India defeated England by 36 runs in the fifth Twenty20 International to claim the series 3-2 in Ahmedabad on Saturday.

Skipper Virat Kohli contributed an unbeaten 80 while Suryakumar Yadav scored 32 off 17 balls before Chris Jordan's stunning piece of fielding resulted in his dismissal off Adil Rashid. Hardik Pandya remained unbeaten on 39. India struck early with Bhivneshwar Kumar dismissing dangerous Jason Roy for a duck and kept consistent pressure on England. Dawid Malan (68) and Jos Buttler (52) scored half-centuries but the required run-rate kept mounting. They managed 188 for 8 for in their 20 overs. Two teams will now engage in a three-match ODI series, starting with the first one on Tuesday. All matches will be played in Pune, without fans, of course!
