5 biggest Indian triumphs in T20 internationals
- Biggest Indian wins in terms of runs in T20Is.
#4 India vs England 2017, Victory Margin - 75 runs
This match will be remembered for MS Dhoni’s one and only T20I half-century. The three-match series against England was levelled at 1-1 and the final match at Bengaluru was do-or-die for both the teams.
Batting first, India lost Virat Kohli on the first ball of the second over. However, it did not affect the scoring rate much as Suresh Raina (63) and MS Dhoni (56) stuck into England, scoring quick half centuries.
This set the platform for Yuvraj (SR: 270) and Pandya (SR: 275) to launch an assault in the final overs and take the total past 200.
After England lost Sam Billings for nought, his opening partner Jason Roy scored a quick-fire 32. The 64-run partnership between Joe Root and skipper Eoin Morgan further threatened to take the game away.
Chahal then stepped up his game to pick up his career-best figures of 4-0-25-6. The last seven English batsmen crumbled under pressure and could just contribute 8 runs. India won the match by 75 runs as England got all-out for 127.Published 27 Dec 2017, 15:27 IST
