India Innings Highlights:

1st 10 overs if Indian innings : I must say India were down in the first 10 overs loosing 10 wickets. Stuart Broad bowled brilliantly. Sehwag was bowled by Broad in second over then Suresh Raina became his victim. Rohit Sharma was also out quickly. India were 43/3 and I think even Yuvraj Singh struggled a lot.

10- 20 overs : India 96/3 which means good recovery. Yuvraj and Gambhir played slowly in this part. the 11th and 12th overs were maiden. Yuvi hit a solid six in the last ball of 20th over which was great.

20-30 overs : India 163/4 lost Gautam Gambhir in the last ball of 30th over in this period but had this part of the match was one of the best parts of the innings. Yuvraj had started smashing a the ball.

40- 50 overs : India 292/9. Yusuf Pathan was the main highlight of the last 10 overs. Pathan made 50 runs in just 29 balls and his 4 sixes were brilliant. Though Yuvi was gone in 43.4 over, he had done a lot of damage and Yusuf Pathan did his best. India managed 82 runs in the last 10 overs. 

England Innings Highlights
England got a target of 293 which was not a so hard to chase but was really the fighting total.

First wicket as run out in first over made England really nervous , they had to lose Ian Bell for 1. Then other opener Matt Prior and Shah tried to make a patnership which then was broke out by Hero of first Inning 'Yuvraj'. Owais Shah went for 58 and Proi9r for 38.
Then all the collapse happened.
Pieterson and Flintoff tried a great effort and after them it was all in India's way. Yuvraj took 4-28 0f his 10 whereas Sehwag got 3 wickets.

Eventually England were all out for 238 off 47 overs.

Spendid action from Yuvraj ( century and 4 wickets) made the all-rounder MAN OF THE MATCH
