player of the match

India have completed a comprehensive win here at Kingsmead, Durban The team are in a huddle out in the middle, savouring the moment no doubt It all began with Tendulkat smashing the cover off the ball for 50 at the top of the innings Wickets then fell and India stuttered Dravid shored up the middle order with a useful 62, Yuvraj batted fluently for his 40 odd and India coiuld post 250 from 50 overs No one could have been prepared for what came after Srinath and Zaheer Khan beat the bat repeatedly but could not really get among the wickets Then came Ashish Nehra.

An amazing spell of sustained pace, swing and movement off the wicket saw Nehra take 6/23 from 10 overs and wreck the England batting line up England never really recovered, although Andy Flintoff batted brilliantly to reach 64 off 73 balls India however were just too good on the day and collect four valuable points from this match There's really no doubting who the Man of the Match will be, although we need to wait for the official presentation ceremony that will no doubt declare Ashish Nehra as the Man of the Match It's official. Ashish Nehra is the Man of the Match!
