bat with him. In the previous game too he scored 99, the this century was big too. In the second half of the game, the bowlers did the job for us. We give PK the new ball because he is a swing bowler and he has good control over his swing. Ashish is usually good. Munaf did a good job too. Mills told me he is taking Powerplay, and I arranged my field accordingly, and forgot to look at the umpire. When we asked in the fith over, how many overs left, the umpires said the Powerplay is not even on. But Mills stood by his word, and it was sorted out." So, basically Mills forgot to tell the umpires, but stood by his word.

Ross Taylor says: "The way Sehwag batted, it took the game away from us. The way they bowled, they bowled full and straight, they made us make tough decisions. Praveen Kumar was special. The ball has been swinging all through the tournament. Back to the drawing board. Thanks a lot to Sri Lanka Cricket."

So even after Mills's late entertainment, India have won comprehensively, making it to yet another Sri Lanka-India match. Yeah you heard it right. Back to the match. Jeff writes in, "15 single digit scores in this match, is this some kind of a record?" Will check that later

Nehra to Mills, OUT, PK hasn't had to move an inch at long-on to take this catch. The slower ball does it for India, Mills looks to hit this out of the ground but finds long-on

Jadeja to McKay, no run, flat into the pads, beats him

Jadeja to McKay, no run, big appeal for lbw, but it is spinning away, and has only about kissed the pad on the way to the pad. Impossible to call for the ump

Jadeja to McKay, no run, full ball, driven to long-off

Jadeja to McKay, 2 runs, steered past short third man... Mills thinks of a single but comes back for two
