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.

"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.

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.
