Guyana's misery has been by chronicled by Siddarth Ravindran here. I now have two hours to go before the US Open final. Hopefully it will be tighter than this match. Just so that Alter. G can read and gnash his teeth, I'm outta here

Anil Kumble: "Perfect game. The first couple of overs were critical.Once Sarwan was out cheaply, the pressure was on them. The thought was always there [to boost the net run-rate], but you needed solid platform too. Rahul and Kallis did just that, for Robin to be able to tee off."

Ramnaresh Sarwan: "Majority of them have bever played in these conditions, and it is a learning experience. But we really need to learn fast. We need to."

Jacques Kallis is MoM. He says: "Coming back from a back injury, so couldn't put too much work in the lead-up. But we have got fantastic preparation. Credit should go to Ray. We got good nets, good net bowlers."

Ram is getting cheeky. He writes, "Sorry West Indies. Congratulations East Indies." And KM is worrying about those who love the English language. "OMG, poor Alter G. would be crying while reading the last paragraph.." Time for the presentation

Patrick writes in with a stunning bit of information. "Do you know the word "grandfathered" is a verb, which means - To exempt (one involved in an activity or business) from new regulations!" Seriously, I felt grandfathered would be similar as, well, err, fathered. Anyway let me use another irregular verb and say that Bangalore have bossed Guyana here. Bangalore were ruthless with the ball, efficient with the bat, and have a solid net-run-rate boost. Guyana looked out of their depth. The only positive being Barnwell's bowling. He has some promise, bowls nice slower legcutters. Bravo-like almost

Barnwell to Uthappa, SIX runs

stunning! slower ball first of all, mis-timed second of all, but this keeps sailing and sailing. And sailing. Over long-on. His bat is huge. It doesn't have a leading edge. It has a leading face

Abhishek Shukla: "not sure about Grandparents day, as i never met my Grandparents. BTW, One of the great legends of country music, Johnny Cash, died after a short illness on this day in 2003." Okay I will listen to I Walk the Line and Ring of Fire today. Uthappa is the new batsman, by the way
