Get involved

That's all folks

That is all from us. 

Thanks for joining us for this match, this series, this tour. It didn't end well if you are an England fan. But then it wasn't much fun throughout, either! 

We won't be away for long - roughly a month, in fact. England are in the West Indies for a one-day tour at the start of March. We'll see you then.

Over in a flash

'Not an indication of how we've played on the tour'

England head coach Trevor Bayliss, speaking to Sky Sports: "The way we finished tonight is not an indication of the way we have played on this tour. But we have to give credit... India have played better than us on this tour.

"We're not world-class players of spin yet and it is difficult to knock the ball over the fence. I'd like to see our guys hit down the wicket rather than sweep sometimes.

"A lot of times the guys have been out playing across the line but that's something we can learn from and make sure we're better at next time we play here."

'Chahal has zeal and confidence'

More from Virat Kohli: "The over off Jordan [which went for 24] was a game-changer for us. We were thinking 175 but that pushed us on. 

"Mishra started it [England's collapse] but Chahal knew the wicket better. Credit to him for those five wickets in two overs. I have a lot of faith in him. He plays with confidence and is not frightened to get hit. he needs to retain his originality and character. He has so much zeal and confidence.

"[Dhoni] is always trying get the best balance for the team. He is a champion player and a big match-winner. He stepped up today again.

"It is a memorable series win for us. We won a Test series in England. We played a good brand of cricket there. To consolidate at home takes character. It has been a brilliant couple of months. We know what we need to do going forward."

'I am taking as much advice as possible'

India captain Virat Kohli: "This was an occasion that demanded us to be at our best. Everyone was looking forward to this game. We lost all three tosses but won the series. We have shown character to win all three series.

"It is not a bad thing when you have Dhoni behind the stumps. I am new to limited overs captaincy so I am taking as much advice as possible. It is a matter of me making the decision."

'We won't dwell too much'

England captain Eoin Morgan: “We take a lot of things from this series. The biggest thing is the bowling. The bowling has been a significant improvement and that is encouraging. In the batting department we chased down 150 in the first game. 

"We won't dwell too much but we are disappointed.”

'It really hurt us'

England captain Eoin Morgan: “We made a fatal error in losing two ‘in’ batsmen when we were going so well. It really hurt us. You have to give credit where credit is due, congratulations to the Indian team. 

“With the benefit of hindsight, we could have done with Joe or I to see out the innings. It's a beautiful wicket to bat on with a small boundary we would have taken conceding 190/200 at the beginning at the game."

'It was a catastrophe'

Isa Guha

Ex-England seamer on BBC Test Match Special

I don't think England bowled badly. I think it's the sort of pitch you can get pumped for four and six, but I think it was more the Indian batsmen who adapted to the pitch. 

England kept getting out at the wrong times. A nice partnership from Root and Morgan but it was a catastrophe after that.

Patrick Kitur: Incredible collapse by England. Beyond top order there's no one to count on. #Chahal class. 

Gary Wallis: Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean, that really got out of hand fast. India turned it up a notch... 

England fans are in a glass case of emotion!

India recognised it was two-paced so gave themselves a couple of balls to get in, and they were able to capitalise on their wickets in hand and big runs at the end of the innings.

And here are those decisive 19 balls in all there... ahem... glory:

England's tour record

England in this tour of India (not including tour matches): DLLLLLLWWLL.

Ouch.

It was hide behind your sofa stuff for England fans.

'200 is a par score'

Yuvraj Singh, who hit 27 off 10 balls said: "The surface is a batting paradise. It is important to first asses the wicket, but we put on a good total.

"I think 200 in Banglore is a par score, but the way the wicket played it was a good score."

That completes victory in all formats for India. The Test Series, the ODI series and now the T20 series.

India win by 75 runs and take the series 2-1

We've seen plenty of England collapses in our time but that is up there. In the 14th over, England were 119-2 and still in with a shout. Midway through the 16th they are all out and their miserable tour has its fitting bookend.

WICKET

Mills c Kohli b Bumrah 0 (Eng 127 all out)

Game over. The capitulation is complete. Mills edges Bumrah straight to Kohli at slip. It is travelling but the Indian skipper is not letting it out of his grasp.

England have lost eight wickets for eight runs in 19 balls. I repeat, eight wickets for eight runs in 19 balls.

India win by 75 runs and take the series 2-1.

It will be a crushing defeat.

Charles Dagnall

BBC Test Match Special

It has been a crazy couple of overs and it all started with Morgan, but he had to try and go and attack them.

WICKET

Plunkett b Bumrah 0 (127-9)

We can't keep up! I don't think the word 'collapse' does this any justice. Plunkett advances down the wicket, misses it and the ball clatters the stumps. 

Isa Guha

Ex-England seamer on BBC Test Match Special

What a spell!

There is going to be no arguments about who wins man of the match tonight.

WICKET

Jordan st Dhoni b Chahal 0 (Eng 127-8)

Chahal has six! He is destroying England. Chris Jordan dances down and misses, giving Dhoni a straightforward task to stump and dismiss him. Delirium in the stands. This is a major collapse. England's tour is ending in embarrassment.

WICKET

Stokes c Raina b Chahal 6 (Eng 127-6)

It looks like Stokes gets hold of one... but no ... what a catch that is from Suresh Raina on the boundary! He gets two hands to it but looks like he is about to topple over. He steadies himself and manages to keep his balance, ending up on one leg and crouching over the boundary rope.

The two-paced nature of the pitch makes it hard for batsmen to get going in the first couple of balls.

WICKET

Moeen c Kohli b Chahal 2 (Eng 123-6)

England are crumbling. Moeen goes high as opposed to long off Chahal. Kohli waves everyone else away, moves in from long off and claims the catch. Four wickets for Chahal. He has ripped the heart out of the tourists.

Eng 123-5

Eng need 203 runs to win

Moeen Ali joins Stokes at the wicket. Four consecutive singles to end the over. England need fours and sixes ... they need something special right now. 

WICKET

Buttler c Kohli b Bumrah 0 (Eng 119-5)

Game over? Probably. Bumrah digs one in short and it is quickly on to Buttler, who tries to pull but succeeds only in skewing the ball up for Kohli to catch at mid-off. What a little period this has been for the home side. They have swung this game completely in their favour.

Eng 119-4

Eng need 203 runs to win

So two new batsmen at the crease - Stokes and Buttler. They don't really have any time to get their eye in, but do these two need time? 

Two dot balls from Chahal ends the over. 84 needed from 36 balls - it's a tough ask. 

Isa Guha

Ex-England seamer on BBC Test Match Special

He didn't get any bat on it and Yuzvendra Chahal is delighted with that one. He has got his side back in the game and now it's two new batsmen at the crease.

WICKET

Root lbw Chahal 42 (Eng 119-4)

It is all going wrong for England now. Chahal makes it two in two with a ball that kicks on after Root goes back and traps the batsman bang in front. He went 13 balls without a boundary before succumbing. 

On the plus side, England now have their biggest hitters at the crease.

You could sense the pressure mounting on Eoin Morgan as the man who had to stand up, but that is a big blow for England because he was looking good out there in the middle.

WICKET

Morgan c Pant b Chahal 40 (Eng 119-2)

The partnership is ended and it's the England captain who is making his way back to the dressing room. He top edges a slog-sweep and new boy Pant takes the catch at mid-wicket.

England will be pleased that Mishra is finished for the match. They had some leeway in that over because of the way they took apart Raina.

Dropped catch

Eng 117-2

Interesting outfit in the crowd - a Flash bodysuit with a native American headdress and Elton John glasses. Presumably, he couldn't decide which fancy dress to go with so just went for all of them. His attire says party, but his face tells a different story. Root looks like he's committed suicide with a miscued outside edge but two fielders converge at backward point and Yuvraj spills it.

It is still a brilliant over from Mishra, though. He mixes it up and concedes just three.

sonsofpunjab: Raina could have just handed the game to England with that poor over, what was Kohli thinking??? 

Isa Guha

This is brilliant from Eoin Morgan. Virat Kohli tried to gamble and give himself extra options at the backend of the innings but Morgan has targeted Raina.

Eng 114-2

Eng need 203 to win

Big over from England ... big over for Morgan! 

The top scorer from India's innings, Suresh Raina, turns his hand to the ball and England, needing runs, target the off-spinner.

Three maximums from Morgan punish some simple and short bowling from Raina. 

This one could go down to the wire.

It's interesting that Virat Kohli is fielding at long-on. He clearly sees that as a key fielding position, even if it means he can't be closer to the action directing his other fielders.

Eng 92-2

Eng need 203 to win

India win the first over after the break thanks to some superb fielding at long on and off. The diving men in the deep prevent at least one boundary off Mishra. Just six off the over. The run-rate is now up and over 12.
