Yuzvendra Chahal, the young legspinner bowled a dream spell for the Indian team and bamboozled the English batsmen. His magical figures of 6/25 helped India bowl England out for a measly127 in 16.3 overs. He teamed well with the senior spinner Amit Mishra to keep constant pressure on England.
The England batsmen were highly disappointing and apart from Jason Roy, Eoin Morgan and Joe Root, no one offered any resistance to the Indian bowlers.
Earlier, the old warhorses, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh played marvelous innings and tore apart the English bowlers.
Raina, the comeback man did the early damage and Yuvraj and Dhoni carried on with his good work. In the process, Dhoni also hit his maiden T20 half century.
England had won the toss in the third T20 at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru and put India in to bat.
