With 3 runs to win, what a finish for England,  Eoin Morgan the England captain hitting a six off the last ball from Ashok Dinda, to level the Twenty20 two match series.

A signed photograph of Irishman Morgan playing the winning stroke would be a significant attribute to any collection, cricket memorabilia is already in demand, signed bats, presentations and autographed collectables from the England tour, especially in view of winning a Test Series in India for the first time since 1985.

With India having made 177/8, the tourists got off to a good start with a brilliant opening stand of 80 over 8.2 overs from Alex Hales and Michael Lumb, despite Yuvraj Singh once again putting in a formidable bowling display, the left arm spinner took 3/17 including the all important wickets of Lumb,Wright and Hales leaving England needing 37 from the final 3 overs.

The England team have returned to the UK for a well-earned break before returning to India on Jan 2nd for five One Day Internationals  against India starting on the Jan 7  in Rajkot , this series will be another good opportunity for cricket memorabilia enthusiasts bearing in mind that the best collectables are associated with the best match winning events. Lets hope that's how it turns out!!

All in all the six wicket victory was a splendid way for England to end a memorable series.
