Kohli scored his 27th international T20 50 and ended up scoring 69 runs in last 5 overs which gave ray of some hope – but in the end total of 156 did not prove enough.

England BEAT India by 8 Wickets in 3rd T20: Skipper Kohli’s masterclass takes hosts to 156/6
Down and out going into the last five overs of the innings, skipper Virat Kohli led from the front in all-rounder Hardik Pandya’s company as the duo added 69 runs from 30 balls to take the hosts to a fighting 156/6 in the third T20I of the five-match series against England at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Tuesday.
Just when things started to look good for the hosts, Pant got run-out trying to steal a third run. The wicket-keeper batsman fell well short of his ground as Sam Curran broke the stumps after Kohli called for a third. With India struggling at 86/4 in the 14th over, Wood was brought into the attack, and he removed Shreyas Iyer as the hosts lost half the side.
