India were deflated by a sensational Jos Buttler as England cantered to an eight-wicket win in the third T20I match at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on Tuesday. The win helped Eoin Morgan's side take a 2-1 lead in the five-match series. Morgan won a crucial toss and put India into bat. The hosts, who brought Rohit Sharma, once again failed to get a good start with KL Rahul getting for a duck, again. Then, by the 12th over, they were four down. But skipper Virat Kohli, batting at four to accommodate Ishan Kishan, hit a majestic 46-ball 77 not out as India set a 157-run target. England's chase started well with Buttler on the song. Yuzvendra Chahal got the wicket of Jason Roy in the fourth over, but Dawid Malan scored crucial 18 runs to ease the pressure on Buttler. Then, Jonny Bairstow joined the hunt with an unbeaten 40 off 28 balls. Buttler was undefeated on 83 off 52. But the one script which can't be missed in this series is, chasing teams have won all three matches so far. For the record, the win was England's 99th over India across formats. They thus joined the West Indies in the second spot behind Australia (132) for the most victories against India. The fourth match is scheduled for Thursday at the same venue: Catch highlights here:
