It wasn''t a big target and India achieved it without much fuss. They didn't hunt it down in any real hurry, just made sure they did the job without getting into any trouble. Another fine innings from Rohit. Hang on for the post-match quotes from the captains.

Porterfield "The wicket did a bit early on. They bowled well early on and we nicked a couple but we batted better later on. We fought really well. Losing Nial and Johnston wasn't easy but we are not going to make any complaints."

Dhoni The bowlers did well with the new ball; that is the positive thing we would take through the next game. We thought Zaheer just needed one more game to get into the groove and that's what has happenned." On his bat no 3: It just depends. We were trying out a few things. It feels good to be in SUper 8. Now on there won't be any easy games.

Man of the Match - Zaheer Khan "Good that I got a few wickets. This is my favourite wicket here. Bowling at the death is my strength. I can get a few yorkers in. Looking forward to Super 8. We are working well as a bowling unit. We have lots of bowling options. so far I haven't bowled my quota of four overs which is great."

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on. See you tomorrow.

McCallan to Dhoni, OUT

holes out to deep square leg. McCallan cleverly slowed up the pace on this one, tossed it up, Dhoni was down the track and was early into his big swing to the on side. The ball swirled down but the fielder, who initially seemed to misjudge it, does well to lunge out to take the catch
