India eye series victory against England

England bowler Chris Jordan

The onslaught was led by openers Jason Roy (67) and wicketkeeper Jos Buttler (34), who shared a 94-run opening partnership in 7.5 overs, coupled by poor bowling from the Indian bowlers, who were guilty of bowling either too full or short.

Kohli and Rohit then took India to 100/2 in 10 overs and were on course for a win with a 89-run stand for the third wicket.

Rohit Sharma backed up the heroics of pace bowler Hardik Pandya by hitting 100 not out as India clinched the T20 worldwide series at Bristol. For a team starting the tour without the services Bumrah and Mohammed Shami, who was yo-yo'ed out of the tour, Kuldeep's career best haul of five wickets for 24 runs must have given Kohli a big breather considering the challenges that lie ahead.

The sides start a three-game one-day global series on Thursday before playing five tests.

Unfortunately for England, the Indian batsmen also enjoyed the bright sunshine and short boundaries in Bristol.

The bowlers had their moments, certainly. He would be the second India player to reach the milestone after Virat Kohli and fifth overall.

K.L. Rahul (19) then made his way into the crease and joined Rohit to play some glorious shots to keep the required run rate under check and the scoreboard ticking.

India vs England 3rd T20 worldwide will be aired live on Sony Six/HD in India.

Mind you, the match got stretched only because of debutant Jake Ball's horror last over that went for 22.

The only time in the innings the England bowlers were able to slow down the proceedings, was in the 15th and 16th overs, when Chris Jordan and Adil Rashid conceded just three and four runs respectively. And when it did, with the big square boundaries, it is naturally a plan that we do bowl into the wicket.

Eoin Morgan and Virat Kohli, captain of England and India respectively.

Hardik Pandya took four crucial wickets and also played a cameo alongside Rohit Sharma to ensure a smooth end to the series.

Playing his 500th worldwide game, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (32 not out off 24 balls) then came to the crease and added a quick 32 runs off 24 balls with Kohli. 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. Alex Hales's fifty means Ben Stokes's reintegration into the final XI isn't going to be as easy.

Dhoni, who took became the first player to take five catches in a T20 worldwide, removed his glove before the final ball of the innings, making it easier for him to run out Jordan as he tried to pinch a bye. Stokes returns to the England squad for the third match and bolsters their confidence being yet another key member to have played in the IPL. The execution wasn't up to scratch. "We knew the wicket would be nice to play on".

Morgan added: "I thought they bowled brilliantly". They did their homework and played Kuldeep really well.

"On a good wicket, small ground, we should be better than that".

Hales made sure he was his own worst critic between matches, and also got to work in the nets with England's computerised bowling simulator Merlyn.

"We were pushed back initially in the first six".

Rohit Sharma need 14 runs for 2000 in T20Is.
