Record bowling figures for India, and a near-record collapse from England

The best-bowling figures in T20Is ESPNcricinfo Ltd

6/25 Yuzvendra Chahal's figures - the best by an India bowler and the third-best overall in T20Is. This was only the third six-wicket haul in T20Is after two from Ajantha Mendis. No India bowler had taken a five-for before; R Ashwin's 4 for 8 against Sri Lanka in Visakhapatnam last year was the previous best an Indian. Chahal had picked up only five wickets in 20 overs in his first five T20Is before this. The only other five-wicket haul against England prior to this was Lasith Malinga's 5 for 31 in Pallekele in 2012.

8 Runs for which England lost their last eight wickets - the second-worst eight-wicket collapse in international cricket. New Zealand had lost their last eight wickets for five runs in a Test against Australia in Wellington in 1946. England slid from 119 for 2 in 13.2 overs to 127 all out in 16.3 overs (that is, 19 balls).

1 Number of bigger victory margins for India in terms of runs in T20s; they won this match by 75 runs. They had won by 90 runs against the same opposition at the Premadasa in the 2012 World T20, which is the biggest margin. For England, this was the fifth-worst defeat.

1 This was the first T20 bilateral series won by India against England. In the previous four, England had won three and one was drawn. This was the fourth three-match T20I series in which India took part - they have won all of those.

5 Number of England batsmen out for a duck - the joint-most in an innings by the top-eight teams and overall the joint second-most. New Zealand also had five ducks against Pakistan in Christchurch in 2011. Before this, England never had more than two ducks in any of their 91 T20I innings.

76 Number of matches taken by MS Dhoni to score his maiden T20I fifty, easily the most by any batsman. The previous most was 42 matches by Ireland's Gary Wilson. Overall, this was his 19th fifty in T20s. He also completed 5000 runs in his T20 career today.

2010 The last time Suresh Raina scored a T20I fifty - against Zimbabwe in Harare. Today's half-century was his first such score in 38 innings. He had made 13 scores of 30 or more in this period though. This was his fifth 50-plus score in T20Is and first in India.

0 Number of younger players than Rishabh Pant to debut in T20Is for India. Pant debuted at 19 years, 120 days. The previous youngest for India was Ishant Sharma at 19 years, 152 days.
