And he finishes it off with a lbw. Typical Kumble. Full in length, on the off and middle and it slides in to catch Jones in front of the middle stump.
This is the largest margin of victory, in terms of runs, in the history of one-day internationals. They win by 257 runs. India went into this game, needing to win and win it big. And they have done it. Now all attention will be on Bangladesh v Sri Lanka game. If Bangladesh win, then the race would come down between India and Sri Lanka. If Sri Lanka win against Bangladesh, the net run rate comes into play. So get out your calculators and get ready to do some maths.

This is Sriram Veera, your commentator of the day, signing off. Please do switch to the West Indies v Zimbabwe game. West Indies require another 71 runs with 6 wickets and 15.4 overs remaining. Brian Lara is in the crease.
Kumble is back.
fuller, on the middle stump line, hit across the line, down to Ganguly at deep midwicket.
full and on the off stump, driven to the bowler
turns in from outside off, padded away
pushed through extra cover and he will take the run. Jones will be on strike. he took a wicket of his first delivery.
spins past Hemp's bat and into Dhoni's gloves
another seam-up stuff. Defended on the front foot
suddenly switches to seam-up. Quite a big inswing! how many variations this little big man has. Swings in from outside off and raps the batsman on the pad. Appeal goes up but it was struck outside off stump
tossed up a slow googly outside off, bit too wide to interest the batsman
Tendulkar removes the rock. Leverock. A flighted legbreak, short in length, outside off stump that turns ever so slowly and Leverock couldn't resist the urge to cut, and nicks it behind. Dhoni makes no mistake. Leverock as he walked out of the arena, acknowledged the crowd. Bermuda are nine down. Hemp might be left stranded.
long hop, shovelled away to midwicket. One slip in place.
This is going to be interesting. Tendulkar to leveROCK
legbreak on the off stump line, driven to long-off
SRT is into the attack.
turns down the leg side, padded away
on the middle stump line, defended on the front foot.
drifts in from outside off, dabbed away to square-leg.
Wallop! Hemp moves to 73. Tossed on the off stump line, Hemp leans forward and drives inside-out over cover.
leans forward to defend
Faisal chimes in with this. "Call me biased (for being a Bangladeshi), IMHO, either India or Srilanka will be eleminated from 1st round. Wanna know why? If Srilanka beates India, India is finished. If Srilanka is defeated by India then Srilankan run rate will fall. We will top that (incase we fail to beat Srilanka) in our last game against Barmuda. I really feel very sorry for Barmuda, for they are getting blasted by everyone. I do hope that they still keep their chin up. If they keep thir spirit up, who knows few years later they might come back tougher & win few matches"
floated outside off, Hemp tries to sweep but is struck on the pad. Point of impact outside off.
