India beats England to win T20I series

After India's 75-run win over England in the third and final T20 global match in Bangalore, Kohli was at the press conference and gave a witty reply to the journalist who questioned his form as an opener.

England lost eight wickets for just eight runs as they threw away the chance of winning a Twenty20 series in India this morning. Prior to the collapse, the tourists had established a decent platform, with Eoin Morgan (40) and Joe Root (42) set, needing 86 from the remaining seven overs.

"It was a attractive wicket to bat on, very small boundary, and altitude as well". It is important match for both the teams as victor will be the series victor as 1st T20 won by England and second T20 won by India.

Dhoni and Yuvraj now thrash the England bowlers all around the park.

Rahul was bowled for 22 by Ben Stokes but replays later showed the umpire had missed the paceman overstepping the bowling crease. This news story is related to Latest/183286-Chahal-sinks-England-as-India-clinch-series-2-1/ - breaking news, latest news, pakistan ne.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni was the next man in and he along with Raina kept the runs flowing.

After a lovely half-century Suresh Raina was dismissed for a well-made 63.

When Raina departed for 63 India were 120 for 3 and poised for a big finish.

And Yuvraj Singh, he took the role of a punisher, hitting 27 runs off 10 balls.

Tottenham Hotspur peg back Manchester City in enthralling match
Maybe we were too relaxed, and we told them that at half-time. "They are Manchester City players, top players". Last week they were embarrassed by Everton 4-0 and here they are ready to take on a red-hot Spurs.

It will only benefit England in the long run when big competitions, like this summer's Champions Trophy, come around.

Virat Kohli would most likely be going ahead with the same combination which won him the match at Nagpur even though he would be tempted to drop either Raina or Manish Pandey and pick another all-rounder. Virat Kohli said: "In Bangalore, any total is chaseable".

"Our bowlers probably didn't execute as well as we did in the first two games", he said. Chris Jordan then came and went for 0, leaving England needing a mammoth 76 from the remaining 24 balls.

But this is where the game turned. He and Root combined to put on 47 for the second wicket. This was only the third six-wicket haul in T20Is after two from Ajantha Mendis.

After the match Morgan admitted that his wicket, and that of Root's, proved a crucial turning point.

Now the red-shirted England cricketers decided that anything the Test team could do they could do better as they went down in a flurry of headless shots to the innocuous looking Chahal and the death specialist Jasprit Bumrah. Spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was the star performer for the home side as he picked 6/25 to register best bowling figures by an Indian in T20Is.

While not quite as heavy a collapse as some of the others, this was one of the most dramatic.

Chahal is awarded as Man of the Match and Man of the Series!
