The T-20 series was well and truly decided at Bangalore and India emerged victorious in the third series against England after the test and one day wins. The series was sealed in the second game for England but a bat and pad decision put paid their hopes of achieving an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the three match series. Senior played a stellar role as both Suresh Raina and Mahendra Singh Dhoni scored runs which enabled Team India to reach 200 plus total. England received a jolt in the second match and it never recovered. From 119/2 the England collapsed to 127 due to the clever bowling of Chahal and Bumrah and lost the series in the end without semblance of fight. It is time to include Chahal in one day cricket and slowly push him to test match cricket after his show in this final game. Morgan side got disappointed as the shockwave in the second match could not help them to go all out and make sure of winning the series. Man of the match Chahal changed the game and turned the tide in India’s favour.
