What a fine win. Both teams line-up to shake hands. Please to wait for the presentation ceremony. Do read the bulletin by Sid Monga.
Dhoni: " ...We just didn't spend enough time in the middle. If we had wickets .. Credit goes to Sri Lanka. They batted and bowled well. Our bowlers gave them a bit of width and that's one thing you don't want to give Dilshan. He smashed us all around the park. The team that plays the best cricket on that particular day deserve to win. It was a good learning curve for the young batsmen in our side. Usually we don't get these sort of conditions."
Sangakkara: "It was a good toss to win. The way the openers batted - we talked a lot about getting through the first 10 overs. Mahela and Dilshan started well and Dilshan continued to bat really well. Perera lengthens our batting but his bowling has been very impressive in the last couple of games. Champaka Ramanayake has to take a lot of credit; he has done a great job with the fast bowlers. The discipline in line and length has been the real key for us."
Man of the match is Dilshan: "The last three innings I got a start but didn't capitalize. I thought today I should do it. We have lost the last three finals here against India. Everyone came and performed well today."
Man of the series is Virender Sehwag. He also wins the most admirable player of the series and wins a car. He won a similar car in the Test series as well. Tony Greig says he will end up with a garage-full of cars!
Kumar Sangakkara now steps forward to lift the cup!
That's it from us. Thanks for logging on. Please do jump to the England v Pakistan game.
Sudhi with more sarcasm!: "I think Dhoni waiting for last 2 overs.. so that he can hit 12 sixes and win the match for india"
