New York: Frustrated after rain interruptions forced a tie in the fourth ODI against England, Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said the "ugly side of cricket" came to fore in the match as the side which had the upperhand "didn't want to play."
Sunday's tie gave England the five-match series after the first game was washed out and the hosts won the next two. India had set England a formidable target of 281 in the match before rain interruptions forced a tie with the hosts at the Duckworth-Lewis par score of 270 for eight.

"We just saw the ugly side of cricket. Whichever team has the upper hand, doesn't want to play. Whichever team is not on winning side, will stick around and even play football. That's what people do and that's what both sides did," Dhoni said after the match. (Also Read: Statistical highlights: India vs England, 4th ODI)
