India thrashed England by 7 wickets in the third T20I to win the series 2-1. Put in to bat first, England, led by Jason Roy’s blistering 67-run knock, posted 198 for 9. For India, Hardik Pandya starred with the ball, picking up 4 for 38. Pandya’s spell helped India pull things back and restrict England below 200.

In reply, India chased down the total with 8 balls remaining. Rohit Sharma led the chase with an unbeaten ton. There were also useful contributions from Virat Kohli (43) and Pandya (33 off 14).

Here we take a look at all the major stats from the third game:

1. This was the sixth successive series win for India in the T20Is. This is the second longest successful run for a side after the ongoing sequence by Pakistan who on Sunday beat Australia to extend their run to nine series wins. India’s last series loss in this format came almost a year ago when they lost the one-off T20I against West Indies.

2. India extended their perfect result in a three-T20I series. This was the India’s eighth appearance in a three-match T20I series and they have ended on the winning side in all those instances. Out of those eight series, the series was decided in the final game on 6 occasions and India won all the deciders.

3. The target of 199 is the highest chased down by any side against England in T20Is. The previous record was 183 by West Indies in the 2016 edition of World T20.

4. Rohit Sharma became the first India and second overall after New Zealand’s Colin Munro to score three hundreds in T20Is. His unbeaten 100 was also his highest score batting second in T20 International, surpassing the unbeaten 79 against Australia in 2010.

5. The century was Rohit’s fifth in T20s which is most by any Indian. He surpassed Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina, who have four apiece.

6. Rohit became the second Indian after Virat Kohli to score 2,000 runs in T20Is.

7. MS Dhoni became the second player to take 50 catches in T20 Internationals after AB de Villiers’s 65 catches. However, he is the first wicketkeeper to do so.

8. Dhoni took five catches during the innings which is most by a wicketkeeper in T20Is.  He equalled Mohammad Shahzad’s five dismissals as wicketkeeper (three catches & two stumping). The Afghanistan star had achieved the feat in a match against Oman in Abu Dhabi in 2015.

9. Jason Roy hit 7 sixes during his 67-run knock which is the joint most by any England player in a T20I.Eoin Morgan (twice) and Ravi Bopara have also hit seven sixes each.

10. Pandya became the first Indian player and seventh player overall to score 30-plus runs and take four or more wickets in a T20I. This was also the first time he picked up four wickets in a T20I.
