You might have gone to the restroom for 2 minutes or your mother would've asked you to switch off the stove once the pressure cooker whistled and you might have missed things from the match. Don't worry, we have made a list of things you might have missed during the final T20I in Bristol.

The Magician getting dropped and Bhuvi ruled out due to an injury

Maybe you tuned in late, saw the Indian bowlers getting mauled and were wondering where are Bhuvi and Kuldeep. Don't worry, we have what you want. Kuldeep Yadav was dropped and Siddarth Kaul came in for this. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was ruled out due to a stiff back and Deepak Chahar made his debut.

Ball Mauled! 

Just 4 balls into Deepak Chahar's first T20I over, the umpires had to change the ball as it had taken way too much punishment to be used. Still baffled how this happened! Maybe Plastic balls were used?

Fake News! 

There was a massive mess up by the broadcasters as they mentioned England won the toss and chose to bowl when India had actually won the toss and chose to bowl first. Looks like someone is getting sacked today!

37 years old and MS Dhoni is still making new records

MS Dhoni becomes the first player to get 50 catches in T20I!

He was not done yet!

When MS Dhoni takes the pitch for India, it is only fair to assume that he will create a new record of some sort. Today, after becoming the first player to reach 50 T20I catches, Dhoni make became the first wicketkeeper to take 5 catches in a T20I match!  

Get a grip, Ben Stokes

After a great start to the innings, Ben Stokes found himself in a position where he could go after the bowling. While trying to hit Siddarth Kaul for a six on the off-side, not only did Stokes find the fielder on the point boundary but also tried to find the one on short fine leg with his bat.

No tickets, no problem! 

People who invested in apartments next to the stadium got their money worth today as they could the watch final T20I free of cost!

The Bengali who said no to sweets! 

As everyone knows, it was Sourav Ganguly's birthday today, but when he was offered cake today, he said it was too sweet for him and had only 1 bite out off the crust.

When Rohit Sharma made Sachin Tendulkar's wish come true!

Sachin initially tweeted that the Bristol pitch was a 225-run track, but the Indian bowlers had ideas. They restricted England to 198. The Indian legend then went on to predict that India would finish the match in the 19th over. He has Rohit Sharma to thank to get his predictions true. Maybe Sachin should give Nostragamus a try!!
