Dravid: "The bowlers did a great job to come back on a flat track. We pulled it back. We [Kallis and I] had a partnership but we needed that big over. McGrath... was the difference in the game really. We were just one big over away. From now on in, we can't afford to lose many games. I think we are getting there, we are gelling well as a unit now.

Sehwag: "Gambhir played exceptionally well. I just told him that you play the twenty overs, don't worry about the runs. It's easy to captain; I just need to throw the ball to McGrath, Asif and Vettori and they do the job for me.

McGrath is the man of the match. "This is a batsman's game but when you get the score like 190 + on the board you get more room. For a old bloke, I am hanging in there. You got to think on your feet, you got to mix it up.

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on.
