England vs India, 3rd T20I: Player Ratings
India completed by maiden T20I series win on English soil when they defeated England by seven wickets in the third and deciding T20I at Bristol to win the series 2-1.
Put in to bat by Virat Kohli, England got off to a rollicking start, reaching 70 in the Powerplay overs thanks to some blistering batting from Jason Roy and Jos Buttler. The latter fell soon, but the former carried on, pulverising the Indians to all parts of the ground.
But once Roy fell, the Indian bowlers began to plug the hosts, in particular, Hardik Pandya who registered career-best figures of 4 for 38 in his four overs to peg them back.
In reply, India lost Shikhar Dhawan early again, but Rohit Sharma delivered when it mattered the most, making an unbeaten 100 to take India home with seven wickets in hand.
