T20 Last Over Finish In Nagpur.

In a game marred by some appalling umpiring, this incredibly absorbing match ended in a win for India - and all credit to the home team - but this encounter was handed over to them on a plate.
 There were three truly atrocious LBW decisions. The first ones had each granted a 'life' to two of the higher order Indian batsmen - the camera showing the ugly truth.
At the end of England's innings, Joe Root was given out to a ball that was too high; was missing leg stump; which had, in any case, already struck the bat!
So the narrowest of wins imaginable - just 5 runs levelled the three match series.
I hope that it is England getting the rub of the green in the series decider on Wednesday!
