Well, that is all that we have for today. It was a bit of a disappointment that the game did not live up to expectations but that's how it goes sometimes. Do join us tomorrow for another double-header as Sri Lanka take on South Africa in the first game followed by England against New Zealand. Till that time, it's goodbye from us.
Amit Mishra is named the Man of the Match for his bowling spell. He says that he just did what he practiced in the nets and Dhoni was very supportive with the field placements. Looks forward to do well in the future games.
A match that did not live up to the hype. India comfortably winning their opening match with 7 wickets in hand. Earlier, Amit Mishra did lead the spin attack restricting Pakistan to a below-par total. The chase was expected to be a cakewalk and that is exactly what it turned out to be. India did lose three wickets but Kohli and Raina made sure that they romped home without too much fuss.
