    India outfox England to reach T20 World Cup final

    Date:

    The Indian spin trio of Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja combined brilliantly to outwit England and power to a spot in the final. After being set a target of 172 by the in-form Indian batting unit, England found themselves entangled in a web of spin bowling that kept them grounded. While Patel and Yadav picked up three wickets each, Jadeja chipped in with accurate spells to finish with figures of 1/21 from his four overs.

    England captain Jos Buttler acknowledged that they were short of their best with the bat against the dominant Indian bowling attack. However, despite the defeat, he had no regrets about choosing to bowl first after winning the toss. Buttler said the toss decision was well thought out, even if retrospect hinted some missed opportunities with selection. He praised India's all-round show, saying they proved very difficult to beat on the day.

    India will now prepare to take on an in-form South Africa in Sunday's final in Barbados. Having outclassed the defending champions, they will hope to spin their way to a historic T20 Cup title.
