crashes the final delivery of the day uppishly to right of Guptill who makes a brave effort to catch it but the ball bursts through his hands .. Sehwag gets across to the other end and shakes hands with Guptill
Do read the bulletin by Sid Monga.
That's the end of the Test match. Greatbatch had said prior to the series that they would like to draw two Tests. They have already done so and both teams enter Nagpur with a chance to win the series.
Meanwhile Pakistan need 202 from about 40 overs to win the Test against South Africa. Much fun awaits there!
Vettori: "Yesterday the openers started so positively and put us in a good position. I am so pleased with the top-order batting. Brendon going to top and McIntosh coming off a pair ... to score a double hundred in second innings in India is something special.
I enjoy being the focal point of the bowling attack and hope i do well in the next Test."
Dhoni: :"Indian wickets with a bit of grass .. the grass grows and it looks better for batting as the game goes. We got couple of wickets but Zaheer got injured and went out .. Sehwag had niggle with shoulder; so couldn't use him. we just had one part-timer in Raina. I would still consider Harbhjan as specialist bowler rather than putting pressure on him by giving him the tag as an allrounder. It's [harbhajan's batting] a good sign for our batting. Hopefully Nagpur pitch will assist spin a bit more. That's what we are expecting. Hopefully it will be a match where we can get a result out of it."
Man of the match is Brendon McCullum: "It was quite important for us to bat some time and score some runs; else we were in danger of losing the Test. So far it has been good starts (opening the batting). So far its been thoroughly enjoyable and a different challenge. When you are a strokemaker you always want to find the right tempo. sometimes you are guilty of being over aggressive. YOung Kane has been outstanding in these two Tests and he has already proved he is a valuable part of our team."
And Chris Gayle is out for 333. That's it from us. See you later.
