In the end, England just about pipped India, and it was KP and Panesar that really made the difference. It was a bit of a surprise to not see Panesar not receive any awards, but he really decapitated the snake tonight. That's that from tonight's encounter though, as Rishi Roy bids you goodnight from Today livescore alongside Vineet Anantharaman and Mukesh Gowda. So long! Kevin Pietersen | England Legends captain | Man of the match: It's always nice to bat in India. These wickets are spectacular, the seamers are getting it to go, there's bounce, and it's just a really pure wicket. The crowd were fantastic. The noise really started when Irfan and Gony were hitting it in the end, and Tremlett and Sidebottom were forced by me to bowl the last two. The wickets are so good, the ball skids through, spins but doesn't grip so you can hit through the line, so I doff my hat to the groundsmen. Sachin Tendulkar | India Legends captain: It was incredible hitting towards the end, but we lost far too many wickets in the first six and that was critical. Even last March when we played SL Irfan played a crucial knock - quite a joy to watch. KP, the way he batted, didn't feel like he had stopped playing. He set the tone for them and continued batting till the 13th over. Incredible. You can plan in this format, but then leave it to the bowler, and such is the case with the batsman too, and however much you plan, sometimes things don't work. Viru has been scoring runs for us, in the first game last year and against Bangladesh, and it's nice to have the lower-order contribute as well, and they can hit a long ball and it was nice to see them take it so deep. 22:34 Local Time: An unbroken stand of 63 off 26 - but despite the valiant efforts of Irfan Pathan and Manpreet Gony, India fell just short. It was a testament to the heart they showed, however, that they were in the game until the penultimate delivery, and looked like they were going to pull off a heist, the way Gony was hitting it. Sidebottom, their best pacer, however, wasn't going to let that happen. It was Panesar, however, who ripped the heart out of India's batting, getting rid of Yuvraj, Kaif, and the mighty Tendulkar, before Hoggard snapped up Sehwag early on. There was some lethargic stuff from India after that, but the Pathan brothers and Gony ensured that India showed much-needed spine down low and didn't fold feebly after early blows.
