Priyam Garg credits bowlers

Happy here. It is just one step closer to what we want to achieve. I think our bowling attack is the best in this tournament. Our quicks bowl 140+ and our spinners do complement them really well. It isn't the first time that the openers are playing like this. They have been doing it for the last one year, they come from the same state, they understand each other and have good understanding while running between the wickets. I would like to focus on the same processes and treat the finals like just another game.

Not enough runs on the board: Rohail Nazir

Not enough runs on the board and the wicket looked good for batting in the second innings. We should have scored more and we had two decent partnerships in the middle-overs and when too many wickets fall the pressure obviously mounts and I had to score a boundary and that plan didn't work too. India were brilliant in the field and they took good catches and we were always on the back foot while batting. They batted really well and full credit goes to the Indian team. We always learn from the mistakes and we are confident that we will try to be more calm in crucial situations. Hopefully we will do well in our next (third place play-off) game.

Yashasvi Jaiswal - Man of the match

It is a dream come true for me. Really happy with what I did for my country, I can't express it in words. I'll never forget that I scored a hundred in the World Cup against Pakistan. It is just the start though, I have to work really hard in the future as well. We (Saxena and me) were talking amongst ourselves that we needed to stay on the wicket. They bowled well initially and we had to see it out. All of us, our support staff, physio, manager, they put in the effort and I want to thank all the Indians who prayed for us. We will try our best in the finals.

Nazir in angonising pain

Rohail Nazir cops a blow on his knee trying to grab a wide delivery from Aamir Ali. Nazir is getting some attention from the physio. He is leaving the field. With 15 runs needed from 99 deliveries, someone else to take up the captain's responsibilities. IND - 158/0

Less than 50 needed

It is turning out to be a pretty one-sided affair. Yashasvi Jaiswal is not offering the bowlers any sort of margin of error. Jaiswal is batting on 74 now whereas Divyansh Saxena needs three more runs to get to his half-century. India need 45 more runs to win. IND - 128/0 after 29 overs

Aamir Ali into the attack

Pakistan are desperate for an opening wicket here. Left-arm spinner Aamir Ali into the attack. He almost succeeds but the ball hitting Yashasvi Jaiswal on the pads seemed to miss the stumps. Divyansh Saxena hits him for a boundary over mid-wicket fence after that. IND - 65/0 after 16 overs

18:14 (IST)04 Feb 2020
50 up!

No problems for Indian openers whatsoever. After the first powerplay, the run flow has increased. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Divyansh Saxena are not looking to take any risks. Off-spinner Qasim Akram is searching for a breakthrough. Jaiswal hits two boundaries from his over. IND - 52/0 after 14 overs

Welcome boundary for India. An exquisitive shot from Divyansh Saxena through the cover and point fielders. First boundary for India after a gap of eight overs. The openers have been patient enough in the first powerplay. IND - 33/0 after 10 overs

17:44 (IST)04 Feb 2020
Maiden from Aamir

Pakistan bowlers are trying to put pressure on Indian batsmen with the new ball. Aamir Khan bowls a maiden over. However, there is no scoreboard pressure to make Indian openers panic early on in the innings. IND - 20/1 after 6 overs

17:38 (IST)04 Feb 2020
