and a wide finishes the job
Well, that was emphatic, Australia strolling to a nine-wicket win, the first time they've beaten India in a Twenty20. It was Australia all the way from the off, with some superb fielding which set their tone. Michael Clarke's captaincy record is two in two. What a crowd tonight, and they're celebrating the win and Adam Gilchrist's last Twenty20 too.
While we're waiting for the Man of the Match, you can always log in to fantasy cricket of course.
Here's the losing captain Dhoni. "We lost a few early wickets. I think some of the guys failed to realise they have a role. If we learn from our mistakes we will come back strongly." And as for Tendulkar: "I asked him whether he wanted to practice for the IPL match and he said no, he wanted to have a break and I said: 'Yah, that's good for you'."
And Clarke comes to the podium. "What a fantastic performance, the crowd were fantastic. Before we walked out on the field tonight the boys were so excited. Dave Hussey in his first international game did a great job. We did our research, we had a look at all the players, the bowlers knew their plans." Clarke is also the Man of the Match, and a deserved one given his fielding, captaincy and then batting.
Thanks a lot for joining us today, sorry about the technical glitches, and we look forward to you coming back soon.
