India keeps series alive

WELLINGTON - India kept the one-day series against New Zealand alive with a nerve-wracking tie in the third match at Eden Park in Auckland on Saturday.

Needing 19 off the final over for the win, and with just one wicket in hand, India came agonisingly close to beating New Zealand's 314 all out off 50 overs.

Ravindra Jadeja belted 15 off the last over, with three wides from Corey Anderson adding to the final tally and leaving the scores level.

The Black Caps looked to have done enough to wrap up the five-match series after picking up the key wickets of Virat Kohli for six and captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (50).

But Ravichandran Ashwin (65) and Jadeja resurrected India's hopes in putting on 85 for the seventh wicket, with Jadeja's unbeaten 66 off 45 balls proving everything but a match-winner.

Anderson couldn't deliver with the bat, managing only eight, but proved lethal with the ball and finished with figures of 5-63, including the key scalps of openers Rohit Sharma and Shikha Dhawan.
