Do you think the Indians bowled exceptionally bad, or was the Australian batting exceptionally good?
A bit of both. They did bat brilliantly but our bowlers too had a touch of nerves. The first over was a very poor one. After that things just went on like that, without any control.

Till a point, the final was actually a close match, wasn't it?
Yes, I did believe we had a chance, but once the wickets began tumbling and the required run rate started climbing it was all over.
