Sharma became only the second Indian to pass 2,000 runs in this format as India chased down their target of 199 with eight balls and seven wickets to spare.

Pandya took 4-38, his best figures in T20 cricket and MS Dhoni became the first player to take five catches in international T20 and ran out Chris Jordan on the last ball of England´s innings for good measure.

England batted first and threatened to post a huge score before Pandya and Doni pinned them back and the hosts finished on 198-9 after their 20 overs.
