Tendulkar didn't get his century but right now India is cruising towards victory. For the first time in ten World Cups, the host nation will be victorious!
Spare a thought for Jayawardene. For the first time, a batsman scores a beautiful hundred in the World Cup final and his team will end up losing!
India need 35 runs off 36 balls with six wickets intact.
Update: 30 off 30. Sri Lanka need a miracle.
Update: 5 off 12. It'll be over soon.
Update: India defeated Australia, Pakistan and Sri Lanka to become the world champions. MS Dhoni ought to be the Man of the Match.
What a great tournament for Sachin Tendulkar. It has been a long two decades of cricket for him. And near the end (or perhaps the very end?) his team has won the ultimate title.
Update: MS Dhoni is Man of the Match and Yuvraj Singh is the Player of the Tournament. Both were at the crease when the winning runs were scored.
A glorious World Cup final for India and a sad, second successive final defeat for Sri Lanka.
After ten World Cups, Australia have four titles, the Asian giants have won a combined four and the once-great West Indies two.
The other "big" teams, namely England, New Zealand and South Africa, just can't seem to perform at the highest level at a World Cup.
