18.4 6

SIX! Pandya has nailed it! Jordan serves a slower delivery again but lands it right in the hitting zone of Hardik Pandya. He just swings his bat and dismisses it over long on for a biggie. A 50-run stand in only 23 balls. INDIA WIN BY 7 WICKETS AND TAKE THE SERIES 2-1!

18.3 0

Slower in pace and outside off, punched down to covers.

18.2 1

HUNDRED FOR ROHIT SHARMA! His third in this format, only Colin Munro has these many in T20Is. A nice little dab to third man for a single to reach there. The Indian dugout is on its feet. Yet another scintillating knock by the Hitman!

18.1 4

FOUR! What a hit! An overpitched delivery outside off, Rohit takes the aerial route and drills it over covers for a boundary. Moves to 99!

End of Over : 18 20 Runs IND: 190/3
17.6 4

FOUR! Width on offer outside off, Pandya stays back and just dabs it down to third man for a boundary. 20 from the over. India within a striking distance. Rohit also only 5 away from a century. 9 needed more for a win.

17.5 4

FOUR! A full toss this time, Pandya latches onto it and throws his bat at it. His bottom hand comes off the handle but he still manages to tonk it from the middle. It flies over cover-point and beats the dive of Stokes in the deep.

17.4 6

SIX! Into the crowd! This guy has all the range when it comes to playing big shots. Willey delivers it full and around off, Hardik gives it the full whack of his bat and sends it whistling over extra cover for a maximum.

17.3 1

It's been driven superbly through the covers. They pick up a single.

17.2 4

FOUR! Wonderful shot! Uses his crease superbly. It's fuller in length around off, Rohit shuffles across a bit and paddles it over backward square leg for a boundary. Nearly went all the way.

17.1 1

Fullish and outside off, driven through covers for a single.

End of Over : 17 15 Runs IND: 170/3
16.6 1

Yorker outside off, dug out to third man for a run. 15 from the over. All the good work done in the previous two overs (where only 7 runs came) has gone down the drain.

16.5 1

The batsman guides it to third man. They pick up a single.

16.4 4

FOUR! Third boundary of the over. Short in length around off, Sharma pulls it off his front foot and places it nicely. Bisects the square leg fielder and the mid-wicket fielder to send it to the fence.

Summary

The third and final T20 International between India and England takes place at the County Ground in Bristol. The IND vs ENG 3rd T201 2018 will begin at 06:30 PM IST, with toss at 06:00 PM. India take on England during a full-fledged tour this summer. The Virat Kohli-led India will be in England for three T20 Internationals, three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and five Test matches. India’s tour of England 2018 kicks-off with T20I series on July 03. The second and third T20Is will be played on July 06 and 07 respectively. Following the T20Is, the three-match ODI series begins on July 12 with subsequent matches on July 14 and 17.

 

The important part of India’s tour of England, five Tests, begins on August 01. And the Tests series ends with fifth and final Test on September 07. So, on a challenging England tour, India will be tested across formats.

 

The last time India toured England four years ago in 2014, the visitors lost the five-match series 3-1. However, the then MS Dhoni-led side did well to win the five-match ODI series 3-1. But lost the one-off T20I on the tour. It was India’s performance in the Tests that had them face some serious criticism. Star India batsman and now the captain of the side Virat Kohli managed only 134 runs from five matches and averaged just 13.40. Kohli has improved a lot since then with some good performances in Australia and South Africa. The right-hander, known for his determination, will be keen to dish out a solid performance this time around.

 

India and England have played 57 Tests in England. No surprises that the home team has won the majority, 30, of them. India have managed to win just six while 21 Tests between these two teams have ended in draws. When it comes to India vs England in ODIs in England, the home side have won 19 out of 38 matches. India, on the other hand, have won 15. In the game’s shortest format, India have lost all three T20Is so far against England in England.

 

India T20I Squad: Virat Kohli(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Umesh Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Deepak Chahar.
