Cricket World Cup: India defeats Pakistan


And it’s all over… Pakistan’s innings come to an end, 231 all out to India’s 261. The tension in India must have been incredible, although for the last half-hour there has been the sense of inevitability about India’s eventual victory.

Today’s result sets up a fine Sri Lanka v India final on Saturday in Mumbai – with a compelling individual subtext, pitting two of the all-time greats against each other – the best batsman v the best bowler: India’s Sachin Tendulkar (judged today’s Man of the Match) and Sri Lanka’s Muttiah “Murali” Muralitharan.
