When Jonny Bairstow was caught behind by Dhoni off Hardik Pandya, he achieved this feat. Four wickets for Pandya 4/38 was career-best figures for the Indian all-rounder in T20Is.

Besides the five catches, Dhoni, who turned 37 on Saturday, effected a run-out off the last ball, preventing England 198/9 from reaching the 200-run mark.

Earlier, India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to field first against England in the third and final T20I in Bristol on Sunday.

With India winning the first match and England returning the favour in the next, this game will decide who bags the series.

For India, Siddarth Kaul came back into the mix in place of injured Bhuvneshwar Kumar, while Deepak Chahar was handed his international debut at the expense of Kuldeep Yadav who was dropped.

The hosts ringed in just one change, Ben Stokes coming in place of Joe Root.
