Last Wicket:

Over 15.0  

India won by 7 wickets. An easy assignment for India to begin the tournament chasing a small target of 116 on a decent batting pitch at Gros Islet. Dhoni was right, this pitch hasn't taken any turn and the ball has come onto the bat nicely. Decent outing for Murali Vijay who has certainly cemented his role as an opener in even this format of the game.
