India vs England: 'Losing the toss and winning the game', Twitterati react to Virat Kohli and Co clinching T20I series

India hammered England by 36 runs in the deciding fifth match Saturday to clinch their Twenty20 series 3-2.

Chasing a mammoth 225 for victory, England managed just 188 for eight in 20 overs despite a 68 from Dawid Malan. Bhuvneshwar Kumar returned impressive figures of 2-15 in Ahmedabad.

The series saw the rise of stars like Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav on the international stage, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar too made a memorable comeback, finishing with figures of 2/15 in the fifth T20I.

Rohit Sharma (64) and skipper Virat Kohli (80 not out) set up the win with a blazing opening stand of 94 as India reached 224-2 to set a new best T20 score against England after being made to bat first.

In reply, Jos Buttler and Dawid Malan built a 130-run stand after Jason Roy's dismissal, but England suffered a collapse, losing Jonny Bairstow, Malan and skipper Eoin Morgan.

The two teams will now play three one-day international in Pune on 23, 26 and 28 March.

Here's how Twitteratti reacted to India clinching the series:

Lots of positives from an all-round Team India!


Tests and T20Is done, off to ODIs next!

Will it be (finally) RCB's year?



All hail Team India!

Team India just can't be beaten, can they?



A major threat in the T20 World Cup!

Raina couldn't be more proud!

Depth in the bench= Key to winning?
