The third One-Day International (ODI) played between New Zealand and India at Eden Park, Auckland ended in a thrilling tie. It was only the seventh time India was involved in a tied game in the history of ODIs.

The first time a game involving India that ended in a tie happened back in 1991-92 season in the Benson and Hedges tri-series match between India and the West Indies at Western Australian Cricket Association (WACA) ground. Sachin Tendulkar took the wicket of Anderson Cummins to help India secure a tie.

In the Hero Cup in 1993, Zimbabwe tied the game against India at Nehru Stadium, Indore. While chasing a target of 249, Ali Omarshah’s knock of 37 took Zimbabwe to doorstep of victory, before the game ended in a tie.

The next time India was involved in a tie was against South Africa at Boland Park, Paarl in 1997. After an initial burst from Zimbabwean swing bowler Eddo Brandes, India found themselves in trouble before Robin Singh’s pyrotechnics took India close to a victory. Finally, R Singh was run out and both teams ended with 236 runs on the board.

In the ICC World Cup 2011, England and India were involved in a pulsating high scoring encounter at Bangalore that ended in yet another tied game. Ajmal Shehzad, the tail-ender smashed a six to help England tie the game.

In 2011, in a rain curtailed game between England and India at Lord’s, the match ended in a tie via the Duckworth Lewis method (D/L).

In 2012 at Adelaide Oval, India tied the game with Sri Lanka. It was MS Dhoni who played a captain’s knock to take India to a score of 236 and tie the game.

The just concluded match between New Zealand and India at Eden Park, Auckland was the seventh occasion on which India was involved in a tied game. In a high scoring encounter with batsmen from both sides easily being able to clear short boundaries, Ravindra Jadeja’s knock of 66 of 45 balls helped India to tie the match. Incidentally, it was the fourth occasion on which Indian captain Dhoni was taking part in a tied match.
