Story of the match as India seal IT20 series win over England

13 July 2018

India beat England by seven wickets to win the T20 worldwide series 2-1 at Bristol on Sunday.

It is not out of place to mention that Team India is now leading the three-match T20I series 1-0 after their remarkable eight-wicket win at Old Trafford.

Rohit Sharma was the star of the show in Bristol as he hit an unbeaten century off just 56 balls, including five sixes and 11 fours.

Jordan also took a terrific return catch off his own bowling to dismiss Virat Kohli, while Jake Ball also hauled in an impressive grab low to his left at short fine-leg to dismiss Dhawan early on.

On the other hand, England will feel that they should have posted more than 198-9 from their 20 overs given the great start that Jason Roy gave them by scoring 67 in quick time.

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.

After England squared the series in Cardiff last Friday India needed to win to make it seven successive worldwide T20 series win in succession.

Pandya took 4-38, his best figures in T20 cricket and MS Dhoni became the first player to take five catches in worldwide T20 and ran out Chris Jordan on the last ball of England's innings for good measure.

Bumrah's absence, particularly in the T20 series against England would have hurt the visitors much more as the lanky Gujarat bowler, along with his swing-mate Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, makes the Indian attack the toughest to deal with both at the start and at the end of the innings in the shortest format of the game.

"I was just chopping and changing trying to find a wicket, trying to be as unpredictable as we could but it didn't work". His last hundred also came against England, in the fifth Test at Chennai on December 16, 2016, wherein he scored 199 runs. In the 14th over, Chahal missed a chance to dismiss Eoin Morgan (then on 4), failing to latch onto a high catch at cover only to end up banging his head on the ground. Dhoni completed the catch this time around. With both teams winning one match each will battle for the series in the decider on Sunday.
