Over 19 India 201/3/No

So, India landed the first punch in Manchester, England returned a mild one back in Cardiff and then the Men in Blue delivered the knockout blow here in Bristol. They take the 3-match T20I series 2-1 and will be full of confidence heading into the ODI series. First match is on the 12th of July in Nottingham at 12.30 pm local (11.30 am GMT). Don't forget to join us. Until then, it's goodbye and cheers!
India captain, Virat Kohli says that the comeback from the bowlers was outstanding. Feels that a score of 225-230 was on the cards but he credits his bowlers for restricting them to much less. States that his bowlers have good skills and they executed their plans to perfection. Adds that he is proud of his boys. Informs that Pandya is a very confident cricketer - both with bat and ball. Opines that the way he came back after being hit for 22 in the first over is what you want to see as a captain. Adds that getting 33 in quick time was the icing on the cake. Backs his decision to not play Kuldeep Yadav as he feels that every bowler suffered here. Announces that they want to continue trying different things going ahead. Expresses that it is great to have a series win at the start of the tour and they will be aiming to build upon this.
England captain, Eoin Morgan says that it was a tremendous start with the bat. Appreciates Roy and Buttler for setting a great platform but rues the fact that the following batsmen couldn't capitalize. Credits India for bowling well. Opines that they were below par on a ground where the pitch is flat and the boundaries are short. Adds that it was a tough ground to defend on. Feels that teams like India and Pakistan have a huge fan following and they are used to it. Mentions that this series has had three different tests for them. Reckons that Trent Bridge has been a good ground for them. Informs that they have lost a few tosses there in the recent past but the result has gone their way. Ends by saying that the toss will be less important.
When Hardik Pandya arrived at the crease, the tourists needed 48 off 31 balls. With Rohit Sharma at the other end batting on 83, the ball was still firmly in India's court. A quiet over followed after Kohli's wicket but that didn't disturb India's progress much. Jake Ball went for 15 runs in the 17th over and that opened the floodgate. The Sharma-Pandya combo hammered the required runs with ease and achieved the target with 8 balls to spare. It was that kind of a day when you are not supposed to talk too much about the bowling, unless the bowler's name is Hardik Pandya. He also started on a wrong note by conceding 22 in his first over but then in the next three overs he picked 4 wickets by giving away only 16 runs. The Indian all-rounder has warmed up well for this tour.
198 on any ground is a challenging total, even a match-winning one, but not here in Bristol where the boundaries were on the shorter side. India lost a couple of wickets inside the Powerplay but never compromised on the asking run-rate. Rohit Sharma held one end with all the class and elegance and along with his skipper Virat Kohli, he raised an 89-run stand off just 57 balls. England did manage to remove Kohli from the crease but failed to create a big enough opening to trouble the visiting team.
Where England lost the match? Umm... From 103/1 in 9.1 overs to 198/9 in 20 overs. They fell short of a challenging total in spite of having a strong launching pad. Reminds me of a phrase - When you aim high, you set yourself up to fall far! The approach while batting for the Englishmen was to keep going for runs even if wickets are falling. Cannot fault them for doing so on a stamp size ground but then they should have planned it in a better manner. Also, one should give credit where it's due. The Indian bowlers who were under the cosh after taking a hammering showed a lot of character by bouncing back.
Emphatic win for India! Rohit Sharma was the architect of it as he stroked a magnificent century. Not to forget Hardik Pandya though. First he did with the ball by picking a 4-fer and then played a nice cameo to make India's path smooth to a series win. Clinical stuff from the Men in Blue.
18.4
C Jordan to H Pandya, SIX! Pandya has nailed it! Jordan serves a slower delivery again but lands it right in the hitting zone of Hardik Pandya. He just swings his bat and dismisses it over long on for a biggie. A 50-run stand in only 23 balls. INDIA WIN BY 7 WICKETS AND TAKE THE SERIES 2-1!
18.3
C Jordan to H Pandya, Slower in pace and outside off, punched down to covers.
18.2
C Jordan to R Sharma, HUNDRED FOR ROHIT SHARMA! His third in this format, only Colin Munro has these many in T20Is. A nice little dab to third man for a single to reach there. The Indian dugout is on its feet. Yet another scintillating knock by the Hitman!
18.1
C Jordan to R Sharma, FOUR! What a hit! An overpitched delivery outside off, Rohit takes the aerial route and drills it over covers for a boundary. Moves to 99!

Over 18 India 190/3/No

17.6
D Willey to H Pandya, FOUR! Width on offer outside off, Pandya stays back and just dabs it down to third man for a boundary. India within a striking distance. Rohit also only 5 away from a century. 9 needed more.
17.5
D Willey to H Pandya, FOUR! A full toss this time, Pandya latches onto it and throws his bat at it. His bottom hand comes off the handle but he still manages to tonk it from the middle. It flies over cover-point and beats the dive of Stokes in the deep.
17.4
D Willey to H Pandya, SIX! Into the crowd! This guy has all the range when it comes to play big shots. Willey delivers it full and around off, Hardik gives it the full whack of his bat and sends it whistling over covers for a boundary.
17.3
D Willey to R Sharma, It's been driven superbly through the covers. They pick up a single.
17.2
D Willey to R Sharma, FOUR! Wonderful shot! Uses his crease superbly. It's fuller in length around middle, Rohit shuffles across a bit and paddles it over backward square leg for a boundary. Nearly went all the way.
17.1
D Willey to H Pandya, Fullish and outside off, driven through covers for a single.

Over 17 India 170/3/No

David Willey returns for his final spell.
16.6
J Ball to H Pandya, Yorker outside off, dug out to third man for a run. 15 from the over. All the good work done in the previous two overs (where only 7 runs came) has gone down the drain.
16.5
J Ball to R Sharma, The batsman guides it to third man. They pick up a single.
16.4
J Ball to R Sharma, FOUR! Third boundary of the over. Short in length around off, Sharma pulls it off his front foot and places it nicely. Bisects the square leg fielder and the mid-wicket fielder to send it to the fence.
16.3
J Ball to H Pandya, Taps it down to backward point for a single.
16.2
J Ball to H Pandya, FOUR! And then he can do this as well. Placed his shot behind point. The length is altered by Ball. He goes very full and outside off, Hardik squeezes it out for a boundary. It is already looking like a great move to promote Hardik.
16.1
J Ball to H Pandya, FOUR! Bang! Back of a length ball around off, Pandya shifts his weight sideways and smashes it over mid off for a boundary. He is an exceptional hitter of a cricket ball.

Over 16 India 155/3/No

Jake Ball is back into the attack. 44 required off 24 balls.
15.6
A Rashid to H Pandya, 1 run.
15.5
A Rashid to R Sharma, Shorter in length, cut away with the spin to sweeper cover for a run.
15.4
A Rashid to R Sharma, Outside off, tapped towards short third man. Pandya wants a run but Rohit rightly sends him back.
15.3
A Rashid to H Pandya, Full and in line of the stumps, Pandya lofts it towards long on for a single.
15.2
A Rashid to H Pandya, Floated outside off, Pandya sees it through.
15.1
A Rashid to R Sharma, On a flatter trajectory outside off, Rohit punches it through covers to rotate strike.

Over 15 India 151/3/No

14.6
C Jordan to H Pandya, No run.
Hardik Pandya gets a promotion. 48 needed off 31 balls.
14.5
C Jordan to V Kohli, OUT! Another sharp catch in the field. This time a return catch. Jordan takes it with ease. Mind you, that wasn't so easy. But then Chris is an exceptional fielder.
14.4
C Jordan to R Sharma, A low full toss on off, it's flicked to deep mid-wicket for a single.
14.3
C Jordan to R Sharma, Two dot balls now. Another mistimed drive by Rohit, this time he finds the extra cover fielder. So far so good by Chris.
14.2
C Jordan to R Sharma, Very full and around off, Rohit goes hard at it and mistimes his shot back to the bowler.
14.1
C Jordan to V Kohli, Slower delivery, short and around off, Kohli pulls it to deep mid-wicket for a single. 150 comes up for India, 49 needed more.
14.1
C Jordan to V Kohli, Wide! Jordan bowls it full and wide outside off, maybe just wide of the tramline. Kohli leaves it alone.
