New Delhi, January 06:

India has won the final one-day international against Pakistan at the Ferozshah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi by 10 runs, albeit losing the series 2-1. After a catastrophic batting performance by the Indians, which saw them getting all out for 167 within 44 overs, the bowlers did well to pull things back, and help the hosts register their first win in the series by dismissing Pak on 157. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and debutant Shami Ahmed not only controlled the flow of runs, but also added pressure on the visitors by picking up wickets at crucial interval. Ravindra Jadeja also impressed with the ball giving away just 19 runs in his 10 overs along with picking up the wicket of Umar Akmal. Pakistani batsmen used a cautious approach as they were left to score 24 off the last four overs with four wickets in hand. However, India dismissed three batsmen in quick succession to put the Pakistan chase in jeopardy, and eventually won a closely contested match. India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni praised the bowlers for doing their job well and HE was also addressed man of the match for his all round performance. Dhoni hailed Indian fielding and said their performance during the match was worthy of every bit of praise. Dhoni said the Indian team is full of young players and they need time to settle and learn from their mistakes. Pakistan captain Misbahul Haq also praised Indian bowling performance, saying they made life tough for the Pakistani batsmen. Nasir Jamshed was adjourned the man of the series for his two centuries in the three-match series. (ANI)
