Bhuvneshwar-Kumar-INDIA-v-PAKISTAN-3rd-ODI
In what turned out to be a thrilling encounter between two arch rivals, India beat Pakistan by 10 runs while defending a modest 167 runs. The Men in Blue were once again led from the front by MS Dhoni, who scored a vital 36. Dhoni also effected two dismissals in this match while keeping wicket; this took his career ODI tally to the 200 mark.

Earlier, during his innings, the Indian skipper finally got out on home soil in ODIs for the first time since March 2011. During this period he played eight innings and scored a whopping 506 runs. Here are these and many more stats highlights from what turned out to be an amazing rivalry game:

This was the second match between India and Pakistan at Feroz Shah Kotla. Both sides have now won one match each here.

Shami Ahmed was making his ODI debut. He became the 195th player to represent India in ODIs.

Ishant Sharma was playing his 50th ODI. Interestingly, he became 50th Indian to do so.

MS Dhoni was dismissed in an ODI at home for the first time in 8 innings, after scoring 506 runs. Before today, he had last lost his wicket at home against Pakistan at Mohali in March 2011.

India’s total of 167 was the lowest total by any side in the first innings of a match at Feroz Shah Kotla. New Zealand’s 179/9 against India in 1999 was the previous lowest.

Saeed Ajmal’s figures of 5 for 24 are the best by a Pakistan spinner in India and fourth best by any spinner against India anywhere.
Harbhajan Singh and Ashley Giles are two other bowlers to have captured five wickets in an innings at this venue.

Ajmal's superb figures are the second best by a Pakistani bowler in a losing cause in ODIs..  Imran Khan had captured 6 for 14 against India at Sharjah on March 22, 1985.

Presentation:
R Ashwin: "Everybody bowled well, especially Bhuvneshwar. We picked up wickets in the middle. This win is a great morale booster ahead of the England series"

MS Dhoni: "160 wasn't enough. But I told the team that yes it is not enough, but the team should compete well. The spinners did a great job but the men of the match were the fielders in this game. Bhuvi started well, then Ishant bowled well with a not-so-new ball. Jadeja and Ashwin supported each other well too. It is important to learn from each and every game and this is young side and there is learning for everyone. Bowling line-up was a big positive this serie. Yes, there was help for bowlers, but we bowled well as a unit."

Nasir: "I started well today, but unfortunately didn't last till the end. The pitch was difficult to score in the second innings. Thanks to the crowd, it has been great all this series."

Misbah-ul-Haq: "Indians bowled very well, their fielding was outstanding. We tried to see off the new ball, but the ball was doing things even after that. It was difficult to score runs. Plenty of positives this series, specially the fast bowlers and Nasir Jamshed. It was a great series, tightly contested and today we had another tight game."
