Twitter was all crazy as Suryakumar Yadav hit his maiden T20I hundred for India as the Men in Blue pursued a record chase against England in the third T20I of the series being played at the Trent Bridge ground in Nottingham on July 10, 2022.

England had won the toss and Jos Buttler decided to bat first this time, and also announced that two changes were made. Phil Salt and Reece Topley were included in the XI for Sam Curran and Matt Parkinson.

India, on the other hand, made four changes as Shreyas Iyer, Avesh Khan, Umran Malik, and Ravi Bishnoi came in for Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, and Yuzvendra Chahal.

Other major contributors were Jason Roy (27), Chris Jordan (19), and Jos Buttler (18), as England slammed 215/7 in 20 overs.

For India, Ravi Bishnoi and Harshal Patel, both took 2 wickets finishing with figures of 2/30 and 2/35 respectively.
