Shoaib Malik: I had cramps but feeling much better now. 300 was a good total but when you lose your main bowler it was hard to come back and they batted brilliantly." On his batting: "It's hard to feel good when you lose the game."

Man of the Match : Suresh Raina : "This year has been very good for my batting. I would like to thank my captain and senior players. I enjoyed batting with Sehwag who is a world-class player. It's mindblowing to see him hit. He said just play your natural game and I just did that. Yeah It was pretty hot out there but I have worked on my fitness and enjoy my fielding and batting."

Dhoni: "It was fantastic. It was one of the best [batting] tracks you can get. They scored 300 runs but I felt that 300 was chase able. In 25 overs they were just 100 and scored a lot in the next 25, so we knew we can get them. It was hard for them after losing Gul especially on this kind of batting track. I am happy with our bowling and happy with the way the boys have done. Couple of catches went out and we will work on it."

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on. Alvida!
