With two runs required off the last ball, Ashwin chose to do a 'Ranatunga walk' for the first run and reluctantly ran the second, only to be run out, denying India a 3-0 win against the visitors.

|Sebastian Vettel with the Mayawati Statue|
The chief minister has already put up statues of herself all over the state and wanted to gift the winner immediately after the race. However, F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone and FIA president Jean Todt persuaded her that the gift must be presented at the FIA heaquarters.
In the press conference that followed, Vettel said that he would carry the statue in his car in all future races and will lose weight to compensate for the statue's weight. It is also learnt that Ms Mayawati has already spoken to Ecclestone, Todt, and the Jaypee group to handout Mayawati plush toys at next year's Indian GP.
