Hales and Buttler put on a record-breaking partnership of 158 runs for the second wicket, the highest ever in a T20 World Cup match. Hales scored a brilliant knock of 99 off just 55 balls, while Buttler scored an unbeaten 64 off 44 balls.
The pair put on a masterclass in batting, taking the game away from India with a flurry of boundaries and sixes. Hales was particularly impressive, hitting 11 fours and 5 sixes in his innings.
England’s bowlers also played their part in the victory, restricting India to a modest total. Chris Jordan was the pick of the bowlers, taking 3 wickets for just 19 runs in his four overs.
