India will take on England in the third and final Twenty-20 global of the series at County Ground in Bristol.
India won the first T20 by eight wickets at Manchester before Englandleveled the three-match series with a five-wicket win at Cardiff.
Man of the series Rohit Sharma's 3rd T20I century and Hardik Pandya's exploits with the bat and the ball propelled India to victory in the series decider in Bristol.
Pandya claimed four wickets as England finished on 198-9 following a collapse from the tail as they chased quick runs at the end of the match.
Cardiff, July 6 The seasoned Mahendra Singh Dhoni clobbered 22 runs in the final over and lifted India from a precarious 22 for three to 148 for five in testing conditions in the second T20 global against England here today.
Hardik Pandya, who shone with the ball earlier with a four-wicket haul, also made a significant contribution with the bat.
Kohli was left in disbelief when he drove a delivery straight back to Jordan, who took a catch at waist height, but Pandya picked up where the captain had left off.
It is still very early in this long tour and whoever wins this series will probably not be what is remembered come early September, but there are early bragging rights on offer with the victors also getting reassurance that they are heading along the right path towards the next global event in 2020.
Captain Virat Kohli scored 43 on 29 balls with two fours and 2 sixes. Pandya then sealed the series victory in style with a six.
Rendered ineffective in the previous match, India's wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal would look to bounce back against "well-prepared" England batsmen as the two teams clash in the series-deciding third Twenty20 worldwide, here on Sunday.
Batting first, India could manager148/5 from their 50 overs.
Virat Kohli joined Rohit Sharma at the crease and they played some sumptuous shots at an intriguing run rate. Buttler was dropped by Siddharth Kaul when on 20 with Chahal being the unfortunate bowler. Record century-maker on Tuesday, Aaron Finch, went for just 16 while fellow opener Darcy Short struggled to 28 off a glacial 34 balls.
"When I went for 22 in an over I thought the T20 is a amusing format and the only thing to do was to come back and bowl my best balls". In the 14th over, Chahal missed a chance to dismiss Eoin Morgan (then on 4), failing to latch onto a high catch at cover only to end up banging his head on the ground.
Dhoni, who took became the first player to take five catches in a T20 worldwide, removed his glove before the final ball of the innings, making it easier for him to run out Jordan as he tried to pinch a bye.
Hales, meanwhile, admits he has no easy solution - other than keep trying to win matches. The hosts scored 149 for five in 19.4 overs to overcome India's sub-par total of 148 for five on Friday on a Sophia Gardens surface that offered bounce.
