Match Notes

  • A hero's innings

    Inzamam was given a hero's ovation into the pavilion, for his had been the innings of a hero; 122 from 104 balls, speaks for itself; and from that situation and on this occasion

  • India sneak a high-scoring thriller

    Despite Inzamam-ul-Haq's brilliant 122, Pakistan fell five runs short of India 349 in the highest-scoring match in the history of one-day-international cricket

  • The same old story

    It wasn't for nothing that Steve Waugh and his Australians used to believe that the battle is often won early on in a match, whether it is the first session of a Test or the first 15 overs of a one-dayer

  • Ganguly rails against an ICC rule

    Sourav Ganguly might have landed himself in trouble after terming as 'ridiculous' a decision taken by the ICC not to dock overs from the side bowling first and failing to complete its quota of overs in the stipulated time

  • One blood, and one astonishing match

    Evidently the hype has been worth it
