India started slowly, galloped in the middle, slowed down again before picking up some pace at the end to post their fourth highest total against Pakistan. In the end, it didn't prove enough. Pakistan went the other way: They started off in a rush, slowed down in the middle, upped the ante later before exploding in the end.

Misbah: "I really enjoyed the partnership with Younis. We decided if we play 50 overs we will win the game." On asked when will he stop playing that paddle sweep, he said, "I think after this game!"

Dhoni: "It was a good day for cricket. We should have scored atleast 350. We never bowled according to the field, we didn't bowl well. I don't think we missed a extra bowler. Sourav bowled very well, he bowled better than bit of our regular bowlers."

Man of the match: Younis Khan. "We lost couple of games against India. So this is a good win. I and Misbah shared a good partnership. The plan was to give around 7 runs per over to Afridi and Tanvir and we [Misbah and Younis] managed to do it.

Shoaib Malik: " I think I had three tablets for my blood pressure! The credit goes to Younis, Misbah and at the end, Afridi and Tanvir. Our morale is high now as its 1-1 now. I would like to thank the Indian and the Pakistan crowd who turned up today. It was a great wicket to play on."

That's it from me. It was fun, bringing you a cracker of a game. Thanks for logging on. Alvida!

Pathan to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, Pakistan have leveled the series. They win by 4 wickets. It was a racy chase. Full in length, Afridi backs away and drives the length delivery on the stumps to covers where Uthappa misfields. Game over.

The fielders move inside the circle.

Pathan to Sohail Tanvir, 1 run, on the stumps, Tanvir levels the score by turning it to long leg. Tanvir wants to come back for the risky second run, Afridi wants to finish the game himself. So 1 run it is.
