Watch cricket highlights of the Compaq Cup Final – India vs Sri Lanka – played on September 14, 2009 at Colombo.

Scoreline : India 319 for 5 (Tendulkar 138, Yuvraj 56*, Dhoni 56) beat Sri Lanka 272 (Kandamby 66, Harbhajan 5-57) by 46 runs

Sangakkara: “At the end it turned out to be quite a good game. When you are in form, you have to maximise the opportunities. We were in the hunt till the end. Kandamby was once again the lynchpin of our middle-order. If we had couple more wickets in hand, we could have maximised our powerplay. When you think positive, don’t worry about the conditions, trust your team-mates to do their job, you can do a lot. I would like to thank Paul Fabrace for his amazing work.” [on his dismissal] : laughs.. You find new ways to get out. It was probably the only way I would have got out there tonight.”

Most stylish player of today’s game: Harbhajan Singh gets a bike. “It was a very important for us to win. All the boys chipped in. We could have fielded and bowled a little better … My job was to contain the runs, put pressure and take wickets.”

Man of the Match and Man of the series Sachin Tendulkar : “It’s been lot of fun out there. The conditions were difficult. MS and Yuvraj played a special innings. Fantastic effort from Bhaji and supported by others. Good team-effort. I lost all my nails. Congrats to Sri Lanka for producing some fantastic cricket. I would also like to thank the crowd. The body is holding up pretty well. few cramps and stuff but it’s holding up pretty well.”

Dhoni [All’s well that ends well?] ” No really, You got to learn from your mistakes. We made quite a few today on field. As a team we didn’t field well. Thanks to characters in the side, we ended up on the winning side. It’s very special to us. We are winning here after a long time. If you are the second best team, you can’t make these kind of mistakes. Hopefully next time, we won’t give width and bowl short to Dilshan. As a Indian side, when you lose a Tri series, when you go to press box, you know what the first question would be! So, it’s a nice to win. Rahul accepted to bat in the top’; we didn’t want to shuffle him down the order as he can really bat well at the top.” [On whom you would like to dedicate this trophy?] To Raj Singh Dungarpur.”
