Toss England chose to bowl vs India

Eoin Morgan made the first big call of the night in his 100th T20I, as he chose to bowl in the third T20I.

With the series locked at 1-1, after a pair of comprehensive victories for each of the chasing teams in the first two games, Virat Kohli admitted he would also have preferred the chance to field first before the dew sets in in the evening, but acknowledged that the chance for his new-look line-up to get aggressive from the outset would be an important part of their preparation in the lead-up to the T20 World Cup in October.

Both sides made a solitary change to the line-up on Sunday. England resisted the temptation to return Moeen Ali to their starting XI, with Mark Wood passed fit after sustaining a bruised ankle in the opening fixture and trusted to resume the 90mph aggression with which he gave India’s batsmen the hurry-up in England’s eight-wicket series-opening win. Tom Curran, who endured a chastening return for the second game, returned to the bench.
