India thump England to clinch T20 series after Rohit Sharma century

IND vs ENG Live Score

A long tour of England can bring contingencies, and India responded gloriously to the first of those to maintain their clean sheet in T20I bilateral series of three matches.

IPL franchises were anxious about his lack of T20 match time and he was less attractive because, owing to England's Test series with Pakistan, he would not have been available for the whole season.

Considering the start England had, with Jos Buttler and Jason Roy racing to 94/0 inside eight overs, the pressure was on India. Indian spin that dominated the first T20I failed to get some wickets in the second one as Alex Hales led the team to victory.

There is little time for either side to reflect on the series though as attentions now turns to the three-match one-day global series that begins at Trent Bridge on Thursday.

England's leading Test wicket-taker James Anderson remarked that it was "not a day to be a bowler" as both sides made hay on a good pitch with short boundaries.

Spain , the 2010 champion, was played to a standstill and beaten on penalties in the round of 16. They trudged off the pitch after making it to the quarter-final for the first time in 48 years.

Earlier, England batsmen faced resistance from Indian bowlers as the latter kept picking wickets on regular intervals but the batsmen put up a decent show and kept the scoreboard running.

Siddharth Kaul NA Playing his first game in English conditions, the right arm pacer picked up 2 wickets and conceded 35 runs. "I haven't seen anyone hit the ball as hard as Rohit", Pandya told reporters at the post-match press conference. Then he hit the winning runs, a six off Jordan to clinch the series.

Earlier, India won the toss and chose to bowl first.

Hardik Pandya removed Morgan and soon he got rid of Hales.

Later, Stokes holed out to Kohli at mid off and once again in the same over Bairstow, who was looking good after smacking two fours and sixes, nicked a half volley to the keeper.

A flawless yorker by Umesh Yadav ended Willey's short inning. Dhoni took a simple catch.

Dhoni achieved this feat in his 93rd T20 worldwide.

The hosts ringed in just one change, Ben Stokes coming in place of Joe Root. At the halfway mark, India had fallen 11 runs behind what England had at the same time.

The England Test captain was dropped for the first time in any format in four years when Ben Stokes returned for the final Twenty20 global against India in Bristol and finds himself at a short-form crossroads. But he got back his mojo in the third T20I and smashed an unbeaten 100 off just 56 balls with the help of 11 boundaries and five sixes to steer India home. Rahul, who opened his account with a copybook straight drive, took over for a brief moment in the game as he lofted Liam Plunkett and pulled Jake Ball into the stands in the space of three deliveries. The way this Indian team is shaping up in the shorter version, even England will have to raise their game in order to stop Virat and his boys.
