15.24 (IST): So, thats that then. MS Dhoni & Co. have pulled off a spectacular finish to a game that was looking to follow a similar script from the first two games. However, Dhoni, Ashwin and Jadeja had different plans altogether. The tie has helped India hold on to their No.1 ODI ranking and stay alive in the five-match series. They cannot win the series from here but two wins in the next two games will give them a chance to level the series 2-2. Whether Dhoni can pull that off, remains to be seen.
