Hales leads England to dramatic win over India

David Willey was seen exchanging words with Bhuvneshwar Kumar over the issue of aborted run-ups

"I hope I can carry that confidence forward and use the form and make it big". "(Thanks for helping my 19th over prediction come true!)", Tendulkar's tweet read. That India played spin well in both matches will also be a factor.

Congratulating India on their win, Tendulkar further tweeted, "Perfect weather. ideal conditions and a flawless result for #TeamIndia".

Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya credited Rohit Sharma for the team's comprehensive win in the series-clinching third and final T20 global against England, saying it was a special innings from the elegant batsman after two ordinary outings. In terms of ICC Rankings, a 2-0 series' lead will allow India to close the gap with second-placed Australia, while a 3-0 whitewash will help them overleap to second behind top-ranked Pakistan.

Chris Jordan broke the 89-run partnership between Rohit and Kohli but it was too late as Rohit had done enough damage. The duo stabilised the innings and accelerated their scoring rate further as they found the gap several times. He made 43 off 29 balls leaving India in a comfortable positing at 151/3 in 14.5 overs.

Rohit Sharma scored a rapid unbeaten 100 against England in the third T20.

Fresh from a clinical eight-wicket victory over England, India will aim to clinch the series when they face the hosts in the second Twenty-20 worldwide of the three-match rubber at Sophia Gardens here on Friday. Things could have been much different and much worse for India going by the first four balls he bowled which went for 22 runs with two sixes and two fours.

England face a tough task whether to stick with Jos Buttler in the opening role or bring him down the batting order for England's T20 clash against India on Friday.

Jason Roy (67) was England's best performer with the bat, while Jos Buttler (33) and Alex Hales (30) both provided support, but they were the only England players to reach 30.

Deepak Chahar's first over in worldwide T20 cricket, and the first of the innings, cost 13 runs with Buttler accounting for 12 of them and within four overs England were 43-0.

Chahar bowled a superb slower ball to spoil Roy's timing, only to feather an edge to wicketkeeper star MS Dhoni. The match will not be played under lights either, which may tilt the balance more towards the batsmen.

But the all-rounder came roaring back to first remove Morgan and Hales in the same over and then repeating the same in the 18th over to send Stokes and Bairstow back on his fourth and sixth delivery.

With the score being below par, India's bowlers took it on their shoulders to make the most out of the match.

However in order to capture the series, Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan will have to bat cautiously and keep their wickets intact. On one side England treat ODI's as an extended version of the T20 format and on the other hand, India play it the old fashioned way by keeping wickets in hand before going berserk in the last 10-15 overs.
