25th Jan 2014 Ind vs NZ, Ravindra Jadeja helps Indian team to tie 3rd ODI against New Zealand on the last ball of the game. New Zealand scored 314 with Guptill's century. Useful contributions also came from Kane Williamson (65) and Luke Ronchi (38). India was chasing New Zealand's target of 315. NZ Opener Martin Guptill scored 111 to reach New Zealand such a big total. Indian hopes were dead when India lost some quick wickets in the game.

Chasing the big score India lost 4 wickets at 79 when Dhawan and Rohit became fail for another time. In the end, Ashwin played a knock of 65 and Jadeja did the rest of the miracle with 45-ball unbeaten 66 to save India from the 3rd consecutive loss in the ODI series.

India needed 18 runs off Anderson's last over for a victory which looked almost impossible till the last ball of the match. Ravindra Jadeja and last man Varun Aaron could get 17 to tie the game in the final over. Finally, Indian hopes are alive and we still believe that India can win the rest of the two ODIs to level the series.

Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade appealed in a federal court to dismiss the visa fraud case against her the day after her return to India. Her lawyer Daniel Arshack submitted a four-page document for "motion seeking dismissal of action for lack of personal jurisdiction" on 09th Jan 2014. Devyani Khobragade was found guilty for visa fraud and making false statements. She flew back to India on an Air India flight after she got diplomatic immunity.

The US State department has assured Devyani Khobragade that her departure in compliance with their order does not constitute a violation of the terms of her release from the court on bond of $250,000 on the charges she faces.

Her lawyer said that since Devyani has been given diplomatic status, she has "automatically" been vested with diplomatic immunity from criminal liability in the US while she continues to maintain such diplomatic status.
