END OF OVER:
20 | 8 Runs 1 Wkt | PAK: 181/6

Spoo: "Dinda: Overs - Runs - Wickets - 1st spell 2 - 24 - 0. 2nd spell 2 - 12 - 3 That too in a pressure sitauation. Talk about redeeming yourself."

I'll have the presentation for you shortly. Dinda bowled a match-turning second spell but Yuvraj will walk away with the prize for his many sixes and a wicket.

Yuvraj is the Man of the Match for his best T20 score. "Yesterday I was batting in the nets and I couldn't middle a single ball, so I was trying to spend time in the middle. That yorker [which hit him on the boot] reminded me of Wasim Akram but that's cricket, you got to take a few blows ... we thought 160-170 was a good total but if MS and me stayed till the end we knew we could score more."

They have a Man of the Series as well and that award goes to Mohammad Hafeez.

Hafeez: "When we were bowling, we didn't follow the basics, we bowled short of a length. the partnership between MS Dhoni and Yuvraj was the difference. In the first six overs we played very well but in the seventh-tenth over we didn't score as much as we should have ... we wanted Umar Akmal to have more time in the middle."

Dhoni: "A lot depends on the youngsters bowling the last overs, I think they held their nerve nicely. they were feeling the pressure but they responded really well and executed the yorkers. When they wanted to bowl slower ones they did that. [While batting] we got off to a very good start from Gautam and Jinks ... Yuvi was at his best, those big sixes and fours. We got ten runs more than what we would have been happy with. Overall it was good competition between the sides."

Hafeez and Dhoni are receiving the trophy together for a tied series. Smiles all around.

That's all we have for you today. The one-day series begins on December 30, do join us then. Cheers.

Sharma to Umar Gul, OUT, caught at deep point! Gul threw his bat at a length ball and sliced it over the infield. Rahane ran in from the deep to hold the catch. India get home by 11 runs to level the series 1-1.

Sharma to Umar Gul, 1 wide, that's a wide outside off stump, so India and Motera have to wait a minute longer

Sharma to Shoaib Malik, 1 run, another delivery on the blockhole, Malik drives to cover, Kohli raises his arms and does a little jig in the outfield

Sharma to Umar Gul, 1 run, in the blockhole, Gul can only drive it to long off for a single, India will win if Ishant can bowl two more legal balls

Sharma to Umar Gul, FOUR runs, in the slot outside off and Gul drives with power, finding the gap on the cover boundary. Pakistan need 15 from three.
