The trophy shared between India and Sri Lankan. 2013, India! Welcome to

:00:14.:00:26.

Edgbaston for the second semifinal in the 20 17th ICC champions Trophy.

:00:27.:00:31.

Bangladesh take on the holders India for a place in the Sunday's final

:00:32.:00:38.

against Pakistan who breezed past is England yesterday. India are

:00:39.:00:42.

overwhelming favourites for this one but Captain Virat Kohli will be

:00:43.:00:47.

aware of the fate that befell the favourites yesterday in Cardiff.

:00:48.:00:50.

Bangladesh have risen to sixth in the one-day rankings so India will

:00:51.:00:55.

be taking nothing for granted. It's a tournament that has contained

:00:56.:00:59.

plenty of upsets. Bangladesh have only beaten India once before in a

:01:00.:01:04.

50 over event so the odds are against them. Both teams are

:01:05.:01:07.

unchanged from their final group games. It's a memorable day for

:01:08.:01:18.

Yuvraj Singh, he makes his 300th career one-day international

:01:19.:01:23.

appearance for it India. Shikhar Dhawan, currently second in the

:01:24.:01:28.

batting table for the tournament will be looking forward to his

:01:29.:01:35.

chance. After a minor delay for the weather, the covers came off and

:01:36.:01:41.

Bangladesh openers Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar got things underway

:01:42.:01:52.

under the gaze of umpires Dana seiner and Richard Kettleborough.

:01:53.:02:02.

COMMENTATOR: The semifinal is underway. Another factor is that

:02:03.:02:12.

India have won the toss and elected to field, I think on the basis of

:02:13.:02:16.

the rain that came through. It wasn't forecast. I just wonder

:02:17.:02:22.

whether that is the right decision. Sides batting first in this

:02:23.:02:27.

tournament have won here most of the time. There has been one loss,

:02:28.:02:36.

Pakistan chasing against Australia. That's the first wicket to India.

:02:37.:02:40.

Dragged onto the stumps. They pounced early! May be nervous. It

:02:41.:02:53.

didn't look there to drive. Inside edge, dragged on. The stumps

:02:54.:02:59.

rattled. Great scene position from Kumar. A little inside edge. It

:03:00.:03:07.

wasn't there to drive. Could have been nervous. India first strike.

:03:08.:03:20.

Bumrah taking on the other new ball. Gets to the boundary. Unsuccessful

:03:21.:03:34.

dive. First boundary of the match. Nicely played. It will race away.

:03:35.:03:39.

Full of authority. Not a bad first ball to face. His opening shot.

:03:40.:03:47.

Thank you! Occasionally there was one. It doesn't have to be first

:03:48.:03:54.

ball though. What about the bat speed of that one? He's exciting to

:03:55.:04:06.

watch. Down the wicket. On the album, over mid-off. -- on the up.

:04:07.:04:14.

Orthodox cover drive beautifully played. If he plays like that, he'll

:04:15.:04:26.

be out there for. That is superb. Down he comes. He just gets enough

:04:27.:04:31.

of it. It will get to the boundary rope. We are seeing this aggression.

:04:32.:04:39.

Wonderful to watch. Again, use of the feet. Making him play, Sunday.

:04:40.:04:47.

Slightly inside out against the angle of Bumrah. Edge frowned. Races

:04:48.:05:05.

away. Paice livery. Third man had no chance. Another boundary for

:05:06.:05:12.

Bangladesh. Rocketing along. You have had a cabal with the leg

:05:13.:05:21.

glance. This was an leg stump. -- it cabal. Court. There you go. 13

:05:22.:05:36.

dotballs. You could feel the pressure building up. Kumar using

:05:37.:05:43.

all his experience and skill. Bogged down after and exciting start. Hit

:05:44.:05:55.

the ball in the air. There's a chance of getting out court. That's

:05:56.:06:03.

what's happened. It's a big wicket. Great pressure.

:06:04.:06:13.

Inside edge this time. Not a good shot from Mushfiqur. Bangladesh

:06:14.:06:25.

living on the edge. They've lost two wickets already. Another wicket here

:06:26.:06:33.

would really pushed them behind. Using his feet. Inside edge. Nice.

:06:34.:06:55.

That is a very good shot to watch. Getting good position. Very nice. It

:06:56.:07:04.

has just been an airy fairy start from Bangladesh at the moment. Even

:07:05.:07:12.

better one this time. Third boundary of the over. The previous one on the

:07:13.:07:18.

front foot. This time on the back foot. Best shot so far in this

:07:19.:07:25.

innings. Still miss timing it. Should get a couple of runs. 50

:07:26.:07:37.

comes up for Bangladesh. A big day for Bangladesh, up against a very

:07:38.:07:45.

good side. Bowled him! No-ball signalled again. Nothing behind the

:07:46.:07:59.

line. A couple of indiscretions from India in this over. Tamim Iqbal

:08:00.:08:08.

getting some misfortune. Not able to time the ball. He struggled in this

:08:09.:08:13.

innings but he gets a break. Can he make use of this? Can he pushed

:08:14.:08:18.

through? Can he find some rhyme and rhythm? Might have to bowl that

:08:19.:08:32.

again. Wide signalled. Hits it straight. That will go to the

:08:33.:08:43.

boundary. There are days like this for Tamim Iqbal when he's

:08:44.:08:48.

struggling. He shouldn't be throwing his wicket away. He shouldn't be

:08:49.:08:54.

loose. Well played. He's played that very fine. Won't get there. That's

:08:55.:09:06.

four runs. As we saw this morning, a little bit of rain. As we seen

:09:07.:09:12.

through the tournament, this outfield is lightning fast, even

:09:13.:09:15.

with that rain it hasn't really stopped the ball too much. Delicate

:09:16.:09:28.

shot. Those horror memories from the world T20 against West Indies when

:09:29.:09:32.

they bowled a couple of no balls that cost them the match. Scoop on

:09:33.:09:41.

the leg-side. Maybe a six. Yes! The arms go up. First six of the

:09:42.:09:46.

innings. Just the kind of release that Tamim Iqbal was looking for.

:09:47.:09:52.

Excellent batting, putting pressure on Panda. He's gone for 26 runs

:09:53.:10:04.

already. That's an excellent shot for six. Just running at the bowler,

:10:05.:10:15.

putting him under pressure. It's in the air. Just over the field. How

:10:16.:10:21.

lucky was Tamim Iqbal on that occasion? Once more, four runs. That

:10:22.:10:26.

will bring up his 50 as well. The leading run getter in the

:10:27.:10:30.

tournament. You can see from the reaction, not very proud of that

:10:31.:10:35.

effort. Semifinals of the champions Trophy. That means something. He's

:10:36.:10:43.

always intense. He wants the best from his team-mates. No one has it

:10:44.:10:46.

easy on the field when he is captain. Good shot. This time more

:10:47.:10:53.

control. Shikhar Dhawan was coming in to save the single and the ball

:10:54.:10:59.

sailed over his head. Good cricket from Mushfiqur Rahim. It was a tight

:11:00.:11:11.

over. Premeditated reverse sweep. Get away with it. Get the early

:11:12.:11:18.

boundary in the over which sets up the over nicely. Now it's about

:11:19.:11:25.

rotating the strike. Not too many dots. Shikhar Dhawan trying to hunt

:11:26.:11:32.

the single. Oh dear. Hang on. There's a shout from Tony. -- MS

:11:33.:11:41.

Dhoni. Not a very confident shout but he has sensed there is something

:11:42.:11:45.

and once the umpire to have a look at it.

:11:46.:11:57.

OK. Have you got a nice zoom on that front foot. The foot is down and

:11:58.:12:07.

behind. The decision is not out. This is going to be runs. Four runs.

:12:08.:12:35.

Slightly quicker, wider. He's paid the penalty for it. Ashwin might

:12:36.:12:45.

have thought that the batsmen is coming down too much. All a wider

:12:46.:12:52.

one. It's a defensive mindset. That is what he was expecting. Great

:12:53.:12:56.

shot. Put some pressure back on Ashwin. What a shot. This is another

:12:57.:13:07.

terrific shot. More runs for Bangladesh and timing a cabal. --

:13:08.:13:19.

Tamim Iqbal. That is swept away. Minimum of risk. They've kept

:13:20.:13:26.

themselves calm and just carried on. Initially, it was hard work after

:13:27.:13:28.

losing the second wicket in the seventh over. That's a little

:13:29.:13:39.

streaky. Another single. 154 Bangladesh. They are playing very

:13:40.:13:47.

well. There's a 50 as well. Mushfiqur has come out and has

:13:48.:13:55.

played in a solid fashion. After a wicket, it has allowed this

:13:56.:14:05.

partnership to grow. And bowls him! Isn't it amazing. This is the

:14:06.:14:10.

partnership breaker. The other element here is a bit of pressure

:14:11.:14:16.

built up. That's the breakthrough India needed.

:14:17.:14:21.

He created the pressure by bowling those tough deliveries. He

:14:22.:14:30.

completely misses it and it hits the leg stump. Good change from the

:14:31.:14:38.

captain will stop great captaincy to bring him on, and eventually getting

:14:39.:14:44.

a wicket. -- good change from the captain.

:14:45.:14:51.

It has got through. It is still going for four. Bangladesh need a

:14:52.:15:02.

boundary in the first ball or two, then they can rotate. That is a very

:15:03.:15:12.

good shot. The first boundary after ten overs. It's not an easy shot,

:15:13.:15:17.

but there was not much room in that delivery. . Tim! Good catch from MS

:15:18.:15:29.

Dhoni, up from the stumps. He has got the big wicket of Shakib Al

:15:30.:15:38.

Hasan. That brings India back into this game, Bangladesh losing wickets

:15:39.:15:47.

in quick succession. He tried to play the cut shot, having done that

:15:48.:15:51.

in the previous over. This time, outside edge, and are very good

:15:52.:15:56.

catch by MS Dhoni. The fourth wicket, and India putting on the

:15:57.:16:09.

brakes. -- and a very good catch. 177-4. A slow one. Virat Kohli is

:16:10.:16:17.

the man, just rushing the batsman. The batsman was not quite ready, and

:16:18.:16:32.

Mushfiqur, gone. A full toss, slower in the air. Mushfiqur had picked out

:16:33.:16:48.

the LB fielder at the -- picked out the only fielder at mid-wicket. Out

:16:49.:17:04.

for 61. 179-5. He got through. He had a few attempts at it but

:17:05.:17:09.

couldn't quite do it with the last ball of the over. Back-to-back

:17:10.:17:13.

boundaries and overs on the last ball. Fielder... He got to back

:17:14.:17:25.

hands do it but dropped it. He is not the quickest in the field, and

:17:26.:17:30.

that certainly came into play on that occasion. The legs just weren't

:17:31.:17:41.

moving. You never got the opportunity to stabilise himself. He

:17:42.:17:53.

had to try and take it on the move. He has dropped Mahmudullah. Swept

:17:54.:18:10.

away leg side. Wonderful fielding from Yuvraj Singh.

:18:11.:18:34.

Lets investigate what has happened outside. They will get an extra run.

:18:35.:18:46.

He just gets rid of the gloves, and when he flicks it onto the stumps,

:18:47.:18:52.

he has flicked it onto the stumps. Five penalty runs. A lovely shot.

:18:53.:19:10.

That's got to be four runs. This is the main reason he is in the 11th

:19:11.:19:16.

Bangladesh. This partnership is going nicely after the fall of those

:19:17.:19:24.

lovely of wickets. A wonderful cover drive from Mosaddek Reverse sweep,

:19:25.:19:28.

well played. It races away to the boundary. The

:19:29.:19:51.

shot generates so much power. It's not easy to do. Through the ball,

:19:52.:20:02.

stable base. Gan! A simple catch for Jasprit Bumrah. Virat Kohli looks

:20:03.:20:08.

relaxed and happy. Short ball does it. As Mosaddek was walking back,

:20:09.:20:22.

India got their six. Mosaddek, back in his crease, looking to get some

:20:23.:20:30.

leverage. Followed by Bumrah. An easy catch. 218-6.

:20:31.:20:49.

Shot pulled away, a couple of bouncers to the fence. Important

:20:50.:21:00.

runs for Bangladesh. India are still in the driving seat here. He can

:21:01.:21:18.

strike the ball. Nice! Nice from Bumrah. Here's a specialist at this

:21:19.:21:28.

stage. Attacking the stumps. You would expect the seaers to attack

:21:29.:21:33.

the ball. He got it absolutely perfect. -- seamers. Another wicket

:21:34.:21:58.

goes down. He goes for 21. 229-7. That is how you get through to pick

:21:59.:22:03.

up wickets. Short. That has gone to the boundary. Over the top of the

:22:04.:22:14.

keeper. That has gone. That has gone away for four. It is a good pass the

:22:15.:22:23.

keeper, and it has gone to the boundary. He is laughing, can't

:22:24.:22:26.

believe it. He's moving all over the place. He just picked up the

:22:27.:22:31.

boundary. Picking that one out, hitting it hard into the ground, and

:22:32.:22:36.

then passed the stumps and the keeper.

:22:37.:22:44.

Not for the first time, he has top edged one for four. The boundaries

:22:45.:22:57.

are going in the direction just over the top of the keeper. Another top

:22:58.:23:05.

edge, another boundary. A good start to the over with the first delivery.

:23:06.:23:14.

I am sure they will pick up runs in each and every delivery now. Another

:23:15.:23:27.

boundary. A diving Yuvraj can't catch it. Three boundaries in the

:23:28.:23:33.

last three deliveries. He gets in position early, knowing that if it

:23:34.:23:37.

is a short delivery, he will just smash it. This time, the offside,

:23:38.:23:43.

just away from Yuvraj Singh, and it just goes away. He's not happy. Last

:23:44.:24:01.

ball... Just one. Quite a decent comeback with the ball for India,

:24:02.:24:13.

courtesy of Ravindra Jadeja and Kedar Jadhav. STUDIO: Despite that

:24:14.:24:26.

dramatic start, Bangladesh came out swinging and past 144 the loss of

:24:27.:24:32.

the wickets at the halfway stage. Kedar Jadhav check their progress.

:24:33.:24:42.

Five wickets fell for 70 runs in mid-over. 264 feels under par on

:24:43.:24:57.

this pitch. Kedar Jadhav stop that early Bangladesh charge in its

:24:58.:25:07.

tracks. Bangladesh only managed 105 runs from the final 22 overs. Not a

:25:08.:25:11.

huge total, then, but something for Bangladesh to defend. The final and

:25:12.:25:24.

Pakistan await. COMMENTATOR: Only one slip. And India are winning.

:25:25.:25:40.

Pushing wickets is the key, transfer pressure back on to India. This

:25:41.:25:50.

opening pair have good form so far, especially Shikhar Dhawan.

:25:51.:25:57.

Beautifully timed by Shikhar Dhawan. Just using whatever pace there was.

:25:58.:26:10.

The man in form. It looked all too simple. The length offered, a little

:26:11.:26:16.

bit of width. Just a nice, easy punch to the offside. Hardly looked

:26:17.:26:20.

like he tried to force it at all. And raced away. The confidence of a

:26:21.:26:30.

man, the clear head, of a man in form.

:26:31.:26:37.

I just wonder if both Mashrafe Mortaza -- I wonder if Mashrafe

:26:38.:26:52.

Mortaza has been to shorten his line. Both of these boundaries have

:26:53.:26:56.

gone square. Width and length offered. Leading run scorer in the

:26:57.:27:02.

tournament, with his confidence, he won't miss deliveries like that.

:27:03.:27:11.

Straight into it, and a graceful shot from Rohit Sharma. He gets his

:27:12.:27:18.

first boundary. Rohit Sharma, languid flow, E 's and grace. --

:27:19.:27:30.

ease. Width offered, and threw the ball, generates great pace.

:27:31.:27:40.

Glorious. Probably the shot of the day so far. Graceful on the turf.

:27:41.:27:52.

Bent back me in the Caribbean style. -- bent back knee. Goodness! Hard to

:27:53.:28:04.

choose between the square drive and the efficiency of this push. 12 from

:28:05.:28:14.

the over, 25 without loss. Two shots in that over that would be good

:28:15.:28:31.

value for the entrance fee. He's just taking his spots here, Rohit

:28:32.:28:35.

Sharma, to be honest. He's in sublime form. Back of a lie, I think

:28:36.:28:42.

it might have been a bit of pace off the ball, but he just stood on the

:28:43.:28:50.

top of his toes. Beautiful timing. Minimal effort. You see that

:28:51.:28:59.

last-minute flick through the ball. Put away nicely, with authority,

:29:00.:29:06.

from Shikhar Dhawan. End of the over, 26 without loss.

:29:07.:29:18.

Time did well enough. It wasn't that short.

:29:19.:29:30.

125 kilometres per hour. Sat up. Not enough zip on that delivery. That's

:29:31.:29:55.

a beautiful stroke. Bounced it over that man behind point. With power.

:29:56.:30:04.

How good a cricket shot is that? How good a wicket it is. Not that bad a

:30:05.:30:11.

delivery. Just a fraction short of a length. He just stands and delivers.

:30:12.:30:17.

He's in terrific form. That is the shot of a batsmen in great touch.

:30:18.:30:19.

Off the back foot. Pull shot. Another boundary. First

:30:20.:30:37.

one through the off-side. The next one through the on-side. Highest

:30:38.:30:43.

runs in the tournament so far, Shikhar Dhawan. 50 partnership for

:30:44.:30:51.

both. All the time in the world. And it goes past the square leg fielder.

:30:52.:30:57.

Speaking about how he batted through the off-side and early on when he

:30:58.:31:04.

gets set, he gets a delivery on the off-stump he hits through the

:31:05.:31:11.

off-side. Once he is set, he starts picking different sides of the

:31:12.:31:14.

ground. That is why his batting is so dangerous. Oh! Six! Heaved it out

:31:15.:31:27.

of the blade. 16 of the over. It's an onslaught. That will take some

:31:28.:31:40.

stopping. Just off the leg. We've seen on this outfield throughout.

:31:41.:31:50.

Once the sun comes out it's very difficult to stop. Very good shot.

:31:51.:32:00.

Just flicks it leg-side. Not a great delivery. Shikhar Dhawan helps it to

:32:01.:32:11.

the fence. Might just find the gap here. It does. The crowd rise on

:32:12.:32:19.

their feet. Very strong reply from India. They've reached 87 now. That

:32:20.:32:33.

was short. Cracking shot. Didn't try to hit it too hard and found the

:32:34.:32:37.

gap. It went pretty quickly to the boundary.

:32:38.:32:49.

Simple catch to point. Mashrafe Mortaza gets a wicket. The captain

:32:50.:33:02.

picks up a wicket. He went down the track to try a forceful shot.

:33:03.:33:12.

Straight to the hands of Mosaddek Hossain. Around the wicket to

:33:13.:33:22.

Sharma. That's sloppy. Should have been a dotball. For runs instead.

:33:23.:33:29.

Such a dumb enough. You haven't put 300 runs on the board. The bowler

:33:30.:33:34.

looking really deflated after that effort. The captain is the one who

:33:35.:33:41.

picked up the wicket. He worked be happy seeing that going through.

:33:42.:33:50.

Just might have hit the matting area on the square. That is a very good

:33:51.:33:57.

shot. Put that away in style. Two boundaries in a row for road Sharma.

:33:58.:34:00.

-- rivet Sharma. 54 Mohit Sharma. -- 50 for Rohit.

:34:01.:34:29.

Very good shot. Such an instinctive puller of the short ball, Rohit

:34:30.:34:39.

Sharma. Just too good a pitch to bowl short. Especially to somebody

:34:40.:34:48.

like Rohit Sharma. Superbly done. The initial movement is forward and

:34:49.:34:53.

picks up the length very quickly. And put it away. Lovely shot. That's

:34:54.:35:08.

got to be for again. It's gone off the edge very fine. 12 runs from the

:35:09.:35:19.

over. Good shot. Wonderful shot from Virat Kohli. Straight bat. Brings

:35:20.:35:30.

him for. You don't see a straight drive from Virat Kohli often. Good

:35:31.:35:43.

shot. Timing takes it all the way through for four. Virat Kohli is

:35:44.:35:49.

starting to find his torch. Excellent stroke. Rohit Sharma

:35:50.:35:55.

looking good on 67. Bangladesh haven't got too many answers at the

:35:56.:36:06.

moment. Going for their best bowler, the Phase. Mohit Sharma just flexing

:36:07.:36:19.

his muscles. Good transfer of white, nice big stride. Solid transfer of

:36:20.:36:24.

weight onto the ball. It has flown across the surface here at

:36:25.:36:28.

Edgbaston. There's another class shot. These runs flowing. Hammered

:36:29.:36:45.

again. Absolutely. 17 of the over. These runs are flying along. No easy

:36:46.:36:57.

singles. What a shot. Just oozes class. Just picked the gap out.

:36:58.:37:08.

Mashrafe has to consider his options to create more pressure. Have to

:37:09.:37:17.

have some purpose. Short. Will that make it all away and be his 50?.

:37:18.:37:25.

That's four. That's 54 Virat Kohli, off 42 deliveries. India just 77

:37:26.:37:33.

runs away from winning the second semifinal. He pulls hard that should

:37:34.:37:39.

go to fence. Just picked the gap. Rank long hop. Brings Mohit Sharma

:37:40.:37:46.

onto 94. -- Rohit. Punches. Right on the money. That's a

:37:47.:38:03.

terrific punch. Terrific wrists in operation. Terrific shot. Punches

:38:04.:38:17.

down the ground. Just a short arm jab and it races away to the

:38:18.:38:27.

boundary. Just a short arm jab. Terrific bat speed. Races away.

:38:28.:38:34.

Stand tall. It is on the up. No movement, no bounds. Stand and

:38:35.:38:42.

deliver. Will it go down the field? No, it doesn't. It's his hundred.

:38:43.:38:52.

Don't know if it is four or six. Another hundred in one-day cricket

:38:53.:39:00.

for Rohit Sharma. His 11th hundred. Second against Bangladesh. His first

:39:01.:39:04.

hundred in the champions Trophy. And in the semifinal. Going to be a six

:39:05.:39:09.

signalled by the umpire. It's the ropes. Directly. It will be a 64

:39:10.:39:22.

Rohit Sharma. Signals by umpire Dana saner. He is on song. No boundary is

:39:23.:39:37.

too big for him. It goes all the way to the fence. He will be

:39:38.:39:42.

disappointed with the effort on the boundary. Mustafizur Rahman, the

:39:43.:39:49.

left-arm seamer didn't make an effort.

:39:50.:40:04.

Punches down the ground. Another four for Rohit Sharma. Top-class

:40:05.:40:23.

cricket shot. Mushfiqur Rahim sees the writing on the wall. Up against

:40:24.:40:28.

a very strong side. Very good batting line-up. 264 wasn't enough.

:40:29.:40:33.

Pitched up. Just the follow-through. Just shows the bat maker's name and

:40:34.:40:37.

it races to the boundary. Taskin Ahmed continues. One bounce

:40:38.:40:54.

into the fence. India not holding back. India need 32 to win. Virat

:40:55.:41:08.

Kohli 23 for another hundred. That's four of them. 150 partnership comes

:41:09.:41:17.

up. Superb on the front or back foot. If he bowls a good length,

:41:18.:41:23.

it's harder to get away. If you bowls short or overpitched, wrote --

:41:24.:41:32.

Rohit Sharma will punish you. For more runs. India within touching

:41:33.:41:39.

distance of winning this match. What a shot that is. Raced across the

:41:40.:41:45.

turf again. Have some of that. Well played wrote -- Rohit Sharma. The

:41:46.:41:55.

batsmen now set an entertaining the fans. It's a good length ball driven

:41:56.:42:01.

on the. Look at the face of the bat meeting the ball. For more. Some

donkey drops coming to help India get to the target very quickly. Just

12 needed now. He will be the quickest players to 8001-day

international runs. That's 8000 one-day international

runs for the Indian captain. For to win for India. Well, that's going to

:42:42.:42:50.

be for. India get the winning runs. He doesn't get the hundred but he's

:42:51.:42:54.

very happy. The fourth time India get into the finals of the champions

:42:55.:42:58.

Trophy and what a terrific performance from India. South

:42:59.:43:01.

Africa, they beat them quite comfortably. Here, against

:43:02.:43:07.

Bangladesh in the semis, another comfortable win for the Indian team.

:43:08.:43:13.

This turned out to be as comfortable for the chasing side as yesterday's

:43:14.:43:18.

game. India stroll into victory for the loss of one solitary wicket.

:43:19.:43:23.

Always going to be difficult for Bangladesh to keep India away from

:43:24.:43:28.

their under par total. It took them just over 40 overs to get there.

:43:29.:43:33.

Virat Kohli contributed 96 from only 78 balls. The opener Rohit Sharma

:43:34.:43:44.

saw it through. 11th ODI hundred. Put this knock into context for me.

:43:45.:43:50.

How do you feel about it? It was a great knock, especially when it

:43:51.:43:54.

comes on a winning note. Always memorable when you win the game and

:43:55.:43:59.

score 100. The last two games, as well, I was trying to get a big one.

:44:00.:44:05.

Unfortunately, couldn't get through. I was looking to get a big one

:44:06.:44:11.

today. It was brilliant. I just thought after playing a few others,

:44:12.:44:15.

it was all about you making a mistake and getting out. That was

:44:16.:44:20.

the idea. I kept telling myself that I should bat as long as possible and

:44:21.:44:22.

the runs would come. Not much to see here, the captain,

:44:23.:44:32.

Mashrafe Mortaza, picking up wickets. Everyone else was

:44:33.:44:38.

expensive. When we won the toss, I said we needed to have a clean,

:44:39.:44:44.

collected the performance -- collector performance to win the

:44:45.:44:48.

game. We have quality batsmen upfront. Both of those guys gave us

:44:49.:44:52.

a great start again, then I could come in and play my natural game.

:44:53.:44:59.

Not at any stage of the game did we let them away with anything, then we

:45:00.:45:04.

got those two wickets in between, and that stopped their momentum. I

:45:05.:45:07.

feel it was another complete game for us. It would probably be wrong

:45:08.:45:17.

to describe Kedar Jadhav as a surprise packet, but he got some

:45:18.:45:22.

important wickets. He is a smart guy and knows where to pitch the ball.

:45:23.:45:28.

Again, he implied himself really well. Those two big wickets really

:45:29.:45:35.

turned the game around for us. They could have been close to 300 if they

:45:36.:45:42.

had carried on. At 30 overs, you had 161 on the board. Once Kedar Jadhav

:45:43.:45:57.

came on, and the two wickets,... How much of that is down to experience

:45:58.:46:00.

at this stage of a global tournament? We have some young

:46:01.:46:08.

players. But we have some experienced players as well. I

:46:09.:46:14.

believe next time we will, strongly. Virat Kohli, you looked confident

:46:15.:46:19.

that from the moment you walked to the crease today. The other guys,

:46:20.:46:28.

the way they play, it really allowed me to come in and positive cricket.

:46:29.:46:35.

Last time, we probably had to play with a bit more patience. It is

:46:36.:46:39.

about adapting to the different situations. Going after 30, 35, I

:46:40.:46:50.

grew in confidence. When you do the short ball well, you know you are

:46:51.:46:58.

playing well. Shikhar Dhawan has come in after so long and has sad

:46:59.:47:04.

such -- has had such a wonderful tournament. Your thoughts on the

:47:05.:47:09.

final on Sunday? But, at the end of the tournament, it's the final, so

:47:10.:47:12.

we will approach that like any other game. It sounds boring again, but

:47:13.:47:16.

that is the mindset you have to take into big games. The side that gets

:47:17.:47:21.

less excited has a better chance of winning. We are playing really good

:47:22.:47:30.

cricket as a team. We might be bested in the final, but I am

:47:31.:47:33.

confident we will come up with the goods when the pressure is on. A lot

:47:34.:47:36.

of guys in the dressing room waiting for an opportunity. We are keen to

:47:37.:47:42.

get on and find out. STUDIO: Straight for us for India, winning

:47:43.:47:48.

by nine wickets. -- straightforward for India. They look to retain the

:47:49.:47:55.

trophy, and it has all the makings of an absolute cracker. Expect a

:47:56.:47:57.

colourful and very noisy full house. Just one more game to bring you, and

:47:58.:48:45.

it's the final: Pakistan versus India. Join us for the highlights on
