Share

Sharma was imperious as India clinched a series win in England.

Rohit played the same role for India which Roy played for England as he tonked the bowlers to all parts of the ground.

The other opener Rohit Sharma was in good touch as he hit Liam Plunkett for two sixes and a four in the fourth over to build up the momentum of the Indian run chase.

Rohit was adjudged man of the match as well as player of the series.

KL Rahul brilliant who scored brilliant century in the first match failed to perform in the second match just adding 6 runs. "Jason Roy and Jos Buttler proved what a dominant force they are up top and created a great platform for us to capitalize on and we didn't do it justice. when a guy like Rohit goes out and peels off a hundred it's very hard to defend on a ground like this". He really did play brilliantly.

Kohli said: "The comeback from the bowlers was outstanding - I thought they would end up getting 225 or 230 which would have been tough".

India are already without the services of pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah for the series and therefore, the job of rattling the oppositions batting-order remains with the wrist-spinners with fast bowlers Umesh Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar not having made a very strong impression just yet.

The target of 199 runs was not less but the wicket condition was in favour of batsmen. Afghanistan's Mohammad Shahzad had five in an innings prior to this. But while the home team's slide started at this stage, India overcame the sluggish phase and marched ahead of England's respective score to consistently bring down the required rate and the pressure, if any. India began well with openers Rohit Sharma, and Shikhar Dhawan struck some exceptional shots. 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.

Ben Stokes was introduced in the seventh over and he made an immediate impact by conceding just two runs from that over. Following this T20I, these two teams will meet soon in ODI.

Riding on Alex Hales and Jonny Bairstow's innings, England managed to surpass India's 148 in the last over of the match. The way he bowled gave him confidence.

"We did a lot of things right today - particularly that platform set".
