India beat England by 7 wickets at Narendra Modi stadium (Motera) on march 14 by smashing an over boundary with 13 balls in hand.

From the very beginning of the match India starting dominating when the English opener Jos Buttler lefts the crease at 0.3 overs off Bhuvi. Though Durbian boy Jason Roy tried to score good but later on caught by Bhuvi. Washington invited the shot with a big boundary in store and hoped for a mistime on this not so batsman friendly surface. Bhuvi took a really good diving grab at deep square leg. Not easy to judge there high ones in big grounds and he had great control over the catch.

Morgan brings another hope by smashing a boundary off Sundar in the 11.4 overs. Flighted delivery spinning away outside off stump, Morgan leans forward and plays a lovely inside-out drive over cover. Great bottom hand work on display. Then he smashed a couple of boundaries in two consecutive balls off Shardul Thakur.

England lost their hope when Thakur picked up Morgan with a classic dismissal in the 17.1 overs. A wider good length ball with pace off, further increases the difficulty to control it if the batsman has to reach out, tries to whip-drive through cover but the ball never reaches-eventually gets a top-edge without any bite that just has height and no power. Soft like a marshmallow, that dismissal, as pant settles under it.

The innings ended with a length ball when Curran tons straight down the ground for Four.

The visitors ended the innings at 164 for 6.

India needs 165 runs to win.

Curran brings another hope in the second innings when KL Rahul was caught by Buttler. As he pokes at an away-angler, a very tentative poke to one angling away from a length, gets a faint outside edge that comfortably carries to Buttler behind the stumps.

Kishan storm started in the second over when he smashed a boundary off Jofra Archer. He scored a half-century in his debut innings in just thirty two balls and helped India to win the match.

On the other hand Indian captain King Kohli scored a magnificent half century and completed his 26th 50 in T20 internationals and became the first batsman to score 3000 T20 Runs. He also ended the match with an over boundary with 13 balls in hand.
