Commentary

END OF OVER:
50 | 3 Runs | IND-R: 234/8

  • SS Mundhe12 (10b)
  • PP Ojha2 (6b)
  • Joginder Sharma10-1-30-3
  • V Sehwag5-0-32-1

Joginder keeps his cool again but truth be told it was the pressure put on by Mishra in the slog overs as India Red fell under the gun chasing 247. There were some handy stands, not least the one between Rawat and Praveen, but their back-to-back dismissals swung it completely the Blues' way.

The Blues won the toss and put up a competitive 246, thanks mainly to Raina's 100-ball 92. It proved a winning total.

Join us tomorrow for the Red versus Green game, starting at 9.00 GMT. Thanks for tuning into Cricinfo again. Until next time, this is Jamie Alter signing off on behalf of Binoy George as well. Cheers!

Joginder Sharma to Ojha, no run, runs in from around the stumps, serving up a waist-high full toss on leg stump, Ojha is cramped for room and he misses out on the slog

16 to win from the final over. Tension, tension ... the ice man Jogi to bowl
