Yuvraj Singh’s dominating knock with the bat nullified India’s disappointing show in the 2014 World T20 where they lost to Sri Lanka in the final.
India defeated Sri Lanka in the final of the Road Safety World Series on Sunday by 14 runs.
WHO SAID WHAT?
Sachin Tendulkar: Incredible. This is what we have been here for, to win this trophy. This wouldn’t have been possible without the crowd support. In the last couple of overs we had to call the support staff to field and we have all been strapped really. This tournament is really important and I hope, as six teams, we have been able to spread the message across about road safety. I would like to applaud all the teams for coming in supporting us, this is one message all of us are trying to spread all around the world. Really pleased.
Yusuf Pathan, Player of the Match: Feels very good to play. This is my first series after retirement and really happy with the win. Last three games we played really good cricket, he’s (Yuvraj) been hitting them really well. Really enjoyed playing with my brother as well. Really enjoyed every moment of this tournament.
Dilshan, Player of the Series: Congratulations to the India Legends on the win. We bowled well in the initial overs but we dropped important catches and Yusuf took the game away from us. Happy with the boys who have played well throughout the tournament. Sanath batted really well. The Indian team bowled and fielded well. It was a good tournament, we all enjoyed it. We had some great crowd and great facilities.
