Debutants Arshdeep Singh (2 for 18) and Yuzvendra Chahal (2 for 32) played well with Hardik and took two wickets each. Despite dominating England, fielding became India’s concern as the team lost at least five catches. During this, Hardik became only the 12th cricketer to take four wickets by half a century in the T20 Internationals. He is only the fifth cricketer among the full members of the ICC to achieve this feat. Before him, Dwayne Bravo from the Caribbean, Shane Watson from Australia, Samiullah Shinwari from Afghanistan and Mohammad Hafeez from Pakistan have done this feat. In the pursuit of the goal, England started very badly. The team lost the wicket of captain Jos Buttler (0) in the very first over, which was thrown by Bhuvneshwar Kumar. David Malan hit the first four of innings at Bhuvneshwar in the third over and then hit fast bowler Arshdeep in two consecutive fours. Malan hit a boundary next to Hardik’s first ball, but the next ball was played on wickets. He scored 21 runs in 14 balls with four fours. In the same over by Hardik, Liam Livingstone (00) also tried to play a constructive stroke, giving a simple catch to wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik as England’s score was 29 for three. England’s team could only manage 32 runs for three wickets in the powerplay. Opener Jason Roy also played Hardik’s delivery into the hands of Harshal Patel after scoring four runs in 16 balls. Moeen finished the half-century of the team race in the eighth over with fours and then a race at Harshal. Brooke, however, was lucky in the same over when Karthik dropped his catch.

Moeen was also lucky at 18 when Suryakumar failed to grab his cap. Moeen hit fours and sixes from Axar’s successive deliveries, but Chahal smashed England’s chances of victory by rejecting him and Brooke in the next over. After Brook was captured by Suryakumar, Chahal Moeen was stabbed by Karthik. Moeen hit four fours and two sixes in his 20-ball shot, while Brook faced 23 balls and hit two fours and a six. At Hardik’s delivery, Karthik dropped Jordan’s catch, but caught the catch by Sam Curran (04) and gave England the seventh blow. Chahal gave Jordan a new life on his ball while Hooda dropped the catch by Tymal Mills in the same over. England needed 84 runs to win in the last five overs and the team could not even reach that goal. Indian captain Rohit Sharma, who was out of the fifth Test against England due to being found Kovid-19 positive, won the draw and decided to strike.

Rohit hit two consecutive fours in Reece Topley’s next over (1 for 34) after hitting a boundary in the first over from Sam Curran. The Indian captain also welcomed Moeen Ali with two consecutive fours, but this off-spinner was caught by wicketkeeper Jos Buttler on the next ball. Rohit scored 24 runs in 14 balls with five fours. Deepak Hooda (33) opened the account with two consecutive sixes from Moin, but opener Ishan Kishan (08) played the off-spinner in the air and caught Matt Parkinson on a short fine leg. Hooda also hit three boundaries in the next over by Topley as India posted 66 for two in power play. Suryakumar opened the scoring with a four on Moin and then took the ball from Tymal Mills (1 wicket for 35 runs) to the crowd. He also hit two fours on leg spinner Matt Parkinson (1 for 44). Hooda, however, returned to the pavilion by capturing Mills from Jordan’s delivery. He hit three fours and two sixes in his innings with 17 balls.

Hardik took India’s score past 100 runs in the 10th over with two fours on Parkinson’s. Suryakumar together with Hardik kept the running pace going. He hit his second six at Mills. Suryakumar was caught by wicketkeeper Butler on the bouncing ball from Jordan. He hit four fours and two sixes in his innings with 19 balls. Suryakumar became Jordan’s 82nd victim in T20 International cricket, making him England’s most successful bowler in the format. Hardik was lucky at 37 when Buttler missed the opportunity to stop him from a Parkinson’s delivery. Parkinson gave India the fifth blow by getting Axar Patel captured by Roy. Hardik completed his half-century on just 30 balls with a six and then a run on Parkinson. After this, however, Hardik was caught by Harry Brook on Topley’s ball. The Indian team could only add 20 runs in the last three overs.
