3rd T20I, M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru 01 February, 2019

Toss won by England (decided to bowl)

India beat England by 75 runs

Man of the Match: Yuzvendra Chahal


So , that is that then, Virat Kohli has led India to a complete sweep over England, first winning the Test series, then the ODI series and now the T20 series


Yuzvendra Chahal's figures of 6/25 is the third best bowling figures for a bowler in T20 cricket


England lose 8 wickets for 8 runs in a span of 19 deliveries to hand India the match and the series


WICKET:  That's it, Kohli catches that and India beat England by 75 runs


WICKET: Jasprit Bumrah strikes now and England are now 127/9. Sudden collapse and it is almost over


WICKET: Chris Jordan goes now, Chahal picks up six and Dhoni affects a brilliant stumping


WICKET: Suresh Raina manages to keep his balance on the rope and catches that ball which almost sailed into the crowd and that ends Ben stokes' stay in the middle. Yuzvendra Chahal becomes the first India to get a five-wicket haul in T20 internationals


WICKET: Yuzvendra Chahal tosses that up and Moeen Ali looks to hit that for a six, but ends up giving a catch to Virat Kohli, and England are 123/6


WICKET: Jasprit Bumrah bowls the length ball and Jos Buttler hits that in the air and Virat Kohli completes a simple catch. England in big trouble at 119/5 in 14.2 overs


England needs 84 runs in 6 overs now with Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes in the middle


TWO IN TWO: Yuzvendra Chahal has done it again and this time he traps Joe Root right in front of the wicket. Root departs for 42 and England 119/4 now


WICKET: Eoin Morgan goes for the big shot and ends up giving an easy catch to Rishabh Pant, Morgan departs for a quick 40 and England now ina spot of bother at 119/2 in 13.3 overs


EXCELLENT OVER: Amit Mishra bowls yet another beauty to ensure England don't run away, England need 86 runs of 42 balls and they know it is achievable


DROPPED: Bowled so well by Mishra and young Rishabh Pant dives to ensure Yuvraj Singh drops that catch which was all through his


Virat Kohli's inexperience as captain comes through there. No need to bowl the part timer but he did and England are back in business with s 22-run over


SIX: Bowled that flat and Morgan gets another maximum away, so 20 runs from the first four balls and this over could well be the one that makes the difference


BACK TO BACK SIXES: Suresh Raina is brought into the attack and Eoin Morgan takes advantage of the part timer's bowling and makes up for the Mishra over


Amit Mishra bowls a great over there, giving away only 6 runs. England now 92/2 in 11 overs


WELL FIELDED: KL Rahul does the sweeper's job well at long on to keep that to just a double, saving a certain boundary


England on 86/2 after the end of the first 10 overs and they will be thinking that the chase is well and truly on, the big hitters are yet to come and two of their most experienced men are in the middle. India will have bowl very well to win this match in the last 10 overs


SIX: Joe Root comes down the track hits that way into the crowd, was bowled short by Pandya and Root pre-empted that and hit it through the line


England now up to 77/2 after 9 overs and Root and Morgan will have to play really well to take England home here and these are two men who would want a victory at any cost


BACK TO BACK BOUNDARIES: Mishra bowls that flat and outside the off stump and Morgan plays it through the covers and then plays an exquisite reverse sweep to get back to back boundaries


SIX: Hardik Pandya bowls that into the pads and Root lofts him into the stands for a big maximum on the leg side


England have been pegged back slightly and they are on 56/2 after 7 overs and it is Hardik Pandya who is into the attack now


WICKET: Amit Mishra tosses that up and bowls it wide outside the off-stump and Roy goes for a slog sweep and doesn't connect. MS Dhoni completes an easy catch to send the dangerous Roy for 32


BOUNDARY: Pitched up outside the off stump and Root gets that over the in-field. Powerplay is up and England are at a comfortable 55/1. The chase is well and truly on


BOUNDARY: Ashish Nehra bowls that short and it sits up nicely for Jason Roy who goes through with the pull and gets a sweet boundary for it

Their supremacy restored after a rare blip, India will go for the kill even as an angry England alight at the Garden City with fire in their bellies, setting the stage for a tantalising series-deciding third and final Twenty20 International.

A 4-0 triumph in a five-match Test rubber was followed by a 2-1 win in Virat Kohli's maiden assignment as ODI skipper, and the Delhi dazzler would look to translate that result into the shortest format also and conclude what has so far been a hugely successful winter on a high.

Trailing, surprisingly, 0-1 heading into the second T20 game in Nagpur, India were helped by a terrific display of death bowling by young Jasprit Bumrah, and an umpiring howler, in staging a fightback in the three-match series.
