Birmingham:

England beat India by three runs to win the lone Twenty20 international at Edgbaston on Sunday. (Updates)

India, chasing 181 to win, finished on 177 for five.

They needed 17 off the last over and that became five -- effectively six -- off the final ball, or a four to send the match into a 'super-over.'

But India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who finished on 27 not out, was unable to hit the required boundary off paceman Chris Woakes.

Earlier, England captain Eoin Morgan made 71 off just 31 balls, including three fours and seven sixes in a total of 180 for seven after the former Ireland international won the toss.
