India beat England by 8 runs
Right then! The series is even stevens with the decider to play for. India's 7-match series wins is on the line here. While England would hope to win the T20I series and take the momentum in the ODI series. Who will lay his hand on the trophy? Kohli or Morgan. To find out join for the 5th T20I on 20th March 2021. The action begins at 1900 local (1330 GMT). We hope to have your company for the game. Till then cheers and take care.
Suryakumar Yadav is named the Man of the Match. He says that he is happy with how things went as his dream of playing for India came true. He mentions that he tries to keep things simple and does not complicate them much. He mentions that the team management cheers him by saying just play the way he has played in Indian T20 League and domestic circuit. He ends by saying that he enjoyed his day out today.
Indian skipper, Virat Kohli says that against a top side one expects the game to be tough. Tells that the dew factor was a massive factor. Shares they were looking at 180-plus and credits Suryakumar Yadav for his innings. Tells they wanted to give chances to these guys so that they can get more confidence as this is the last T20I they play before the World Cup. On a few calls, Kohli says something similar happened in the Test series and tells that the soft signal will be difficult to call from square leg. Kohli feels the situation as such is not ideal in a high-pressure game. On his fitness, Kohli says that he ran for the ball and threw it while diving and tells he aggravated his upper quad and tells he did not want to injure himself. On changes to the side, Kohli says he is very happy and once again credits Surya for his innings as it is not easy to play against bowlers of high quality. Tells that he put them in a good position and credits the youngsters for grabbing the opportunity. Says he is happier for Hardik bowling his 4 overs and how he bowled. Kohli says Hardik was potent with the new ball in the practice session and tells if he bowls in rhythm he can take wickets. Tells Hardik's role in the defence was very crucial.
England skipper, Eoin Morgan says that it has been the closest game they have played in the series. Credit India for the win as he mentions that they played well. He mentions that they try to learn along with this series as they prepare for the World Cup. He mentions that the wickets they lost in quick succession hurt them a lot and he also mentions that there was a lot of dew. He mentions that it is difficult to chase when the starting run rate is 9 runs in a T20I. Praises that Bairstow and Stokes played a good hand. He ends by saying that they play for winning and to win away from home is the one thing that they look for.
Shardul says that the last over is never easy especially with dew coming in. Tels they were swinging hard and it was important to bowl dot balls. Thakur says that the new ball in the last over worked in England's favour. Shardul says the dew was coming in and if they had bowled slower one in the stumps it would have travelled. Shardul tells the ball was drier and hence he bowled the knuckle ball in the final over. Shardul says he is enjoying a lot and tells he bowls a lot of overs in the death and he is getting used to it. Thakur tells Hardik had some plans but Rohit told him to bowl according to how he wanted.
Earlier on the back of Suryakumar Yadav's maiden T20I fifty and contributions from Pant and a quickfire 37 of 18 balls from Iyer saw India post a healthy total on board. It also was the first 180 plus score in this series. For England, It was Jofra Archer's 4 wickets and a wicket each from Wood, Stokes, Curran and Rashid capped off the day with the ball as Jordan ended with a none for 41 in his 4. In the end, The total proved too much for England to chase as they went down fighting hard. Let's hear it from the man who defended 23 in his last over to hand India a win. Shardul Thakur is down for a quick chat.
A brilliant bowling display from India. They cameback strongly after being criticized in their last game for poor bowling. They bowled superbly with the dew playing its part. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar started with a maiden and then what unfolded was a strong bowling display from the Indian bowlers. Pandya, Thakur and Chahar supported him well. The only disappointment was Washington Sundar who leaked 52 runs in his 4 overs. And a brilliant last over from Shardul Thakur sees India win the game. Though a close one but India won't mind. Overall a good display of slower bowling and good fielding see India keep the series alive.
Chasing a huge total in excess of 180 runs need a  strong solid opening partnership. which England failed to get as they lost Buttler early. Then they lost Malan and Roy in quick succession. Before, Stokes and Bairstow joined hands to take England back on track with a 65-run association. But three quick wickets in the end, derailed their hopes as they went down fighting despite some effort from their bowlers.
A brilliant competitive cricket from England and India. In the end, the team that played well won and it is India who have won the game to square off the series 2-2 with the decider to play now. But a sheer nail-biter of a game as England kept the home team on their toes till the last ball of the game. First time a team chasing has lost a game in this series.

OUT! CAUGHT! Shardul redeems himself. Jordan cannot get the distance like Archer did and India have sealed this game as long as the next ball is a legal ball. Length ball wide outside off. It is the knuckle ball, Jordan hits it over mid off but does not get the distance and hits it straight to Hardik in the deep. He makes no mistake.

Just a single. Length ball outside off, Archer looks to smack it but it hits the lower half of his bat. The splice is flying as Archer's bat is broken. They take a run.

Hardik Pandya To Sam Curran OUT!
OUT! BOWLED! Brilliant from Hardik Pandya. Just 6 off the over and he has finished with his second wicket. He finishes with 2/16 from his 4 overs. Absolutely phenomenal from Kung-Fu Pandya.  Once again he takes the pace off the ball and rolls his fingers on this one. It is on middle, Sam Curran goes for the big slog to the on side. He gets a bottom edge, and the ball rolls behind to hit the middle pole. Curran has no idea where the ball is and till the time he realises the zing bails are on the turf.

Hardik Pandya To Dawid Malan
DROPPED! Excellent effort from Shardul, he almost got it but not to be! Another slower short ball from Hardik. It is on middle, Malan looks to use the pace and place it over short third man. There is no pace on offer though. The ball is too close to him as well. He is too committed to the shot to retract. He goes for it. It seems to be going away from Shardul at short third man. He back peddles and jumps. He tries to take it with one hand. The ball hits his right palm and pops out. Single taken.

He looks to hit it over mid off but gets an outside edge which sees the ball go over short third man and to the fence for a boundary.

NOT OUT! Roy is safely in! Back of a length and around off, Roy punches this one to the mid off region and they scamper through for the single. The fielder scores a direct hit at the bowler's end. The ball deflects off the stumps and they take another one.

Shardul Thakur To Jason Roy
INSIDE EDGE AND FOUR! Roy brings up 1000 runs in T20Is with some fortune. Length ball on middle, Roy comes down the track and looks to flat-bat it straight. The ball keeps a bit low and takes the inside edge of Jason's willow and goes fine down the leg side and to the fence.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Jos Buttler OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! India get the big wicket of Jos Buttler inside the Powerplay. This has been an expensive over so far but it won't matter now as they have got rid of the Man of the Match from the last game, Jos Buttler. Leg cutter from Bhuvi. This time it is full on middle and leg. Buttler looks to slam his flick over on the leg side. He mistimes it and it goes high in the air. KL Rahul at mid off comes forward and settles under the skier.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Jos Buttler
Miscued but in the gap! Slower ball which is bowled into the surface. Buttler pulls it in front of square on the leg side. He mistimes it but it is in the gap so gets a couple.
