Alex Hales keeps nerve as England square T20 series with India

Rohit Sharma's elegant unbeaten century made it a walk in the park for India as they cruised to a seven-wicket victory against England to clinch the three-match T20 global series 2-1 in Bristol on Sunday. The 24-year-old returned career-best figures of 4/38.

Roy, though, didn't stop playing his shots as he hit a big six to take England past the 100 mark in the 10th over but in the same over, Roy fell for 67, giving Deepak Chahar his first global wicket on his debut.

England set the tourists a target of 198 to win, and looked to be making good early progress when Jake Ball caught Shikhar Dhawan for five off the bowling of David Willey.

Top scorer for Pakistan as they amassed 194 for 7 from their 20 overs was Fakhar Zaman, who knocked up a blistering 73 off just 42 balls at the top of the innings.

India stand on the cusp of a sixth successive T20I series' win - a run stretching back to their 2-1 win over New Zealand at home in November 2017.

With India still needing 48 runs for victory and five overs remaining, Pandya was promoted up the order.

The enigmatic all-rounder did not have much to do with the bat but was the leading wicket-taker for India in the series. India were probably on top of their game today, and we weren't.

He and Hardik Pandya closed out the match with eight balls to spare.

The England bowler says they still have a lot of confidence in themselves as they look to bounce back from their defeat to India on Friday.

Hardik Pandya was India's most successful bowler with 4-38 off four overs.

Darwan was dismissed by Jason Roy's throw and quick-thinking by England captain Eoin Morgan who referred the decision to the TV umpire and was proved correct. England lost four wickets for 46 runs before Ben Stokes (14) and Jonny Bairstow (25 off 14 balls) had a 37-run partnership. Dhoni also took 5 catches in the match, also the most in a T20I by any wicketkeeper. It is a stark reminder of their poor winning ratio nevertheless, having won only 5 out of their last 10 T20 internationals.

Trouble, however, came to the crease in the form of Hales (58 from 41), who played a steady innings throughout, and with 12 runs needed off the last over, smashed Bhuvneshwar Kumar out of the park in the first delivery, before hitting the next one for a boundary, effectively ending the game. Alex [Hales] always makes it hard, particularly in T20 cricket.

Kaul finally ended the carnage by rattling the stumps as Buttler tried to swipe across the line.

Chahar bowled a superb slower ball to spoil Roy's timing, only to feather an edge to wicketkeeper star MS Dhoni.

Chasing 149, England didn't get off to the best start as Umesh Yadav (2-36) bowled Jason Roy (15) in the third over with a attractive inswinger.India though desperately wanted Jos Buttler's (14) wicket, and the desperation grew when Kohli dropped him at mid-off off Umesh in the fifth over.

Kohli it was who fell for 43 after a brilliant catch from Chris Jordan off his own bowling to leave the score on 151-3. A 2-1 victory wouldn't be enough as that would keep England on 125 points and India on 123.
