DanielAlexander (South Africa): "Played Sri Lanka! what a year this has been for Sri Lankan cricket"

Joy unconfined from them, the team are being engulfed by their fans who have leapt the barriers, Chandimal being chaired off but the whole team did well to beat back a competitive Afghanistan who for a significant part of the game were putting themselves in a winning position. Until they came up against Sri Lanka's bowlers spearheaded by Isuru Udana that is. People think it's batsmen who win games, actually more often than not it's bowlers. Afghanistan bitterly disappointed - their second consecutive Asian Games cricket silver after doing so much right. Nevertheless, Sri Lanka are deserved champions on South Korean soil.

Thank you for being with us throughout these past two weeks of women's and men's cricket from Incheon, we have seen much to warm the spirit and recall in years to come. The medallists even more so than us. How they have wanted those ounces of precious metal!

For now, it's the ACC's Ainnur and Hamidah and Shahriar from Incheon, with the ever-present Raju and Uncle Binoy back in Bangalore and Chennai, signing off.
