England cricket coach Trevor Bayliss believes his team have grown in India
England lost eight wickets for just eight runs, the second-worst collapse in the history of international cricket, to lose the third T20 and the series.
It means they return to England having lost a series in each format of the game in India having won just two of their 11 international matches.
But Bayliss is confident that his side are under no illusions about their future and what they must do to improve.
"We've learned that these players are resilient," Bayliss said.
"They're honest with themselves and they have been right throughout this three months.
"We've played some good cricket but they realise that they've got a lot of work to do if they want to compete with India in India in these conditions.

"They've played very, very well and they've deserved their victories."
England's next fixtures will see them continue their preparations for June's Champions Trophy on home soil.
They have three ODIs away from home against the West Indies before returning to England for 50-over series against Ireland and South Africa.

A number of players may miss some of those games to take part in the Indian Premier League (IPL) which starts on April 3.
And Bayliss admitted that it would be beneficial for some of his squad to remain in India and be part of the world's premier franchise T20 competition.
"We'll look at it on a case-by-case basis," Bayliss added.
"Some of the guys could benefit from playing in the IPL and the experiences that brings with it.
"But there are the guys who are trying to get into the team and from my point of view, it would good for them to play and show us what they can do in the ODI form of the game."
