Toss – Toss won by England Elected To ball First.
England has bounced back with a terrific response as Morgan and Co. beat India with some riveting pace and dynamic batting. The Indian top-order crumbled under some lightning quick spells from comeback man Mark Wood and a menacing Archer.
With the top-order in ruins, it was always difficult for India to inspire a comeback but it was nearly on, for a near flawless Virat Kohli was out to lead India’s fightback. Kohli’s blade did not bow to the England bowlers as he racked up a sizzling 77* to lead India to a below-par 156/6.
Opener Jos Buttler smashed an unbeaten half-century to help England defeat India by eight wickets in the third T20I on Tuesday, at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The win has also helped the visitors take a 2-1 lead in the five-match series. In reply to India’s target of 157 runs, England recovered brilliantly from an early wicket loss, to cruise to an easy victory with 10 balls to spare. Buttler slammed 83 off 52 balls, packed with five fours and four sixes, and was well-supported by Jonny Bairstow (40), as England reached 158/2. Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar took a wicket each for India. Earlier, India had posted 156 for six in 20 overs, with captain Virat Kohli cruising to an unbeaten knock of 77 in 46 balls. Despite his fine knock, the other Indian batsmen faltered against England’s bowlers. Pacer Mark Wood took three wickets, and Chris Jordan registered two dismissals. Both sides will face each other once again in the fourth T20I, which will take place on March 18. India will be aiming to level the series, and England will be hoping to seal the series in the fourth T20
