Tie result rankles McCullum


Auckland: He is disappointed that his team could not seal the series but New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum termed the third One-dayer against India as a “great game of cricket.”New Zealand put up a huge 314 on the board and Ravindra Jadeja stole a tied result for India with his heroic batting along with R Ashwin.

“Yes it is one that got away, but it was a great game of cricket nevertheless. All credit to India, because when they looked out of the game, they flexed their muscle a little bit and got back into it. Just when we thought we had it again, obviously they came back and (Ravindra) Jadeja playing that innings at the end was pretty awesome,” said McCullum.
