Yuvaraj smashed to 4, the hearts of India give a long breath . We won the Ausees, but I would say its for Yuvaraj and Raina partner ship. Unexpected 6 by Raina reduced the runs! And all were praying for a 4 and yes here it goes on Yuvaraj smash! What a victory! But has to prove it with Pakistan as well. India have to make up more, can see such low scores on board

I think the over of Brett Lee where in Yuvraj hit 3 fours really changed the complexion of the game. Till then Aussies were threatening to put pressure on India, but that over really relaxed the run rate and instilled confidence back in the chase. What was even better these were not slogs but proper cricketing shots. I think the master stroke was playing Raina instead of Pathan. Cheers! Ram

True, Pathan was the reason for the previous game. Most of us are happy when Pathan and Nehra were not into the team. Raina was unbelievable. As he scored low runs in previous match and he showed a great stroke at a crucial match like this. Virat Kohli was not showing up except for the first match. Hope Raina continues his play against Pakistan?!

surely the six hit by raina in the bowling of bretlee was a sweet answer to send back aussies. yuvi once again played superbly. before the start of worldcup, yuvi was finding hard to make his place in the team. now yuvraj is the man of the series contestent for india.

Well said..Yuvraj was not making good at the start and now he proved himself on this tough crucial match against the giant Ausees! He would have felt proud for he took the team to against Ausees. Expecting his best against Pakistan as well!
