Morgan said: "Outstanding bowling from Chahal"

Terming it as the "worst performance" in the last two years, England skipper Eoin Morgan reckoned that his and Joe Root's quick wickets was the turning point for India's 75-run win in the third and final T20 International on Wednesday.

"We made a fatal error in losing two in (set) batsmen when we were going so well. Our batting performance was possibly the worst in the last two years, but we won't necessarily dwell too much into that," Morgan said in the post-match presentation after India clinched the T20I series 2-1 at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Eight wickets for 8 runs in 19 balls instigated by 26 year old leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal's match winning figures of 6-25 in his 4 overs enabled India to rout England by 75 runs in the third and final Twenty20 International of the series at Chinnaswamy Stadium, and with it take the series 2-1.

Batting first having been put in to bat, India recovered from their poor past performances to post a competitive total of 202-6 in their 20 overs, led by half-centuries from Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni, assisted by a late blitz from Yuvraj Singh, who pummeled 27 from just 10 balls.

England have also made one change, bringing back pacer Liam Plunkett in place of left-arm spinner Liam Dawson.
