Yuvraj, saved by a whisker

What a thrilling win!

India won its third best chase ever, thanks to brilliant knocks by Sachin and Sourav. Robin Uthappa was the icing on the cake. This is a lad who has guts and great temperament. A future captain, maybe.

The most interesting feature of the match for me had something to do with Yuvraj. His post match histrionics for the camera betrayed his relief at India winning despite his last over costing us thirty runs.

Yuvraj won't go the 'Chetan way'. The reasons that have bailed him out are, thankfully for him, Mascarenhas missed out on the first ball of his over, after which he thumped the next five balls for sixes. More than anything else what's truly bailed him is, India won. Else he would always be remembered as this decade's Chetan Sharma.
