Rohit Sharma's Ton, Hardik Pandya's Four-Wicket Haul Powers India to Victory

England bowler Chris Jordan

There had been glimpses of his ability in the previous IPL season but as Baroda's highest run-getter in the tournament, he produced a string of impressive performances that convinced the men who matter in Indian cricket that it was time for a step up. Though the England camp keeps insisting that Ben Stokes, having recovered from a hamstring injury, may not find a place in the XI, he will nearly certainly replace Ball.

A manic conclusion to the innings saw five wickets fall in 15 balls, albeit for 21 runs, as Hardik Pandya finished with a career-best four for 38. Pacer Deepak Chahar, who was handed his first global T20I cap, went for plenty of runs but was instrumental in claiming Roy's wicket.

England put on 94 for the first wicket between top scorer Jason Roy (67) and Jos Buttler (34) but after the latter was bowled by Siddarth Kaul the run-rate slowed and they eventually limped to 198 for 9. Rohit did not have the best of outings with the bat in the first two T20s against England, scoring 32 and 5. He brought up his half-century off just 28 balls but unlike Roy, Rohit went on to play the big innings and brought up his third T20I ton off just 56 balls to take India over the finish line with eight balls to spare in the end.

Kohli too marched into the 40s with the help of two sixes in successive overs, but an fine caught and bowled from Jordan gave England a breakthrough against the run of play.

We could only prove our worth by working hard", said Cherchesov. "We felt your support from the first second". We succeeded but we have to keep going forward".


However, India slowly brought themselves back into the match.

The breakthrough came just as India were starting to wonder where to bowl to the opening duo.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni made history in the Twenty20 global against England in Bristol on Sunday becoming the first wicket-keeper to pocket five catches in a T20I. Eoin Morgan top-edged a slog, was dropped, but repeated it next ball for MS Dhoni to take one of his world-record five catches in the innings. The ODIs will be followed by 5 Test matches. Capitalising on starts like is something we have to learn from.

Rohit made a target of 199 look ridiculously easy on a small Bristol ground after the visiting bowlers did a commendable job at the back end to restrict the hosts to a sub-par score.

'I think the comeback from the bowlers was outstanding, we thought they would get 225-230. "India never really got away from us, but we struggled to take wickets (during the chase)", said Morgan. He hit good lengths and we didn't hit it. We had to make the batsmen feel like they would make mistakes.

"We have a fantastic supporting staff and leaders who give us enormous confidence to go and express ourselves".
