Jos Buttler heaped praise on "world-class" batting partner Eoin Morgan, after the skipper secured a dramatic victory for England over India in the second Twenty20 clash.
The tourists needed three to win from the final delivery in Mumbai and Morgan held his nerve to smash a six straight over bowler Ashok Dinda's head.
"We're really pleased to get that victory. It was a world-class finish from a world-class finisher in Eoin Morgan," Buttler told Sky Sports 1.
"He was very confident and that rubbed off on me," Buttler added.
"It's a great Christmas present. It was a world-class performance from everyone and everyone's delighted to get a win."
Opener Michael Lumb gave England a decent platform with a half-century as they chased down 177-8.
He said: "It was nice to get a few runs, but more importantly to win the game.
"Morgs at the end there and Jos, to get over the line. It was very special to go home with the win. Well done to the boys to get a win at the end there. It's very special.
"Morgs has done it before, got us over the line. Well done to him."
