Note: In a career context, all numbers are restricted between 0 and 5. However, in a match context, the numbers are not restricted. For simplicity, we are changing the scale here in the report and expressing every Match Impact number as a percentage. The maximum percentage (100) is assigned to the highest impact player of the match. All other players in the match are scaled relative to him. Negative Match Impact indicates that not only did the player not contribute in the match, but he also had an adverse effect on his team’s chances.​​

Scorecard

India trounced England by 75 runs in Bangalore on Wednesday (1 Feb) and, in so doing, clinched the three-match Twenty20 International series 2-1.

For his match-winning spell (6 for 25 in four overs), Yuzvendra Chahal was the highest impact player and bowler of the decider.

Five of Chahal’s six wickets were that of England’s top/middle-order. The legspinner’s dismissal of Eoin Morgan ended a partnership and sparked a spectacular collapse as the visiting team lost their last eight wickets for just eight runs. He was economical too and his rapid strikes kept the opposition under pressure. Unsurprisingly, this was the highest impact performance of Yuzvendra Chahal’s Twenty20 career (across domestic and international levels).

Suresh Raina was the highest impact batsman for his 45-ball 63. It was a knock under pressure that held the innings together, courtesy two key partnerships (61 runs for the second wicket with KL Rahul, followed by 55 runs for the third with MS Dhoni).

Meanwhile, Eoin Morgan finished as England’s highest impact player for his 21-ball 40.

As many as five Englishmen failed this evening while the home team had only two such players.
