At Bangalore, February 1, 2017 (floodlit). India won by 75 runs. Toss: England. Twenty20 international debut: R. R. Pant.
A closely fought series ended with a rout, as England lost eight for eight in 19 balls - the second worst eight-wicket collapse in international history. On a notoriously high-scoring ground, they had rated their chances of chasing down 203, and a third-wicket stand of 64 in 7.1 overs between Root and Morgan, who hit three sixes in three legitimate balls from Raina, suggested their faith was not misplaced. But Mishra's leg-breaks gave away only three in the 13th over, before Morgan and Root - who laboured slightly - fell in successive balls in the next, from leg-spinner Chahal.
The rest of England's order went down swinging blindly, displaying a lack of discipline unworthy of their abilities; in all, six batsmen failed to score. Chahal's final figures were six for 25, the third-best in Twenty20 internationals. Earlier, Raina had responded to the second-over run-out of Kohli with a punishing 45-ball 63 - his first Twenty20 international half-century since June 2010 - before India were restricted in the middle overs. But they managed 70 from the final five, with Yuvraj Singh carting Jordan for 22 in four balls, and Dhoni scoring what was, remarkably, his first fifty in his 76th T20 international. Umpire Shamshuddin asked to step down from on-field duty after his mistakes at Nagpur.
Man of the Match: Y. S. Chahal. Man of the Series: Y. S. Chahal.
