In reply, riding on Rohit's brilliance, India made 201/3 in 18.4 overs.

England lost four wickets for 46 runs in the middle overs that restricted their momentum, and in the death overs, they lost another five wickets in the space of 14 balls. And now, getting back on the 3rd T20I, it is a must-win game for both the side.

Chasing a decent target of 199 on a small ground, India made a bright start with 21 runs on board after the second over but opener Shikhar Dhawan (5) got out immediately as Jake Ball made a fine diving catch at short fine leg. You can watch video highlights of IND vs ENG here.

The Mumbai batsman had missed a chance to score a hundred when India took on Ireland in June this year after he was dismissed for 97 in the first of the two-match T20 series. England and India have played 96 matches between.

MS Dhoni: 3/10 The former team India skipper did not contribute much with the bat scoring just 33 runs in three matches. Unless Willey strikes in those first few balls, England look set for a long session in the field. Hardik Pandya played along with Rohit and eased the burden.

England put on 94 for the first wicket between top scorer Jason Roy (67) and Jos Buttler (34) but after the latter was bowled by Siddarth Kaul the run-rate slowed and they eventually limped to 198 for 9. Four wickets for Pandya 4/38 was career-best figures for the Indian all-rounder in T20Is. India lost 3 wickets in first 6 overs for 30 runs and from there is became hard to the side to come back. He took at least one wickets in the nine consecutive ODIs before these three matches.

Kaul finally ended the carnage by rattling the stumps as Buttler tried to swipe across the line.

Since 2016, the English batsmen have raked up most number of runs when it comes to the 50-over format - 14,297 (1,533 runs more than the second highest team).

Veteran M S Dhoni was at his best behind the stumps, taking five catches and effecting one brilliant run out in the last ball of England's innings to get the wicket of Chris Jordan.

At the halfway stage, England were 111/2 but Pandya then dented England's surge as Morgan top-edged a back of a length delivery which Dhoni smothered, clattering the stumps in his follow through, and Hales was caught behind.
