and that's that! A half volley on the pads, Harbhajan flicks it wide of the fielder at fine-leg to score the winnings runs, the fireworks go off outside the stadium
India have won by four wickets. They certainly lost more wickets than they would have liked and plodded towards their target in the final overs, but it's a victory and they'll take it.
Munaf Patel and Irfan Pathan struck the decisive blows early on as England were restricted to a mere 125. Fifty runs more and we could have had a contest but 125 was far too little. India finished the chase in the 30th over to bag their first points of the tournament.
Man of the Match: Munaf Patel for his 3 for 18 off eight overs. He bowled a fabulous line, hardly gave the batsmen any room and extracted enough movement off the pitch to flummox England's top-order.
That's it from us at Cricinfo today. It's been a pleasure bringing you today's game. South Africa play New Zealand at the Brabourne Stadium tomorrow and we'll be live at 2pm local time. Do join us then. Meanwhile, have a pleasant Sunday evening, cheers!
