With the sensational win, Virat Kohli and co swept the 3-match T20I series by 2-1.

India celebrate the series win after the 3rd IT20 Series cricket match between England and India, at the Brightside Ground, in Bristol, England, Sunday July 8, 2018.

Dhoni, who took became the first player to take five catches in a T20 global, removed his glove before the final ball of the innings, making it easier for him to run out Jordan as he tried to pinch a bye. India began well with openers Rohit Sharma, and Shikhar Dhawan struck some exceptional shots.

England opener Jason Roy bludgeoned 14 runs off Umesh Yadav's first over, only to go to the first ball of his second, while Jos Buttler and Root were soon gone too.

The two sides came into the decider with one win apiece under the belts and served up another enthralling contest between bat and ball to delight a packed house at Bristol. India's last series defeat with more one T20I game also came against the reigning T20I champions, in Florida in 2016.

However, Pandya reaped the rewards of it in a game-changing second spell where he picked all of his wickets for just 16 runs. Rohit duly reached his hundred, and Pandya provided the exclamation mark with a six off the fourth ball of the 19th over.

A six brought up Roy's half-century from 23 balls - the joint second quickest for England in T20s - and the hosts looked set for a total in excess of 200.
