Masterful Rohit leads India to series win over England

Masterful Rohit leads India to series win over England

Pandya took 4-38, his best figures in T20 cricket and wicketkeeper MS Dhoni became the first player to take five catches in global T20 and ran out Chris Jordan on the last ball of England's innings for good measure.

Rohit Sharma slammed an unbeaten hundred against England in the third T20.

The England bowler says they still have a lot of confidence in themselves as they look to bounce back from their defeat to India on Friday.

In-form Indian batsman KL Rahul has heaved a sigh of relief after finally breaking his chain of half-centuries with a sublime hundred against England in the opening T20 global of the three-match series. Though his India A teammate Deepak Chahar was handed a debut in the decider, the left-arm spinner couldn't make a place for himself in the XI courtesy of the wrist-spinners India had in their line-up.

A six brought up Roy's half-century from 23 balls - the joint second quickest for England in T20s - and the hosts looked set for a total in excess of 200. India reached the 50-run mark in just under five overs.

"He took three wickets in four balls today and deceived us". The kind that took one back to the era of India's magical spin quartet and that of the modern master Shane Warne - luring the batsman to doom.

Credit has to be given to India's bowlers, who recovered well from a chastening start. Pandya was not done yet, as he had Alex Hales (30) caught behind too.

Root has been struggling for form in the T20 game making nought and nine in his previous two innings but captain Eoin Morgan said he will back for the one-day game at Trent Bridge.

Morgan and acting coach Paul Farbrace had a hard call to make before a ball was bowled, to accommodate the return of fit-again all-rounder Ben Stokes - and in the end it was Test captain Joe Root who was dropped. The execution wasn't up to scratch.

Sachin also seemed to be in a playful mood as we saw him tout Hardik Pandya as Kung-fu Pandya and Umesh Yadav as Ninja.

"That total isn't defendable when a guy comes out and plays like that on a small ground". Not many batsmen from around the world, including India, have the ability to read the extraordinary craft that a bowler of this kind can generate.

"But it was brilliant to bounce back in a must-win game ..."

"The good thing about this generation of players is that we are backed to the hilt".

Morgan added: "I thought they bowled brilliantly". Wherever I find myself I have to adapt and keep learning, and that was a different role tonight, it was like me and Jos swapped roles. I don't particularly like it - I don't think it is necessarily in the spirit of cricket. "With the wicket being so good, I knew I just needed to stay there as long as possible".
