Team India lost the third and final T20I match against England, even though they had won the first two. The Men in Blue needed to score 216 runs to win, but they got off to a bad start. Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, and Virat Kohli all got out early. But Suryakumar Yadav hit a great century and kept his team in the game.
Suryakumar had a big inning, hitting 14 fours and six sixes while scoring 117 runs in just 55 balls. He almost won the game by himself for India, but when he tried to hit a big shot against Moeen Ali, Philip Salt, who was stationed at long-off, caught him. After Yadav was got out, the crowd stood up and cheered.
During the commentary, Nasser Hussain said: A truly remarkable innings from Suryakumar Yadav
Several English cricketers congratulated the batter on his innings as he walked back to the pavilion. At Trent Bridge, the whole crowd could be seen applauding the batter and giving him a standing ovation. Yadav was also the player who scored the most runs in the T20I series, with 171 runs in just three innings.

England won the toss early in the game and chose to bat first. The English pair of Jos Buttler and Jason Roy got things off to a great start. Dawid Malan and Liam Livingstone also did a great job as the Three Lions went over 200 runs.
Ravi Bishnoi and Harshal Patel both got two wickets for India, and Umran Malik and Avesh Khan each got one. As was already said, the Men in Blue didn’t get off to a great start in their chase, but Yadav went crazy against the English bowling line-up and beat up every single one of them. When the batter was out, the Men in Blue needed to score 25 runs in the last eight balls. Before he was out, though, he hit his first international century.
