Indian cricket team saved its humiliation

The third ODI between India and New Zealand at Auckland had been taken to the rope and the match ended in a tie finally reliving Indians from another humiliation. New Zealand registered a target of 315 for Indians with a brilliant century of M. Guptil. K. Williamson also scored a solid 65. Shami and Jadeja took 2 wickets each. While defending the target, Indians showed a shabby start. Though Dhawan and Sharma could score a few runs, but the Indian top order failed to meet the level of expectation. It was the Dhoni Ashwin partnership and later Ashwin Jadeja partnership that took India out of the danger zone. When glimpses of hopes had started showing for the Kiwis, Jadeja scored a brilliant 15 runs in the last over that rescued India from another humiliating defeat and retained Indian cricket team in the contest. India has to win the remaining two to avoid the series defeat. Ravindra Jadeja had won the Man of the Match award for obvious reasons.
