Bristol: As India blazed to their eight consecutive T20I series triumph, after beating England in the third and final T20 of the series, MS Dhoni etched his name in the record books here on Sunday.

While England enjoyed a blistering start as Jason Roy and Jos Buttler went berserk, Hardik Pandya, who conceded 22 runs in his first over, made a strong comeback removing four England batsmen in his next three overs as England scored 198 runs, losing nine wickets in 20 overs.

 

Dhoni, meanwhile, was involved in six of England’s nine wickets.

The former Indian cricket team skipper, who scalped five catches and a run-out, became the first wicketkeeper to hold onto five catches in a T20I.

Dhoni caught Roy, Alex Hales, Eoin Morgan, Jonny Bairstow and Liam Plunkett and affected Chris Jordan's run-out on the final ball of the England's innings.

Dhoni, who recently became the holder of most stumpings (33) in T20Is, also became the first wicketkeeper to cross the 50-catch mark in T20I.  

India chased down England's total with ease as Rohit Sharma scored an unbeaten hundred, his third in the shortest format of the game.
