Zimbabwe just didn't make enough and it was clear from the start. Had they scored 160, this would have been an interesting chase. India looked jittery against Mpofu in the beginning and threatened to make heavy weather of this chase but Pathan eased the nerves with some big hits. Stay with us for the presentation.

Well looks like they're showing the presentation only at midnight. I've been told that Yusuf Pathan is the Man of the Match.

Hang on. The presentation is on.

Chigumbura: "The middle order didn't put runs on the board. We wanted to be about 50 in the first six overs but we lost too many wickets. Pleasing to see the way our spinners performed."

Raina: "Bowlers executed the plans well. 112 wasn't a big score at all. The pitch does a bit for a spinners, Chawla performed well."

Pathan: "I just went in with the plan to go for my shots. The wicket was a bit slow, not the best to bat on."

That's it from us. Thanks for your company. You can catch the World Cup action on ESPN Soccernet.

Cheers!
