India, England match to be a cracker in the decider

  • India are unlikely to tinker with their playing eleven

Opener Rohit Sharma's brilliant unbeaten century guided India to victory over England in the T20 global series at Bristol on Sunday.

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.

India rarely looked troubled in their run-chase, despite losing Shikhar Dhawan early to a superb, low catch from Ball at short fine leg. Pandya hit 33 not out off just 14 balls as India reached to 201 for 3 in 18.4 overs.

On Sunday, while Virat Kohli-led Men-in-Blue will aim to get back the momentum by winning the match as well the series, Eoin Morgan's squad will look to end the series on a positive note by winning the series.

In order to ensure that the good work done in the first match doesn't go to waste, India will have to continue their dominance. That contest is notable because India were 1-0 down, and came back to win the series with Chahal taking career-best 6-25 in the series' decider at Bengaluru.

"We have a fantastic supporting staff and leaders who give us huge confidence to go and express ourselves".

Rohit, in the next over, completed his hundred by dabbing the ball towards backward point while Pandya hit Jordan for a six to guide India over the line.

"If we had Joe as a sixth bowler - which we needed today - an extra spinner against India didn't really match up that well". But this match appeared to have more than most, especially during an eventful England innings which began with an opening stand of 94 in under eight overs and ended with five wickets falling for 21 runs from only 15 balls. His innings included 10 fours and 5 sixes. Dhoni also took 5 catches in the match, also the most in a T20I by any wicketkeeper. 225 or 235 would have been more of a hard chase (on that ground). Pandya was the pick of the bowlers, accounting for four wickets. While it didn't help Root in particular as he failed to read the googly for a second match running, it did allow Alex Hales to build partnerships and anchor their win.

England's big hitters at the top of the order Jos Buttler and Jason Roy were both out cheaply trying to get the early run rate up to Umesh Kumar.

Siddharth Kaul NA Playing his first game in English conditions, the right arm pacer picked up 2 wickets and conceded 35 runs. Chahar then got his first worldwide scalp with a slower delivery that the unsafe Roy flicked to Dhoni behind the stumps. Things slowed down after the fall of Jason Roy who scored 67 runs in just 31 balls hitting seven sixes and in the quest to get a enormous total, the middle order tried too hard which brought about their downfall.

Until Tuesday, Rahul had gone 564 runs without breaching the three-figure mark.
