West Indies

West Indies win a very entertaining game. It was really enjoyable to watch. The teams shake hands with each other. Gayle is as emotionless as well. Mr Cool! Bravo has been accused in the past of playing pretty 30's and 40's and not finishing the job. Today, he made sure he wouldn't hear that complaint against him. Hang on for the post-match quotes.

Dhoni: "It was disappointing to lose. We didn't get a good start, me and Yuvraj tried to turn it around. I should have stayed for the slog. The batting didn't work today. Hopefully, it will come good for the next game. Hopefully we won't collapse and put a big score on the board."

Gayle: I am very pleased about how we performed. We took lots of catches. The credit to the guys. Yuvraj played a good innings to pull it back for India. Superb innings from Bravo. I must really commend him. "

Man of the Match: Bravo: "It's a great feeling to do it at Lord's. It started on the field. We restricted them. I got an opportunity to bat up the order. Now we play against one of the better teams in the tournament - South Africa."

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on. It was great fun bringing you this game. See you tomorrow.
