Bangalore, February 27
A sloppy India got their act together in the nick of time to escape with a dramatic tie against a spirited England in a nerve-wracking World Cup league match here today. The Indians rode on Sachin Tendulkar's (120) record fifth World Cup century to pile up 338 all out but a heroic batting display by England captain Andrew Strauss (158) and some toothless bowling allowed England to leave the match tied at a jam-packed Chinnaswamy Stadium.
