England seek favourable end to tough tour

England are a formidable batting side, and India need all their bowling nous for what is expected to be a high-scoring, series-deciding clash in Bangalore

What a turnaround!


No. of runs for which England lost their last 8 wickets, the second-worst 8-wkt collapse in history of International cricket. NZ had lost 8 for 5 runs v Aus in a Test in 1946.

Hosts back in the game


Wickets lost by England in a span of six deliveries, without getting any run - Morgan, Root and Buttler were the batsmen out between overs 13.3 and 14.2.

England ahead


England's score at the end of tenth over. India made 78runs at the same stage. Both were two-down at that point.

Longest wait


No. of T20Is MS Dhoni has played to score his maiden T20I fifty, easily the most by any batsman. The previous highest was 42 matches by Ireland's Gary Wilson.

After a long wait


Last time Raina scored a fifty in T20Is, before this. This was his first such score in 38 innings.

Three sixes in Powerplays


No. of India batsmen to hit 3 or more sixes in the Powerplays in T20Is, including Raina today. Sehwag hit 4 vs NZ in 2009 and Rohit 3 vs WI in 2016.

Fielding again


No. of times in this series England have won the toss. They have chosen to field all the three times.

India's youngest


No. of players younger than Rishabh Pant to play for India in T20Is, who makes his debut at 19 years, 120 days. Ishant (19y, 152d) was previous youngest.
