India vs England 3rd T20: Legspinner Yuzvendra Chahal does it for India with 6 wickets

India scored a resounding victory over England on Wednesday in the Bangalore T20 completing a hat-trick of series victories for Virat Kohli's Indian cricket over the visitors in all formats, with this 2-1 Twenty20 international series win following the same scoreline in the ODI leg and a 4-0 sweep in the Tests late last year.

Batting first, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh took India to 202/6, but the star of the evening turned out to be 27-year-old legspinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who took 6/25 as England lost their last eight wickets for eight runs.

Interestingly, this win is only the fifth in a bilateral T20I series for an Indian team. Overall, India have contested 13 such T20I series dating back to 2009, of which they had won four before the deciding third match with England at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. And of these, three have come in the last 12 months.

India first won a bilateral T20I series in Zimbabwe in 2010, when a weakened squad led by Raina beat the hosts 2-0. The next series win was in January 2016, a landmark 3-0 sweep of Australia in Australia under Dhoni. Soon after, Sri Lanka visited and were beaten 2-1. Last summer, Dhoni led a revamped team to Zimbabwe where the result was a 2-1 victory.

After losing the opening match in Kanpur, Kohli's team has now rebounded with victories in Nagpur and Bangalore.
