So, in the battle of the bats it is India who have triumphed. They lost a couple of early wickets but Kohli and Yuvraj revived India with that century stand. Australia, though still not ahead, would have sensed a chance with the departure of Yuvraj but Raina's attacking cameo shut them out. It would be quite a high for Tiwary to hit the winning runs. Sriram Veera's the bulletin writer, so do check out his final match wrap. It should be updated soon. Also, check the game out in pictures with our gallery. We'll get you the presentation details in a bit.

Clarke: "Cameron White's innings was unbelievable, I thought 290 was enough but India chased well. John Hastings did a fantastic job, Starc has a bright future for Australia. We'll try to rebuild. Disappointed with the result. We'll try to do better in the first 15 overs in the second game."

MD Dhoni: "Yuvraj and Kohli got us back in the game and Raina supported Kohli well in the end. We wanted to see how much dew was around, I thought the spinners would get more turn but it turned out to be much flatter. White took the attack apart, but with Suresh Raina at the crease with one Powerplay to go I knew we had a chance. Yuvraj, it was very important for him to get runs. Kohli has been often criticised for giving away good starts and he he batted perfectly today. We'll look to win the third game as well. We have eight to ten games before the World Cup and we want to achieve more than just winning the games."

Kohli is the Man of the Match: "I was struggling with cramps in my 70s and 80s. I just wanted to drag the game as much as I could to put my team in a winning position. Vijay suggested that I just time the ball than hit it too hard. He helped calm me down. With Yuvraj batting at the other end, it's always helpful because he can score quickly and take the pressure off you. We just decided to build a partnership and bank on the Powerplay. The team has shown trust in me to bat at No.3 and I'll just look to capitalise. Once the dew came in, the ball was coming on quite nicely and we tried to take advantage on that."

That's all, folks. Thanks for tuning in and sending us your feedback. We'll see you again on the 24th for the next game in Goa. Until then, it's goodbye.
