    Test Match Special

    England made it look easy, but this was a hugely impressive victory. India had all the momentum after the boundaries to finish the first innings, but England stayed calm and this side just know how to win.

  3. 'Today is about Eoin'

    Man of the match Jos Buttler: "It was nice to spend time in the middle. I like being not out in the end and getting the side over the line.

    "Some people don't expect me to attack the spinners so I thought I would take it on. Chahal is a fantastic spinner and I've had some battles against him."

    On what he said to Morgan when giving him his 100th T20 international cap: "I tried to get across what a special achievement it is and what he's done for English white-ball cricket.

    "Today is about him and reaching that milestone. Eoin, along with others, has taken our white-ball fortunes to somewhere it's never been before."

    Morgan clearly appreciated what Buttler said to him before the match. So now let's hear from the man of the match himself...

    Hit4six: Can I change my 120 all out prediction? Of course I had every faith that we would win the T20. Never a doubt about it.

  6. 'It nearly brought me to tears'

    England captain Eoin Morgan: "The first half of our bowling was exceptional. When you look at conditions, the carry that we saw throughout the game was a bit of a surprise to us.

    "Jos is a world-class player. We're very lucky to have him. He competes with the best in the world when it comes to opening the batting. There's very little to say to Jos. He's been in incredible form and he's a great leader in our group. He's a huge influence."

    On Buttler's speech when giving Morgan his 100th T20 international cap: "It nearly brought me to tears. He's a great friend of mine; our families are quite close. The words he said to me were from the heart."

  7. 'Our body language wasn't good enough'

    India captain Virat Kohli: "You don't want to play knocks which don't want to help the team in any way. It was difficult to start early on with the new ball.

    "England do have extra pace as well which makes it difficult but they were bowling good areas.

    "We would have preferred to bowl first. Having said that, if you lose the toss you should embrace what's been asked of you. To be honest I thought the England bowlers were brilliant with the new ball, they hardly gave us anything.

    "I don't think our body language was good enough in the second half in the field. You need more energy."

  8. Post update

    Let's hear from Virat Kohl in what was a bitter-sweet day for the India captain.

    He scored 77 from 46 balls but later dropped a catch and saw his side easily lose to England...

    Freddie: People calling for Hales' return, but who would you drop?

    England T20 bowler

    An excellent win for England. They set the tone brilliantly with the powerplay bowling at the start. Wood in particular was excellent. That start enabled them to weather the storm of Virat Kohli later on in the innings as India still posted a below-par total.

    Then it was a really impressive, measured chase from England with Jos Buttler knowing when to go up and down the gears.

  11. Post update

    England seamer Mark Wood, who finished with figures of 3-31: "The two pitches I've played on have had a bit of bounce and I enjoyed those conditions. My role in the team is to try and bang it on a good length and make something happen.

    "Kohli's a fantastic player and very hard to bowl at and he played some great shots in the end. It's good to play against great players and test yourself.

    "We have some fantastic death bowlers - Archer and Jordan - but I can do the role. It's a shame I went for in the last over, but credit to Virat."

    On the importance of the toss: "Both teams like to chase. If we still bat first, I'll back our players, just like India will. We have some fantastic players."

    Test Match Special

    Win toss, win game? Putting any allegiances aside, it would be good for one of the final two matches to show some variety to this formula.

  13. Post update

    England made that chase reasonably easy, thanks largely to Jos Buttler who batted superbly for his unbeaten 83 from 52.
