Kohli smashed 43 off 34 balls that included four fours and a six, before he holed out off James Anderson in the penultimate over.

Jadeja faced 25 balls for his unbeaten 33.

Left-handed opener Shikhar Dhawan, who went into the final as the tournament’s leading scorer with 332 runs in four matches, hit 31 off 24 balls — including a six over third-man off Stuart Broad.

However, Dhawan was dismissed off Bopara’s second delivery and the all-rounder then removed Raina and Dhoni, out for a duck after uppercutting to third man, in the space of four balls.
