Stats: Chahal, batsmen hand massive win for India in the series decider

By Sampath -

It was a perfect night for an Indian fan to be present at the Bangalore’s M Chinnaswamy stadium as the Indians outclassed England in the series decider by taking the game by 75 run margin and the T20I series with a 2-1 lead. After a brilliant batting display from Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni, helped by a cameo from Yuvraj Singh, India posted 202/6 being put to bat for the 3rd time in a row in the series.

England seemed to be going well in the chase at 119/2 in the 14th over only before Yuzvendra Chahal ensured an England collapse in his two overs span backed up very well by Bumrah as the visitors found themselves bowled out for 127 in no time.

Prior to this game, no Indian managed to take a 5-wicket haul in T20Is but Yuzvendra Chahal recorded figures of 6/25 in his four overs in this game. This was only the 3rd instance of a bowler taking 6-wicket haul in T20I cricket with previous two coming from Ajantha Mendis.

England’s collapse from 119/2 to 127/10 turned out to be the worst ever 8-wicket collapse in T20I cricket. This collapse is also the 2nd worst 8-wicket collapse in International cricket as New Zealand lost 8 wickets for 5 runs in a Test match against Australia in 1946.
