India defeated England in the high-scoring fifth T20 to claim the series 3-2 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. 

Thanks to Rohit Sharma's sensational 64 off 34 balls and captain Virat Kohli's unbeaten 80 off 52 balls, India set a massive target of 224 runs for England.

The visitors won the toss and opted to field on Saturday. India dropped KL Rahul for this match and in his absence captain Kohli opened the innings with Rohit Sharma.

He hammered 80 not out off 52 balls. His innings included seven 4s and two 6s. Rohit Sharma smashed 64 off 34 balls. The duo helped India to score 224 for two wickets in 20 overs. 

Hardik Pandya (39 off 17 balls) and Suryakumar Yadav (32 off 17 balls) also helped to propel the hosts to the huge total.

In the run chase, Jos Buttler (52 off 34) and Dawid Malan (68 off 46) kept India on their toes. They stitched a strong partnership of 130 runs. However, Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled the wicketkeeper-batsman in the 13th over.

Dawid Malan on Saturday beat Virat Kohli and Babar Azam to become the fastest batsman to amass 1000 runs in the format.

For India, Bhuvneshwar took two wickets for 15 runs in four overs. Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya's bowling was another positive for Kohli's team.
