A Tie in World Cup 338/338

A tie at the Chinnaswam
On this day in 2011, India and England played out a World Cup classic at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. At the end of a day after 676 runs were scored, the two sides couldn't be separated. With two required off the final delivery, Graeme Swann hit Munaf Patel straight to the extra-cover fielder, Yusuf Pathan and could take only a single. Chasing India's total of 338, England skipper Andrew Strauss compiled a fantastic 158 that put to shade even Sachin Tendulkar's 120 before that. At one stage in the chase, riding on the partnership between Strauss and Ian Bell, England appeared firmly in control of recording a famous win before an inspired spell of bowling with the old ball from Zaheer Khan swung the match back in India's favour. In the end, a flurry of sixes hit off Piyush Chawla brought the visitors back into the game before the match ended in a deserving tie.
