    Nice to see some Yanks getting in on the action!

    84 runs to win from 86 balls? Not that hard at all. We just need to keep our wickets and play smartly. Gautam Gambhir has really stepped up, still on 89, not out. Yuvraj and Raina are still to bat as well. Malinga is dangerous though, as is Muralidaran.

    They're currently below the required run rate. Like steve said, they need a run per ball from this point. That's not gonna be easy

    This looks like it will come down to the last couple of balls. Gambhir is closing in on a century.

    Murali has been toothless. As have all our bowlers bar Malinga.

    Still one powerplay to go, it is imperative that we get a lot of runs then.

    Dhoni reaches 50 with Gambhir on 90.

    How is everyone watching this, by the way? Stream, tv?

    Gambhir didn't need to play a big shot then. Bit stupid from his part, but well bowled, Sri Lanka. Yuvraj now on.

    11 from 16 is all India need now after that boundary. And another boundary.

    India 7 runs from winning now.

    What a way to go out. That was crushed by Dhoni for six to win the World Cup.
