Rohit ton, Pandya career-best give India T20I honours

Michael Vaughan played 82 Tests and 86 One Day Internationals for England from 1999 to 2008

India defeated England by seven wickets in a thrilling third and final T20 at Bristol to claim the three-match series 2-1. India lost two early wickets in the chase but a stand between Rohit and captain Virat Kohli steadied the ship for the side.

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).

A six brought up Roy's half-century from 23 balls - the joint second quickest for England in T20s - and the hosts looked set for a total in excess of 200.

England had got off to a flier, reaching 43 off four overs and 118 for two of 10 overs before being reeled in by the Indian bowlers and posting a total that was 20 or 30 runs short. However, India's bowlers fought back in the final overs with Hardik Pandya leading the way.

The three-match series is levelled at 1-1.

The sides start a three-game one-day worldwide series on Thursday before playing five Tests.

Roy was caught behind shortly after off the bowling of Deepak Chahar.

Although there's no fixed date for when Playgrounds will return, Epic has detailed a bunch of changes for the next version. In Fortnite Playground v2, Epic Games is hoping to give players the ability to choose teams, in groups of 1v1 or 2v2.

The Indian captain began to gain in confidence as he hit another six off Plunkett before he fell victim of Jordan in the 15th over, caught and bowled by the bowler in a soft dismissal. They got the team off to a flying start.

The 24-year-old had a nightmare start to his afternoon when he conceded 22 from his first over before bouncing back with a match-winning performance.

England left Joe Root off their side to make room for Ben Stokes who had a month off with a hamstring injury.

"Talking about the run chase, Kohli said, "(Hardik) Pandya is a really good all-round cricketer.

England's Chris Jordan, centre, celebrates with David Willey and Eoin Morgan after catching KL Rahulthe, during the 3rd IT20 Series cricket match between England and India, at the Brightside Ground, in Bristol, England, Sunday July 8, 2018. "There was a lot more clarity in the shots that we played". Rohit Sharma scored a hundred and they got home with 7 wickets and 8 balls to spare. I don't like to look at hindsight and say we could have added another bowler. We had to make the batsmen feel like they would make mistakes. At one stage we thought they'd end up getting 225-230 which would've been tough.

"On a good wicket, small ground, we should be better than that". Applied decent pressure on the batsmen and pulled the game back nicely. The character we showed is something we're very proud of.
