"We had a poor game today".
Riding on half-centuries from Rohit Sharma (91), Shikhar Dhawan (68), Virat Kohli (81*) and Yuvraj Singh (53), India posted a huge total of 319/3 from their quota of 48 overs in a rain curtailed match. "But I think his innings was a difference in the game", he added.

The outspoken Afridi, who played 398 one-day internationals and retired from worldwide duty previous year, had a caustic take on the efforts of his former team-mates at Edgbaston on Sunday.
"We were below par", Arthur said.
Amir bowled 8.1 overs before developing severe cramp and leaving the field, while Wahab, who conceded 87 runs in 8.4 wicketless overs in the most expensive spell of five-plus overs in tournament history, hobbled off after twisting an ankle. "Throughout the innings, if you hit your areas well, in a place like England, fast bowlers always come into play with wickets".
That said, the man who stole the show with his brilliant hitting was none other than Yuvraj Singh.
