It was sweet revenge for India as they clinched the ODI series against England by taking an unassailable 3-0 lead after a comprehensive five-wicket victory in the third one-dayer in Mohali on Thursday.
After England scored a competitive 298 for four, the home side rode on Ajinkya Rahane's 91 and Mahendra Singh Dhoni's calculated onslaught to overhaul the target of 299, with four balls to spare.
Dhoni (35 not out off 31) and Ravindra Jadeja (26 not out off 24) added 65 runs in an unbroken sixth-wicket stand to take the team to victory at the PCA stadium.
India needed seven runs to win from the last over, bowled by Tim Bresnan, and Dhoni hit two consecutive fours off the first two deliveries to take his side to 300 for five and signal victory.
