    Its has to be Mahela and that too by some distance he just paced his innings so well despite the pressure of the situation, GG and Dhoni's knocks were also pretty good but they had the luxury of batting depth which Mahela clearly didn't.

    Also on the day the Indian bowling for the most part of the innings was pretty tight whereas in comparison the Lankans were all over the place with their bowling.

    Similarly, if India had actually lost the game I think these knocks may have been viewed differently.

    Did you watch India's death bowling?

    He said "most part" tbf. His point is well made, as soon as Malinga's spell ended SL couldn't go an over without half of it being pressure-releasing tripe.

    Indian bowling and fielding was really good in the knock out phase was probably the best fielding side in the last phase of the tournament.

    To make other batsmen look good, yes. Otherwise you have "India has worst bowling attack" thread
