Stats: England lose 8 wickets for 8 runs

first_imgLeg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal’s maiden six-wicket haul turned things around for India as the hosts beat England by 75 runs in the third and final Twenty20 International to clinch the series 2-1 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Wednesday.Chasing a mammoth 203, England were on track till the 13th over scoring 119/2, before Chahal’s magical spell (6/25) put the visitors on the back foot as they surrendered meekly to lose their last eight wickets for just eight runs and end on 127.England started well with opener Jason Roy (32) and Joe Root (42) putting on 47 runs for the second wicket before the latter combined with skipper Eoin Morgan (40) and added 64 runs for the third wicket to put them in a commanding position. (Yuzvendra Chahal second bowler after Ajantha Mendis to take six-wicket haul in T20 Internationals)But thereafter it was Chahal all the way, who triggered a collapse by sending back Morgan and Root off consecutive deliveries before pacer Jasprit Bumrah (3/14) added to their woes by striking in the very next over to dismiss wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler for a duck.England’s batsmen were in such a hurry that it hardly took Chahal another over to take three more wickets of Ben Stokes (6), Moeen Ali (2) and Chris Jordan (0) and dash any hopes of a recovery.Tottering at 127/9, Bumrah dismissed tail-ender Tymal Mills (0) to seal the deal in India’s favour.India’s biggest wins in Twenty20 InternationalsMARGIN OPPONENTVENUE YEAR90 runsEnglandColombo RPS201275 runsEnglandBangalore201773 runsAustraliaMirpur201469 runsSri LankaRanchi201654 runsZimbabweHarare2015From 119/2 to 127 all out – England lost their last 8 wickets for only 8 runs in 19 balls.
