Khan: "I love India/ Pakistan matches ...no matter who wins ..One team has to lose..People keep your emotions in check and salute the players from both the teams..Great game of cricket."
Dibbu: "You've go to love Simon Taufel's expression as the crowds raided the pitch after the match." Ha! yeah. He was steaming, wasn't he?
Hang on for the quotes from the post-match ceremony.
Dhoni: "Till Raina was batting I thought it was pretty gettable. He got a tough one and after that it became difficult. Two run outs; doesn't help you when you are chasing. During bowling, we gave too many runs. I have never seen so many runs scored of cut (Malik hit over 60 runs in that region!). i felt i was 3-4 bowlers short, Ashish bowled well. Two big games coming up. From now on, its like a knock out for us. If we don't play well, we can pack up and go back home!"
Younis Khan: "It was a professional performance. We had a good start. Fantastic knocks from Yousuf and Malik. I thought we would reach 320 in the end but we didn't hit too many runs in the last Powerplay. The boys were very keen ... Ajmal has performed every game and Afridi, in the last couple of years, has been fantastic with his all round performances. We are still hungry. If we can defeat Australia in the next game, it would be nice."
Shoaib Malik is the Man of the Match: "When I started my batting, I just kept one thing at the mind; to stay at the wicket. It wasnt' easy wicket as the ball was not coming to the bat. Yousuf bhai came and told me to stay at the wicket. Don;t worry about the target. he is a very experienced player. When we were about 200, there we decided that 300 is [possibilitly]. We succeeded. "
That's it from us. On behalf of our scorer Sanjay, this is Sriram Veera signing off. It was great fun bringing you this game. Catch you tomorrow. Alvida!
Omar : "Although I'm a Pakistani team supporter, I really feel for the Indians right now. Dravid, Gambhir and Raina; all three dismissals tempt one to pull his hair out!"
It was a very good throw from Gul from deep cover
