Commentary (Pakistan innings)

Right then, that's all we have from this match. Hope you have enjoyed the coverage. Until next time, on behalf of the scoring and commentary team, it's good bye and cheers!!!

Misbah-ul-Haq is being handed the winner's trophy and his teammates are posing for the photographs. They were superb in the series and leaving alone the loss today, they completely bossed India.

MS Dhoni gets the Man of the Match award, while Nasir Jamshed (241 runs) is the unanimous choice for the Series award.

Fielding can win you matches and this match proved it. The Indians were defending a paltry total but courtesy some excellent fielding, they made the opposition sweat for every run. Like Pakistan, the India pace bowlers were also superb and troubled the opposition with the new ball. Misbah-ul-Haq (39 off 82 balls) batted over cautiously in the middle overs which allowed the home side to come back in the contest. The spinners were superb, specially Jadeja, who bowled a miserly spell, while with three wickets in the match, Ishant Sharma was the best bowler on show. Debutant Shami Ahmed also impressed in the pressure game!

Phew! What a match! Adrenalin rush, goose bumps, increased heart rate and in the end the side holding onto its nerves better comes out trumps. It was a low scoring game but had all the entertainment. India will be pretty pleased with the fight they showed but still it's Pakistan who have won the series 2-1. This is the fourth lowest total defended by India.

48.5 I Sharma to M Hafeez, OUT! India win by 10 runs and avoid the clean sweep! Ishant lands a length delivery on middle at 138.8 kph, Hafeez aims to pull it over mid-wicket but fails to get the elevation. Yuvraj manning that region does well to take the pressure catch and straightaway sprints in joy. The whole blue brigade is running after him and has mobbed him. What a game we had! Terrific atmosphere and it was a typical India-Pakistan humdinger! 157/10

48.5 I Sharma to M Hafeez, Drama! A high full toss on middle, Hafeez turns it to short fine leg. Confusion in the middle over a single as Irfan is almost at the other end. The fielder parries it to the bowler who fails to deflect it on to the stumps. That was out had he hit! 157/9

Complete confusion over the run, Khan is almost at the other end and Hafeez sends him back. Raina in the meanwhile recovers well in time and scores a direct hit at the striker's end. Gone for all money and the atmosphere here at Kotla is electric. 145/9

Commentary (India innings)

Right then, that's all we have from this match. Hope you have enjoyed the coverage. Until next time, on behalf of the scoring and commentary team, it's good bye and cheers!!!

Misbah-ul-Haq is being handed the winner's trophy and his teammates are posing for the photographs. They were superb in the series and leaving alone the loss today, they completely bossed India.

MS Dhoni gets the Man of the Match award, while Nasir Jamshed (241 runs) is the unanimous choice for the Series award.

Fielding can win you matches and this match proved it. The Indians were defending a paltry total but courtesy some excellent fielding, they made the opposition sweat for every run. Like Pakistan, the India pace bowlers were also superb and troubled the opposition with the new ball. Misbah-ul-Haq (39 off 82 balls) batted over cautiously in the middle overs which allowed the home side to come back in the contest. The spinners were superb, specially Jadeja, who bowled a miserly spell, while with three wickets in the match, Ishant Sharma was the best bowler on show. Debutant Shami Ahmed also impressed in the pressure game!

Phew! What a match! Adrenalin rush, goose bumps, increased heart rate and in the end the side holding onto its nerves better comes out trumps. It was a low scoring game but had all the entertainment. India will be pretty pleased with the fight they showed but still it's Pakistan who have won the series 2-1. This is the fourth lowest total defended by India.

48.5 I Sharma to M Hafeez, OUT! India win by 10 runs and avoid the clean sweep! Ishant lands a length delivery on middle at 138.8 kph, Hafeez aims to pull it over mid-wicket but fails to get the elevation. Yuvraj manning that region does well to take the pressure catch and straightaway sprints in joy. The whole blue brigade is running after him and has mobbed him. What a game we had! Terrific atmosphere and it was a typical India-Pakistan humdinger! 157/10

48.5 I Sharma to M Hafeez, Drama! A high full toss on middle, Hafeez turns it to short fine leg. Confusion in the middle over a single as Irfan is almost at the other end. The fielder parries it to the bowler who fails to deflect it on to the stumps. That was out had he hit! 157/9

48.4 I Sharma to M Hafeez, FOUR! Boom! What a great piece of batting by Hafeez! Length delivery wide outside off, offering ample width, Hafeez pounces onto it and muscles it over covers for a boundary. 156/9

48.3 I Sharma to M Hafeez, A slower short delivery on middle, Hafeez pulls it through mid-wicket for a couple of runs. 16 needed off 9 balls. 152/9

48.2 I Sharma to M Hafeez, FOUR! Hafeez is keeping Pakistan alive here! A fuller length delivery wide outside off, Hafeez climbs onto the room and powers it over point for a boundary. 150/9

48.2 I Sharma to M Hafeez, Wide! Wild delivery wide outside off, Hafeez shapes up for the paddle shot but misses. 146/9

48.1 I Sharma to M Hafeez, Spears in a fuller length delivery on middle, Hafeez drills it straight to Raina at mid off who misfields. No run taken by Hafeez, he wants to keep strike! 145/9

Time to get underway! Gautam Gambhir and Ajinkya Rahane are walking out in the middle. Mohammad Irfan to steam in with the first new ball. Two slips in place. Here we go...

In spite of the cold atmosphere and this match being a dead-rubber, it's a jam-packed stadium. The conditions are foggy and the fast bowlers would be looking to exploit it. The Indian openers need to be very watchful against the likes of Junaid Khan, Umar Gul and Mohammad Irfan.

Pakistan - Nasir Jamshed, Mohammad Hafeez, Younus Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq(c), Shoaib Malik, Umar Akmal, Kamran Akmal(w), Umar Gul, Saeed Ajmal, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Irfan.

India - Gautam Gambhir, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni(w/c), Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shami Ahmed, Ishant Sharma.

MS Dhoni has won the toss and India will bat! They have made a couple of changes, bringing in Shami Ahmad (debut) and Ajinkya Rahane in place of Ashok Dinda and Virender Sehwag. For Pakistan, Umar Akmal is back in the playing XI, replacing Azhar Ali.

Pitch - The wicket is a flat one and looks to be on the slower side as well but dew will be a factor later on. Wasim Akram reckons, it's a bowl first wicket.

It's freezing cold here in the capital city with the temperature hitting around 2 degrees Celsius as we welcome you all for the last ODI between India and Pakistan at the Feroz Shah Kotla. The series for the home side also has been a cold one and they will be playing for pride here to avoid a clean sweep. Pakistan, on the other hand, have looked the better of the two sides and would be eyeing a 3-0 finish to the series before heading back home. Altogether, if both teams perform to their potential, expect the mercury to rise!!

Complete confusion over the run, Khan is almost at the other end and Hafeez sends him back. Raina in the meanwhile recovers well in time and scores a direct hit at the striker's end. Gone for all money and the atmosphere here at Kotla is electric. 145/9

47.2 S Ahmed to S Ajmal, OUT! Another one bites the dust! Good length delivery wide outside off at 136.5 kph, Ajmal flashes his blade through the line and edges it behind. Dhoni takes his 200th ODI catch while it's the maiden ODI wicket for Ahmed. The crowd is going berserk. 145/8

It was yet another hapless batting performance by India and it is getting worse for them with every passing game. The top-order is looking completely out of sorts and barring the partnership between Raina and Dhoni, the rest just succumbed. They have just 167 to defend and let's see what their bowlers have in store for us. Join us in a short while...

Tremendous bowling show by Pakistan to bundle out India to a paltry total. Their pace bowlers were right on the money from the onset and didn't allow any partnership to blossom for the home side. They also kept pegging India back with regular wickets and were just superb with their line and length. The magical off-spinner, Saeed Ajmal, also left a big impact in the game by picking up a five-for and completely rattled the lower order.

43.4 S Ajmal to R Jadeja, OUT! Second five-wicket haul for Ajmal and he is all smiles, his best ODI bowling figures as well.
