Match Stats: India batting first posted a score of 186 for the loss of 5 wickets from their 20 overs; thanks to an excellent display of power hitting by Suresh Raina and Yuvraj Singh. South Africa in their chase came close to the Indian total but, a loss of a few quick wickets in the end meant that they only manage 172 runs on board. India thus won the match by 14 runs. Raina was made the man of the match.
