We'll take you through the post-match presentation now.
The Man of the Match is Gautam Gambhir. "I've been hitting the ball well. When you get dropped from the side you try to rectify your mistakes and I think my hunger has increased a lot."
Mohammad Ashraful: "We were short 30-40 runs. Raqibul and I got a good partnership but we needed to get a 100-run partnnership. This was a good wicket to bat on."
Dhoni: "We have moved inches above the last series. The lower order hasn't got an opportunity to bat but we are prepared for the final." That's all from me here.
Phil on Gambhir playing against the spin: "Your comments at 29.6 evoked fond memories of Faroukh Engineer dancing down the pitch. An Engineer-ed ton."
HRG pings us: "Gambhir's 100 in this game represents the 150th hundred by Indian batsmen in ODIs. India is the only country in ODIs to have 150 hundreds."
