Mohali:  A billion people can exhale. India have won their cricket World Cup semi final match against arch-rivals Pakistan by 29 runs. Misbah Ul Haq was the last man out on the last but one ball of the Pakistan innings.

Ashish Nehra, much reviled a few matches ago, had Umar Gul leg before wicket to grab his second wicket and bring Pakistan to 208 for 9.

Needing another 38 runs from 18 balls with four wickets in hand, Tim Bresnan and Graeme Swann scored 18 runs off the 49th over, bowled by Piyush Chawla, including two sixes. In the last over, Ajmal Shahzad hit a straight six off Munaf Patel to bring down the equation to five needed off three. With two to get off the last ball, Swann hit the ball straight to mid-off and they managed only a single.
