TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 7.80, 103 Mins)156/6
Fall of wickets: 1-7 (KL Rahul, 2.3 ov), 2-20 (Rohit Sharma, 4.4 ov), 3-24 (Ishan Kishan, 5.2 ov), 4-64 (Rishabh Pant, 11.1 ov), 5-86 (Shreyas Iyer, 14.3 ov), 6-156 (Hardik Pandya, 19.6 ov)
2.3 to KL Rahul, Wood storms through the defences of Rahul. Fullish and nipping back in sharply after hitting the pitch, 146ks. Rahul aims leg side, his bat comes down at an awkward angle, and does so late. He is bowled through the gate for back-to-back ducks. His scores in this series: 1,0,0. 7/1
4.4 to RG Sharma, Wood bounces over Rohit! This is why Mumbai Indians wanted him in the IPL last year as a replacement for Malinga. Rohit backs away outside leg, Wood follows the moving batsman with a lifter and cramps him on the pull/hook. Rohit can only flap it away as far as short fine leg, where Wood's partner-in-crime Archer takes a tumbling catch. 20/2
14.3 to SS Iyer, Iyer was looking to ramp it over deep third man. He instead, slaps it squarer to deep point, can't clear the bigger square boundary. Iyer was threatening to jump across off, then ends up backing away outside leg. Wood bangs it so very short and shifts his lines wider. Iyer loses his shape and holes out. Kohli shakes his head. Another great outing for Wood. 86/5
5.2 to Ishan Kishan, Jordan now bounces out Kishan! Another fast-bowling masterclass from England. The pressure is relentless. Dug in short and holds its line outside off, Kishan aims to swat it away across the line but can only top-edge that swirls high in the air. Buttler, with the big gloves, runs back and smartly tracks it down. 24/3
19.6 to HH Pandya, Archer runs back from mid-off and completes a spectacular tumbling catch. Dug in short and outside off, Pandya aims to slog it over the midwicket boundary. But can only splice it to Archer who makes this difficult catch look ridiculously easy. Good finish from CJ and Archer. 156/6

Fall of wickets: 1-23 (Jason Roy, 3.3 ov), 2-81 (Dawid Malan, 9.4 ov)
3.3 to JJ Roy, reverse-swept straight into the lap of point. Roy missed reverse-sweeps v Chahal in the first match, got two away for boundaries. This time Roy holes out to Rohit. Pushed through faster on the stumps, Roy dares to reverse it from there but hits it weakly to the infielder. B Arun whistles from the dug out. He enjoyed that wicket. 23/1
9.4 to DJ Malan, stumped him That was a really quick one, 102 kph, and Malan beaten completely. Was dancing down the track, Sundar fired it in and got slight turn too, enough to get the ball spinning past the outside edge. Pant does the rest. 81/2
