India and England locked horns in the third and last T20I of the three-match T20I series. Jos Buttler & co. won the last match by 17 runs to end the series on a positive note after losing it with a score line of 2-0. English skipper Jos Buttler decided to bat first after winning the toss at Nottingham’s Trent Birmingham.

Batting first, the hosts posted a big total of 215 runs for the loss of seven wickets in the allotted 20 overs. England’s top-order batter Dawid Malan played a brilliant knock of 77 runs off just 39 balls with six boundaries and five sixes.

Chasing the mammoth target of 216, Indian batter Suryakumar Yadav played an excellent knock of 117 runs off just 55 balls. He smashed 14 boundaries and six sixes. Even, the cricket fans lauded his inning on Twitter despite India’s defeat in the final fixture of the series.

India lost the match but won the series with a score line of 2-1

Batting first, England lost their three wickets on the score of 84 runs. But it was the time when the 34-year-old Malan took charge and smashed Indian bowlers throughout the entire ground. He played a must-require inning of 77 runs for England alongside Liam Livingstone. The latter also played the inning of 42 runs to take England to a total of 215 runs in 20 overs.

Chasing a massive target, the visitors were looking in trouble when they lost their three wickets only on the score of 31. Then onwards, the Mumbai-based batter Suryakumar Yadav held his nerves and made a very important partnership of 119 runs with Shreyas Iyer for the fourth wicket.

With the fall of Shreyas Iyer, the Indian middle-order collapsed drastically but SKY maintained his calm. He went on to hit an amazing century and score 117 runs before getting succumbed to senior English all-rounder Moeen Ali in the 19th over. Eventually, Suryakumar Yadav’s extraordinary efforts went in vain and India lost the match by 17 runs. However, India had already taken a winning lead in the series. So, Rohit’s men won the series with a score line of 2-1.
