Eoin Morgann slams England batsmen for 'dissapointing' performance in the defeat to India
Chasing 203 to win the final T20 and take the three-match series, they lost an astonishing eight wickets for eight runs in 19 balls and were hammered by 75 runs.
They have now been beaten in Tests 4-0, one-dayers 2-1 and T20s 2-1 by Virat Kohli's team.
Skipper Eoin Morgan slammed his side's batsmen, saying: "We haven't produced a batting performance like that for two years – I can't explain it.
"If it was a consistent run of performances like that then it would hurt to fail again but our batting has been outstanding for a long time.

"It's very disappointing. For 60 per cent of the game we were ahead of it but fell away terribly. We committed the cardinal sin of losing two batsmen very quickly.
"But India performed well and I take my hat off to them – we were completely outplayed. We under-performed and we weren't good enough."
Morgan was going well with Joe Root but both batsmen were dismissed in successive deliveries and the rest of the England's batting fell away.
Morgan criticised his team-mates for going for big shots from the off, saying: "It might have taken some smarter cricket to get something going and wrestle back momentum."

Morgan added: "I thought we were going quite well – the majority of runs are scored in last ten overs on this ground. We've seen with Bangalore in the IPL and India did it today."
India smashed 70 runs off the last five overs of their innings to post an imposing total of 202 for six in their 20 overs.
England have now lost eight of their last 11 winner-take-all white-ball matches dating back to the final of the 2013 Champions Trophy at Edgbaston where they lost to India.
Morgan refused to acknowledge they were a team that chokes but did admit his side are not good at killing series off. "When things are going your way you have to make the most of it," he said.
