Yuzvendra Chahal returned the stunning figures of 6 for 25 in four overs - the best by an Indian bowler in T20 history, and the third best overall - as England's batsmen capitulated in woeful fashion at the end of a long and fruitless tour. In a remarkable finale, India claimed eight wickets for eight runs in 19 balls to derail what had, up to the start of the 14th over, been a spirited pursuit of 203 in the series decider.

Instead, India wrapped up a sweep of all three formats - following their 4-0 Test series win before Christmas and their high-scoring 2-1 win in the ODIs - to send Eoin Morgan's men home empty-handed. And, as had been the case in each of the other two series, it was England's fallibility to spin that proved their undoing, with Chahal's flight and variation proving illegible to a succession of weary England batsman for whom the flight back to England now cannot come soon enough.
