11:41 PM

Man of the match: Suryakumar Yadav

Surykumar makes a big impact in today's match as he set up Indian innings after the team lost Rohit Sharma early. His first ball SIX was the highlights of the day.

11:40 PM

Here's what Kohli said after the match

  • Proper game against a top side in this format. The wicket was better than any other game and the dew factor was massive, bigger than any other game as well. The wicket allowed us to get to that total.
  • There were a few instances in the middle which were strange, but having said that 180+ was what we were looking at. Special mention to Surya, he batted outstandingly well in his first game. Similar to Ishan.
  • They are quite fearless having played in the IPL. We don't have any T20Is after this so I want the guys to be confident and come out of it very strongly. With the ball we were quite clinical. Shardul turned it around but our powerplay start kept England in check and under pressure.
  •  
11:33 PM

Here's what Morgan said after the match

  • It's definitely been the closest game so far and India played much better and thoroughly deserve the win.
  • There was a lot more dew throughout the game and the game ebbed and flowed a lot.
  • The swing and momentum of the game went back to India and the the last over made it interesting.
  • We are just trying to learn as much as we can in this series. The progression to the World Cup in seven months is important.
  • We were very happy at the half way stage knowing that dew was around.
  • The ball didn't turn much and we were in control. In overs 16 and 17 we lost three wickets in eight balls and that set us back. It just leaves too much for the bowlers against a top quality side.
