Nottingham. England recorded a consolation victory by beating India by 17 runs in the third and final T20 International on Sunday after David Malan’s 39-ball 77 came under close bowling. India won the first two matches and won the series by three matches 2-1. When England chose to strike after winning the throw, England got a huge score of 215 for seven, with Malan (six fours, five sixes) and Livingstone (42 not out of 29 balls) putting up a stand of 84 runs for the fourth wicket . In pursuit of the goal, the Indian team had lost the first three wickets in the powerplay, but Suryakumar Yadav (117) and Shreyas Iyer (28 runs) played a 62-ball 119 partnership to the fourth wicket. But despite Suryakumar’s 55 balls with 14 fours and six sixes, the team could only manage 198 for nine in 20 overs. Reece Topley was the most successful bowler for England and took three wickets for 22 runs in four overs. Aside from him, David Willey took two and Chris Jordan took two wickets in the final over. India did not start well and the team lost wickets by wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant (01), Virat Kohli (11) and captain Rohit Sharma (11) in the powerplay. The team’s score in six overs was 34 runs for three wickets. Topley got Pant caught by the wicketkeeper in the second over. Then Kohli came to the fold. Kohli struck a lucrative six from the next ball after hitting Willie for an excellent boundary at the aisle in the third over. But in an attempt to lift the next ball over cover, he was repulsed by giving a simple catch. Suryakumar then hit Gleason in the first four of his innings.

In the fifth over, Rohit Sharma hit two fours on Topley but could not time the shot on the last slow ball and India lost the third wicket. Thereafter, Suryakumar and Iyer played responsibly to help the team recover from the initial setbacks. Together, these two teams scored 82 for three wickets in 10 overs. With the partnership of the century between the two, the team made 150 runs for three wickets in 15 overs. The team needed 66 runs in 30 balls to clear the series. But in the 16th and in his last over, Topley ended the partnership by finishing the inning of Iyer (26 balls, two sixes). Dinesh Karthik now came to support Suryakumar. Suryakumar completed his century in the 17th over with 12 fours and five sixes in 48 balls by beating Willie for a four. This made him the sixth Native American to score a century in T20 International cricket. Karthik was appealed leg before a ball later and Buttler took a review in which he was rejected. After Ravindra Jadeja came on, he hit an excellent six over the head of bowler Gleason on the third ball. But got out of the leg before the next ball, even though the Indian cricketer made the pass, but he was found out on this yorker ball. Suryakumar fell victim to Moeen Ali in the 19th over. Then the hope ran out. In the final over, Jordan took wickets by Harshal Patel and Ravi Bishnoi. The Indian team, which has already won the series, rested its main bowler Jasprit Bumrah, shapely Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Yuzvendra Chahal, in addition to star all-rounder Hardik Pandya in this match. With this, England scored many races against India’s second-class bowling attack. Captain Jos Buttler (18 of nine balls) and Jason Roy (27 of 26 balls) helped England reach 52 for one in the powerplay. Malan and Livingstone then took the team to a giant scoring.

England’s strong batting line-up had a disappointing first two games, but they washed away the Indian second – rate attack. Ravi Bishnoi took two wickets for 30 runs in four overs, whose performance was excellent among the bowlers. Avesh Khan had only submitted six runs in his first two overs with a wicket, but then went on to submit a lot of runs in the next two overs. He took a wicket for 43 runs in four overs. In the second over, Umran Malik was welcomed by Captain Butler with a four on the cover point. He sent the fifth ball to a six on the Komid wicket and then hit a four by extra coverage. 17 races were added in this over. Jason Roy also hit a six on Ravi Bishnoi in the next over. Avesh Khan, who opened the bowling, got the decisive wicket of Butler (18 runs) in his very second over, his slow delivery outside the off-stump moved the stumps up by the England captain. In the sixth over, Harshal Patel missed the catch of Malan on his own ball and then the English player did not even open the account. After the powerplay, Roy (27 runs) reached the pavilion by catching wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant after touching the bat on Umran Malik’s very first ball. Phil Salt now came to support Malan, but after playing six balls he was bowled by Harshal Patel. England had scored 86 runs for three wickets in 10 overs and were heading for a good score. Malan’s five sixes included a square leg sweep from Ravindra Jadeja and a full throw from Avesh Khan, a cow corner was spectacular. Livingstone, along with Harry Brooke (19 runs) and Chris Jordan (11 runs in three balls) took England to the 200-run mark. Livingstone came to life when Virat Kohli lost his catch in the deep. England scored 129 runs in the last 10 overs. Umran Malik was the top scorer, using 56 runs in four overs and taking a wicket.
