That is that. Venkatesh Prasad stars in another India-Pakistan World Cup game and this time he bags his maiden five-wicket haul. Earlier, India's batsmen weren't at their best but they still scrapped their way to 227 thanks to some late blows from Dravid and Azhar. The fireworks go off in Manchester and India are still in with a chance of making the semi-finals. On the other hand, Pakistan have lost three in a row and are in danger of being knocked out. Thanks for reading. Goodbye and cheers.

Wasim Akram, Pakistan captain: I think we made things difficult for ourselves. We have to work really hard. Happy for Azhar and the Indian team - they were the better side today. We have to learn to occupy the crease and will come back hard. We should just leave the boys alone. I have belief in them, but we have to work hard to qualify for the semis.

Mohammad Azharuddin, India captain: The boys really played well and everyone stuck to the job. We kept getting wickets and tremendous bowling from Prasad, Mohanty, and everyone. I definitely felt that we were 25 runs short, but no complains after winning the game. I think the atmosphere has been good and really happy with that.

Venkatesh Prasad, Man of the Match: I should thank my team-mates, everyone chipped in with the wickets except Mohanty but he was unlucky. This is my first five-wicket haul, I think we felt it was a good wicket and we could defend that.
