Hilfenhaus is run out. He went down the track and dragged it to midwicket and set off for a single. He is sent back but too late. Yuvraj flicks it to Dhoni who breaks the stumps. India win by 99 runs and the series stands 1-1.
Join us in a short while for the post-match quotes. Meanwhile Bangladesh board have sent a short release: "The BCB President and the Board of Directors express deep condolences at the death of legendary umpire David Shephard. As a mark of respect the Match Officials and players of Bangladesh and Zimbabwe will wear black badge during tomorrow's 2nd ODI"
Ponting : "It was always going to be a hard run chase. The wicket was very good and it was a fantastic surface to play ODI. The dew didn't play that much a part as we though. Credit to India who outplayed us in all departments. Once the dew came in, we should have been just two wickets down but we had lost quite a few by then."
Man of the Match is MS Dhoni: "We lost Sachin early but Gautam Gambhir and Virender Sehwag provided the ideal start. Then Yuvraj Singh played well. The platform was given for me to come and do my stuff. We knew that with five overs of Powerplay left, if we can take it at 38 or 40 overs we can always get to a big total. One of those innings that was good. The wicket was good and I exploited that. If you recall India A series in Nairobi, me and Gauti batted a lot and ran a lot. Aashish [Nehra] has been the pick of the bowlers. He has always done well. It was good to see Praveen Kumar bowling well today. Ishant also. Jadeja . . Bhaji also ... The 148 against Pakistan, the 183 against Sri Lanka, the Afro Asia game were good ... This innings was good because it came after a long time."
