Jason Roy (0) went to the second member of the England run, a bowling net by Bhuvneswhar Kumar (2-15), who later returned to claim Buttler’s main wicket in 13th over the cost that’s just three runs and turned the game in India’s favor.

Buttler’s elimination was the first of seven wikis that fell for 44 runs while England were on their way to a series loss.

Ben Stokes (1-26) taking the important issue to England, deceiving Rohit for distance with a cutter who was pounding into his stocks. But any hopes that the wicket would stop the Indian innings were soon dashed when Suryakumar – fresh from shooting fifty in his T20I virgin engines – exploded a six-back from Rashid in the next over and then took Jordan for three consecutive goals in the 12th.

Jordan would take his revenge with a rusty boundary grip to see Suryakumar’s back shortly afterwards, blasting around a deep midwicket fence to take an effortless one-handed grip before sending him back to the watch (and (laughs with surprise) Jason Roy as Jordan ‘s move took him over the rope.

Kohli, happy to play the second violin up to this point – having given just 31 deliveries before the end of the 14th over – then put his foot on the thrush with Pandya at the back end of the innings. India.
