Bangalore: Indian opener Lokesh Rahul, who hit a brilliant 71-run knock during the 2nd T20I at Nagpur, was looking in fine form yet again during the 3rd T20I at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.
After losing skipper Virat Kohli’s wicket in the second over of the innings, Rahul began rebuilding the innings with new batsman Suresh Raina. Despite losing an early wicket, both batsmen were looking to put the visitors under pressure with some lusty blows.
In the seventh over of the innings, Eoin Morgan introduced spin as Moeen Ali came to bowl his first over of the innings.
The offie bowled a full wide delivery to Rahul, who charged down the wicket and tonked it straight down the ground for a humongous six. How powerful was the shot could be ascertained from the fact that the ball cleared the stadium by a fair margin.

After putting 202 runs on board, Men in Blue registered a comprehensive 75-run win after skittling England out for just 127 runs.
