One of the keys to England's success was the negation of Kuldeep Yadav, the left-arm wristspinner whose wiles had bamboozled their batsmen to the tune of five wickets at Old Trafford.

In between those two losses to West Indies, India beat England 2-1 in a three-match T20I series at home in January 2017. Death specialist Jasprit Bumrah was out with a finger injury and rookie Washington Sunder hurt himself during a frolic football game while at practice.

Deepak Chahar's first over in worldwide T20 cricket, and the first of the innings, cost 13 runs with Buttler accounting for 12 of them and within four overs England were 43-0. "So building that confidence for yourself and the team is very important". Playing his 500th worldwide game, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (32 not out off 24 balls) then came to the crease and added a quick 32 runs off 24 balls with Kohli.

There is no mystery element to Kuldeep's bowling like that posed by Sunil Narine, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Rashid Khan. England ultimately came out on top after Alex Hales held his nerve in the last over to smash Bhuvaneshwar Kumar for three boundaries off the first three balls and win the second T20 of the series for England.

Despite the fact that Dhoni bid farewell to Test cricket in the year 2014, he carries glorious figures of more than 16000 worldwide runs appearing against his name in all formats of the game. It may have been his approach - a bit defensive compared to his counterpart Yuzvendra Chahal - that may have restricted his appearances only in the short formats of the game. Jason and Jos were brilliant up front, and nearly gave us a licence to allow ourselves to think about 220. For England Ben Stokes is in for Joe Root.

"India never really got away from us, but we struggled to take wickets", added Morgan. "There was a lot more clarity in the shots that we played".

Leaving their previous mistakes behind, the English bowlers came accurate with the line and length as they struck at regular intervals to deny the visitors post a challenging total on batting-friendly wicket. India took 20 runs in the 18th over with Pandya hitting two fours and a six.

Pandya too played a major role with both bat and ball last night. A good wrist spinner is a good wrist spinner against any opposition.

The Chinaman bowler was the second-best performer for India in the T20I series, picking up 5 wickets and conceding just 58 runs in two matches.

Kohli also admitted that losing three wickets in quick succession is a hard task for other batsman to recover, and in the decider match the batsman need to pull up their socks. "In the end if the team wins, even if I give 50 runs and don't take wickets, I am more than happy". Who knows, India may manage to check-mate England thanks to a 'Chinaman'.
