After taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match T20I series, Team India tested their bench strength in the final T20I of the three-match series. Four changes were made and the hosts had played with an inexperienced bowling unit. The Indian bowlers were unable to stick to tight line and length throughout the innings and so England posted a total of 215/7.

Dawid Malan was the pick of the bowlers for England as he scored 77 runs while Liam Livingstone scored unbeaten 42 runs to provide a clinical finish for them. However, Livingstone would have dismissed early but Virat Kohli dropped a simple catch while fielding in the deep.

Harshal Patel was bowling the second last over of the innings and Livingstone tried to hit him towards deep mid-wicket. Virat Kohli came running to take the catch but he almost over-run the ball. As a result, Livingstone received a lifeline on 36 runs and went on to play a clinical knock in the end.
