That's it from all of us here. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Good bye and take care.

Eoin Morgan has been named the Man of the Match for his brilliant match-winning innings of 49 off 26 balls. Yuvraj Singh has been named the Man of the Series for his spectacular all-round efforts in the series.

Buttler played a classic cameo of 15 off 7 balls and provided with big hits when required. This is the highest successful run chase ever in the T20Is for England. It was end to end stuff and England turned up the better team in the end. The T20I series has ended at 1-1.

Morgan took over the the reins after the departure of Wright and Hales and added 26 crucial runs with Patel. He is termed as the most dangerous and clinical finisher in limited overs cricket and he just showed that it indeed was true as he kept his cool and helped England chase down 44 off last 4 overs.

England got off to a splendid start as the openers, Lumb and Hales added 80 from 8.2 overs. It was the pie-chucker, Yuvraj Singh, who again got India back into the match with three wickets.

The players have made their way out to the middle. Ajinkya Rahane and Gautam Gambhir are the two batsmen at the crease. Tim Bresnan will start off proceedings for England.

India - Gautam Gambhir, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni(Wk/C), Ravichandran Ashwin, Parvinder Awana, Piyush Chawla, Ashok Dinda.

England - Michael Lumb, Alex Hales, Luke Wright, Eoin Morgan(C), Joe Root, Samit Patel, Jos Buttler(Wk), Tim Bresnan, James Tredwell, Stuart Meaker, Jade Dernbach.

Toss - England have won the toss and elected to field. One change for them as Joe Root makes his T20I debut replacing Danny Briggs in the team. One change for India too as Rohit Sharma replaces Ravindra Jadeja in the starting eleven.

Pitch - The track looks pretty good for batting. There is a bit of grass but it won't matter much. The dew factor might play an important role.

The Indians would be looking to seal the series and gain the much needed confidence before the Pakistan series. A cracker of a contest is definitely on cards.

The Test series loss did hurt India a lot but they made sure they took the T20I series as a fresh start and hit back hard in the first game with a thumping five-wicket victory. This is the last match of the series and England would be looking to end up with a victory which will mean a pretty cheerful Christmas for the visitors.
