England vs India: Rohit Sharma is pretty fond of his nickname

Both teams now head to Trent Bridge for the first one-day worldwide of a five-match series between the two sides which begins on Thursday. Chasing 199 for victory, Rohit remained not out on 100 off 56 balls, and including 11 fours and five sixes. After the 22-run over, he went for just 16 in the next three. Pandya opened, and persisted with, short balls on the hard wicket in his first over that went for 22 runs, of which Roy hit 21. Pandya hit 33 not out off just 14 balls as India reached to 201 for 3 in 18.4 overs. There was just time for Rohit to bring up his hundred before Pandya (33no) wrapped up the match and the series with a six over long on.

After England started with a bang, he pulled things back first with a three-run sixth over.

Needing a fraction under 10 per over, India suffered an early setback as Shikhar Dhawan (5) flicked the ball towards short fine leg where Jake Ball took a superb catch off David Willey (1-37). You can watch video highlights of IND vs ENG here.

KL Rahul (19) came in and looked in the kind of form that brought him a century in the series opener at Old Trafford, only for a staggering catch from Chris Jordan, sprinting back from mid-on and diving, to cut his innings short.

Paul Farbrace, who was in charge of England for all four of their Twenty20 matches against Australia and India, admitted he was protecting Root when he said earlier in the Vitality series that he would not be dropped.

MS Dhoni took the fifth catch of the match, the first wicket-keeper to achieve the feat. He finished with 54 catches as England were restricted to 198/9 by a resurgent India.

Considering the start England had, with Jos Buttler and Jason Roy racing to 94/0 inside eight overs, the pressure was on India. IND vs ENG 3rd T20I Highlights. He then played his part in the dismissals of Alex Hales, Eoin Morgan, Jonny Bairstow and Liam Plunkett.

Rohit Sharma also became the fifth worldwide player to amass 2000 runs in T20I cricket.

Buttler and Roy scored 73/0 in six overs with both in-form batters smacking 10 fours and four sixes in the process. India has made two changes in the team where Bhuvi replaced by Siddharth Kaul and Deepak Chahar for Kuldeep. I've made sure that I keep on learning from my mistakes.

Kaul finally ended the carnage by rattling the stumps as Buttler tried to swipe across the line.

With wickets falling at regular intervals, England managed only 87 runs in the second half of their innings despite being at a rather comfortable 111/2 from their first ten.

Chahar then got his first worldwide scalp with a slower delivery that the risky Roy flicked to Dhoni behind the stumps. We had the quality to bowl those wicket-taking deliveries. He contributed just 32 runs with the bat and picked up 6 wickets with the ball at an economy of 8.25. The rest of the batsmen could not take England past the 200-mark but still posted a more than par total.
