Kolkata, Oct 28: Brimming with confidence after thrashing England 5-0 in the ODIs, India would be aiming to wrap it up in style by beating the visitors in the one-off Twenty20 International at the Eden Gardens here tomorrow.


After a forgettable English summer during which India were demolished in all forms of the game, Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men returned to rule the roost in the home series against the same team.

India dominated in all the departments of the game with juniors as well as seniors doing their bit to humble the Englishmen.

The action will now shift to the shortest format when the 2008 ICC World Twenty20 winners lock horns against the reigning champions, who are struggling in Indian conditions.

That they have been installed as the number one Twenty20 side in ICC's new rankings would hardly make a difference if the Englishmen fail to capitalise on their last chance to restore some pride in India.

But this Indian team is on a mission after they came back from the England tour, even as skipper Dhoni insisted on not calling it a revenge series.

The ODI world champions had to prove themselves and they did it in style by not giving England any chance to fight back. The Indians exposed England's dreadful record here that reads one win from last 17 matches.

Dhoni, who is yet to be dismissed in this series, has lived up to the role of a finisher, amassing 212 unbeaten runs from four innings.

Virat Kohli too has matured as a batsman, shouldering responsibility with elan. The Delhi youngster has been India's leading run-getter in the absence of key players such as Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Yuvraj Singh.
