Most sixes by an England batsman

Stats highlights from the Edgbaston T20 where England's captain Eoin Morgan set up a fine win

9 Number of times England have successfully defended a total of 180 or more in T20s out of ten occasions including this match. The only time they failed to do so was against West Indies in the 2010 World T20 (when they lost on D/L).

71 Runs hit by Eoin Morgan - the second-highest score and only the fourth fifty by an England captain in a T20. Paul Collingwood has hit the other three fifties, the last of which came against South Africa in Johannesburg in 2009.

229 Morgan's strike rate in his innings, which was the second highest in an innings of 50 or more runs by an England batsman. Ravi Bopara's unbeaten 65 against Australia in an unsuccessful chase earlier this year in Hobart had come at a strike rate of 240.7, which is the fastest fifty-plus innings by an England batsman in T20s.

7 Number of sixes hit by Morgan in his innings, which equalled the most hit by an England batsman in a T20. Bopara also hit seven sixes against Australia in the Hobart T20 earlier this year. The 11 sixes hit in their innings is the joint second highest by England. The most they have hit in a T20 is 15, against New Zealand in Auckland last year.

81 Runs hit by England after the 15th over in their innings - equalled the fourth-highest by a team in the last five overs of an T20 innings. The record for the most runs scored in the last-five overs in T20s is also held by England. They hit 87 runs against Afghanistan in the 2012 World T20 in Colombo. There are only six instances of a team scoring 80 or more runs in the final-five overs, three of which have been by England. Including this match, India have been on the receiving end twice. India's bowlers conceded 80 runs in the last-five overs against England in the 2007 World T20 at Kingsmead, Durban.

4 Fifties Virat Kohli has hit in consecutive chases in T20 internationals. He now has scores of 66, 72*, 57*, 54 while chasing in his last four innings. Kohli has hit six fifties in 12 innings and has 562 runs at an average of 80.28 while chasing.

66 Runs Kohli hit in this match - his highest score in international games on this tour. Kohli managed just 254 runs from 15 innings in England, at an average of 18.1.

17 Runs off the first over bowled by R Ashwin - the most hit off an India bowler in the first over of a T20 innings. The highest they had conceded in the first over of an innings before this match was 13, on three different occasions.

4 Catches held by Ajinkya Rahane in this match, which is the first time an India fielder has held four catches in a T20. Overall, Rahane is only the fifth fielder to achieve this feat.

100 Runs conceded by India's spinners in this match - the seventh instance when they conceded 100 or more runs in a T20 and the second instance in three games for them. They had conceded 101 runs against South Africa in the semi-finals of the World T20 earlier this year.

4 T20s lost by India while chasing with MS Dhoni remaining unbeaten at the crease. The last time this happened was in a match against New Zealand in Chennai in 2012 when India failed to get 13 runs in the last over with Dhoni stranded at the bowler's end for the last three balls.

7 Number of consecutive T20s India had won chasing before this match. The last time before this they lost a T20 when batting second was in the Chennai match in 2012.
