Match State: India win by 8 wickets

A comprehensive win for India, hang on for the presentation


India and Zimbabwe head the points table

For a change there will be a tournament where South Africa don't win

all the prelim games

Welcome to the presentation ceremonies

Except for 1 runout, all the S African wickets went to spinners

Joshi finishing with the unbelievable analysis of 10-6-6-5

Chopra finished with 10-0-26-3 and Bhardwaj got his first

international wicket with 10-3-16-1

Derek Crookes taking both wickets for RSA but they came too late, a

first wicket partnership of 72 in just 10 overs

Trevor Quirk talks about a wonderful display of spin against "one

of the most consistently great sides in One Day internationals"

Hansie Cronje, the losing captain comes up

We had a 3 month break, didn't play well

Under these conditions India is a good side

Quirk and Cronje make the usual excuse about being back from a 3

month break

We don't want to take anything away from Joshi and Jadeja's


They were without four of their stars, the conditions suited them

Ajay Jadeja, the winning captain comes up and gets the 2000 US$


Incredible performance, one of the best days of cricket from India

I've seen, no wides and no balls

Joshi bowled fantastically, a captain couldn't have asked for more

We've been working on the fielding for the last 2 weeks or so,

hopefully it gives quick results

There's no better way than to start off with a win

The most predictable Man of the Match Award ever comes up

5 commentators from TWI award it to the obvious choice, Sunil

Bandacharya Joshi

I'm very thrilled, I was just hoping to turn the ball

The wicket was a 2 paced wicket, I just mixed up the deliveries

This performance is the best ever bowling performance against RSA

in ODIs

That's it from CricInfo. Join us for the 3rd game featuring a

revenge game, yesterday's winners against today's losers, Zimbabwe

against South Africa
