What a thrilling finale it is! India won a final match after a long time, that too against a relatively friendly Pak. The victory oscillated between the teams with increasing amplitude closer to the end of the game. India, after a considerable time, bowled out opposition to win a match. I think the last few overs, except the last ball, took the match to Pak but the last wicket made a difference.
In fact, India almost gave the match away by
- Not scoring 170+ on a batting-friendly wicket
- Over agression of Sreesanth leading to a couple of costly overs
- These couple of overs from Harbhajan et al costing too many runs
- Not experimenting with part-time slow/spin bowlers
However, the last wicket mattered.
Good game teams, worth spending 3 hours!
