India thump England to clinch T20 series after Rohit Sharma century

IND vs ENG Live Score

IND vs ENG Live Score

- India have now played eight three-match T20I series, winning all eight. Seven wickets went down in the final 10 overs of England's innings and Ben Stokes - returning to the side after a hamstring injury in place of Joe Root - bowled smartly to restrict India at the start of their reply.

During the game, MS Dhoni got his name registered in the history books becoming the first wicket-keeper to take 50 catches in T20s and also the first keeper to take 5 catches in a single T20 match. "#ENGvIND" For the unversed, chasing a mammoth target of 199, Rohit Sharma gave India a blistering start before his fellow partner Shikhar Dhawan went back to the pavilion after being dismissed for five runs.

Brief scores: India 201/3 in 18.4 overs (Rohit Sharma 100 not out, Virat Kohli 43) beat England 198/9 in 20 overs (Jason Roy 67, Jos Buttler 34; Hardik Pandya 4/38, Siddharth Kaul 2/35).

England had reached 73 off no loss at the powerplay point, Rohit (39 off 20 balls) ensured India were not far behind, being 70 for two after six overs.

Kaul though made amends soon after by getting India the much-needed breakthrough as Buttler failed to make much use of the reprieve, However, if it was Buttler's swing and miss that put the breaks on England, Roy's caught-behind - for Chahar's maiden wicket - pushed them into a slide.

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

The fourth spot is held by the Missionary Ridge Fire , which ripped through 71,739 acres, also north of Durango. The fire is burning in Costilla and Huerfano counties, and the region has been declared a disaster area by Gov.

Root has only made 72 runs in five innings across the two limited-overs formats since being shunted down to No7 in England's world-record score at Trent Bridge three weeks ago. Rahul fell as Jordan took a brilliant catch in the deep. Hardik Pandya finished with figures 4-0-38-4.

Kohli was left in disbelief when he drove a delivery straight back to Jordan, who took a catch at waist height, but Pandya picked up where the captain had left off. Roy notched up a half-century.

But India's strength in depth meant the runs just kept coming.

England returned well after their first-match surrender to Indian spinner Kuldeep Yadav and did not let Indian spinners dominate in the second game.

Unfortunately for England, the Indian batsmen also enjoyed the bright sunshine and short boundaries in Bristol. "They played Kuldeep really well today, and that was the difference in the middle overs this time".

'I think the comeback from the bowlers was outstanding, we thought they would get 225-230. Rohit Sharma scored a hundred and they got home with 7 wickets and 8 balls to spare. "This series for us has produced three different performances".
