6:05pm That concludes our coverage of this second T20I, with India locking the series. But remember, the final game is tomorrow - yes back-to-back games - and our crew will be here bringing you all the action as it happens. Hemant's report will be up soon, so keep an eye for that. For now, on behalf of Chandan, Venkat and Hemant, this is Sudarshanan signing off. Adios!

Stat from Sampath: 19th consecutive win as Indian captain for Rohit Sharma across formats. Only one captain has had a longer streak in men's internationals - Ricky Ponting (20 in 2003 - all in ODIs)

Bhuvneshwar Kumar, player of the match: "When ball swings, you definitely enjoy. In the last few years, there is not much help with the ball in England but this year it's more. White ball getting swing upfront is a motivational factor for fast bowler and batters have to take their chances. We know Buttler is a dangerous player. If ball swings I go for a wicket and it works. If ball swings, it motivates you to do things against a particular batsman. Honestly I don't want to talk about injuries. If anyone asks me the same in India, I don't answer it, sorry. I am playing so it seems it's good."

Rohit Sharma, India captain: "We all know how good they are wherever they go, not just in England. We were clear what we wanted to do. When you win games, it's always nice. The group is also confident, which is very important. We will look to continue and focus on what lies ahead. Wanted to see how we do after a win and will look to challenge us as a group. Brilliant knock under pressure [from Jadeja] and Jadeja with his experience of the hundred in this ground was calm and collective. At no point we were feeling he was panicking. Was good to finish on a score we thought was par on that surface. We do understand the importance of the powerplay, whether we bat or bowl. Our powerplay in both games was superb and want to give guys confidence to continue. We do want to give the guys sitting on the bench some chance and will go and discuss with the coach. We are moving in the right direction and the only red flag I see is we can't get carried away."

Jos Buttler, England captain: "Very disappointing. I don't think we played well enough to consider batting first as an option. [On Gleeson] Fantastic debut given the guys he got out, although a disappointing result. CJ always bowls the tough overs and is naturally under pressure a lot of the time. Gets the result most of the times, delighted for him."

5:49pm A thumping win for India to register their fourth-successive T20I series win over England. They seal this one with a game to spare. Superb performance from India's bowlers, led by Kumar and Bumrah who shared five between them. England couldn't quite recover from those early jolts and the end was merely a formality even though Moeen and Willey struck some blows in the second half.

It should be a bit of a concern for the Buttler-Mott combo as their batting has come cropper for the second game in a row. None of their batters barring Moeen and Willey passed the 19-run mark. India would have to give this win to Jadeja's knock of 46 not out, rescuing them from a precarious position after Gleeson and Jordan pegged them back. The bowlers ensured that the 170 was enough in the end. Not to forget, a 14th successive T20I win for Rohit as captain. Back with the presentation soon.

Kalkitha: "Wondering if Morgan would have chosen to field first in this match after winning the toss"

Nisha Uniyal: "What's the record for the highest consecutive T20I wins as Captain?" Thailand won 17 successive women's T20Is under Sornnarin Tippoch's captaincy, if i remember correctly.

Harshal to Willey, 1 run

But Willey manages to get to the other end. Yorker on leg, squeezed to short fine leg, where Bumrah stops it with a dive but doesn't prevent the run.

Long-on, midwicket, third man all inside the ring. They are trying to stop the single?

Well bowled. Yorker outside off, sneaks under Willey';s bat.

Willey makes position early to play the scoop but misses it after Harshal bowls it on a length outside off.

Harshal to Willey, SIX runs

Almost a catch but Axar falls over the boundary cushions with the ball. Willey looks to go across the line and slices it to the man at deep backward point. Axar looks to parry it in but fails to do that.

Last over for Harshal. Three fielders in the deep on the off side as he runs in from over the wicket.

Bhuvneshwar to Parkinson, no run

Fuller on middle and leg, defended towards midwicket.

Afeef: "Bhuvneshwar's contribution is definitely what set up India dominance today, but Jadeja deserves a lot of credit for batting the way he did on a highly tricky pitch"

Bhuvneshwar to Willey, 1 run

Length ball slanting away, pushes it towards short third and hares to the other end.

Bhuvneshwar to Gleeson, OUT

Slower one on a length, Gleeson doesn't pick it early as he looks to go downtown. Ends up skying it high enough for Kohli to judge it perfectly after running to his right from long-off.

Hardik to Willey, FOUR runs

Willey picks up a boundary. Back of a length ball around middle and leg, he goes onto the back foot and heaves it over wide mid-on.

England are falling apart quickly. Debutant Gleeson is at the non-striker's end.

Hardik to Jordan, 1 run, OUT

Terrible mix-up and Jordan has to trudge back. Back of a length ball on middle, he works it through midwicket and always wanted two. Chahal charges in from the deep and returns a good throw to Rohit at the bowler's end, despite being off-balanced as Willey was never interested in the second. Jordan is not even in the frame.

Chris Jordan run out (Chahal/Sharma) 1 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100

Chris Jordan. Fresh off heroics with the bat in the T20 Blast.

Hardik to Moeen Ali, OUT

Whatever was said has worked! Hardik gets Moeen and it must be the final nail. Length ball slanting away, Moeen is on the back foot and looks to hit it over mid-off. Mishits it straight to Rohit there.

Moeen Ali c Sharma b Pandya 35 (35m 21b 3x4 2x6) SR: 166.66

A lengthy chat between Hardik and Rohit.

Srividya : "Indian fans should not forget the fact that England are not yet out of this contest. Moeen is highly capable! "

Hardik to Moeen Ali, SIX runs

Just about clears Kohli at deep midwicket! Length ball angling away, Moeen stands tall and heaves it over deep midwicket for half a dozen.

Hardik is back.

Has it gone the distance? Yes it has! All timing there from Moeen. Floated full outside leg, he moves away and mows it down the ground. Long-on stood no chance.
