1: Suresh Raina became first player in Twenty20 cricket to register scores of 100, 99 and 98.


Dhoni gets the 'Nayee Soch' award for some innovative field settings. He had a couple of mid-ons in place.

Kumar Sangakkara: Dale Steyn bowled the right length, the others bowled a bit short and did not get the yorkers out. We know it's a bad performance, cannot think about this one, just move ahead.

MS Dhoni: Just like the last game where nothing worked for us. Raina unlucky not to get a 100, but lucky to get to 99. As I said before, we didn't really play the last game. Last game was a good wakeup call. Hussey has been brilliant, among the few cricketers who hasn't changed too much, does not play too many slogs. The only other batsman to do that is Rahul Dravid for the Royals.
Dhoni also hints there may be some changes in the team for the next game. Especially in the bowling.

Raina, man of the match: God has been kind, we won the game. Thanks to the fitness trainer, he's been doing a lot of work with us. Hussey's been very honest, working very hard with all Indian cricketers, good environment in the dressing room. Hope to keep up the good cricket.
